Personal injury is the field of law that involves a plaintiff’s injuries and a defendant’s negligence, recklessness or carelessness. If one person (the defendant) causes another person’s (the plaintiff’s) injuries, the defendant may owe the plaintiff financial compensation. At Claggett & Sykes Law Firm, our Las Vegas injury lawyers help clients pursue and obtain fair compensation for their damages across many different claim types.
In our law firm’s history, we have helped clients with all types of personal injuries: broken bones, head injuries, traumatic brain injuries, burns, spinal cord injuries, traumatic amputations, lacerations and more. We tailor our legal efforts according to each client’s unique case type, injuries, needs and goals.
The steps you take directly after an injury are important to the overall success of your personal injury claim.
The more information about your case you can take down, the stronger your claim will be. To learn more about car crash injury lawsuits, contact one of our experienced Las Vegas car accident lawyers to learn more about filing a claim.
Negligence plays a key role in most personal injury cases in Nevada. The burden of proof in a typical personal injury case requires the plaintiff to establish through a preponderance of the evidence (meaning more likely to be true than not true) that the defendant was negligent and that his or her negligence caused the injury in question. Determining negligence often takes an in-depth analysis of the facts of the case.
A Las Vegas injury lawyer from Claggett & Sykes Law Firm can help with claim investigation in Las Vegas. We can send investigators back to the scene of the accident, gather evidence such as police reports and medical documents, interview eyewitnesses, and hire experts to help prove your case. Our attorneys can also identify the defendant in your injury claim on your behalf. The defendant could be a driver, a doctor, a property owner, an employer, a product manufacturer, the government or a combination of parties.
Nevada’s personal injury statute of limitations is two years of the date of the injury or injury discovery, with a few exceptions. Speak to our Las Vegas injury lawyers as soon as possible if you were injured in an accident to ensure you do not miss your deadline. Once we have determined who caused your injury and was at fault, our team can fill out the proper claims paperwork to initiate a lawsuit in the Clark County civil courts. It is up to you to file a personal injury lawsuit; the police or the city will not do so for you. Our injury attorneys can assist you with the legwork it takes to bring a claim in Las Vegas, including handling confusing paperwork and making sure you meet the statute of limitations.
The value of your personal injury case may depend on the extent of your injuries, whether you have a disability, how long you will be out of work, how much the accident impacted your life, the actions of the at-fault party and many other factors.
You may be able to recover losses for your past and future medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, property damage, lost quality of life, and loss of consortium. Family members can also receive payment for funeral and burial costs if a loved one passes away. The Las Vegas courts will generally give greater compensation awards for more serious injuries. You will likely be eligible for greater recovery if you suffered catastrophic injuries such as traumatic brain injuries, spine injuries, or amputations.
