Once that expires, you can no longer file a lawsuit against the liable party.

Who Can File & What Damages are Recoverable
Nevada allows the personal representative of the decedent’s estate to file a wrongful death claim in pursuit of compensation. Surviving spouses and children can also bring about a lawsuit. Lastly, the parents of the decedent can file a claim if there are no surviving children, spouses, or named representative of the decedent’s estate. It is worth noting that while multiple parties can file a claim, only one claim can be brought to fruition, as the liable party cannot be held liable more than once for a single event.
Damages you can cite in your wrongful death claim include:
- Cost of the decedent’s final medical treatments
- Burial, funeral, cremation, or preservation costs
- Wages the decedent would have earned in life
- Property damage caused by the same event that led to the decedent’s passing
- Loss of consortium, companionship, or parental guidance and protection
- Loss of financial or property-related benefits to heirs
