Nevada auto accident claims for out-of-state drivers

Auto accidents are nerve-wracking in general, but when people are visiting from out of state, it may become even more complicated. Different states have their own ways of handling accidents.

It is important that those involved in auto accidents who are not from the state understand the procedures for the area in which the incident occurred. There are a few key things to understand about a Nevada auto accident claim.

Contacting authorities

One of the most common things that people think to do after an auto accident is to contact the police. In the case of serious accidents, this is correct. However, for smaller accidents and fender-benders, this is not necessary in Nevada. In fact, if there are no injuries and the damage is less than $750, law officers do not have to respond. In such cases, drivers should still call 911 and file an accident report to have it on record.

Following protocol

Nevada crash laws fully detail the appropriate way to handle auto accidents. If safe and possible, the parties must move their vehicles out of the flow of traffic and assess any physical injuries. If either party sustained an injury, the other must assist. Also, both parties must exchange information. Though claimants must be especially careful to follow the rules, these are common practices that parties should follow for any accident.

Collecting evidence

Evidence is key to an accident case. For travelers, it is important to collect as much evidence as possible at the time of the incident. Some common pieces of evidence to gather include the following:

  • Driver identification and insurance information
  • Photos of the accident
  • Witness statements, if any
  • An accident report (if applicable)

In the case that either party receives severe injuries, it may not be feasible to get all of the evidence immediately. However, parties should work to get as much evidence as possible as soon as they can.

By keeping these things in mind, out-of-state drivers can build solid accident claims. It may also be beneficial to hire a local Nevada attorney to help get the most compensation possible for the claim.
