An experienced Henderson, Nevada Personal Injury Lawyer may be able to assist you with your car accident claim to ensure that you receive the maximum compensation.
What is a personal injury claim?
A personal injury happens when:
- You have been injured
- Another party is liable for those injuries
If you can prove that someone else injured you and that they are liable for the car accident injuries, you may have a valid personal injury claim and are entitled to compensation.
The most common example of a personal injury case is a car crash. A car accident occurs when a driver fails to exercise reasonable care while driving. Many times, car accidents lead to serious injuries like whiplash that require medical attention. If you were injured in a car accident that was not your fault, you should consult an experienced auto accident lawyer. Other common types of personal injury claims include:
These claims exist because a party had a duty to act with reasonable care, but they failed to do so.
What is the time limit to bring the claim?
If you’ve been injured in an accident, you should speak with an experienced Las Vegas car accident attorney as soon as possible to discuss your options. In Nevada, there is a two year statute of limitations during which accident victims must bring their claims. Nev. Rev. Stat. § 11.190(4)(e) (2016). This means that injury victims have just two years from the date of their injuries to file a personal injury claim. If you wait longer than two years, your claim will be dismissed and you will receive no compensation.
At Anthem Injury Lawyers, our attorneys and experienced trial lawyers will make sure that you file your claim and any other necessary documentation within the correct time period.
What is your claim worth?
Car accident victims will frequently want to know how much their potential personal injury claim is worth. It’s understandable that a victim wants to know the answer to this question – they may be facing expensive medical bills, insurance claims, time out of work, and the costs of replacing their damaged personal property. All of these bills can add up fast and the person who caused the injury should be responsible for paying.
Unfortunately, putting a value on a personal injury claim is not so simple. There are many factors that will affect how much money you will ultimately receive. An experienced personal injury law firm should be able to give you an estimate on the value of your claim.
If you’ve been injured in an accident, it’s important to work with an experienced personal injury attorney who will protect your rights. The law protects innocent victims from the parties that caused them injury. If you have been injured by the reckless or negligent actions of another, contact the law offices of Anthem Injury Lawyers for a free initial consultation to learn how we can help you.
It’s important to speak with us before you speak with any insurance companies. If they try to contact you, let them know you have an auto accident attorney, and provide them your personal injury lawyer’s contact information. The other side’s insurance company will often try to get you to settle your case for a low-ball amount. Never sign, accept, or deposit anything from the other party or their insurance company without consulting your personal injury lawyer first.
