A car accident is a life changing event. Your first priority is the health and safety of those involved in the accident. Many times after an accident, hospital stays and surgeries are required. When a loved one is injured, your focus is their well-being, not obtaining compensation. This is fully understandable and even expected, but the law limits your time for seeking compensation.

According to Nevada law, the time is limited for filing a lawsuit in civil court. This time limit, or statute of limitations, is generally two years and the clock starts ticking on the day of the accident. While you are focused on your loved one’s recovery after an accident, time is already slipping away. Watching legal deadlines is vital to obtaining fair and adequate compensation. If the statue of limitations passes, so do your chances of potentially collecting compensation for injuries.
