Auto Accidents FAQ

Should I Move My Car After An Auto Accident?

The Nevada Department of Transportation recommends that people involved in an auto accident clear their vehicles from the road to avoid another crash. However, police investigators may want to see the vehicle positions after the incident for their report.

You can take pictures or videos of the scene before moving your car. That way, the police and your lawyer can have something to refer to later.

All of that is assuming you can move. If you are injured or in pain, it is better to wait for help.

What Happens If I’m Partly To Blame For The Accident?

Nevada is a comparative negligence state. You can claim compensation as long as you carry less than 50% of the blame. The amount is directly impacted by your share of responsibility for the accident.

Do I Need Medical Attention Even If I Do Not Feel Hurt?

Not all injuries are apparent after an auto accident. Adrenaline would prevent you from feeling pain to some extent. You should always seek immediate medical attention.

Getting checked by medical professionals also creates an official document of your injuries right after the crash, which can later be used for your claim.

Should I Call The Police?

Although you are not legally required to do so, calling the police is a good idea to ensure a report is filed. Always call the police if:

  • The vehicles involved are blocking the normal flow of traffic.
  • There is damage to other properties like cars, buildings, and public spaces.
  • Any person suffered an injury during the accident.
  • There is a chance that one or more vehicles could catch fire.
Who Is Liable For My Injuries?

The party who caused the accident is liable for the injuries you sustained. Even if you are a passenger, you can file a lawsuit against the other driver.

There are cases where other factors contribute to the accident. For example, if the airbags fail to deploy, the manufacturer carries liability.

Your auto accident lawyer will help determine the liable parties by analyzing the evidence and reports of the accident.

What If The Other Driver Denies Responsibility?

The other driver can deny responsibility for the accident, and it happens often. In this case, the burden of proof shifts onto you, and their insurance company will not entertain a settlement until you prove the other driver’s culpability.

Your auto accident attorney can organize and present your proof. That starts with analyzing the available evidence to reconstruct the timeline of the accident.

Should I Take The Settlement Offer of the Insurance Company?

The first offer from insurance companies is always low. Their goal is to get this over with as fast as possible while minimizing their cost. It is all about the money. Do not agree to any offer without:

  1. Getting a medical checkup to see if you have lingering injuries because of the accident.
  2. Talking to a legal representative to discuss your case.

After an auto accident, the insurance company of the other driver will likely reach out to you with an offer. You can talk to them but try not to answer too many questions until you consult with an attorney.
