Disfigurement Injuries Caused by Someone’s Negligence: Pathway to Financial Recovery
Experiencing bodily injuries from an accident that could’ve been prevented might leave you with damages financially, psychologically, and physically. This is particularly true if you sustained injuries that gave you disfigurement, such as trauma to your eye sockets that blinded you in the process; losing a limb; or getting permanently scarred because of severe burns. A disfiguring injury means you’ll have to be reminded of the accident every time you look in a mirror.
If you or someone you love sustained an injury that disfigured you, and it happened because of an accident that could have been prevented, you are encouraged to schedule a meeting with Zachary D. Clayton, an aggressive and experienced personal injury attorney in Las Vegas.
It might be possible to obtain monetary compensation for your losses and harms, particularly if your disfigurement is extreme and isn’t expected to be fully restored.
Monetary Compensation for Injury Disfigurement from an Automobile Accident Attorney in Las Vegas
Disfiguring injuries sustained in car accidents are quite common. If the injury led to a disfigurement of some sort and was brought on by someone else’s careless actions, it might be possible to obtain financial restitution for your losses and harms, which includes:
- All long-term disabilities.
- Suffering and pain that came about because of the injury.
- Lost wages because the injury stopped you from performing at work.
- Regular physical therapy.
- Medical expenses associated with treating the disfigurement injury.
Winning a Case Involving Disfigurement Injuries in Las Vegas
The specific circumstances associated with every accident and the injuries that come with them are different. That’s why your case’s legal strategy will be unique. With that said, there are some basic requirements that are associated with the success of your disfigurement case.
If injuries to your heart, liver, kidney, spleen, etc. happened during a car accident, you must prove that the motorist at fault failed to provide the duty of care you are owed, that it was breached, that the breach resulted in injuries your body, and that you can display evidence to substantiate your claims.
No Limit to How Much You Can Recover for Pain and Suffering
With the exception of medical malpractice cases, there is no statutory limit on the amount a plaintiff may recover for “non-economic” (also known as “pain and suffering”) damages in a Nevada personal injury lawsuit.
The only expectation is that the damages to be awarded for your disfigurement, suffering, pain, and the like, are fair and reasonable.
The monetary compensation amount issued to an accident victim generally increases when they experience at least one of these factors:
What Our Clients Say
I suffered a devastating auto accident in Las Vegas due to someone else's fault. I was fortunate enough to call LV Personal Injury Lawyers who helped me in the most effective and client-friendly way possible.
- Motor function loss or permanent disfigurement.
- Medical costs are substantially high and will be ongoing.
- Recovery is expected to take a while, and the plaintiff isn’t expected to completely recover.
Juries would be partial to issue a greater amount of damages for suffering and pain if:
- Person A was severely hurt in an automobile accident after being hit by a truck (with a drunk driver behind the wheel) on the beltway in Las Vegas.
- Personal A suffered a huge scar on the right side of their face.
- Since the injury is verifiable externally and there is permanent damage, Person A needs to prove that the truck driver was responsible for the accident happening, and that they can back up their claims. This is necessary if Person A wants to receive damages for suffering, pain, and losses of a non-economical nature.
Speak to Zachary D. Clayton, Esq. Sooner Rather than Later
It is extremely important to take action and contact a Las Vegas disfigurement injury lawyer sooner rather than later. Why? Because of Nevada Revised Statute 11.190(4)(e), which sets forth the statute of limitations for personal injury cases in Nevada. The statute of limitations is a specific time period in which plaintiffs can file a civil action against a defendant in order to pursue financial restitution for their harms and losses.
In Nevada, you typically have two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit in a Nevada court.
