What you need to know when you’ve been hurt in an accident or on someone’s property.
As you go about your daily life, you will find yourself in many different situations that can result in personal injury because of another party’s action or inaction. Suffering a severe injury has consequences that can seep into all aspects of your life.
Victims must not only cope with the physical pain of injury, but they must also deal with the financial burden that often accompanies a severe injury. In addition to medical bills, if the injured person provides some or all of their household income, families suffer if they cannot work.
If you have been injured in an accident, there is no time to waste. By consulting immediately with a Neahusan Law personal injury specialist, you can help your case and increase the chances of getting the critical care you need.
Any type of accident in which one person causes injuries to another can be the subject of a personal injury claim. At Neahusan Law, we specialize in helping clients with legal counsel for any injury caused by accidents.

Too often, the legal system and insurance companies are uncaring and difficult to navigate, which is why our focus is to help community members through this process and seek equitable justice and fairness on their behalf. Neahusan Law is proud to be an ally!
If you have been the victim of a personal injury through no fault of your own, don’t go at it alone. You need to be experienced Neahusan Law attorneys on your side fighting for you. The job of insurance companies is to lessen their financial obligations, and they employ many tactics to achieve that goal. Neahusan Law attorneys have seen their tricks and are prepared to take them on.
Many people believe that they can settle with insurance companies without the help of an attorney. At the same time, while that is possible, hard data has proven that those who retain a personal injury attorney get up to three times more compensation than those who settle their cases.
A Neahusan Law personal injury attorney will ensure that the settlement the insurance company offers is fair and reasonable and covers most, if not all, of your injury costs.
Economic damages may include compensation for the following:
Furthermore, a court will award punitive damages if a defendant’s grossly negligent or intentional actions caused the accident.
When you attempt to settle with an insurance company on your own, you may miss out on general and punitive damages to which you may be entitled, such as compensation for pain and suffering or loss of companionship. The insurance company may offer to pay for your current medical costs and possibly lost wages, but likely nothing else, such as future medical expenses, future lost wages, or pain and suffering.
Nevada law states that whenever any person shall suffer personal injury by a wrongful act, neglect, or default of another, the person causing the injury is liable to the person injured for damages. Any person in Nevada who seeks to recover damages from the liable party through a claim filed in civil court has two years from the date of the accident to do so.
Some accidents and injuries don’t require legal representation, even when they were caused by another party. Yet, if you have had to miss work, an insurance company is denying your claims, or you have suffered a serious injury that requires hospitalization, you should contact a Neahusan Law attorney. A qualified Neahusan Law attorney can evaluate your case, determine your eligibility for compensation, and help you decide which course of action is best for your circumstances.
Personal injury claims that result in a settlement or verdict in the plaintiff’s favor can vary from 200 dollars to over 2 million dollars. Your Neahusan Law attorney, often with the help of experts, will value your claim based on several factors, such as the severity of your injury, the likelihood of a full recovery, your total medical expenses, and the amount of time you missed from work. Injuries that result in permanent disability and scars and those that were a result of gross negligence or intentional harm often have a higher value.
A Neahusan Law personal injury attorney will advocate for you and help you seek justice against those who have caused you harm, specifically with the following tasks:
Your claim can take anywhere from weeks to years to settle or go to court, depending on the circumstances of the event that led to your injury. If the circumstances of your injury include multiple parties and shared liability plays a factor, you can expect insurance companies and legal defense teams will not settle easily. These cases often require more lengthy litigation.
If you have been injured due to someone else’s negligence or recklessness, hiring an experienced personal injury lawyer is crucial. A Neahusan Law attorney can guide the legal process of recovering damages, the timely filing of a personal injury lawsuit in the proper jurisdiction, and representation at all court proceedings.
