Personal Injury Damages Awards In Las Vegas

You Could Get Many Forms Of Damages For Your Las Vegas Accident

If you were injured in an accident in Las Vegas, you may be entitled to a damages award as compensation for the injuries you received. A Las Vegas Lawyer will first attempt to obtain damages for injuries in Las Vegas, by sending a settlement demand to the person or company whose misconduct caused your injuries. Many Las Vegas accident claims can be settled without going to trial. A Las Vegas Attorney will usually try to negotiate a settlement before filing a lawsuit. However, if the other side does not negotiate towards a settlement in good faith, a Las Vegas Accident Lawyer will probably file a lawsuit to obtain monetary damages for the injuries you received in an accident in Las Vegas.

A jury awards damages after hearing all the evidence and deciding if the plaintiff (the person who filed the lawsuit) proved that the misconduct of the defendant caused the injuries. There are several types of damages which you may have a legal right to receive to pay you back for all the hardship you went through because of your injury. It is important that you get all the information about which damages you should receive before your Las Vegas personal injury claim is settled. A Vegas Lawyer can give you damages information which should enable you to make an informed decision about your Las Vegas accident claim for damages.

Contact A Las Vegas Lawyer To Discuss General Damages

General damages compensate you for much of the emotional losses you and your family have suffered due to a personal injury suffered in an accident in Las Vegas. General damages are also called "non-economic damages" and they include:
  • Physical Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress and mental suffering (grief, fright, humiliation)
  • Inconvenience
  • Loss of care, comfort, and society
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of consortium
A general damages award is meant to compensate you for these intangible losses. As you can see, it may be hard to put a value on these losses which can emotionally devastate you or your family. Often, it is this category of non-economic losses which can give you the highest jury award particularly when the misconduct of the defendant was extreme. Contact a Las Vegas Accident Lawyer to discuss each of the awards you may be eligible to receive for the injuries you have endured.

Contact A Las Vegas Lawyer To Discuss Special Damages

Special Damages is a category where the damages can often be precisely calculated. Special damages are also known as economic damages and the category includes:
  • Loss of future income
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Past medical bills
  • Future medical bills
  • Wrongful death
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Loss of business opportunity/ loss of employment
  • Property losses
  • Property repair and replacement
Contact A Las Vegas Lawyer To Discuss Punitive Damages

Punitive damages are not awarded frequently because the purpose is to punish a defendant whose behavior was extreme in order to deter others from the same misconduct. In Nevada, the defendant must be guilty of oppression, fraud or malice to warrant an award of punitive damages. This is known as the “malice in fact” standard and it can be met by showing that the wrongful conduct was willful, intentional and done in reckless disregard of its possible results. If you or a family member suffered injuries because of such wrongful conduct, then your case may warrant a punitive damages award to punish the wrongdoer and to deter others from acting the same way.
