What Type Of Damages Are Awarded in a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?
In a wrongful death lawsuit, damages can come in both monetary and non-monetary forms. The aim of a wrongful death suit is to compensate surviving family members for out-of-pocket expenses and to bring justice to the wrongdoer.
Compensation from a wrongful death claim may help you pay for the following:
- Costs related to the funeral and burial
- Medical bills incurred by the deceased prior to their passing
- The deceased's lost wages or income
- Losses stemming from loss of the deceased's companionship, love, support, guidance, sorry, society, comfort and consortium, and damages for the pain suffering or disfigurement of the deceased
We understand that no amount of financial compensation can ever fully compensate for the loss of a loved one. Nonetheless, a successful claim can help provide the financial resources and sense of justice necessary for healing.
Who May File A Wrongful Death Claim?
In Nevada, a wrongful death claim can be filed when a person dies due to the wrongful or negligent conduct of another person or entity. Surviving family members of the deceased may file a wrongful death claim if the deceased could have filed a personal injury claim if they had survived. Such claims usually arise from accidents such as car crashes, truck accidents, slips and falls, medical malpractice, dog bites, and other traumatic events.
According to Nevada law, the following people may bring a wrongful death claim:
- The personal representative of the deceased's estate
- Surviving spouse, domestic partner, or child/children of the deceased
- Surviving parent(s) of the deceased if there is no surviving spouse, domestic partner, or children
- Siblings if the decedent leaves no children, surviving spouse, or parent
How Long Do I Have To File a Wrongful Death Claim?
In Nevada, there is a specific time limit within which a wrongful death claim must be filed, known as the statute of limitations. The statute of limitations for wrongful death claims in Nevada is generally two years from the date of the deceased person's death. It is crucial to file the claim within this time frame, as any delay or failure to do so may result in the case being dismissed by the court, thereby depriving the surviving family members of the opportunity to seek wrongful death damages. Therefore, it is highly recommended that you seek the assistance of a skilled attorney to help you file your wrongful death claim within the specified time frame.
