What is the Process for Filing a Nevada Auto Insurance Claim?
For the most part, claims start through your insurer. Even if you weren’t liable for an accident, you may need to report it within a certain amount of time depending on your policy–failure to do so may bar you from receiving benefits. If you have questions about this step, or don’t feel comfortable doing it yourself, you can always retain a Summerlin car accident attorney to help you.
Once your insurer has been notified of the accident, an adjuster will probably reach out to you for additional information, including:
A brief description of the incident
Where and when it took place
The contact information for the other drivers involved
If police responded, the name of the police department and the police report number
To be clear, you should communicate only with your personal insurer; never communicate with or give a statement to the liable party’s insurer without an attorney present. Once the claim process has started, operate under the assumption anything you say to the liable insurer or opposing counsel will be used against you. There’s really no scenario in which you should explain or comment on anything related to the case, and It’s always best to air on the side of caution and let your attorney handle all correspondence.
Let us evaluate your situation and determine the best path to take to help you achieve your goals. Give our injury attorneys a call today at (725) 900-9000.
What Kinds of Compensation Can Summerlin Crash Victims Receive?
If you’ve been involved in an injury-inducing car accident, you are likely faced with financial, emotional, and psychological damages. As such, Van Law Firm argues for each and every form of compensation on behalf of our clients, including but not limited to:
Medical expenses, including prescription and rehabilitation costs
Property damage reimbursement
Wages and benefits lost from time away from work
Non-economic damages such as pain and suffering or loss of enjoyment
Punitive damages may also be awarded in severe cases
What are Nevada’s Auto Insurance Requirements?
Just like most other jurisdictions, Nevada has set minimum amounts of liability coverage for each registered driver, and they are as follows:
$50,000 for bodily injury, per accident
$25,000 for bodily injury, per person
$20,000 for property damage, per accident
Keep in mind that motorists are not required to carry any other coverage than the minimums mentioned above. However, we strongly recommend that all motorists carry as much coverage as they can afford, as it can help you when an accident occurs, whether you are the victim or the liable party.
No obligation consultations are always free.

Consider Nevada’s Modified Comparative Fault Laws
The best attorney-client relationships are the ones that are built around honesty and transparent communication–both sides have to be on the same page at all times. We work hard on behalf of our clients, and the only thing we ask is that you are honest with us, especially if you believe you may be partly responsible for the accident at hand.
Nevada enforces a policy known as modified comparative fault–essentially, all parties may share in liability, which is assigned on a percentage scale. Any percentage of liability that is assigned to you is then deducted from your overall settlement, and any party with over half (50 percent) of liability cannot recover anything. It’s best to discuss this with your attorney as soon as possible, to avoid losing money down the line.
