It is important to keep in mind that the Nevada statute of limitations applies to these cases. Las Vegas injury victims have two years from the date an injury occurs to file a personal injury claim against an alleged negligent party in order to recover the compensation they need.
Every state is responsible for putting a time limit, call the statute of limitations, on personal injury cases. In Nevada, the personal injury statute of limitations is two years from the date an injury occurs. This means that victims of personal injuries have a two-year window with which to file their lawsuit against the alleged negligent party. Failing to file a lawsuit within this statutory timeframe where was result in them being unable to recover compensation for their losses.

A skilled Las Vegas personal injury attorney will be responsible for proving the elements of negligence necessary to show liability in these cases.
Even if a person is partially to blame for the incident that caused their injury, they may still be able to recover compensation for their losses. Nevada operates under a “modified comparative negligence” system. When we turn to Section 41.141 of the Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS), we can see that an injury victim is able to recover compensation so long as they are 50% or less responsible for their injuries. Any person who is more than 50% responsible for their injury will be entitled to receive no compensation at all.
Those who are 50% or less responsible for their injury can receive compensation, but the total amount they are awarded will be reduced based on their percentage of fault. For example, if a person sustains a head injury in a vehicle accident and incurs $100,000 in total expenses, but a jury determines that they were 20% at fault for the incident, they would only receive $80,000 in total compensation.
If you sustain an injury caused by the careless or negligent actions of another person, there may be various types of compensation available for your case.
