Questions to Ask Our Car Accident Lawyers
We want you to be completely confident in your decision to work with us on your car accident claim. To reach that point, it is natural to want to ask us a lot of questions. We are here to answer them candidly because the best cases start with trust between the client and the attorney.
A few questions our new clients usually ask us are:
- How many car accident cases has your firm handled in the past?
- How long do you think my case will take to reach a conclusion?
- Are you confident in my case’s chances?
- Who, specifically, will be handling my case?
- How are you paid for your legal services?
- Do I have to do anything while my case develops?
We will be happy to discuss all of these questions and more with you. Clarity and transparency are important, and you should expect nothing less from the legal team that you choose to work on your car accident claim. To find out more, contact us at any time.
Auto Insurance Requirements in Nevada
Nevada requires drivers to carry minimal insurance coverage of 25/50/25, which means:
- $25,000 bodily injury liability coverage per person
- $50,000 bodily injury liability coverage per accident
- $25,000 property damage liability coverage per accident
The driver who hit you should at least have this amount of insurance coverage to pay for your damages, or else they are breaking the law whenever they drive. This minimal coverage amount might not pay for all your damages, though, so we can explore the possibility of filing against other policies held by the driver who hit you. MedPay or uninsured/underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) insurance policies that you purchased from your insurance company can also be considered.
Can You Sue If You Were Partially at Fault?
Nevada has a comparative fault system for deciding liability in a car accident with a 50% modifier. As long as you are not more than 50% at fault for your car accident, you can file a claim against the other party or parties and demand a financial recovery.
Your percentage of liability will reduce the recovery you receive by an equal percentage, though. For example, you are owed $100,000 in damages but you are 30% at fault for the crash. In this case, you could possibly recover $70,000, which is $100,000 minus 30%.
Let’s Get Your Case Rolling
Waiting too long to take legal action can be a big problem for your case. Not only will the details of the accident become more difficult to accurately recall, but you could also miss Nevada’s statute of limitations. If that expires, then you can’t file a claim at all.
