Car accidents are devastating catastrophes, often resulting in life-threatening injuries. Fortunately, most people on the road do their utmost to drive responsibly by being aware of their surroundings, limiting distractions, and obeying traffic laws. However, some drivers blatantly disregard their obligation to drive responsibly, partaking in reckless behaviors such as speeding, driving under the influence, and allowing themselves to be distracted by their electronic devices. Such negligent behavior will inevitably result in a crash. When a wreck takes place that inflicts severe or fatal injuries, the injured party has the right to seek compensation for their suffering.

If you or a loved one have been injured due to another driver’s error, you may be entitled to financial compensation. When you file a fault-based claim against a negligent driver, their insurance company will compensate for any economic or non-economic damages you suffered. Some common compensable damages include:
The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police will only report to the scene of an accident if an injury is reported. That’s why the first thing you should do if you witness or are in an accident is to call 911 to report the accident and request medical assistance. If you suffer injury in an accident, no matter how seemingly insignificant the damage, have yourself checked by a medical professional. Injuries from car accidents can be devastating and won’t always present themselves outwardly.
Also, while you’re at the scene, be sure to exchange information with the at-fault driver, gather photographic or video evidence of the accident, and get the accounts of any present witnesses. These pieces of evidence can make all the difference down the line. Once you’ve had yourself medically examined and ensured the safety of others present, contact one of our car accident injury attorneys for legal guidance.
Unfortunately, auto insurance companies may refuse to accept liability even when their policyholder committed an error that resulted in an accident. Insurance companies may try to deny your claim or attempt to shift some of the blame on you to avoid a payout. That’s where our skilled litigation attorneys can help! Don’t let a negligent driver’s insurance company convince you to accept anything less than your rightful compensation.
