Welcome to Ruiz Law Firm

Wrongful Death Law Firm Serving Las Vegas & Henderson
When the loved ones of someone who has passed away due to another’s negligence or misconduct take civil action, it’s known as a wrongful death claim. They allow families to seek monetary damages on the grounds of lost financial or emotional support.
A wrongful death is when an individual dies because of the recklessness, negligence, or actions of another person. It’s up to your attorney to prove that the responsible party had a duty of care for the person who died, and that they breached that standard of care through their action.
Your lawyer will also attempt to prove that those negligent actions directly caused the death of your loved one, and that as a result, you suffered from emotional or financial damages. Some of the most common causes of wrongful deaths are:
If you are the spouse, parent or child of the deceased individual, it’s possible that you can seek damages via a wrongful death claim. Now is the time to start. Filing your claim immediately will ensure that you meet Nevada’s statute of limitations, and make your case more likely to succeed.
Our lawyers know what you’re going through. We know that no sum of money can ever make up for a loved one’s death. But it's only right that those who caused this tragedy should be held to account. We’ll help seek justice for your family.

Ruiz Law Firm and our team of wrongful death lawyers has vast experience of winning all kinds of personal injury cases, including motor vehicle cases, dog bites, slip and falls, traumatic brain injuries, workers comp cases and more.
We are proud to serve clients from all over the Las Vegas and Henderson area, as well as across the whole state of Nevada. If you’ve been injured and are looking for justice, we’ll fight on your behalf. Contact us today and let’s get started.
The majority of personal injury law firms (including our own) charge clients a percentage of the total payout or settlement they receive, after their case has been won. This is known as a contingency fee, meaning you won’t have to pay your attorney until after your case has been successfully concluded.
If your case is simple and straightforward and there’s only a small sum of money at stake, you could do without a wrongful death lawyer. But personal injury cases are usually complex. You should also be aware that self-representing often leads to smaller payouts - or to no payout at all.
If your injury was the fault of another person, organization or entity, you could have a case. However, a consultation with a wrongful death attorney is needed to be sure. Personal injury cases are usually complex, so you’ll need atop attorney to back you up.
If you were injured working or on a job, you’ll likely be filing a workers comp case, rather than a personal injury case. We’ve fought and won many such cases, for clients from across the state of Nevada.
It’s never possible to say exactly how long a case will take, from hiring an attorney to getting your settlement. As a general rule, cases involving more complex injuries take longer, especially if a big payout is involved.
Possibly. We are totally focused on getting you a fair settlement, and we may be able to achieve that through negotiation, without the need to go to court. If your case does end up in court, our wrongful death attorneys will fight hard to get you the right result.
With us, never. Our law firm operates on a contingency basis. That means we don’t charge you anything until we win your case, period. You have enough things to worry about without thinking about legal fees.
With few exceptions, you have only two years to file a personal injury case in the state of Nevada. You should act as quickly as possible, because if you miss the deadline, you won’t be able to recover any damages.
It’s hard for anyone to put an exact figure on the worth of your case. It may be possible to approximate how much you might collect - based on your insurance, the at-fault party’s insurance, their assets, and legal maximum payouts.
You could still have a case. Just after your accident, the adrenaline pumping through your body might stop you from realizing you’re injured. It might be days, weeks, or even months before your injuries become fully apparent.
