What To Do Immediately After An Auto Accident

Nevada holds a negligent party who caused an accident responsible for paying the resulting damages.

But even if you are partially at fault, you may still be able to recover. In Nevada as long as you are less than 50% responsible for the accident, you can recover for the damages caused the other party’s negligence.

Adverse insurance companies will often try to shift the blame onto the victim to reduce the amount they have to pay. Having our team evaluate the evidence, interview witnesses, and argue your side can make the difference.

The clock starts on your personal injury claim the moment the accident happens.

Your auto accident has a deadline for recovery. Personal injury claims in Nevada must be filed within a two-year statute of limitations, which starts on the date of your accident.

What NOT to Do:

If you have been involved in a car collision or other personal injury case and intend on filing a claim, it’s important that you don’t jeopardize your claim.

Factors that could seriously impede your recovery in an auto accident claim include:

  • Discussing your accident with the insurance adjuster
  • Talking about your case on social media
  • Taking the first, often low, offer from the insurance company
  • Not following the doctor’s orders or missing appointments with your medical providers.
  • Switching attorneys
  • Trying to be a “tough guy” and ignoring your injuries.

If the at-fault driver is uninsured or doesn’t carry enough insurance to compensate you for your injuries, contact our team immediately. Our team can evaluate your claim and find out if you can recover from other sources such as your insurance policy, other policyholders you live with, and other policyholders in the at-fault driver’s household. In some cases, multiple insurance policies may be available to compensate you.
