Every personal injury lawsuit will have unique elements that will make it differ from other cases. However, there are some primary factors that will be considered in determining the amount of compensation to pursue for accident victims. They are as follows:
Pain or Suffering. If your personal injury has left you with long or short term discomfort, you can factor this into your financial compensation. Even if the pain is emotional, the Las Vegas injury attorneys at Koch & Brim can help you determine what you are entitled to.
Medical Bills. Even very minor injuries can rack up extensive medical bills. You might need to consider not only the previous medical expenses, but also factor in any additional medical treatments that you will need for your injuries.
Loss of Wages. If your injuries are severe enough, they might keep you from returning to your previous job functions in the same capacity. If you were forced to take an extended period of time off of work to recover, you can factor in the missing wages and loss of earning capacity.
It can be critical to hire an attorney to represent you during a personal injury claim in Las Vegas. The insurance company that receives your claim does not want what’s best for you or your family. Insurance companies are for-profit organizations that put themselves before their clients. This can make it difficult to recover the financial compensation that you require for your medical bills. An attorney, on the other hand, works for you. Your personal injury attorney will go the extra mile to maximize your financial recovery.
With a Las Vegas injury attorney from Koch & Brim by your side, you can focus on healing from your injuries while we take care of the rest of your claim for you. Our law firm is equipped to handle personal injury cases including:
Our personal injury firm has experience going up against powerful and intimidating adversaries, including Fortune 500 companies, major corporations and insurance providers.

That being said, we are settlement-minded and use our attention to detail to find the best possible resolution for each case and client.
A Las Vegas personal injury attorney can also help you by determining who is liable, or legally and financially responsible, for your accident. Our lawyers can return to the scene of your accident, hire highly qualified experts and take many other steps to identify all negligent parties. Naming multiple defendants means more insurance coverage may be available. Then, we will search for compelling evidence to prove your case and hold these parties accountable.
What is negligence? – In a Las Vegas personal injury case, there usually exists a responsible party that failed to meet certain safety requirements and resulted in the accident or injury. This is considered “Negligence.” If the courts determine that the responsible party failed to meet these requirements, then the victims involved would be liable for damages. The easiest example of this is car accidents. Partial fault can also be a factor in cases in Nevada, so a percentage of fault would have to be determined for both parties, and factored into the compensation amounts.
Negligence has four elements: duty of care, breach of duty, causation and damages. A duty of care is an obligation to act in a reasonable and prudent manner to prevent injury to others. A breach of duty refers to any act or omission that does not fulfill the accepted duty of care. Causation is proof that the defendant’s negligence caused the plaintiff’s injury. Damages refer to the losses suffered by the plaintiff because of the accident or injury.

As an accident victim, your main concern is (and should be) your physical well-being and safety. You may not realize, however, that there are steps you should take to better protect your rights and build a personal injury claim. Taking the right actions can help you recover fair financial compensation for your Las Vegas injury accident. Here’s what to do:
It is always recommended to seek medical attention immediately after experiencing a personal injury, just in case there are any major or unforeseen complications. That being said, you should contact an injury lawyer as soon as you safely can. A lawyer can take on necessary communication with the insurance company and all other parties while you focus on getting medical care.
Be sure you don’t wait too long, though. There is a limited period of time called the Statute of Limitations, in which you can legally submit a claim for personal injuries. In the state of Nevada, the standard statute of limitations for filing a personal injury case is 2 years, according to Nev. Rev. Stat. § 11.190(4)(e) (2016). For a Las Vegas wrongful death claim, it is also 2 years, according to Nev. Rev. Stat. § 11.190(4)(e) (2016). Begin your claim as soon as possible to avoid missing your deadline and losing the ability to file.
