Accidental Death Act

Accidental Death Act

The loss of a loved one is tragic, devastating and painful. While nothing can compensate grieving families in such dark times, the law does entitled them to seek financial compensation from any party who’s negligence, recklessness or carelessness contributed or directly caused a wrongful death.

In Las Vegas, Nevada state law (NRS 41.085) dictates that decedents or personal representatives of an individual who sustained a wrongful death are legally entitled to compensation for:

  • Funeral costs and burial expenses
  • Loss of future companionship
  • Loss of future financial support the deceased provided
  • Any outstanding medical expenses regarding treatments the deceased received prior to his death
  • Pain and suffering
