Getting answers following a car accident

Drivers in Nevada can take every safety precaution possible, but they cannot control the actions of other drivers. This means that many people across the state will be involved in a car accident sooner or later. The following are some tips on how a person should proceed following a car crash, particularly if they want to pursue a personal injury lawsuit.

First, it is important to understand that there is a "statute of limitations" that applies to car accident cases. A statute of limitations is the time period in which a person is able to file a lawsuit. If a person misses this window, they will be unable to pursue a lawsuit even if they would have had a valid claim. Therefore, a person should not wait too long to seek legal assistance with regards to their car accident claim. Another good reason to seek the advice of an attorney as soon as is feasible is to ensure that witness accounts are obtained and that other important pieces of evidence are not lost.

If a person is injured in a car accident, it is important that they seek medical help. Not only do they need to regain their health following an auto accident, but they may need to procure medical records in order to establish that their injuries were caused by the crash and to determine the amount of damages to pursue.

In addition, when a person is in a car crash, the responsible party's insurance company may ask the victim to provide them with a statement regarding the accident. People should avoid giving such statements. This is because the insurer may be trying to find a way to say the victim was the party at fault in the accident.

Also, the responsible party's insurance company may offer the victim a settlement. While this may seem good, in fact the insurance company is looking out for their bottom line, not the victim's well-being. Oftentimes the amount offered is not enough to cover the victim's damages.

For all these reasons, it is important to contact an attorney when you are involved in a car crash. At our firm, we aim to provide our clients with the information they need in relation to their specific situations. Doing so ensures that our clients understand their options, so they can make informed decisions moving forward.
