Liability in Nevada Personal Injury Claims

For catastrophic injuries, holding the correct parties responsible is a complex process. The liability may be shared among more than one individual and / or with a business or corporation. To hold individuals accountable for an injury, negligence or a substandard of care must be proven. Complicating matters further, Nevada courts operate under a "modified comparative negligence rule" when determining liability. If you are found partially at fault for your injury, the amount of compensation you are entitled to receive may be reduced or completely eliminated. Defendants in a personal injury lawsuit will often employ this statute in an effort to lessen their financial responsibilities.
