You Pay Nothing to Partner With Our Car Accident Team
You have enough financial obligations after a car accident in Nevada. We don’t want to add attorney’s fees to the mix. That’s why we offer help on a contingency basis. You don’t have to worry about retainers or hourly charges. We only get paid once you win.
We offer this arrangement to all car accident claimants. You don’t pay upfront fees or costs. We get paid at your case’s conclusion. Payment for our help comes from the award we secure for you. You might think: “That sounds too good to be true.” But it is! This is just one of the many ways we serve injured claimants in Nevada.
Nevada’s Filing Deadlines for Car Accident Lawsuits
The statute of limitations is your car accident case’s filing deadline. Compliance is a must; the court system rejects cases filed outside the applicable period. Nevada Revised Statutes § 11.190 notes that you generally have two years to file your lawsuit. This deadline is calculated from the date of your accident.
Once you retain Van Law Firm on your case, we’ll take action and file it within the appropriate period. This does more than protect your right to damages; it leaves the door open for you to sue the at-fault party.
What Damages Can You Recover in a Nevada Car Accident?
Recoverable damages in your car accident case may include:
Financial Losses (Also Known as “Economic” or “Special” Damages)
Your financial losses, such as your medical bills, come with documentation. We use receipts, invoices, and billing statements to calculate these damages. Recoverable financial losses may include:
- Healthcare expenses, past and future
- Lost income and other job-related benefits, such as paid time off
- The cost of fixing your car
- The value of your car before it was totaled
- Temporary transportation arrangements
- Childcare expenses
- In-home modifications to accommodate a disability
This isn’t an exhaustive list. For instance, if you lost a loved one in a car accident, Van Law Firm can seek reimbursement for their funeral costs.
Non-Financial Losses (Also Known as “Non-Economic” Damages)
Your car accident-related losses go beyond monetary expenses. They affect each corner of your life, including your relationships, mental health, and mobility. Your settlement should account for that.
Compensable non-economic damages in your case include:
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of consortium/companionship with a loved one
- Mental health complications, such as post-traumatic stress disorder
As noted, this isn’t a complete list of damages. Your settlement will reflect the specifics of your situation. We’ll do everything in our power to seek what you need.
Your Financial Recovery Options After a Car Accident in Nevada
When seeking damages following a car accident, you generally have these options:
You Can File an Insurance Claim
Nevada requires motorists to carry liability insurance. If a driver causes an accident, their liability coverage should cover the other party’s losses. Per Nevada Revised Statutes § 485.185, everyone should carry:
- $25,000 for injuries or death for one person in a collision
- $50,000 for injuries or deaths per accident
- $20,000 for property damage per accident
Filing a claim is more than asking the liable insurer for compensation. It requires us to:
- Present evidence of your losses
- Send a demand letter
- Determine fault and liability
- Manage all communications with the claims adjuster
- Understand the liability policy
- Calculate your losses
- Negotiate for what you need
Van Law Firm resolves many car accident cases through negotiations leading to insurance settlements. However, this isn’t your only option for seeking damages. If the liability policy doesn’t cover your losses, you can pursue a lawsuit in civil court.
You Can File a Civil Lawsuit
Filing a lawsuit isn’t like the court cases you’ve seen on TV. It takes months to years to prepare a lawsuit––and sometimes even longer if complications arise. Our Nevada car accident attorneys are seasoned litigators. The inside of the courtroom is our home away from home. If a lawsuit could yield recovery for your losses, we will:
- File your case with the appropriate court
- Apply correct law to your case
- Present your damages
- Take depositions and cross-examine witnesses
- Consult with field experts
- Demand fair compensation
While your case unfolds, we may continue negotiations with the liable insurance company. If it decides to settle your case, we can accept the offer and drop your lawsuit. If not, however, we’ll continue advocating for you in court.
