The outcomes of car accident cases that result in nerve damage are not public record. Because there is little to no information available, there is no telling what the average settlements are for these types of cases.
When you work with our team, we will determine the cost of your damages and fight for compensation on your behalf. We can do this at the negotiating table and in the courtroom. However, you must act within the parameters set by NRS §11.190(4)(e).
Certain Details Will Determine How Much in Damages You Are Entitled To
Below, here are some details that will affect the overall value of your car accident case:
The Types of Injuries You Suffered
Your daily pain levels, expected recovery time, and necessary medical treatments will all contribute to the value of your claim. As a general rule of thumb, the more severe your injuries, the more compensation you could receive.
The Cost of Your Economic Losses
Economic losses are accident-related items that have a monetary value. Some examples include:
- Past and future medical bills
- Past lost wages
- Future loss of earning capacity
- Property damage costs
We can consult economists and your healthcare team to learn more about the value of your case. Additionally, we can use your pay stubs, employment records, invoices, and billing statements to assign value to your losses.
Your Quality of Life
The Mayo Clinic says that nerve damage can impact your mobility and overall quality of life. You may be unable to exercise, maintain employment, or care for your children. All of these details can be included in your claim.
Your Anticipated Recovery Period
Some instances of nerve damage can be remedied within a few weeks. However, for some people, their injuries never go away. Your doctor can provide your legal team with information about the length of your recovery period and medical care. The longer your recovery period, the more money you could get.

What Are Some Non-Economic Damages You Can Receive?
In addition to securing compensation for your financial losses, you can also get coverage for your non-economic damages. Examples can include:
- Past and future pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of consortium
- Past and future mental anguish
The value of these losses will be determined by the facts of your situation.
How Our Legal Team Will Attempt to Recover Compensation for Your Losses
First, your car accident lawyer will need to determine the details of your situation. By talking to witnesses, your insurer, and health care team, they can better understand the circumstances of your collision.
You could recoup compensation through one of the following avenues:
An Insurance Settlement
All motorists in Nevada must carry liability insurance, per the Nevada Division of Insurance (DOI). Your car accident lawyer will try to resolve your case through negotiations. This process will involve:
- Showing the insurer evidence of fault and liability
- Gathering evidence
- Determining the details of the liable policy
- Calculating your losses
We will also protect you against unfair insurance tactics that attempt to discredit your claim.
A Court Award
If negotiations fail, then we will file a lawsuit against the negligent party. This will be the party that caused your accident, not their insurer. Filing a lawsuit involves:
- Understanding the statute of limitations
- Following courtroom procedures
- Interviewing witnesses
- Managing your case’s paperwork and filing
We will keep negotiating with the insurer even after we file your lawsuit in court.
