What to Do If You’re Involved in a Car Accident

What to Do At the Scene of the Car Accident

Always call the police and if possible, wait for them to arrive. However, the police in Nevada often are unable to respond to car accidents. Therefore, you may need to gather some of the critical information that an officer of the law would gather including:

  • Take photographs of the vehicles especially documenting the location where the vehicles came to rest following the accident
  • Obtain the insurance information of the other driver
  • Photograph the other driver’s license
  • Photograph the other driver’s license plate
  • Exchange name, phone and address
  • Take a photo of the other driver

Always remain calm and courteous as your words and actions may be relived in Court.

Keep On Top of the Insurance Claims Process

Injured victims in desperate circumstances should not rely on verbal statements by insurance companies. The insurance company is not on your side.  If the insurance company promises to pay medical expenses, they may later attempt to pay only what they deem reasonable and not your actual bill. Injured victims also need rental cars and prompt service. Often, the insurance company simply ignores your claim.  Fortunately Nevada is a state that adheres to the Unfair Practices in Settling Claims Act found at NRS 686A.130. This law prohibits delays in paying claims and unreasonable conduct by insurance companies. However, without legal counsel, this law is often violated.

In summary, insurance companies are required:

  • Not to misrepresent facts
  • To act promptly, investigate, determine fault,
  • Pay claims promptly
  • Not to force unnecessary litigation or appeals
  • Not to use of repetitive forms, to settle claims fairly and timely.

Unfortunately, this law is repeatedly violated by insurance companies. Retain experienced counsel to protect your right. https://www.leg.state.nv.us/nrs/NRS-686A.html#NRS686ASec020

Recent Rise In Car Accident Fatalities

National Statistics: Sadly, 2015 saw the largest percentage rise in auto accident fatalities in the past 50 years, according to the National Safety Council.  In 2015, 38,300 people were killed on U.S. roads, and 4.4 million were seriously injured.   http://www.iihs.org/iihs/topics/t/general-statistics/fatalityfacts/state-by-state-overview These numbers are startling.

Nevada Statistics: In Nevada, 2015 marked the fourth straight year in which car accident fatalities increased.  Tragically, 321 people were killed on Nevada roadways in 2015.

Drunk Driving is an Epidemic

Every 2-hours, three people are killed in alcohol-related highway crashes in the United States. http://www.rita.dot.gov/bts/sites/rita.dot.gov.bts/files/publications/by_the_numbers/drunk_driving/index.html   The consequences of drinking and driving are arrests, property damage, injuries, and thousands of deaths each year. An estimated 4 million U.S. adults reported driving under the influence of alcohol at least once in 2010.

In 2010, alcohol was involved in 2,020 (or 47.2 percent) of pedestrian fatalities, 11,087 (or 39.9 percent) of vehicle occupant fatalities, 209 (or 33.8 percent) of pedal cyclist fatalities (as shown in Figure 2). Pedestrians are more vulnerable than highway vehicle occupants. http://www.nhtsa.gov/NCSA
