Car accidents are traumatic, and you might not know what to do. Make sure to avoid these five mistakes after a car accident. Follow these steps after an accident:
Most traffic accidents are the result of driver error and negligence. Here are some of the most common types of driver negligence.
Car accidents cause injuries ranging from minor to fatal. Always wear your seat belts and use approved car seats for infants and children. These safety precautions reduce your risk of severe injury or death.
Car accidents are a leading cause of traumatic brain injury. A concussion is a type of brain injury.
A spinal cord injury may cause paralysis, including total, partial, temporary, or permanent. Car crashes also cause painful herniated discs.
Chest injuries range from bruises to broken ribs to internal injuries. Any blow to the chest endangers internal organs, which could be life-threatening.
You could suffer severe burn injuries. Depending on the location and degree of burn, these injuries could be permanent and debilitating.
One injury you might suffer in a Las Vegas car accident is damage to your brain or head. When another vehicle hits yours, your head could violently shake or snap back and forth, causing whiplash, a traumatic brain injury, or concussion.
A person's spinal cord can also be crushed in an accident. Depending on the location and severity of the injury, you could suffer different types of paralysis, including total, partial, temporary, or permanent. When this occurs, you lose feeling and function below the waist, below the neck, or somewhere in between.
Another injury you might incur in a Las Vegas car crash is damage to your chest. Chest injuries range from bruises to broken ribs to internal injuries. When you're thrust forward due to impact with another vehicle, you might strike the dashboard or steering wheel if you're not using a seat belt.
If the car wreck causes a fire, then you may suffer severe burn injuries. Airbags may also cause burns. Depending on the location and degree of burn, these injuries could be permanent and debilitating.
Under Nevada law, you have two years from the date of your injury accident to file a lawsuit against the negligent party. The same statute applies if you lost a loved one in a fatal car wreck and wish to bring a wrongful death lawsuit to recover damages.
If you want to file a property damage lawsuit for a car wreck, you must do so within three years.
It’s normal to have questions about your car accident and what to expect next. Here are answers to frequently asked questions. Call Oronoz & Ericsson, LLC if you have additional questions or want a free case review.
It is difficult to say how much your claim is worth without reviewing your case’s details. Generally, the more extensive your injuries, the more your claim is potentially worth. An attorney assigns a value to your losses based on how your injuries prevent you from returning to normal daily activities and employment.
Oronoz & Ericsson, LLC can connect you with local body shops and mechanics. We know it’s frustrating not to have your vehicle, so we also help you with car rentals.
The person who caused the crash should pay for your repairs. Suppose the estimate to repair your car exceeds what your vehicle is worth. In that case, the insurance company will consider your vehicle totaled.
We file a claim for property damage with the at-fault driver’s insurance.
When someone fails to act or acts recklessly, injuries usually occur. An attorney reviews the circumstances of your case to determine how the other party breached their duty of care or legal responsibility. Evidence such as a failed DUI test, skid marks, or a red-light camera can help establish fault in a car accident.
Your uninsured or underinsured insurance coverage pays for your medical bills, property damage, and other expenses. You’ll also file a claim with your uninsured coverage if you’re involved in a hit-and-run accident.
If you don’t have this coverage, you could file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault driver. Although they don’t have insurance, they could have other financial assets. There might be a third-party, such as an employer, with whom you can file a claim or a lawsuit.
A car accident attorney helps you understand your legal options.
The minimum car requirements for car insurance are:
Although the state doesn’t require uninsured motorists or collision insurance, it’s a good idea to add this extra level of protection.
When an accident prevents you from working, you can pursue lost wages from the at-fault driver. Liability insurance often covers lost pay. You can also file a lawsuit to recover lost income. An attorney helps calculate lost revenue using your pay stubs or timesheets.
There are two ways to file an auto insurance claim: by yourself or with help from a car accident attorney. To file a claim, you’ll need to obtain:
Once you’ve compiled the information, you’ll send it either by mail or through the insurer’s electronic portal.
Many people prefer to have an experienced car accident lawyer file their claim. They enjoy the peace of mind of legal protection and professional negotiating skills when it’s time to discuss a settlement.
Going to court is certainly a possibility. It’s often one of the best ways to ensure you get the most out of your car accident claim. It may be possible to avoid going to court if you obtain a fair and full injury settlement from the insurance company. Since insurers don’t typically compensate for non-economic damages, going to court might be your best option for pain and suffering compensation.
It is never a good idea to give the insurance company a statement. Insurers look for excuses to reduce your injury settlement. If they can place blame on you, they can get away with reducing the amount they compensate you. Give the insurance company your Las Vegas car accident lawyer’s contact information and let us handle them on your behalf.
Yes, even though children cannot advocate for themselves, they still have the same rights to compensation as adults do. As their parent or legal guardian, it’s up to you to act and fight for the money they deserve.
Unfortunately, the length of time it takes to settle a car accident claim can vary widely. Several factors can play into how long it will take to complete the claims process. Some cases can take as few as a few weeks, while others can take years.
