Slip and Fall
Not only can a serious accident change your life forever, but it can also forever change the lives of your loved ones. The emotional and physical trauma you experience may not dissipate anytime soon, and your loved ones are traumatized to a similar degree, albeit in a different way. And that does not even take into account the financial stress that may have just involuntarily become your reality for the foreseeable future.
With all of that in mind, it is easy to understand why personal injury accident victims may feel helpless, scared, and confused. Our attorneys at Valiente Mott pride ourselves on pursuing justice on behalf of those whose lives have been thrown into upheaval through no fault of their own. If you have been injured in an accident caused by another person or entity, we invite you to schedule a free consultation with a Las Vegas personal injury attorney by calling us today.
Types of Damages You May Receive for Your Claim
While the legal system cannot do anything to undo your accident, it does provide recourse for you to pursue financial compensation for the damages you have suffered. Here are some of the types of compensation commonly sought by personal injury accident victims:
- All medical costs, which may include an emergency room visit after a truck crash or a surgery following a slip and fall accident, as well as post-surgery rehabilitation.
- Lost wages, which can compensate you for the salary, benefits, vacation time, and retirement contributions that you may have lost due to being unable to work following the vicious animal attack you suffered.
- Loss of earning capacity. If you were a victim of medical malpractice following a botched surgery at University Medical Center, it is possible that you will be able to return to the workforce, but in a diminished capacity due to the physical, mental, or emotional injuries you have sustained. This category of damages would fill in the gap between what you would have made had you never gotten injured and what you make now in your diminished state.
- Physical and emotional pain and suffering. The physical and emotional fallout from a construction accident can be devastating, as you may experience intense physical pain for years to come and also be terrified of going out in public.
- Loss of enjoyment of life. Prior to your workplace accident, you may have had a vibrant social life, you may have been highly active in a number of sports and activities, and you may have enjoyed traveling frequently. However, with a debilitating back injury where you struggle to walk, sit, or stand for any length of time, it may be nearly impossible to do any of the things you used to enjoy.
- Loss of companionship. If the serious spinal cord injury you sustained in a car crash has rendered you incapable of holding anything over 10 pounds, running, jumping, bending over, or sitting on the floor, your ability to bond with your toddler will be significantly diminished. Your marriage may also suffer due to your inability to be as active and social as you used to be and the depression resulting from that.
What Is Modified Comparative Negligence?
Some accident victims that contact our Las Vegas personal injury lawyers express concern about not being eligible to recover any damages because they may have been partially responsible for the accident. However, Nevada is a modified comparative negligence state, meaning that you can still recover financial compensation as long as you were not more than 50 percent at-fault for the accident. The total damages that you incur will be reduced in proportion to your share of the fault. For example, if you sustained $1 Million worth of damages in a serious bus accident and were determined to have been 45 percent responsible for it, you could still recover $550,000.

They were very professional and at the same time concerned about my family and I. I received my settlement in a timely matter. Thank you all for your help. They work as a great team to help you ASAP. I recommend them to anyone who needs a lawyer.
I highly recommend Valiente Mott! I had the privilege of working with Mike Valiente and Tim Mott before they founded their firm and I can attest to the quality of their work. They are very intelligent, incredibly hard-working, and very compassionate–such a rare and valuable combination. I hope never to need their services, but if I ever do, I would trust them with my case.

Nate Quist was great to work with. He always made sure that I was good first before doing any type of business. He always looked out for my best interest and what made me comfortable. I felt Nate looked at me like a person and not just another case. Definitely recommend.
