Exchange information with other drivers involved and gather evidence, such as photographs and witness statements.

    Is Nevada a fault or no-fault state for car accidents?

    In Nevada, drivers are required to carry liability insurance with minimum coverage limits of $25,000 for bodily injury or death per person, $50,000 for bodily injury or death per accident, and $20,000 for property damage per accident. Additional coverage options are available for comprehensive and collision insurance.

    In Nevada, the statute of limitations for filing a car accident lawsuit is two years from the date of the accident. It's essential to consult with a personal injury attorney promptly to ensure compliance with this deadline and preserve your legal rights.

    Can I recover damages if I'm partially at fault for a car accident in Nevada?

    Yes, Nevada follows a comparative negligence rule, allowing injured parties to recover damages even if they are partially at fault for the accident. However, the amount of compensation awarded may be reduced based on the percentage of fault assigned to each party involved.
