Personal Injury Statute of Limitations
Most personal injury actions must be brought within 2 years of the accident or injury. In the event of wrongful death actions, the victim’s family must begin their legal action within two years of the date of death. Once that time passes, the injured victim can no longer bring their lawsuit for compensation.
In special circumstances, there are some exceptions to the Nevada statute of limitations. For some injuries, such as brain trauma or internal damage, the victim might not know about their injury for a while after the accident. In that event, the two-year period does not begin to run until the victim discovers their injury, or reasonably should have done so. Where the victim was a minor at the time of the accident, the statute of limitations does not begin to run until they turn 18. Your personal injury attorney can give you more information on how long you have to file your claim.
How Much Is My Claim Worth?
A common question is, How much is an average personal injury settlement? Because every situation is unique and damages depend heavily upon the facts and circumstances, there is no average settlement amount.
Personal injury settlements are a combination of economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages are monetary: medical bills, property damage, lost wages, etc. Non-economic damages are intangible: emotional distress, pain and suffering, loss of consortium, etc.
Other factors that will be taken into consideration are personal to the victim, such as their age, health, and marital status. Depending on the type of case, the damages might also be affected by insurance coverage limits, such as in the event of car accidents.
Additionally, the State of Nevada follows the comparative negligence rule: a person’s settlement is reduced by their percentage of fault, as determined by the judge and jury. Figuring out a settlement amount is complicated. However, your attorney can help you calculate an estimate of your damages.
