Timelines for Filing a Wrongful Death Lawsuit
Nevada law limits the time in which you have to bring a wrongful death lawsuit. It is important to seek guidance from an experienced lawyer as soon as possible. We will help explain who can file a lawsuit and what damages you may be able to recover, and help you understand each step of the claim process.
Dealing With the Insurance Company
If you contact the insurance company yourself, you will deal with an adjuster who has the best interest of his or her employer in mind. That is why you need a lawyer to make certain that your rights are enforced. It is an adjuster's job to try to get you to settle your claim quickly and cheaply.
Our lawyers understand how insurance companies respond to, defend and deny claims. We are here to answer any questions during your case and obtain the maximum amount of benefits and financial compensation for your claim.
