Compassionate Assistance and Representation
The loss of a family member or loved one is undoubtedly one of the most emotionally painful and tragic events a person can experience.

Our ultimate goal is to obtain justice and fair compensation on your behalf, and we use every ounce of our collective experience and compassion to deliver the results you deserve.
Nevada Wrongful Death Law
Nevada permits certain eligible family members to pursue wrongful death claims against the person or party responsible for their loved one's death. According to the Nevada Revised Statues §41.085, the heirs or personal representatives of a decedent may file claims for a death caused by a wrongful act or negligence. Heirs can include a person who would be entitled to succeed the property of a decedent, which are typically spouses, children and other immediate family members.
A wrongful death can allow a decedent's relatives to obtain compensation for the damages they suffered. When a court rules in favor of victims, they can award eligible family members compensation for their grief and sorrow, loss of probable support and companionship and for the pain and suffering of the decedent. Additionally, courts will award monetary compensation for any financial expenses that were incurred, including any medical bills and funeral expenses. In some cases, especially in those that involve extreme acts of negligence or unlawful acts, courts may award punitive damages to further punish a wrongdoer.
