Where to Find a Towed Vehicle after an Accident on I-15 in Las Vegas, Nevada

Where to Find a Towed Vehicle After an Accident on I-15 in Las Vegas, Nevada

If you have been involved in a car, truck or motorcycle accident on I-15 / US 93 / US 95 in Las Vegas, Nevada your vehicle will be removed from the scene by one of the many tow trucks that respond to law enforcement requests. If you are injured in an accident, you may not have access to the towing company or impound lot’s contact information and tracking your vehicle down can be a frustrating task. Our online tools are here to help.

Who Regulates Towing Services in Las Vegas?

Although the Nevada Legislation’s Rules of the Road dictate towing policies in Las Vegas, NV, towing is regulated by the Nevada Transportation Authority, and the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department must comply with the legislation that is in place to keep the city streets free from vehicles that were abandoned purposefully by their owners or operators after an arrest or traffic collision.

Can I Decide Where My Car Is Towed After a Car Accident in Las Vegas?

It depends on the circumstances of your car accident. If you are alert after an accident and have a preferred tow yard or auto body shop you would like your car delivered to, alert the LVMPD officer at the scene and provide the proper direction. If the authorities have already contacted a towing agency, or you are unable to provide any direction because of your immediate medical needs, the process will proceed blindly.

How Can I Find Where My Car Was Towed After an Accident in Nevada?

Car crashes in Las Vegas can lead to confusing circumstances that preclude you from knowing the details of where to find your car.

If your car has been towed after a traffic accident in Las Vegas call the non-emergency police line by dialing 311 to gather more information on where your car was impounded.

When Should I Recover My Car from a Tow Yard in Las Vegas?

If you have been involved in a car accident in Las Vegas, chances are your vehicle has sustained damage. DO NOT remove your vehicle from the tow yard, or make any changes to its appearance, until each driver’s insurance representative has taken pictures and recorded the overall damage that resulted from the crash.

After the assessment is complete, the insurance company will alert you to remove the vehicle to avoid additional daily costs from accruing.

Will My Insurance Company Cover the Costs of My Towed Car?

This depends on your coverage and policy terms. Typically, insurance policies cover the tow itself, but not the storage or miscellaneous fees – unless it is expressly worded as covered.

If the policy covers storage fees, it will only do so for the time your vehicle must be held. Once your car is released by the insurance company you will be responsible for the additional charges that accrue after that date.

Am I the Only Person Who Can Remove My Car from a Tow Yard in Las Vegas?

The registered owner of the vehicle, who can provide proof of the legal title and photo ID can retrieve the car from a Las Vegas tow yard – no one else can.

What If I Cannot Remove the Vehicle, and It Must Be Towed to a Collision Repair Shop?

If your car is damaged and can only be moved by a tow truck to a collision repair shop, you must ensure that all the fees from the tow yard are paid in full before they will release it to the tow company of your choice. If the current towing company transports it to the body shop, you will be responsible for the fees and will need to talk to your insurance company directly regarding payment or reimbursement.
