Personal Injury Doctrine for Cases in Nevada

All personal injury litigation falls under a legal category known as tort law. As a whole, tort law is designed to punish the wrongdoing of another by requiring them to financially compensate the injured party. The defendant in a personal injury claim can be a person/people, an insurance company (either yours or opposing), or a company. There are general rules that apply nationwide, but each state also has its own specific guidelines for personal injury cases. In Nevada, one such example would be the state’s policy of “modified comparative negligence.”

Essentially, this means that the liability for an accident will not always be decided as solely belonging to one person, but can be spread around to all parties involved on a percentage scale. So, instead of scoring it 100-0, it could be any combination, such as 75-25, 60-40, etc. The most important thing to consider, however, is that any party who is deemed to be the main cause of an accident (over 50 percent liable) is barred from receiving any compensation, even if other parties share in the blame. This is an important rule to remember, as sometimes a claimant may have to pay a small percentage even if they were more severely injured.

Various Types of Damages Personal Injury Attorneys can Recover

For those who may not be entirely familiar with the U.S. court system, cases are divided into two categories, criminal and civil; all personal injury cases are civil actions, meaning that lawyers will argue over a monetary settlement, not a criminal charge. At first, it may seem like an insurmountable task to wrap up all of your damages into a dollar amount, but that is why it is important to enlist an experienced personal injury attorney to help you with your case. 

Each settlement amount will be unique based on the parameters of both the accident and the resulting injuries. Damages are divided into two categories, compensatory and punitive. Compensatory damages, as you might suspect, are supposed to compensate an accident victim for the financial and emotional impact that their injuries have had on their life. The most common compensatory damages are as follows: 

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

By comparison, punitive damages are much more severe in nature, and rarer– only about 5 percent of all cases involve punitive damages. They are large fines that are meant to punish the defendant and set an example for others not to follow. Usually, courts will award punitive damages in cases where they are confident that the defendant can actually pay them, such as a wealthy business or individual. 

As one of the leading personal injury firms in the nation, our attorneys can navigate through the hiccups of any case, from intake all the way to settlement. We hire a majority of our lawyers directly from insurance defense firms, so that we have the most robust experience at our disposal.
