What To Do After A Car Accident

If you have experienced injury following an automobile accident in Las Vegas, the police will arrive at the scene and will collect all of the above information. If you have experienced an injury, you should:

  • Call 9-1-1 to report the accident injury.
  • Obtain medical treatment immediately. This is a very critical step. Even if your injuries do not seem critical, if left untreated, they can later develop into a more serious condition.
  • Speak to the police, provide a statement of what happened, and make sure an SR-1 form is completed. Do not, under any circumstance, admit fault.
  • Contact an attorney IMMEDIATELY. You should do this before filing a report with your insurance company.

It is crucial that you consult with us before reporting any type of statement to the insurance companies. They will likely contact you within days or even hours in an attempt to collect a statement. If this happens, simply advise them that you are in the process of setting up a personal injury claim and your legal advisor will contact them.

Why you should hire an attorney

A car accident (also referred to as car crash), can negatively affect an individual for the remainder of their life. It is not at all uncommon for car accident victims to become temporarily or permanently disabled, leaving them with unwanted medical bills and years of rehabilitation therapy. In most cases, accident injury victims do not come to realize that they have even suffered a car accident injury until it’s too late. Some injuries can sometimes take days, weeks, or even months to develop. If left untreated, a minor injury can potentially develop into a life-long disability. Common disabilities include chronic neck pain, back pain, nerve damage, anxiety, depression, and more.

Common Causes of Car Accidents & Injuries

Every accident is different, however, there are some accident types that predominantly occur. Understanding the common causes of car crashes can better help the drivers of Las Vegas, NV stay alert, aware, and operate their vehicles more safely. The type of motor vehicle collision you experience can oftentimes pinpoint the cause of the accident. Let’s say, for example, you were involved in a rollover accident. The most common culprit to this type of accident? T-bone accidents and tire blowouts.  Below are a few of the most common types of auto accidents and their respective causes:

  • Truck accidents. Truck accidents can be catastrophic for the smaller vehicles involved in the crash. These types of crashes usually stem from a trucking driver’s error, such as drowsiness, distracted driving, following too closely, and failure to yield/merge in a reasonable manner.
  • Rear-end collisions. This is one of the more prominent types of accidents in Las Vegas, NV. Drivers who follow too closely or become distracted by their cell phones run the risk of rear-ending the vehicles in front of them. Rear end accidents can cause injuries such as whiplash and other neck and back injuries that will require ongoing treatment.
  • T-bone collisions. T-bone accidents typically happen when a driver runs a red light or fails to yield to oncoming traffic. Common injuries from this type of crash include broken bones, lacerations, brain injuries, and in some severe cases, wrongful death.
  • Rollover accidents. This is by far the most catastrophic type of car accident in Las Vegas, NV. Rollover accidents occur when two vehicles collide with one another at high speeds, causing one or both vehicles to flip upside down. Drivers and passengers alike run the risk of suffering from broken bones, burns, lacerations, loss of limbs, back injuries, spine injuries, head injuries, and wrongful death.

Regardless of how your accident happened, if you’ve fallen victim to a personal injury at the hands of a negligent motorist, you need an aggressive Las Vegas car accident lawyer on your side. Contact the personal injury attorneys at The Injury Firm today to discover how you can recover compensation for your injuries.

Recoverable Damages

If you have been injured in a car accident, your primary objective (after seeking medical care) should be filing an injury claim against the other drivers’ insurance company so you can move past the accident and get on with your life.

Although the other driver may have been responsible for the accident, you will typically deal with their insurance company to seek compensation for your damages. In the State of Nevada, police officers will respond to a car accident involving an injury. They will complete what is known as an SR-1 report that will provide significant information regarding the drivers involved, witness information, automobile damage, and injuries.

Once all is said and done, you may be wondering what type of damage you are entitled to pursue for your accident injuries. In the State of Nevada, you are allowed to collect on both economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages include physical losses, such as medical bills (present and future), repair bills, lost wages (current and future). Non-economic damages include emotional losses, such as pain and suffering, loss of consortium, and loss of quality of life.

Most importantly, if you have been injured in a car accident, the best thing you can do to protect your claim is to contact a lawyer immediately to ensure you are adequately protected from the get-go.

Nevada’s Statute of Limitations Rule

The Nevada Statute of Limitations rule provides a two-year timeframe for which injury victims can file a personal injury claim. What that means is, in Nevada, if you are injured in a crash, you will only have two years from the date of the crash to file an injury claim if you wish to recover damages.

Moreover, you will need to preserve any evidence you can from the crash. This includes police reports, witness information, photographs, and video (by a witness; by yourself; by the traffic lights). By working with an experienced attorney, you can rest assured that all of the evidence will be preserved quickly and efficiently, saving you stress and headache down the road.

Therefore, to best protect your injury claim, contact our lawyer immediately for the best possible results.
