What Is a Wrongful Death Claim?
Nevada law defines a wrongful death as a death resulting from the intentional, reckless, or negligent conduct by people, companies, and government bodies that could have been prevented with due care. A wrongful death claim seeks to hold those responsible legally liable for the cause of a loved one’s death.
As an eligible claimant, you have two years from the date of death to file a Las Vegas wrongful death claim against the liable party.
At Guido Injury Law, our wrongful death attorney knows that nothing can replace the loss of a loved one. That is why Mr. Guido makes it a priority to help survivors file a timely claim so that you can recover damages for the financial loss and emotional suffering created by the loss of a family member.
Wrongful death financial compensation and damages may include:
- Unpaid medical bills
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Property damage
- Loss of companionship
- Loss of support from future earnings and benefits
- Loss of inheritance
- Pain and suffering
Depending on the severity of the accident, punitive damages may also be awarded. Punitive damages may be awarded should aggravating circumstances arise and are set as a means to punish and deter the liable party from future acts of negligence.
Who Can File a Las Vegas Wrongful Death Claim?
Nevada law can be complicated and does not allow just anyone to file a wrongful death claim.
Those who can file a wrongful death claim include personal representatives of the deceased’s estate. Depending upon the circumstances, a surviving spouse or legal domestic partner, surviving children, surviving parents, siblings and legal financial dependents may also file a wrongful death lawsuit.
