Personal Injury Litigation Process
After a licensed attorney has determined that a legitimate case exists, the personal injury lawsuit begins when a complaint is filed in civil court. After the complaint is filed and served to a defendant, the defendant usually obtains counsel and files an answer to the complaint.
Next, the discovery phase begins. In legal terms, discovery is defined as the pre-trial procedure in which each party in a lawsuit obtains evidence from the other party or parties by utilizing discovery devices such as written discovery, document productions, and depositions. The discovery process is lengthy and can take months or even a year to complete.
After discovery is completed, the court will then hear pre-trial motions. Pre-trial motions are filed in order to allow a judge to make decisions in a case. For example, a plaintiff’s attorney may file a motion for summary judgment, identifying each claim or defense — or the part of each claim or defense — on which summary judgment is sought. The court shall grant summary judgment if the plaintiff’s attorney shows that there is no genuine dispute as to any material fact and the plaintiff is entitled to judgment. Another common pre-trial motion is what’s known as a motion in limine. A motion in limine asks the judge to exclude certain evidence from being used at trial, citing that the inclusion of said evidence will do more harm than good.
After the pre-trial hearings on motions have been conducted and the judge has issued their decisions, attorneys may begin discussing settlement, arbitration, or mediation. Many personal injury lawsuits can be resolved before going to trial by reaching a settlement or by using an impartial mediator or arbitrator to help both parties come to an agreement. If both parties cannot resolve the matter through settlement, arbitration, or mediation, a trial is set.
The trial may last days or weeks and gives the plaintiff the opportunity to argue their case with the hope of obtaining compensation from the defendant. After both the plaintiff’s counsel and the defendant’s counsel have presented their arguments, the jury will deliberate and decide if the defendant was liable and what damages are owed to the plaintiff.
Nevada’s Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Lawsuits
It is important to note that each state has its own statute of limitations for claims, meaning that there is a time frame in which a person is permitted to bring a civil action on another for their injury. In the state of Nevada, the statute of limitations for personal injury matters is two years from the date of the incident. If you have been injured in an accident due to someone else’s negligence, it is important that you consult with experienced personal injury lawyers as soon as possible to avoid missing important deadlines or the inability to file suit due to time constraints.
