Drunk driving is extremely dangerous. A driver who is over the legal limit is at a far higher risk of being involved in a major accident. Drunk drivers are more susceptible to distractions, have reduced reaction times, and have impaired cognitive functioning and decision making. According to data published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 100 people are killed in DUI accidents in Nevada every year. Many other motorists and passengers suffer severe, sometimes even permanent injuries in these crashes.
Under Nevada law (Nev. Rev. Stat. § 11.190(4)(e)), drunk driving accident claims are generally subject to a two-year statute of limitations. With very few exceptions, injured victims must file a lawsuit within two years of the drunk driving wreck. If you fail to do so, any legal claim will be dismissed.
Do not wait to take action to protect your rights. The longer you wait to initiate the legal claims process, the more challenging it will be to establish full liability and recover the maximum available financial support. Call our experienced Las Vegas, NV DUI accident attorneys as soon as possible after a crash.
In most cases, a drunk driver will face criminal charges after an accident. Indeed, if an innocent person was seriously injured or killed in a crash, intoxicated drivers are likely to be charged with a felony offense. Criminal liability matters. It is an important part of getting justice. That being said, injured victims will not be able to recover financial relief through the state’s criminal proceeding. Instead, accident victims should be prepared to bring a civil personal injury claim. Among other things, relevant evidence in a DUI accident case can include:

While money can never fully compensate you for physical injuries or the loss of a loved one, it is the means for obtaining justice in civil cases. Under Nevada law, the victim of a drunk driver can get compensation for
the complete value of their monetary and non-monetary losses.

At Ladah Law, our Las Vegas DUI accident lawyers will help you maximize your settlement offer or verdict. You may be eligible to recover financial damages for:
In some cases, the victim or family can get damages to cover extensive punitive damages as well.While they are still paid to the injured victim, punitive damages are not granted to account for the victim’s actual losses. Unlike compensatory damages, they are meant to punish wrongdoing by the defendant and to dissuade others from engaging in similar misconduct. Under Nevada law (Nev. Rev. Stat. § 42.005), punitive damages—also known as exemplary damages—may be awarded in cases of gross negligence. Drunk driving is an example of grossly negligent conduct that could potentially merit punitive compensation.
