Four Steps to Take After a Suffering Serious Injury in Nevada

Dealing with a serious injury is always stressful. Whether you were involved in a traffic collision, a slip and fall, or any other type of accident, it is crucial that you know what to do to protect your health, well-being, and ability to recover financial compensation. Here are four key steps that you should take after any serious accident in Nevada:

  • Get Medical Attention: Severe injuries always require emergency medical attention. A moderate or mild injury should be evaluated as soon as possible. You need to get professional medical attention after an accident.
  • Report the Accident: If you were injured due to the negligence of another party, the accident should be reported. A car accident should be reported to law enforcement. An injury at a Nevada business should be reported to the property owner. Reporting an accident establishes a paper trail and serves as a form of notification.
  • Secure Evidence: To the best of your ability, it is a good idea to try to secure relevant evidence at the scene of an accident. Take photographs, get contact details for witnesses, and record any other information that seems relevant.
  • Consult With a Lawyer: You do not have to go through the claims process all by yourself. The sooner you have a top Nevada personal injury attorney on your side, the better position you will be in to get justice, accountability, and full financial compensation.

Your Accident Requires an Immediate Investigation

One of the biggest mistakes that you can make after a serious accident is waiting to initiate the claims process. Liability in a personal injury case is based on fault. To hold a defendant legally liable for your injuries, you need to prove their negligence. Without an in-depth and competent investigation, important evidence can be lost. At Ladah Law Firm, our Las Vegas personal injury lawyers are always ready to hit the ground running.

You should be able to focus on your health, your recovery, and your family. We focus on the details of your accident, gathering evidence and information to help with your case. Having access to all of the information of your accident, your personal injuries, and your medical situation will help us to provide a rebuttal to the claims by the insurance company regarding your settlement. In comprehensively investigating your accident, our Nevada personal injury attorneys will gather all of the evidence you need to prove liability.

Personal Injury Liability and How it Works In Nevada

Liability is Based on Negligence

To hold a defendant or insurance carrier responsible for an accident in Nevada, a claimant/plaintiff must prove liability. For the most part, personal injury claims are brought under the legal theory of negligence. Under the most simple definition, negligence is the “failure to take proper care in doing something.” A party whose negligent actions or inactions caused an accident can be held liable for the resulting injuries.

The Specific Circumstances Always Matter

What counts as negligence depends entirely on the specific circumstances of the case. You need to determine what duty of care the defendant owed the victim and why/how they breached that obligation. For example, a driver may be negligent for speeding, driving recklessly, or violating a traffic law. Alternatively, a business or property owner may be negligent for failing to address a safety hazard on the premises.

Nevada is a Comparative Negligence State

Nevada uses a comparative negligence standard. Under N.R.S. § 41-141, each party to an accident will be held liable for their “share” of the negligence. An injured victim deemed partially at fault for their own accident may still be entitled to bring a claim, but their total compensation may be reduced. Every serious accident in Nevada requires an in-depth investigation to determine exactly what happened and why it happened.

As an example of comparative negligence, imagine that a person suffered $20,000 in damages after a slip and fall accident in Nevada. If the business is found at-fault for 100 percent of the accident, the victim could hold them liable for 100 percent of the damages ($20,000). However, if the victim was found to be 20 percent at-fault for their own slip and fall accident—perhaps because they were running in an interior hallway—they would be liable for one-fifth of their own damages ($4,000).

You Deserve the Maximum Financial Compensation

  • Emergency medical treatment;
  • Medical bills and related costs;
  • Rehabilitative therapies;
  • Lost wages;
  • Loss of earning potential;
  • Pain and suffering;
  • Emotional distress;
  • Permanent scarring or impairment; and
  • Wrongful death of a family member.

Insurance Companies Make the Claims Process Difficult

Personal injury cases are often defended by big insurance carriers. One of the challenges that injured victims face after an accident is navigating the insurance claims process. In essence, an insurance company is a roadblock. While they have legal responsibilities to act in a fair and good-faith manner, they are not neutral parties. Unfortunately, these corporations are focused on their profits, not on what is best for you and your family. Here are five tips for dealing with insurance adjusters and insurance companies after a serious accident:

  • 1. Do Not Give a Recorded Statement: Insurance adjusters are trained to get people talking after an accident. The more you say, the more likely that they can find something that can be used against you to reduce the value of your case. You are not required to give a recorded statement immediately after an accident.
  • 2. Never Admit/Accept Fault for an Accident: An insurance adjuster may try to pressure you into accepting full or partial fault for an accident. Do not admit fault. It is simply not your job to figure out who bears the liability for an accident. Let your Nevada personal injury attorney deal with questions of fault. You should focus on your health.
  • 3. Request Communications in Writing: To the extent that you communicate with an insurance company, it is a best practice to get all correspondence in writing or confirmed in writing. By getting everything in writing, you will reduce the risk of miscommunication leading to a dispute.
  • 4. Avoiding Signing a Full Release for Your Medical Records: After an accident, an insurance company has a right to review certain relevant medical records—but not your entire medical history. In many cases, insurers try to get people to sign over their entire medical records. Be careful: They may be looking for an excuse to pin some of your injuries on a pre-existing condition. Talk to a lawyer before you sign anything.
  • 5. Work Through a Nevada Personal Injury Lawyer: When dealing with large insurance companies, the best practice is simple: Work through an experienced personal injury attorney. A lawyer who has dealt with major insurance companies will know how to make sure that your rights are protected.
