Personal Injury Lawyers in Nevada - Canadians Involved in Nevada Car Accidents

Nevada is known for some of the United States’ most beautiful tourist spots, sports teams, and desert attractions. Let’s not forget that Nevada is home to Las Vegas, a world renowned “betting” destination with a very active night life.

While Las Vegas is a city that you’ve got to visit at least once, Nevada has far more to offer than just those two and a half miles of non-stop entertainment. Nevada has beautiful natural attractions, small towns, and scenic drives as well.

The engineering marvel that is the Hoover Dam is just a 45-minute drive from Vegas. Beautiful Lake Tahoe, Lake Mead National Recreation Area, and Valley of Fire State Park are three beautiful parks that you should definitely check out!

Nevada is bordered by Oregon, Idaho, California, and Arizona. This makes it a great place to have a car and road trip to the bordering states as well on your trip.

Unfortunately, while adventuring across Nevada, some snowbirds will be injured in a Nevada car accident.  They will need to consult with a personal injury lawyer.

What Should You Do If You’re Involved in A Nevada Car Accident

Your top priority is always the health and safety of you and your family. Be sure to seek out medical attention immediately.

  • Make sure the police are contacted.
  • If possible, take a picture of the other driver’s licence and insurance, and a picture of the licence plate.
  • Call your insurance company and report the accident.
  • Contact the Snowbird Helpline as soon as possible for advice.

Nevada Car Accidents

Nevada is a magnet for Snowbirds and tourists from all over the world. If you are involved in a Nevada car accident, there are some things you need to know. In all likelihood the driver who caused the accident has little to no insurance coverage. For example, the minimum state insurance is:

  • $25,000 for injury or death of one person in an accident
  • $50,000 for injury or death of two or more people in an accident
  • $20,000 for property damage in an accident 

Nevada is Modified Comparative Fault state when it comes to car accidents. This means in order to bring an action you must be less then 51% responsible for the accident.  In addition it follows Modified joint and several liability provisions.  Where the plaintiff is not at fault, joint and several liability applies.  In cases where a plaintiff is comparatively negligent several liability applies (of course there are exceptions).  Please note in most instances passengers in a vehicle are in no way responsible for an accident.  

If you are involved in a Nevada, you have two (2) years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit for injuries sustained in the accident. If you do not file a lawsuit within this time period, you will likely be barred from suing for damages related to the accident.

Cross-border car accidents are very complicated since most travellers have their own car insurance from their respective state or province. That’s where Snowbird Accidents comes in!
