What should I do after a car accident in Las Vegas, Nevada?

If you have been injured in an accident in Las Vegas, our attorneys recommend that you take the following steps. All these steps are essential, and your case may be weak if you have not taken each step properly.

  • Get Medical Attention Right Away. This is the first and most important step if you are involved in an accident and are personally injured. Even if you are not injured, you should still be examined by a medical professional. This will help you build your case with official medical documentation and how severe your injuries are from the accident. This will also help prove that the accident caused these injuries.
  • Preserve Evidence. Gather all evidence including videos, pictures, witnesses and contacts, vehicles involved in the accident. All of this information should be gathered right after the accident has happened. All of this information will be used as evidence and will help your personal injury case if it goes to court.
  • Try to Avoid Giving Insurance Companies Details. You don’t want to give information about the accident to the other insurance company, as this can be used against you. Consult with your attorney first. Many insurance companies try to pay out as little as possible to claims, and in some cases nothing at all. Insurance companies will ask specific questions that can undervalue your claim, or even deny the claim. This is where your attorney will see what the insurance companies are up to with their questions and will prevent this from happening. The best way to communicate with insurance companies is through your lawyer. Also, beware of your public social media profiles. Insurance companies can use social media information about you and what you post to dispute the facts of a case. Do not post anything about your accident or injuries on social media.
  • Consult with an experienced Accident Attorney in Las Vegas.  An experienced Las Vegas lawyer will help you prevent any actions that can lead to a dispute with your case. You should contact your attorney within the first 24-48 hours of being injured.

What do I have to prove for my Las Vegas accident lawsuit?

Usually, an accident lawsuit in Las Vegas falls under a negligence legal theory. This basically asserts that the other party was negligent, and now they are responsible for your injuries. In order to prove negligence, you must show:

  • The at-fault party was negligent. You have to show that the negligent party had a duty of care in acting responsibly, but breached this study of care. For example, if you were involved in an accident, you could assert that the other party was texting while driving, and they had a duty not to do so.
  • The negligence caused you to sustain injuries. Injuries could vary from whiplash, to traumatic brain injuries.
  • You now have damages that you are seeking compensation for. There must be evidence of harm shown, such as lost income, medical bills, and pain and suffering.

Could I get a new car after a car accident in Nevada?

The short answer is it could depend on the circumstances of the accident.  If your car is determined to be a total loss, you may be able to seek compensation from your insurance company to purchase a new car. However, the at-fault insurance company will try to downplay their liability as much as possible and pay a portion of the value of the car. If your car only needs a minor repair, you may not get the replacement value for your vehicle. That’s why it is very important to seek an aggressive Las Vegas personal injury attorney to handle your claims for you and to ensure that you receive compensation for your loss.
