Centennial Hills Personal Injury Doctrine

Personal injury claims are also known as torts, under tort law. In a broad sense, the aim of tort law is to compensate accident victims by forcing the party at fault to financially reimburse them for the damages they’ve suffered. Certain concepts and provisions are applied nationwide, but for the most part each state has its own personal injury doctrine, which is why it is of vital importance to retain an attorney that is licensed and experienced in your particular state so that you are always within compliance. One important provision for Nevada claimants to remember is known as comparative negligence. 

When most people think of lawsuits, they envision a head-to-battle with a clear-cut victor and loser. This is not necessarily false, although with comparative negligence, all parties are vulnerable to receiving fault so long as the end percentage totals 100. For example, if Driver X is suing Driver Z, the court could rule that the liability be split 55-45, 62-38, 90-10, or any other combination. Any percentage of fault that is assigned to you will be deducted from your end settlement by the same amount (i.e. 30 percent liability would reduce settlement by 30 percent). Additionally, any party that is assigned over 50 percent of the blame is barred from receiving any compensation.

Let us evaluate your situation and determine the best path to take to help you achieve your goals. Give our injury attorneys a call today at 702-529-1011.

The Two Types of Damages Awarded in Nevada Personal Injury Cases

Any legal proceeding in the U.S. is categorized either as civil or criminal– criminal law revolves around crimes, charges, and punishments, whereas civil cases have to do with monetary compensation. Personal injury claims are civil proceedings, and so it is up to the plaintiff’s attorney to successfully prove that the opposing party was negligent/ at fault and should pay for compensation. This also highlights the need for claimants to hire an experienced attorney, so that they can recover the most money possible. 

As you can imagine, each case will have a unique set of damages and therefore there is no standard criteria for determining an exact settlement. Most settlements involve compensatory damages, which are the most common type. They can include: 

  • Medical costs
  • Property damage
  • Lost wages, damage to future earnings
  • Disability 
  • Loss of enjoyment 
  • Pain and suffering 
  • Loss of companionship

In rare cases (about 5 percent of total cases), courts may also decide to award punitive damages. These damages are purely fines, with no direct correlation to compensation. They are meant to be a punishment and a warning for others, and most of the time they are levied against individuals and corporations that are known to be very wealthy.
