Nevada Personal Injury Lawyers Representing Accident Victims in Zephyr Cove
The lake community of Zephyr Cove is a small, census-designated place in Douglas County, Nevada.
Like Round Hill Village, Zephyr Cove is situated along the eastern shore of Lake Tahoe. Zephyr Cove was known as Zephyr Cove-Round Hill Village census-designated place, prior to the communities’ split in 2010. The smaller of the two towns, Zephyr Cove measures approximately 2.2 square miles in size, and is home to roughly 560 people.
Although the town is nestled away from the urban sprawl, it is easily accessible by State Route 50, a major roadway that runs through Zephyr Cove. As a result, the small town is connected with Reno and Carson City, in addition to the California state line to the West.
Unfortunately, no community in the country is a stranger to sudden loss. Every year, people lose their lives due to the negligence of another in wrongful death incidents, something that can be a particularly traumatic ordeal.
Wrongful Death Cases in Zephyr Cove
Wrongful deaths occur when an individual is killed due to the negligent behavior of another individual or entity, including organizations or companies. Typically in these situations, a family member or beneficiary, if the victim has any, will file a wrongful death suit.
Although the statute of limitations regarding wrongful death crimes varies on a state-to-state basis, Nevada’s statute of limitations is six years. Wrongful death claims apply if:
- The victim leaves behind a spouse, children or other beneficiaries, or if the death resulted in monetary loss
- The individual died as a direct result of the defendant
- The defendant was negligent
Typically, the goal in these types of cases is the recovery of financial losses that were incurred as a result of the sudden death. Someone’s untimely death could lead to:
- Excessive medical or funeral expenses
- The loss of inheritance, care or benefits
- Emotional and mental anguish
- Lost anticipated earnings
In Zephyr Cove and the surrounding communities in Douglas County, a wrongful death attorney can help investigate the circumstances surrounding untimely death, and assist in recovering any losses incurred during this difficult time.
If You Have a Wrongful Death Claim
With wrongful death claims, it is imperative that claims are filed prior to the statue of limitations. If a claim is not filed within that time frame, evidence may no longer be applicable, although it might be overwhelming. Addressing the claim early ensures that the case follows the proper legal channels – a factor that can make a world of difference in your case and the future of your family.
