The Reno auto accident lawyers at Leverty & Associates Law Chtd. are experienced at handling car and other motor vehicle accident claims and cases. Determining who was at fault in an auto accident means figuring out who was negligent, and thus responsible for causing the accident. Failure to use reasonable care while operating an automobile constitutes negligence. A finding of negligence can be found for:
Failure to obey traffic signs or signals
Talking on a cell phone while driving
Texting while driving
Failure to follow the speed limit
Driving a car under the influence of alcohol or drugs
Failure to signal when turning
Of course, there are many other reasons that an accident can occur, and if you were injured in an employer vehicle, you may also be eligible for worker’s compensation.
While car crashes comprise a significant portion of injury claims, it would be wrong to think that they are always simple to resolve. They often involve extremely complex issues and complicated insurance issues, which is what the lawyers at Leverty & Associates Law Chtd. are proficient in.
If you have been injured in a car, truck, tractor trailer, motorcycle or other motor vehicle accident as a driver, passenger, bicyclist or pedestrian, and it was the result of someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to recover monetary damages for pain and suffering, payment or reimbursement of reasonable medical expenses incurred or which will be incurred in the future, and lost wages.
One of the most important things you should remember when you have been involved in an accident is to speak to an attorney as soon as possible. To protect your rights, you will need legal advice before you speak to the insurance company.
