Do I Still Have the Right to Recover Compensation if I’m Partially at Fault for the Accident?
Nevada’s modified comparative negligence rule allows you to still recover compensation for your personal injury claim as long as you are not more than 50% responsible for the accident. However, your damages will be reduced by your degree of fault.
Suppose, you are assigned 20 percent fault for a car accident in Las Vegas. You suffer damages of $100,000. Because you were 20 percent responsible for the accident, your damages are reduced by 20 percent or $20,000. You can still recover the other $80,000 from the negligent defendant or defendants.
Insurance companies often try to pin the blame for the accident on the victim. We will fight against these allegations to try to maximize your award.
What Must I Prove to Win My NV Personal Injury Case?
Most personal injury cases in Nevada are based on the legal concept of negligence.
You will need to prove the following legal elements to recover any compensation for your losses:
- The defendant owed you a duty of care.
- The defendant breached the duty of care.
- The defendant’s breach of the duty of care caused your injuries.
- You suffered harm.
Here is how this might work in a car accident case:
- Duty – The other driver had the duty to follow traffic laws and drive safely.
- Breach of duty – The other driver was texting, speeding, driving drunk, or otherwise driving in an unsafe manner.
- Causation – The defendant’s speeding, texting, etc., was the cause of the accident.
- Damages – You had to pay $10,000 in medical expenses and lost $2,500 in wages.
Your lawyer will help gather and preserve evidence to help you establish each element of the claim. Your standard of proof is by the preponderance of the evidence, which means the facts you allege are more likely true than not true.
What Is the Statute of Limitations for Nevada Personal Injury Cases?
In Nevada, the statute of limitations sets a time limit to take certain legal action. Here, you generally have two years to file a personal injury lawsuit. If you don’t take legal action by the end of two years following the accident, you can be permanently barred from seeking financial recovery through the courts. Don’t lose your right to recover compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, and other losses. Contact a skilled lawyer today for help with your case.
