Even if you think that you are partially responsible for an accident, you should speak with a Las Vegas car accident lawyer from Cloward Trial Lawyers. You may not be liable for your accident. Even if you do share partial liability for a collision, you could still receive compensation for your damages.
Many car accidents happen when drivers fail to watch the road attentively and commit other negligent acts while behind the wheel. Since Nevada is a fault-based state when it comes to car accidents, accident victims could file a personal injury claim directly with the at-fault driver’s motor vehicle insurance company.
Moreover, if the accident victim decides to file a lawsuit in the Nevada court system, they could name the at-fault driver as a defendant in the lawsuit. However, even in that situation, the at-fault driver’s insurance company will step into the at-fault driver’s shoes, so to speak, and supply the necessary motor vehicle coverage – up to the available insurance policy limits.
One common cause of accidents in the Las Vegas region is road rule violations by reckless drivers. When drivers fail to use their turn signals when making a turn or switching lanes, exceed the posted speed limits, or fail to yield the right-of-way to other vehicles, cyclists, and pedestrians at the appropriate times, they can cause accidents that leave others injured or dead.
In addition to violating Nevada rules of the road, some people drive vehicles while fatigued. When a driver becomes tired, they may lose their ability to concentrate on the road, negligently colliding with another vehicle or pedestrian. Similarly, some fatigued drivers fall asleep at the wheel, losing control of their vehicle and causing a collision – or a series of collisions – depending on the circumstances.
Next, some drivers negligently cause car accidents when they operate their vehicles while intoxicated. A police officer could arrest a driver for driving under the influence, or DUI, if they determine the driver has a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08 percent or higher.
If a driver sustains a criminal arrest for DUI, their case may go to trial, or they may ultimately plead guilty to DUI. When that happens, a judge could sentence them to various penalties, including monetary fines, jail time, or probation. The Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles might also suspend their driver’s license for a number of weeks. In addition to incurring criminal penalties for a DUI conviction, a drunk driver who causes a car accident may have to pay civil damages through their insurance company if the accident leads to injuries.
Finally, some car accidents happen when drivers become distracted while on the road. Electronic devices, such as cellular phones and tablets, may cause a driver to turn their attention away from the road and may prevent them from seeing an approaching vehicle or cyclist. Other potential vehicle distractions include rowdy children and passengers who engage in horseplay.
Car accident can result in a wide range of injuries, such as:
The injuries that Las Vegas car accident victims suffer are extremely case-specific. Some car crash victims will suffer far more serious injuries than others, depending upon the speeds of the vehicles involved, the type of accident that occurs, and the accident victim’s bodily movements at the time the crash occurs.
In a rear-end collision, for example, an accident victim is more likely to sustain a soft tissue whiplash injury, such as a neck or back contusion. If their head hits the steering wheel or headrest, they may sustain a traumatic head injury, such as a migraine or concussion. Moreover, if the collision is forceful, the accident victim may suffer a broken bone or fracture in the accident.
Other accident victims may suffer bruises, such as from their seatbelts – or from the vehicle’s airbag deployment during the crash. They may also sustain internal organ damage or a spinal cord injury that leads to full or partial paralysis.
If you sustain any of these injuries – or some other injury – in your accident, it is imperative that you obtain follow-up care on the same date as your accident. Otherwise, the insurance company handling your claim may become skeptical, believing that you did not sustain any injuries at all in your crash. Insurance companies have their own doctors and experts on their side. You should have them, too.
The skilled Las Vegas car accident lawyers at Cloward Trial Lawyers are here to advocate for you and help you obtain the best possible legal result in your case.

When car accident victims in Las Vegas sustain injuries, they are oftentimes unsure of where to go or what to do. One of the most important steps you can take following a car accident is to retain skilled legal representation as soon as possible.
At Cloward Trial Lawyers, we can address all of your legal questions and concerns and advocate for you every step of the way. What follows are the answers to some common questions that arise in the wake of a Las Vegas car crash.

No matter how serious your car crash – and no matter how serious your injuries – it is vital that you have a knowledgeable and experienced team of lawyers advocating for you throughout your personal injury case. In fact, insurance companies routinely take advantage of unrepresented car accident victims.
Despite what car insurance companies say in their advertisements, they are not interested in helping you and ensuring that you receive fair compensation for your injuries. Instead, these companies are only looking out for themselves and safeguarding their own interests. If you represent yourself in a car accident claim, the insurance company will try and settle your case as quickly as possible – and for as little money as possible. A skilled Las Vegas car crash lawyer can make all the difference when it comes to obtaining fair compensation for your injuries.
At Cloward Trial Lawyers, we can negotiate directly with insurance company adjusters, several times if necessary, to obtain a fair settlement offer on your behalf. If the insurance company refuses to take your case seriously or will not compensate you for certain injuries – or for your accident-related pain and suffering – we could file a personal injury lawsuit on your behalf and litigate it through the court system. If necessary, we can take your case to a civil jury trial or binding arbitration hearing and work to maximize the compensation you recover in your case.
The length of time it takes to resolve a car accident case depends upon many factors. Those factors include:
One of the best ways to streamline your case is to retain a skilled Las Vegas car accident attorney as early on in the process as possible. At Cloward Trial Lawyers, we can help you resolve your case as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Car accident attorneys typically operate on a contingency fee basis. Prior to entering an appearance in a personal injury case, the lawyer will usually ask the client to sign a contingency fee agreement. Under this agreement, the lawyer will not receive a fee if they do not recover any monetary compensation for the accident victim.
If the case settles out of court or resolves at trial or binding arbitration, the lawyer will be entitled to a fee, depending upon the total gross settlement result, jury verdict, or arbitration award.
Generally speaking, a lawyer will charge a higher contingency fee percentage if the case resolves at trial or arbitration, rather than earlier on in the process.
The amount of money that a car crash victim could recover in their personal injury claim or lawsuit varies significantly, depending upon certain factors. Those factors include:
At Cloward Trial Lawyers, our legal team will use our knowledge and experience to help you maximize your monetary recovery for all of your accident-related injuries.
Since Nevada is a fault-based state, the at-fault driver or their insurance company will be responsible for paying you monetary compensation after your car accident.
If you suffered injuries in a “phantom vehicle accident” where the responsible driver fled the accident scene, you might be able to file a first-party claim with your own insurance company. These claims are also called uninsured motorist claims.
Similarly, if the at-fault driver’s insurance coverage is insufficient to fully compensate you for all of your injuries and damages, you may be able to turn to your own insurance company for additional compensation. You can accomplish this by filing an underinsured motorist claim with your insurer.
At Cloward Trial Lawyers, our legal team will pursue all potential avenues of insurance coverage, ensuring that you receive all of the monetary compensation you deserve for your medical treatment, lost wages, and other damages.
In most instances, car accident victims will not file a personal injury claim until after they complete the majority of their medical treatment. After all, it is important that the at-fault driver’s insurance company have copies of all of your related medical treatment records and bills, so that they can compensate you for everything you went through.
In any event, car accident victims must be sure to file their claim or lawsuit within two years of the accident date. Otherwise, in almost all circumstances, the court will bar their ability to recover monetary compensation pursuant to the Nevada personal injury statute of limitations.
Anyone who has been in a serious car accident understands how jarring the experience is. Even if you feel fine after your accident, you should proceed with the greatest caution.
Car accident victims often hire an attorney from Cloward Trial Lawyers because:
