Loss of life is always a tragedy. When that tragedy is caused by the negligence or recklessness of another, that is defined as wrongful death. Although nothing will ever replace your loved one, the right legal representation can help compensate for other losses that occur when a loved one passes away, such as expenses incurred by the deceased prior to death, loss of survivors’ financial stability, pain and suffering, medical expenses, and end-of-life expenses like estate and funeral.
The most common type of wrongful death involves medical malpractice, but it can also include vehicular accidents, air travel, premises liability, and product liability. The common thread is that the responsible party did not uphold the legal requirement to act in a safe and responsible manner, which, although death was unintended, they are responsible for causing. In Nevada, the statute of limitations in a wrongful death case is two years, so it is important to have a skilled attorney file your lawsuit in a timely fashion. We will be both compassionate and aggressive to ensure you get the maximum settlement for your claim.
