In Nevada, it is against the law to operate a motor vehicle without car insurance and there are serious consequences for a failure to purchase coverage, such as license suspension. However, despite the repercussions, many drivers willingly choose to ignore this requirement. If you were recently involved in a car accident caused by an uninsured or underinsured driver and suffered, you may be wondering how you will be able to obtain compensation to cover medical bills, loss of income, as well as pain and suffering.
At Maddox, Isaacson & Cisneros, LLP, we understand what it takes to help you pursue the compensation and justice you deserve. With more than nine decades of collective experience, our Las Vegas personal injury lawyers can review your case, determine all of your legal options, and negotiate with insurance providers while you recover from your injuries.
In Nevada, auto insurance policies often include uninsured motorist coverage which protects you in the event of a collision with an uninsured driver. In most cases, uninsured motorist coverage only covers injuries and not property damages. However, it will cover reasonable and necessary medical expenses, lost wages, and general damages.
It is important to understand that you will be asking your own insurance company to cover the medical expenses and damages incurred as a result of the accident. This means that the insurance company will attempt to find any way to reduce your claim, or perhaps deny your claim altogether. Having an experienced attorney on your side can help you ensure that you get the most reasonable amount possible.
Our Las Vegas personal injury attorneys possess an extensive knowledge of Nevada driving laws to help you navigate through the complexities of your case. Do not hesitate to get the help you need to make the best recovery possible.
