Personal Injury Laws
Personal injury laws were developed to protect individuals from negligence and the resulting physical, emotional and financial losses that accompany these accidents. Whether it is an auto accident, medical malpractice, defective products or even work-related injuries or claims, our attorney group wants to protect you from devastating losses.
Personal injury law in Nevada stipulates that those who sustain a personal injury due to any type of negligence, carelessness or recklessness will be entitled to compensation for their injuries and losses. Recoverable compensation may include medical bills, property damage, lost wages and pain and suffering.
Personal Injury Statistics
The statistics speak for themselves, and leave individuals and families devastated each day. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT), the following occurs on US roadways each year:
- Over 6 million car accidents, with over 2 million Americans permanently injured, and approximately 40,000 are killed
- Approximately 3,000 train accidents occur each year, causing around 1,000 fatalities
According to the U.S. Department of Labor (USDOL), the statistics are equally as grim:
- More than 80 fatalities occur each year due to crane accidents on construction sites, mostly due to wind or operator error
Even if you do not work in construction, the U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics reports that nearly 400,000 Americans sustained a traumatic brain injury (TBI) last year due to a slip and fall accident.
In addition to the slip and fall statistics of TBIs:
- More than 300,000 TBIs occur due to car accidents
- More than 150,000 irreversible brain injuries result from assault or other acts of violence
Personal injury also cannot be escaped by pursuing medical care, which is evident in the fact that medication errors are the most common form of medical malpractice, affecting 1.5 million Americans each year. The additional medical costs associated with medical malpractice are estimated to be approximately $887 million.
