Neither residents nor visitors to Las Vegas should ever have to worry about sustaining an injury caused by the negligence of another person. Unfortunately, there are times when injuries do occur. At DiMarco Araujo Montevideo, we are here to help if you need a Las Vegas personal injury lawyer. Here, our team wants to discuss some of the most common injuries that victims in this area can sustain as well as how these injuries occur.

Most Common Las Vegas Injuries

There are many types of injuries that can occur in and around Las Vegas, and these injuries can happen to both visitors and residents alike. At DiMarco Araujo Montevideo, our personal injury lawyers in Vegas regularly help clients who have been injured while staying at hotels and visiting casinos. The entire economy of the area is built around the casino and entertainment industry, but there are times when property owners and operators are negligent and cause harm to patrons. Trip and fall or slip and fall injuries are very common in Las Vegas.

Aside from hotel and casino injuries, it is also not uncommon for clients to sustain injuries caused by:

  • Food poisoning at restaurants
  • Vehicle accidents
  • Rideshare accidents
  • Bus accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Swimming pool incidents

We must not forget the tens of thousands of workers in this area (some of which are residents, some seasonal) that can also sustain severe on-the-job injuries. They, too, deserve fair compensation when injuries occur.

Injuries in these incidents vary widely in severity, and can include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries with paralysis
  • Broken and dislocated bones
  • Severe lacerations or amputations
  • Severe burns
  • Drowning or near-drowning
  • Internal organ damage or bleeding
  • And more

What Is the Time Limit for Las Vegas Personal Injury Case?

It is important that any person harmed due to the negligent actions of somebody else in Las Vegas keep in mind that there are time limits to file these claims. The Nevada statute of limitations for personal injury cases is two years from the date an injury occurs. Failing to file a claim within this two-year window will result in a victim being unable to secure the compensation they need for their claim.

Can Victims Secure Compensation for These Cases?

If you or somebody you care about has sustained an injury caused by the negligence of another person in the Las Vegas area, the team at DiMarco Araujo Montevideo is ready to help with your case. After conducting a complete investigation into the incident, we will work to secure the following compensation on your behalf:

  • Coverage of all injury-related medical bills
  • Lost income if you are unable to work
  • Any household out-of-pocket expenses
  • Pain and suffering damages
  • Loss of personal enjoyment damages
  • Possible punitive damages against a grossly negligent party
