How Does a Las Vegas Personal Injury Claim Work?
It can be a confusing time when you are in an accident or injured. The first thing to understand is that you will need to report the accident or injury so there is a record of it.
- Report the accident as soon as it happens.
- Stay at the scene to collect information from the involved parties that will be relevant later. This includes an insurance card and other information.
- Take photos of any damage, to yourself or to property.
- Obtain copies of police reports, work incident reports, medical records, and any other relevant information.
In Nevada, you have two years after the date of the injury to file a claim. But in most cases, you should be contacting an attorney right away to start the process. There are situations where injuries show up later or may not have seemed major at the time which does cause a delay in certain situations. But, again, in most cases, it’s smart to make an immediate move and have an attorney involved. The call to discuss the situation is free and confidential.
An attorney can then handle the paperwork required to file a claim to initiate the lawsuit. This is beneficial for several reasons, including the accuracy and timeliness of each step of the process. Attorneys that have been through the process many times understand how it all works and will give you your best shot at success.
The responsible party will need to be found negligent in many personal injury cases. This will require you to prove that the defendant was negligent in their actions, which led to the accident or injury. Any information gathered at the time of the incident will be helpful at this point. An attorney can also help greatly once the case reaches this stage.
