Fees in Personal Injury Cases

All personal injury work at Heshmati & Associates is charged on a contingency basis which means - if the personal injury lawyer cannot settle your case or win at trial, you pay nothing.

Personal Injury and Statute of Limitations

The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Nevada is generally limited to two (2) years. If you are planning to file a claim against your own insurance and use Uninsured Motorist(UM) coverage, the statute of limitations is six (6) years for the UM claim and still two (2) years for the underlying adverse driver claim.

Modified Comparative Negligence

Nevada uses the rule of modified comparative negligence which means that the plaintiff can collect compensation from all other at-fault parties as long as the plaintiff was less than 51% percent responsible for the accident.

New Tax Reform and Personal Injury Settlements

Many people ask us, if the Tax Reform 2017 in any way affects their personal injury settlements. The answer is - it doesn't. The pain and suffering part of your personal injury settlement is non-taxable.

When Multiple Parties Involved

Nevada law allows you to file a lawsuit against some or all of the defendants responsible for the accident. In addition, if multiple victims were involved, under Nevada law all victims who filed a claim must be compensated for damages.
