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. The people who commit these wrongful 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.
Every day, people cause injuries through negligence—often because they’re not paying attention to their responsibilities to drive responsibly or conduct their businesses safely. If this happens to you, you can seek compensation for injuries sustained in:
Motorcycle accidents can be caused by blind spots, reckless driving, and lack of protective gear.
These include car accidents caused by road rage, driver fatigue, drunk drivers, reckless driving, distracted driving, tire malfunction, and speeding.
Includes all types of injuries that can happen in a workplace accident including slip and fall, concussion, crushed limbs, and more.
Including slips and falls in casinos and theme parks, premises liabilities includes injuries by animals, fires, defective conditions, and many more.
Bus and Truck accidents are caused by many of the same issues as car accidents, plus unqualified drivers and blind spots.
Collisions between pedestrians, bicycles, and vehicles happen often and can lead to severe injury or even death.
Injuries can occur from products that are defective through manufacturing, recalled parts, or incorrect labeling and use.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
If you’ve been injured due to someone’s negligence, you may be granted punitive damages by the jury as a way of punishing the careless or reckless party.
Injured clients often miss many hours of work due to recovery time. You are entitled to be compensated for your lost wages.
Pain and general soreness last up to 6 weeks after an accident, which can lead to compensation for your pain and suffering.
Individuals who lost a loved one to wrongful death are entitled to compensation for loss of services, support, medical expenses, funeral expenses, and inheritance loss.
Some drunk driving injuries are life-altering with chronic suffering. You can receive compensation for decreased quality of life and extended rehab expenses.
You can be compensated for all current and future medical expenses relating to your injury including rehabilitation, follow up surgery, and therapy.
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.
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.
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.
