Compassionate, Experienced & Highly Rated
“… I have met with attorneys who have wanted to “take control” of the conversation every time we talk. Laura is not one of these. She listens attentively, makes sure she understands all aspects of the situation, and then uses her vast knowledge of injury law to help out. I would be confident sending any friends or family to her for legal advice and help. …”

Nevada Claims Must Be Filed Within 2 Years of the Wrongful Death
In Nevada, the wrongful death statute of limitations is two years from the date the person passed away.
However, it is important to quickly retain the services of a qualified personal injury attorney to preserve all evidence involving the claim as quickly as possible. If a wrongful death claim is not filed by a Las Vegas personal injury attorney within two years of the date the person passed away, no claim can be brought, and if the evidence is not quickly and accurately preserved, your claim may be weakened and you may not receive the outcome you deserve.
