  • What Is a Personal Injury Claim?

A personal injury claim is a legal claim filed by an injured person against the person or entity responsible for their injuries. The claim seeks compensation for the injured person's medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.

Some of the most common types of personal injury claims we handle include:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Dog bite injuries

Personal injury claims may also take the form of product liability claims, premises liability claims, and more.

  • What Are the Steps in a Personal Injury Claim?

The first step in any personal injury claim is to seek medical attention for your injuries. It is important to get checked out by a doctor, even if you don't think you are seriously injured. Some injuries, such as traumatic brain injuries and whiplash, may not present symptoms right away.

After seeing a doctor, the next step is contacting a personal injury lawyer. At Milan's Legal, we offer free consultations so that you can learn more about your legal rights and options without any obligation.

During your consultation, we will review the facts of your case and discuss whether you have a valid claim. If we believe you have a strong case, we may represent you on a contingency basis, which means you won't owe us anything unless and until we recover compensation for you.

Once we take your case, we will begin the process of gathering evidence and building a strong case for liability and damages. This may involve talking to witnesses, reviewing police reports and medical records, and more.

Once we have gathered all the evidence, we will then send a demand letter to the responsible party or their insurance company. The demand letter will state our legal arguments and explain why the responsible party should pay you the compensation you are owed.

In most cases, the responsible party's insurance company will then make a settlement offer. If we believe the offer is fair, we will advise you to accept it. If not, we will negotiate further, and be prepared to take your case to trial.

  • How Much Is My Personal Injury Claim Worth?

The value of your personal injury claim will depend on several factors, such as the severity of your injuries, whether you have suffered any permanent damage, and whether you are able to return to work.

Some of the damages that may be available in a personal injury claim include:

  • Medical Expenses: Including ambulance bills, hospitalization costs, surgeries, and more
  • Lost Wages: If you are unable to work because of your injuries
  • Pain and Suffering: For the physical and emotional pain caused by your injuries
  • Emotional Distress: For the mental anguish and emotional trauma caused by your injuries
  • Loss of enjoyment of life: If your injuries have prevented you from enjoying activities you once enjoyed
  • Punitive Damages in Personal Injury Claims

In some cases, punitive damages may be available in a personal injury claim. Punitive damages are designed to punish the responsible party for their actions and deter them from engaging in similar conduct in the future.

Punitive damages are not available in all personal injury claims. To be eligible for punitive damages, the plaintiff must typically prove that the defendant's actions were willful, wanton, or reckless.

  • Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Claims in Nevada and Las Vegas

The statute of limitations is the deadline for filing a personal injury claim. In Nevada, the statute of limitations for most personal injury claims is three years from the date of the accident. In Las Vegas, the deadline is two years.

It is important to note that some exceptions to the statute of limitations may extend the deadline in certain cases. For example, if the injured person is a minor, the deadline may be extended.

  • Wrongful Death Claims

If a loved one has died due to another person's negligent or intentional actions, you may be able to file a wrongful death claim. Damages in a wrongful death claim may include funeral and burial expenses, loss of income and benefits, and more.

In Las Vegas, Nevada, the statute of limitations for most wrongful death claims is two years from the date of death.

If you have lost a loved one in wrongful death, we know that no amount of money can make up for your loss. But filing a wrongful death claim can help ease the financial burden and hold the responsible party accountable for their actions.
