Nevada is a top ten state for car accidents in America. Every year Nevada sees around 50,000 car injuries in a calendar year. This translates to a rate of nearly 30,000 injuries yearly, or put another way, more than 500 injuries and 5 deaths a week. Given the proportion of Nevada’s population to this rate of car accidents, this is a serious issue. It is unfortunately not uncommon for you or someone you love to be involved or even injured in a car accident.

Car Accidents in Nevada on the Rise
Nevada is a high destination spot for many out-of-state travelers looking to explore the scenic environments and take part of the famous nightlife. Unfortunately, the high rate of people unfamiliar with the roads, coupled with the environmental hazards unique to Nevada can often lead to accidents on the road, and sometimes even tragedy.
This high rate of incident reports already leaves Nevada drivers with larger than usual insurance rates. What this also means, however, is that Nevada drivers are required by law to carry auto insurance. The minimum amount of coverage required is $15,000 per person and $30,000 per accident. However, this coverage is grossly inadequate, as most people have to purchase additional coverage from their providers for being hit by uninsured or underinsured motorists, as well as insurance coverage for medical payments. It’s also expected that insurance companies cannot penalize their customers for using this type of coverage.
Recently, the Las Vegas Metro Police announced that they will no longer be responding to fender bender accidents that don’t result in an injury. This means that Nevada drivers will need to take great care if they get into an accident and gather as much information as they can. Not all injuries will be obvious due to a surge of adrenaline from the event, making the need for an accident attorney much more urgent.
I was in a car accident and I’m not sure what to do next. Do I need a lawyer?
Because of the complexities involved in a car accident report, it is never wise to either take an immediate settlement from the at fault driver, nor should you needlessly attempt any litigation without expert help. The David Boehrer Law Firm can be the help that can get you the compensation that is rightfully yours that could otherwise get away from you.
How much do lawyers cost?
The David Boehrer Law Firm operates under a contingency fee basis. That means that we only collect a fee from you if we are able to get a settlement. While car accident cases can lead to a court appearance in some cases, we aim to get you the highest possible compensation out of court first. You need only invest a phone call so that we can hear your story as soon as possible.
I was riding a bike when a car struck me. Is this the same as a car accident?
Car accidents are defined by whether the incident features at least one motor vehicle that isn’t an oversized truck or otherwise. These incidents can include bicycles, pedestrians, or other cars, but are considered a car accident by nature. Being involved in an accident in which you are injured as a bicyclist or pedestrian brings about a special set of circumstances that requires expert attention, which we are able to provide.
Time Is Important
Car accidents have many different variables, which can include DUI’s, the environment, and damage to yourself and/or your property. The David Boehrer Law Firm has a history of helping car accident victims of all varieties on a daily basis, and you can be confident that we will work with you to help figure out your best options.
