Getting Compensated for Your Soft Tissue Injuries in Las Vegas
Ligament and tendon damage are the repercussions of an injury from a serious automobile accident, from slipping and falling inside of a hotel in Las Vegas, or by crossing the road on the strip. If you or someone you loved sustained a ligament or tendon injury in an accident that could’ve been prevented, you should book a complimentary consultation with a personal injury lawyer in Nevada who is an expert in soft tissue injuries. Zachary D. Clayton, Esq., is such a lawyer.
Injuries to tendons, muscles, and ligaments are considered to be “soft tissue injuries.” Soft tissue injuries happen because at least one sensitive tissue inside of your body is damaged. If they come about because of an accident that could have been prevented, it can result in a personal injury claim.
More often than not, ligament or tendon injuries are treatable with contemporary medical treatments, like physical therapy. Having said that, the costs that come with such treatments may be daunting, even with health insurance.
Consequentially, accident victims may face monetary burdens that are associated with loss of income and physical treatment (especially if they cannot perform at work because of an injury).
The impact of tendon and ligament damage can differ for everyone, but almost every victim will inevitably ensure substantial hardship and pain:
- Torn knee ligament
- Tear of the medial meniscus
- Torn lateral meniscus
- Torn rotator cuff
- Tear of posterior cruciate ligament
- Torn anterior cruciate ligament
- Tear of the shoulder
Monetary compensation for ligament or tendon damage stemming from a slip and fall inside of a business in Las Vegas (or from a serious automobile accident).
It is quite common for someone to suffer a tendon or ligament injury in a serious auto accident or from a slip and fall at a Las Vegas business.
If the injuries were sustained because of the reckless actions of another individual, it may be possible for you to receive monetary restitution for your losses and harms, which include:
- All permanent disabilities.
- Suffering and pain that came about because of the injury.
- Missing income because the injury stopped you from performing at work.
- Regular physical therapy.
- Medical expenses associated with treating the ligament or tendon injury.
Hiring a Las Vegas Personal Injury Lawyer Zachary D. Clayton Pays Dividends in the Long Run
Many people are hesitant to contact a lawyer after an accident. They may mistakenly believe that it costs a truckload of money just to speak to an attorney or that hiring an attorney means they will have to go to court and testify in order to receive any financial restitution.
It is understandable to be nervous and have questions about the injury claims process. The best decision is to take action and contact a lawyer to schedule a complimentary, confidential case review.
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.
During a case review, you will discover that hiring a Las Vegas accident lawyer will likely pay dividends in achieving a favorable outcome in your injury case. This is because having a lawyer on your side will help level the proverbial playing field with the insurance company (they usually employ an entire team of defense attorneys who work to reduce or deny injury claims).
Hiring a qualified legal counsel also ensures your accident will be thoroughly investigated, witnesses will be interviewed, and a claim will be timely filed to pursue financial restitution for your harms and losses.
Watch Out for the Statute of Limitations Limited Time to Take Legal Action
Pursuant to Nevada Revised Statute 11.190(4)(e), there is a specific, limited period of time in which you are able to pursue a civil action against someone for their negligent actions, or inactions that caused your harms and losses. This is known as the “statute of limitations.”
In most personal injury cases, including tendon or ligament injury cases, the statute of limitations is limited to two years, and this two-year clock begins to run the day of the accident. Though, there are some notable exceptions to this general rule. To determine whether you are still able to file a lawsuit within the statutory period, speak to an attorney well versed in personal injury law.
