Accidents in Las Vegas
Las Vegas, Nevada is home to many colorful characters and attracts more than 42 million tourists each year. With all these people, it’s no surprise that Las Vegas also hosts some alarming accident rates for almost every type of accident.
In 2017, 305 people died in car accidents throughout Nevada. While the number is down from 2016’s 329 auto accident related fatalities, the decrease is made up in pedestrian accidents. Almost the same amount of lives that were spared in car accidents were reflected in an upswing in fatal pedestrian-involved accidents. The number of pedestrian deaths climbed from 80 in 2016 to 100 in 2017. City officials attribute this increase to the sheer number of people on foot exploring the city, and the number continues to grow.
Accidents involving tractor-trailers frequently involve catastrophic damage and fatalities. Almost 4,000 people died in accidents involving semi-trucks, 18 wheelers, and tractor-trailers in 2015. Of these 4,000 deaths, only about 600 were the tractor-trailer drivers. The rest were other motorists, their passengers, or pedestrians. Truckers represent the third largest group of motorists of Nevada’s roads after commuters and tourists and can have some of the most catastrophic and lasting impacts when it comes to automobile accidents.
The loss of a loved one is never easy, especially when it happens due to the negligent or reckless behavior of another. According to Nevada state law, a wrongful death occurs “when the intentional, reckless, or negligent conduct of one party causes the death of another person.” The most common claims of wrongful death in Nevada are related to car accidents, pedestrian accidents, and medical malpractice.
If you are considering a wrongful death suit, time is of the essence. Nevada has a two-year statute of limitations on these kinds of cases, even when criminal charges are involved. There are a variety of damages that can be recovered in a wrongful death suit, including loss of support, loss of companionship, monetary compensation for grief, and pain and suffering.
Thousands of wrongful death suits are filed in Nevada every year, and the suit can help your family during this difficult time.
What To Do If You’re Injured in a Las Vegas Casino
Las Vegas Casinos can be sources of fun and entertainment, but they can also be dangerous, and accidents happen all the time. Tourists or locals who have been injured inside of a Las Vegas casino may be entitled to receive compensation if they can prove negligence on the part of the casino. The most common personal injury claims against casinos are slip and fall accidents and food poisoning, but thefts occur far too often. Many tourists carry large amounts of cash on them, making them prime targets for robberies. Casino owners are required to take reasonable measures to ensure the safety of the people who patronize their establishment.
The casino, the employees, the casino’s management, the hotel in which the casino is located, or the casino’s insurance provider can be potentially liable if you are harmed inside of a Las Vegas casino. If you have been hurt during your stay in Las Vegas, the personal injury attorneys at the Law Office of Kevin R. Hansen can help.
Why You Need a Personal Injury Attorney
After an accident, no insurance company is truly on your side. The claims adjuster in charge of your insurance case wants to minimize any payout that his employer is required to make. Any insurance company, including your own, is first and foremost a business. Like any other business, it wants to maximize its profits, even if this comes at the expense of you and your family. Answering even the simplest of an adjuster’s questions could potentially place your valid claim in severe jeopardy.
If you have been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence, it is vital that you speak to a qualified personal injury attorney as soon as possible. The insurance company and the person who caused your injuries will do all they can to deny your claim. At the Law Office of Kevin R. Hansen, we know how to handle insurance companies. Leave dealing with this headache to your experienced personal injury attorney, and we’ll make sure that your rights are protected from the start of your claim to the finish.
Statue of Limitations in Nevada
The statute of limitations states how long you have to take legal action before the case is legally thrown out of court. This time limit varies from claim to claim and from state to state. In Nevada, the statute of limitations for some of the more common claims is:
- Medical malpractice – 3 years
- Personal injury – 2 years
- Wrongful death – 2 years
Once the statute of limitations has passed on your claim, it is entirely valid for a judge to throw the case out. To make sure that this does not happen to you, you need to contact the Law Office of Kevin R. Hansen as soon as possible after you have been injured. Don’t delay. The success of your case rests on how quickly you work to defend your rights.
