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:
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.
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.
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 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).
The insurance company representing the liable party in your accident has no intention of offering you a fair settlement. Their goal is to pay you as little as possible. Insurance companies put an enormous amount of resources into protecting and preserving their own profits. Our experience and knowledge of their tactics helps us to thwart their efforts to deny you what you need and deserve. At Ladah Law Firm, our Nevada personal injury lawyers are laser-focused on helping every client maximize their compensation. You may be eligible to obtain monetary compensation for the following damages:
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:
