Being involved in a car accident can be a frightening, stressful ordeal, even if you escape major injuries. If the crash was caused by another driver’s negligence, navigating fault and legal liability adds further difficulty.
Fortunately, Nevada adheres to consistent standards for assigning blame in auto collisions to guide injury claims and lawsuits. The state follows a modified comparative negligence system to determine responsibility for the accident. Based on this system, a victim in a car accident can only recover damages if their percentage of fault is less than 50%.
Nevada uses facts of the collision, such as applicable traffic laws, physical evidence, and witness statements, to determine the percentage of fault for each party.
If you were involved in a car accident, contact Kidwell & Gallagher, where a car accident attorney will help you navigate the laws governing accident fault and liability. We fight for maximum compensation for clients injured or suffering property loss due to negligent motorists.
Nevada is a “comparative negligence” state when determining accident responsibility. This means that more than one driver can share fault based on contributing factors judges and claims adjusters weigh. However, the driver deemed most negligent will owe the other collision victims compensation.
Key laws include:
In auto accident lawsuits, car accident attorneys will have to prove:
Complex cases can lead judges or juries to assign percentage-based fault. But arguing legal liability and proving actual damages is the surest path to maximum compensation in a car accident injury claim. Relying on an experienced Reno attorney levels the playing field against aggressive insurance defense tactics.
