In Nevada, about 80% of motorcycle accidents cause an injury. These staggering statistics are due to the fact that when one is riding a motorcycle, their body is more exposed than when they are driving a car, for instance.

A cyclist cannot control the environment on the road, and anybody can become a victim of an accident in a matter of seconds.

It is possible to recover damages in the event of wrongful death. It is classified as a personal injury claim and the examples include death during negligent surgery and death as a result of someone texting while driving, among others.

Nursing Home Abuse
Sometimes, we cannot give our aging members of our family the care that they need. That is what nursing homes are for. They are supposed to provide safe and comfortable living conditions and cater to each resident’s needs. Unfortunately, many of them are usually short-staffed, nurses are overloaded and underpaid, and accidents can happen. They are classified as a personal injury under Nevada nursing home laws. The laws specify the abuse to be “intentional, knowing or negligent act by a nursing home caregiver that subjects an older person to harm or serious risk of harm”. Such cases often, unfortunately, go unreported, even though the victims deserve justice and compensation.

Sometimes, it is impossible to heal the scars, and you have to live with them for the rest of your life.

Most of us love dogs, for many good reasons. However, an adorable creature can turn feral easily and quickly, causing an injury that could be very painful and even require treatment. Which is exactly what you should do, even if you think the bite didn’t hurt much. Not only is it vital to prevent infection as soon as possible, but it is also important to document your injury by a medical professional, for legal reasons. Once you get medical attention, you need to notify a local animal control agency, documenting the accident’s details. It is a legal requirement in Nevada to do so, and doing so can prevent the pet from causing injury to others.
All of the above documentation would serve as a legal basis for a personal injury case that our Las Vegas attorneys would build. Most often, they would deal with insurance companies, but it can also be a lawsuit in severe cases. Usually, you would be entitled to recover the cost of medical care, lost wages (if applicable) and pain and suffering. Personal injury lawyers have a lot of experience with dog bites cases. Contact one of our lawyers for a preliminary free consultation.
