Top-Rated Henderson Personal Injury Attorneys

Benson & Bingham Accident Injury Lawyers, LLC

If someone else’s actions have left you seriously injured, then in addition to physical pain, there’s a good chance you also feel significant financial pain. The cost of medical treatments, missing work, and adapting to a serious injury can disrupt your entire life. In the world of law, wrongful actions that cause injury to someone are called torts. Personal injury law governs these situations, ensuring that those responsible for causing harm through negligence or intentional actions can—and should—face legal liability for the damage those actions inflict.

A Henderson personal injury lawyer can help you evaluate whether someone owes you money for injuries their actions caused. The sooner you contact an attorney, the better. Under Nevada law, in most cases you have just two years from the date of your injury to take legal action.

A serious injury caused by someone else can leave you experiencing physical pain, emotional trauma, and enormous, unplanned financial burdens. Recovering the compensation you deserve for these harms requires the services of an experienced Henderson, Nevada personal injury attorney.

Types of Personal Injuries

A person’s or company’s careless or reckless actions can cause a wide variety of harm to others. Below are just a few of the types of injuries clients of Benson & Bingham have suffered through no fault of their own, and for which they deserve compensation:


Accidental burns happen because of exposure to fire, chemicals, electricity, or radiation. They commonly occur on job sites, in car accidents, and at home. Severe burns can cause agonizing pain, life-threatening health complications, and extensive scarring.

Lacerations And Abrasions

Cuts and scrapes are one thing. But their more-severe forms, lacerations and abrasions, can result in blood loss, infection, and the need for extensive medical intervention (including surgery). These traumas commonly happen in motor vehicle, cycling, and pedestrian accidents, as well as when dogs bite children.

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

TBIs are often caused by a jolt or blow to the head, but can also occur after the brain is deprived of oxygen for a sustained period. These injuries can affect a person’s emotional, cognitive, and motor abilities, and may require long-term treatment and therapy.

Bone Fractures

Broken bones happen in a wide variety of scenarios, including accidental falls and motor vehicle accidents. They are particularly debilitating for older Nevadans and can lead to significant secondary health complications requiring hospitalization and surgery.

Loss Of Limbs

A particularly violent accident can crush or sever a person’s limb. Losing an arm or leg does not only inflict a lifetime of disability, it also causes severe emotional distress. Victims of these injuries must adapt to a whole new (and often expensive) way of life.

Spinal Cord Injury

Damage to the spinal cord can leave accident victims temporarily or permanently paralyzed. Living with these injuries means incurring the huge costs associated with medical care, rehabilitative therapy, and specialized equipment (wheelchairs or home modifications to make their homes accessible). Emotional trauma is also common among those who suffer a paralyzing injury.

Cancers And Terminal diseases

Long-term exposure to toxins in an unsafe work or living environment can lead to life-threatening health conditions, including cancer, a depressed immune system, and chronic respiratory illness. Toxin exposure can also cause birth defects and developmental delays in children.

Nevada’s Personal Injury Laws

Nevada Is a Fault State

Nevada Is a Fault State

For car accidents and personal injury claims, Nevada is considered a “fault state”, which means that the insurance company of any party found to be guilty of causing injury is legally required to pay for the damages they have caused. If the defendant has no insurance, they are held personally liable.

Comparative Negligence Law

In Nevada, a victim is legally able to recover some compensation even if they are partially at fault for the incident. It must be determined that they are less than 50% at fault and therefore comparatively less negligent. If they are over 50% guilty, they cannot be compensated.

Comparative Negligence Law
Statute of Limitations for Motor Vehicle Accidents In Henderson

Statute Of Limitations For Personal Injury Claims In Henderson

The statute of limitations in Nevada for personal injury claims is two years from the date the injury was received. For medical malpractice, the claim must be made within three years from the date the injury occurred, or one year from when the injury was discovered.

Personal Injury Questions You May Have

We are extensively knowledgeable about Nevada law and how it applies in unique cases to ensure maximum compensation for the victim.

Schedule a free, no-obligation consultation today with our legal team to discuss your right to compensation.

What are Compensations For Non-Economic Damages And How Can I Obtain Them?

Non-economic damages (also known as general damages) reflect the generalized harm of an injury, such as your own pain and suffering, your loss of enjoyment of life, and damage to your personal relationships. In the event a person dies because of someone else’s wrongful actions, that person’s family may recover types of damages in a legal action known as a wrongful death claim.

But how are these damages calculated? It’s complicated and requires assigning a dollar amount to damages that are by their definition not easy to calculate. Often, calculating non-economic damages requires the services of a financial expert (or actuary) who specializes in calculating the value of hard-to-measure damages like physical and emotional pain, lost future earnings and opportunities, and the total cost of making a full recovery. An experienced personal injury lawyer routinely works with these sorts of experts.

How Do You Prove Liability In A Personal Injury Case?

In any personal injury claim, it is vital to prove that the defending party was liable. Your attorney will work diligently to gather information and build a strong case as they fight for optimal compensation for your pain and suffering. You must have physical evidence to prove that the party in question owed you a duty of care, that they breached their duty of care, that their breach of duty of care caused your injury, and the damages that occurred as a result. Once fault is established, the guilty party will be held liable to pay compensation.

How Long Will My Personal Injury Claim Take?

The amount of time for your specific injury claim case to be fully settled varies greatly. It typically takes anywhere from a few months to two years to settle a case, with many factors playing a part. The client’s financial situation can determine how long a case takes, along with the extent of the injuries, the severity of the accident, how many parties were involved, and how easy it is for your lawyer to negotiate between insurance companies. Your attorney will keep in close communication with you throughout the entire legal process.

How Much Will A Henderson Personal Injury Lawyer Cost?

At Benson & Bingham Accident Injury Lawyers, LLC, our legal team is dedicated to helping our clients get the maximum amount of compensation they deserve for the injuries and pain they are facing. We do not take advantage of you, and do not charge a dime until we recover what is owed to you. You can typically expect a personal injury lawyer to receive ⅓ of any settlement or award. If you have any concerns about cost or compensation, don’t hesitate to ask!

How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit In Henderson?

The statute of limitations in the state of Nevada for personal injury claims is two years from the date of the injury. In medical malpractice claims, you have three years from the date of the negligent act that caused injury occurred, or one year from the date the injury was discovered. If you feel that you have a viable personal injury claim and want to learn more about the process, it is in your best interest to contact a lawyer as soon as possible to ensure you remain within the statute of limitations.

Do I Need To Hire A Lawyer To File A Personal Injury Lawsuit In Henderson?

No, you are not required to have an attorney help you through the process of filing a claim. You are legally permitted to file a claim independently. However, nobody should have to face a legal battle alone, especially where pain and suffering are involved. You deserve to rest and focus on your recovery from injury, while a competent attorney gathers paperwork, information, evidence, testimonies, police reports, and more. Your lawyer will negotiate with difficult insurance companies and ensure your rights are fully represented. Attempting to file a claim on your own will likely result in little to no compensation.

What Kind Of Economic Damages Can I Recover After An Accident In Henderson?

There are two general categories of damages you may have the right to recover if someone’s wrongful actions have injured you. The first is known as economic damages (sometimes also called special damages). These damages reflect your out-of-pocket costs of an injury, such as:

  • Initial Medical Costs: Costs you incur during your on-scene medical treatment, transfer to an emergency treatment facility, and initial hospital stay.
  • Ongoing Medical Costs: Prescriptions, follow up appointments, specialists, ongoing testing.
  • Rehabilitative Costs: Physical or occupational therapy, specialized equipment or machinery, costs from an inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation facility, mental health treatment.
  • Costs Of Modifications To Your Home Or Vehicle: Installation of ramps, specialized driving equipment, or other modifications made to allow you to access your home or car.
  • Lost Wages: Wages you didn’t earn because of your hospital stay or having to miss work for appointments.
