Compensation For People Injured In Car Accidents
Car accidents often result in debilitating physical and emotional trauma. However, insurance representatives are typically more focused on finding excuses to reduce the size of your settlement check than helping you recover. This is why you need an experienced personal injury attorney tapped into a network of medical experts to handle your claim.
Tapping Into A Network Of Experts To Help You
Should you require it, I can refer you to qualified medical specialists who can not only help you recover but who also understand legal standards in determining causation for every type of traumatic injury. We can help you process the claim through your health insurance and provide you more choices instead of simply signing enforceable liens to pay the medical provider. I can also refer you to autobody shops that properly assess the property damage to your vehicle should the at-fault driver’s insurance company fail to adequately compensate you. In certain cases, I can have an accident reconstructionist check the black boxes of the cars involved. These devices record information related to traffic collisions and can help prove the other driver was at fault.
Most importantly, when it comes to negotiating with an adjuster, I have the experience to maximize your claim. I have not only prosecuted but also defended multimillion-dollar claims over the course of my career. This means I have the knowledge to anticipate the insurance company’s next move. I also have the expertise to go to trial if it becomes necessary.
Accidents Involving Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM)
In Nevada, you are only entitled to UM/UIM coverage against a legally responsible driver, so there is no UM/UIM coverage if the adverse driver is not at fault. In addition, you are only entitled to damages exceeding the at-fault driver’s liability limits in Nevada. In other words, if an inexperienced personal injury attorney settles the claim against the underinsured driver for less than the limit of his or her liability policy, the UM/UIM coverage will not cover the gap between that settlement amount and that driver’s policy limit (costing you money the insurer will offset).
I will negotiate the claim with your own insurance company so that you can maximize your benefits regardless of the circumstance.
MedPay Coverage By The Injured Victim’s Own Insurance
Nevada also requires Medical Payments coverage (MedPay) of at least $1,000 to be offered in writing when a driver purchases passenger vehicle liability insurance. This type of insurance pays medical expenses for the insured driver, and can cover the injured passengers in the vehicle, regardless of who caused the accident or was at fault. There is also generally no deductible in contrast to health insurance.
Like UM/UIM coverage, MedPay usually follows the insured and family members who reside with the insured and covers any accident involving a motor vehicle (i.e., pedestrian, public transport, another vehicle, etc.).
