Las Vegas, NV Car Accidents Take a Heavy Toll

According to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD), 19,891 accidents occurred on Las Vegas roads in just one recent year, injuring 11,071 victims and taking the lives of 152 more. On average, 55 car accidents happen every day in Vegas. Most result from someone’s negligent or reckless actions. Better driving would prevent almost all of them.

You're never far from a recent car accident anywhere in Las Vegas, from the Strip to the Summerlin suburbs. But like many cities, some areas are more dangerous than others because of trip volume, traffic patterns, and road conditions.

As a tourism, convention, and business-meeting destination, Las Vegas also gets thousands of additional drivers who don’t know where they’re going or might find our city’s attractions distracting. Many such drivers cause accidents while visiting Las Vegas. They may have crashed into you while driving rental vehicles or carrying out-of-state insurance policies, which could further complicate your claim and require our Las Vegas car accident lawyers to sort it out for you.

Data from the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) reflects that high crash-risk intersections and roads in Las Vegas include:

  • Sahara Avenue and Decatur Boulevard
  • Tropicana Avenue and Rainbow Boulevard
  • Flamingo Road and Rainbow Boulevard
  • Flamingo Road and Decatur Boulevard
  • Charleston Boulevard and Rainbow Boulevard
  • Charleston Boulevard and Decatur Boulevard
  • Tropicana Avenue and Decatur Boulevard
  • Spring Mountain Road and Rainbow Boulevard
  • Sahara Avenue and Maryland Parkway
  • Interstate 15 (I-15)
  • Las Vegas Boulevard

No matter where in Las Vegas you or a loved one got into a car accident, however, you deserve skilled legal representation in your corner. Contact Dolman Law Group Accident Injury Lawyers, PA, today to learn about your rights. 

What Compensation Can You Obtain for Car Accidents in Las Vegas?

Las Vegas car accident victims and families of those killed in crashes have significant rights under Nevada law. Through lawsuits, insurance claims, or other legal actions, they can obtain compensation from individuals, businesses, or entities at fault for a crash and others who must answer for the at-fault parties’ conduct.

At Dolman Law Group Accident Injury Lawyers, PA, we pursue the maximum compensation available from liable parties for our clients. 

Liability for a Las Vegas Car Accident

Anyone who causes a crash through their careless, reckless, or intentional conduct can owe damages to the victims of a Las Vegas car accident. Sometimes, just one individual, business, or entity is liable to the victims. But in many cases, multiple parties must pay for the harm the crash caused. 

The Dolman Law Group Accident Injury Lawyers, PA team digs into the details of a car accident that injured our client to identify all liable parties. We aim to hold all of them accountable for harming our clients. And we understand that various parties could owe damages in any car accident case.

Our review of the evidence could reveal that you can demand compensation from, for example: 

  • A motorist who caused the car accident through careless actions like distracted driving or speeding. 
  • A business that employed an at-fault motorist who crashed a work vehicle. 
  • A local government entity responsible for unreasonably hazardous road conditions. 
  • A private property owner who failed to maintain safe roads or parking areas. 
  • The manufacturer of defective auto parts that played a role in causing the crash. 

These are just a few examples. You can only reliably know who might have liability for your Las Vegas car accident injuries once an experienced lawyer has reviewed your case. Contact Dolman Law Group Accident Injury Lawyers, PA, today to begin learning about liability for the crash that injured you or your loved one.

Potential Damages for a Las Vegas Car Accident

Injured victims of Las Vegas car accidents can claim compensation for the physical, emotional, and financial harm they suffered.

Under Nevada law, a lawsuit or insurance claim might seek payment for: 

  • Past and future medical expenses to treat car accident injuries; 
  • The cost of repairing or replacing a damaged vehicle or other personal property; 
  • Other unplanned expenditures directly resulting from the accident or injuries; 
  • Loss of pay and benefits from missing work while healing; 
  • Future lost earnings and opportunities due to a disability caused by the accident; 
  • Physical pain and emotional suffering
  • Loss of independence; 
  • Diminished quality of life; 
  • Scarring, disfigurement, or loss of bodily function. 

The law may also entitle a victim to seek punitive damages to punish the at-fault party’s extreme or malicious conduct or statutory damages arising from violating a specific law. 

The types and amounts of compensation you could receive in a Las Vegas car accident case depend on factors like the strength of the evidence, the skill of your lawyer, and the financial resources of the liable parties.

At Dolman Law Group Accident Injury Lawyers, PA, we pursue strategies to maximize your financial recovery. And as noted above, we have an impressive track record of getting results for injured crash victims.

Compensation for a Fatal Las Vegas Car Accident

If a car accident victim succumbs to crash-related injuries, the victim's heirs under Nevada law may have the right to seek compensation for their tragic loss through a wrongful death lawsuit and a related suit called a survival action.

By pursuing those legal actions, the heirs and the victim’s estate could recover compensation that includes payment for: 

  • Their grief or sorrow;
  • Loss of the deceased victim’s income or financial support;
  • Loss of the deceased victim’s companionship, society, comfort, and consortium;
  • The deceased victim’s pain, suffering, or disfigurement before death;
  • Medical and other accident-related expenses the deceased victim incurred;
  • Funeral and burial expenses.

At Dolman Law Group Accident Injury Lawyers, PA, we recognize that monetary damages can never compensate for a tragic loss. But they can provide crucial financial support during this difficult time.

Tips for Protecting Your Rights After a Las Vegas Car Accident

Your actions after suffering losses in a Las Vegas car accident can influence the chances of receiving fair compensation. Following the tips below can protect your legal rights and financial future.

Seek Immediate Medical Attention

Always seek medical attention after any car accident in Las Vegas, even if you think you have avoided severe injuries. Minor aches and pains you feel now could indicate major trauma that needs immediate care. To safeguard your health and well-being, let a doctor check you over right away. 

Getting care also protects you legally. Medical records of your injuries can serve as valuable evidence in a claim for damages. And by seeking care, you avoid being accused of not taking reasonable care of yourself.   

Hire a Car Accident Lawyer

Once you've addressed your immediate medical needs, ask an experienced Las Vegas car accident lawyer about handling your case.

Dolman Law Group Accident Injury Lawyers, PA, offer free consultations for crash victims and their loved ones. There’s no risk in consulting our lawyers; you will obtain significant benefits by doing so. 

Hiring a lawyer ensures you always meet the legal deadlines in your Las Vegas car accident case. Under Nevada’s statute of limitations for car accident claims, you have at most two years from the date of the crash and potentially as little as a few months to take legal action. If you miss that window, you could lose your rights. A lawyer can take the action necessary to preserve your claim before it expires. 

Do Not Settle Without Consulting a Lawyer

An at-fault party or insurance company may offer to settle with you before you’ve had the chance to hire a lawyer. Do not agree to any proposal they make or sign anything they send you without consulting an attorney. Settlement offers made directly to crash victims like you rarely pay you fair compensation, and if you accept them, you could sacrifice your right to receive the amount you need to pay your bills and rebuild after the accident.

Our experienced car accident lawyers can respond to the proposal on your behalf and, in most cases, negotiate a far more favorable payment.
