A Guide To Filing A Car Insurance Claim

Guide to filing a car insurance claim
Knowing what to do when you need to file an auto insurance claim can help you avoid some of the headaches and red tape involved in the process.

Liability car insurance is required in most states and for good reason. If you are found at fault for a car accident, you are responsible for the costs to repair or replace any damaged property as well as cover the medical expenses of the other driver and passengers. Without car insurance, you could be liable for tens to even hundreds of thousands of dollars in personal injury and property damage.

If the other party is at fault, filing a car insurance claim is still important. Your vehicle may also be damaged, and you may need medical attention. You will also need to consider factors like needing a rental car while your car is being repaired or replaced or considering how much your insurance policy covers in damages.

Knowing what to do when you need to file an auto insurance claim can help you avoid some of the headaches and red tape involved in the process. It can also help you get a better value for your insurance.  Keep in mind that every insurance company handles its claim process slightly differently, but many of the steps are similar.

What Is A Car Insurance Claim?

A car insurance claim is a request for financial compensation for damages and injuries sustained in an auto accident. Insurance claims cover the expenses after a car accident. If you are liable, claims cover for representation or intervention on your behalf.

After you file the appropriate paperwork, the insurance company usually sends an insurance adjuster to investigate your claim. If the claim is validated and approved, you will receive the financial compensation needed to cover your losses.

To understand how to file a car insurance claim, you must first know the types of coverage offered by most insurance companies.

Types of Car Insurance

There are several types of auto insurance coverage that address different incidents. You can only file a claim if you have coverage for that specific incident in question. Common coverages include:

  • Liability Insurance
    This type of coverage covers the damage to an individual from accidents where you are found at fault. Liability insurance covers bodily injury (BI), physical harm to the other driver or passengers, and property damage (PD), such as a vehicle or structural damage to a building. 49 out of 50 states require some form of liability insurance. New Hampshire is the only state that does not require auto liability insurance.
  • Medical Payments Coverage (MedPay)
    Medical costs can be expensive, especially after a serious accident. Medical payments coverage can help pay those medical costs related to the car accident, regardless of who is at fault.
  • Comprehensive Insurance
    Comprehensive insurance covers damage from events outside the driver’s control, such as impact with an animal or a tree branch hitting your windshield. It can add an extra level of coverage in the instance of an accident involving another vehicle.
  • Collision Insurance
    Collision insurance covers the damage from accidents while driving regardless of who was at fault. Examples of covered incidents may be crashing into another car or hitting a tree. It may help repair or replace the vehicle covered by the policy.
  • Uninsured Motorist Coverage
    Uninsured motorist insurance is similar to liability insurance but covers accidents involving an at-fault, uninsured driver. Typically, when another driver is at fault for your accident, you file a claim with their insurance provider. However, if that driver is uninsured, uninsured motorist coverage would cover any injuries and property damage you sustained due to the accident.

    This type of insurance may also cover hit-and-run accidents. It is most often paired with underinsured motorist coverage.

  • Underinsured Motorist Coverage
    Like uninsured motorist insurance, underinsured motorist coverage is similar to liability insurance, except it covers drivers who are at fault and underinsured. In other words, the at-fault driver’s insurance policy does not entirely cover your expenses. Your underinsured motorist insurance would pay for the remaining damage in this case.
  • Rental Reimbursement Coverage
    Rental reimbursement coverage helps pay for a rental car while your car is being repaired after a car accident. Check with your insurance policy to confirm your coverage limits. Typically, rental reimbursement coverage pays up to a certain dollar amount per day for a set amount of time.
  • Full Coverage
    While there is no standard definition for full coverage car insurance, it typically refers to a combination of the above insurance policies. The exact coverage is customized to the insured’s needs and may include liability insurance, collision insurance, and comprehensive car insurance.

    Some people use comprehensive car insurance and full coverage car insurance interchangeably, but these are not the same. Though a “full coverage” policy does not exist, it is more than comprehensive car insurance.

Steps To File An Auto Insurance Claim

  1. Get to safety and contact the police.
    If damages or injuries result from a car accident, the first thing to do is take care of yourself and everyone around you. Make sure the scene is safe before doing anything else.

    Once you are safe, you should call the police. In Nevada, the law requires you to notify the police about any car accident that causes physical injuries, death, or property damage. Not only is it essential to do so in the case of a serious accident, but a police officer can help you begin the claims process by generating a police report that can be used as part of your claim.

    In a worst-case scenario, a police officer can be there to ensure your safety should the other party become difficult. An officer can also make sure ambulances or emergency services are there to handle any injuries or dangerous conditions, such as fuel leaks or a burning car, at the scene.

  2. File a police report.
    A police report will paint a picture of what happened in the accident and include information to make the insurance claim process much more manageable. If you did not call the police following your accident, you might still be able to go to a local police station to file a report.
  3. Gather relevant information and documentation.
    Filing your claim will be easier if you take the time to gather information at the scene of the accident. First, collect the relevant information from the other driver– name, phone number, license plate, vehicle model and make, insurance company, and policy number. Be sure to gather the contact information, including names, of any witnesses to the accident so your claims adjuster can speak to them if necessary.

    You should also take note of any traffic cameras or store security cameras in the area. Even in neighborhoods, many people now have doorbells that take videos, which can help determine the cause and who is at fault for your accident.

    Record all accident details, no matter how minor, including photos and videos of damage and the accident scene. Many insurance companies now have apps that allow you to take and upload pictures and videos to begin the claims process. Be sure to capture all angles so that the insurance company can see the full extent of the damage done to your property or car.

    Besides evidence of damage sustained during the car accident, take photos and record any injuries from the collision, no matter how small. This includes any injuries your passengers may have suffered.

    Include everything you can remember about what happened immediately before, during, and after the accident. While doing this, do not apologize or accept fault for the accident, and especially do not agree to settle the matter privately. It may affect your ability to file a claim and get approved.

  4. Call your insurance company.
    Once you are safely at home or in a safe place, check your insurance coverage. If you do not have a copy of it in your files, you may be able to access it via your insurance company’s mobile app or website. You will need your policy number to verify your coverage and deductibles. With your policy in front of you, you can start filing your claim if you haven’t already.

    Calling your insurance company will officially initiate the claims process. When you reach your insurer, explain what happened in as much detail as possible. This is where the relevant information and documentation come in handy.

    In the case of an auto accident, your insurance company will try to determine who is at fault. Even if you believe you are not at fault, you should still call your insurer to begin a claim. Ask your agent how to proceed, and any necessary steps you need to take to ensure your claim is processed appropriately. Your agent may ask for a “proof of loss” form, as well as copies of any documentation related to the accident, such as the police report, medical bills, and auto repair bills.

    If you choose to file a third-party claim, that means you choose to file a claim with the other driver’s insurance. The other party’s insurance will require the same information as your own insurance company to determine who is at fault. With this option, you may want to contact an experienced car accident attorney before proceeding.

  5. Don’t wait to file your claim.
    You should file your claim as soon as possible. Every state has different laws regarding how long you have to file your claim, so you should familiarize yourself with these laws. Nevada’s statute of limitations for a car accident claim is two years, whether filed through your insurance or a personal injury attorney.
  6. Work with your claims adjuster.
    A claims adjuster is the person your insurance company assigned to handle your accident claim. The adjuster handles discussions with repair shops, other insurance companies, witnesses, and any other involved parties. They will also investigate your accident, review the estimates for your vehicle repairs, and get your claim settled.

    The claims professional will also review any potential personal injury claims, handle the needed payments, and approve the costs for repairs. For this reason, be sure to provide the adjuster with all relevant information to make sure your claim moves quickly and avoids delays. The more information you provide, the easier it is for the adjuster to help you.

    If there is any part of the process you do not understand, your claims professional should be able to answer your questions. Do not be afraid to ask for an explanation of the process.

    Remember that while the claims adjuster may want you satisfied with how they handle your claim, their first responsibility is to the insurance company. They will want to keep expenses as low as possible. You may consider hiring a car accident lawyer to make sure you get full compensation from your insurance or the at-fault party’s insurance company.

  7. Get your car repaired.
    Depending on your insurance company, the claims adjuster may provide you with several suggestions for auto repair shops. If not, you can usually choose which repair shop you would like to use. When you take your car to the repair shop, be sure to get an estimate and give the information to your claims adjuster. An estimate can also help determine the amount of financial compensation you receive after your claim is processed.

    Suppose you’re in an auto accident, your vehicle is totaled, and you have comprehensive or collision coverage. In that case, you will receive the value of your car pre-wreck in cash from the insurance company. The cost is usually enough to cover the cost of buying a new vehicle of the same value.

After Filing A Claim

The process of filing a car insurance claim is similar across insurance companies, but who pays for damages, coverage costs, and whether you are covered at all vary. This is why it is important to contact your car insurance provider as soon as possible after the accident. They can help you better understand the claims process and your coverage policy.

There is a possibility of your claim being denied. Sometimes, insurance companies can reject your claim based on the nature of the accident or your coverage policy. For example, if there is evidence you violated state law during the accident, your insurance provider can deny you coverage.

If you are not satisfied with your settlement offer, you can negotiate with your insurance provider. You will need all the necessary evidence to support your claim, such as medical records, bills, and police reports. The better your evidence, the more likely you are to receive higher compensation initially or after negotiation.

Insurance companies are interested in their bottom line, which is especially true of the other party’s insurer. The goal of their claims adjuster is to spend as little money as possible. Insurance companies can also make it difficult to negotiate and will use any missteps in the process of filing your claim as evidence against increasing the payout.

Consider Hiring A Car Accident Attorney

Car accidents are traumatic experiences that can have life-altering effects on their victims. The process of filing a claim can be overwhelming and seem nearly impossible after an accident. There are many steps to worry about, including gathering evidence, and you only have a limited time to file your claim.

Personal Injury Statistics In Nevada

Before we delve into the statistics of personal injuries, we should discuss what exactly constitutes a personal injury. When asked what is a personal injury, people generally think of injuries from car accidents.  Other types of personal injuries include slip and fall accidents, defective products, dog bites, or wrongful death. The common denominator is negligence.

  • Slip and fall accidents – Often caused by the business not posting the appropriate warning sign or failing to clean the area properly.
  • Defective products – Mostly commonly caused by the manufacturer not testing the product before shipping it out or not giving their employees the appropriate training.
  • Dog bites – Possibly the owner failed to leash or properly train the dog.
  • Wrongful death – Covers a wide range of possibilities from either neglect or intent.

Not all personal injuries are caused by negligence. A personal injury may also include intentional tort. An intentional tort is a fancy way of saying the injury was not caused by the negligence of a person, business, or entity, but by the intent of causing injury. According to Cornell University Legal Information Institute, an intentional tort is the result of an assault, battery, false imprisonment, trespassing, and the “intentional infliction of emotional distress.”

Personal Injury Statistics

In the state of Nevada, personal injuries happen every day. The Center for Health Data and Research reports that of the 16,571 total injury cases from 2000 to 2002, nearly 52% of injuries occurred in Clark County, approximately 18% in Washoe County, and 2.4% in Lyon County.

The Department of Industry Relations reports that for every 100 workers 3.5 people face a nonfatal personal injury within the workplace, including state and local government officials. These injuries are reported only if the person injured is required to seek medical help. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) has accounted that Nevada is higher than the national average for occupational injuries in 2019. The state reached 40 total fatal work injuries.

  • Transportation incidents were at 45%, while the U.S. average was 40%.
  • Slip and fall accidents at the workplace made up of 23% of injuries in Nevada, compared to 17%.
  • Violence and other injuries by persons or animals were made up of 15% in Nevada and 16% in the U.S.
  • 13% of injuries in Nevada were from the exposure to harmful substances or environments

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that the firearm mortality rate is 15.3 per 100,000 people with 490 deaths in the year 2019. They also report that the homicide rates are lower than it has been over the last fours, stating that homicides are at a rate of 5.5 per 100,000, compared to 7.7 in 2018, 7.6 in 2017, 7.4 in 2016, 6.6 in 2015, and 6.3 in 2014. 166 deaths were a result of homicide in 2019.

Why Burden of Proof Is Important in Personal Injury Cases

Burden of proof
The burden of proof is the guiding point of discussion within the courtroom.

From a legal standpoint, the burden of proof is the guiding point of discussion within the courtroom. It forces all party members to provide standing and supporting evidence that proves their claim. Evidence normally includes witness testimonies, documents such as photos, written work, printouts of text messages, and objects.

The burden of proof is normally assigned to the plaintiff – the party making a claim – but during a trial, the judge determines who has the burden of proof to varying parties. All claims made by each party can be questioned or countered by the opposing party to determine the truth of the claims. At the end of the trial, the judge and the jury decide whether that burden has been supported by all parties and come to a verdict.

Primary Standards of Proof in Law

There are three standards of the burden of proof that follow what the law world calls a standard of proof. A standard of proof is the level of evidence that is required to satisfy the burden of proof. The most common standards of proof are:

  • Beyond a reasonable doubt where the burdened party “must convince the jury that there is no other reasonable explanation that can come from the evidence presented at trial.” The standard of this type is that there is no question that the defendant is 100% guilty.
  • Clear and convincing evidence is less concrete than beyond a reasonable doubt. The evidence must prove that the evidence is highly likely to be true than not true.
  • Preponderance of the evidence is typically used in a civil trial and the burden of proof “is met when the party with the burden convinced the factfinder that there is a greater than 50% chance that the claim is true”

There are other standards of proof that can be used on a case-by-case basis including reasonable belief, reasonable suspicion, some evidence, substantial evidence, reasonable indications, and probable cause. These create different levels of certainty where beyond a reasonable doubt is greater than 99% and substantial evidence could be in the 60% range of certainty. It may point in a certain direction, but it is not proven.

Types of Burden of Proof

The two types of burden of proof in law are called the burden of production and the burden of persuasion.

  • The burden of production is the “party’s obligation to come forward with sufficient evidence to support a particular proposition of fact.” The burden of production is not about convincing the judge and the jury that the proposition is true, but that there is existing evidence that the proposition is true.
  • The burden of persuasion is the “obligation of a party to introduce evidence that persuades the factfinder, to requisite degree of belief, that a particular proposition of fact is true.” The burden of production’s focus is to view the facts and evidence and how it supports or debunks a proposition of fact.

The party that has the burden of proof varies from each case. Every state has different rules and requirements in court. Contact us to discuss the importance of the burden of proof and how we can help you in meeting the requirements by the court.

Zero Fatalities Nevada

Zero Fatalities Nevada
Zero Fatalities is a program set up by the Nevada Department of Transportation to promote traffic safety.

Zero Fatalities is a program set up by the Nevada Department of Transportation to promote traffic safety. “One death on Nevada roads is too many, and we are working together to reach Zero Fatalities,” said NDOT Director Susan Martinovich. The NDOT has gathered several agencies to work towards reaching the zero fatalities goal.

A few of these agencies include:

  • Nevada Department of Public Safety
    • Office of Traffic Safety
    • Nevada of Highway Patrol
  • Nevada Department of Education
  • Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles
  • Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department
  • Regional Emergency Medical Services Authority

Two committees organize regulations to make the Zero Fatalities program a reality: the Nevada Advisory Committee on Traffic Safety and the Traffic Safety and Traffic Records Coordinating Committee. These committees communicate with the Nevada and regional traffic safety agencies to establish policies, aid with safety strategies, contribute to road planning and improvement projects, and organize safety programs for safer driving across Nevada.

Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP)

The SHSP is a statewide strategy designed to prevent or reduce traffic fatalities and severe injuries on the roadways. The plan creates objectives and strategies in partnership with the federal, state, local sponsors. It is updated five years after a thorough review of the Nevada Traffic Safety Crash Facts and adjusted after collaboration with varying agencies.

The Action Plan, a plan that is adjusted yearly, supplements the SHSP. It tracks progress and places emphasis on specific strategies and how they affect the Zero Fatality goal. They follow four guiding principles that support these goals:

  1. Incorporate Equity – As plans are created, the committees pay extra attention to the more vulnerable communities in Nevada. Before they implement these plans, they ask themselves which groups would benefit from the change, what negative impacts it may have on others, what data was considered as the action plan was developed, and who is involved in this step. This is to ensure all voices from different backgrounds are heard.
  2. Prioritize Safe Speed – Nearly 30% of all traffic fatalities are because of speeding. By controlling the speed of highways, streets, and freeways, the SHSP could lessen the impact of collisions. They hope that decreasing the speed limits may provide more time for drivers to stop and increase visibility.
  3. Emphasize data and proven safety methods – The SHSP monitors scientific-based evidence to establish what programs and strategies have proven to work. The countermeasures they analyze include the Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA) Proven Safety Countermeasures and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) Countermeasures That Work.
  4. Update to the Latest Technology – Technology is constantly updating, and each new update brings Nevada closer to our goal. The SHSP establishes collaborations with technology providers, health and safety groups, and manufacturers to promote advanced safety technology.

The Structure of the SHSP

The structure of the SHSP has four key areas that branch into 13 emphasis areas. Nine of those areas are CEAs, or Critical Emphasis Areas.

The Four Key areas are

  • Safer Roads
  • Vulnerable Road Users
  • Safer Drivers and Passengers
  • Impaired Driving Prevention

Safer Roads focuses on speed control, lane departures, intersections, and work zones. These areas are integral to maintaining a safer road.

Vulnerable Road Users analyze who are more likely to be in danger on the road, including pedestrians, motorcyclists, bicyclists, and micromobility users (scooters, skateboards, etc.).

Safer Drivers and Passengers concentrates on the education of drivers. They create a curriculum and emphasize the importance of safety on the road to all drivers.

Impaired Driving Prevention tracks strategies to prevent fatalities and injuries due to driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

For more details on the Zero Fatalities program, visit their website, which provides a detailed report and plan of action on how they are turning Nevada’s streets into a safer place.

What is distracted driving?

Distracted driving while using cell phone
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2019, 3,142 people were killed in a distracted driving accident.

Distracted driving is a common cause of car accidents. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2019, 3,142 people were killed and nearly 424,000 people were injured in a distracted driving car accident. Distracted driving is when the driver’s attention is not on the road in front of them. This could mean they are

  • Texting
  • Eating
  • Reading
  • Looking at the scenery
  • Changing a song on the radio
  • Fixing the temperature controls

Not all of these are illegal, and some may even appear harmless, but they do draw the driver away from focusing on the road. Dimopoulos Injury Law specializes in distracted driving cases. We focus on our clients to ensure they receive the best care after their accident. If you or a loved one are involved in a distracted driving car accident, be sure to contact the best Las Vegas law firm in Nevada. Our excellent lawyers will help any car accident victim receive their entitled compensation. Contact Dimopoulos Injury Law to receive a free consultation.

Greatest distraction: Texting

The greatest distraction when operating a vehicle is using your cell phone. Texting while driving has become the most common cause of distracted driving car accidents. It has also become the deadliest. Using an electronic device while driving qualifies as 3 types of distractions. You lose your visual, manual, and cognitive functions. By texting or looking at your phone, you take your eyes off the road, take one or more hands off the wheel, and you take your mental focus off the act of driving.

Using your mobile device while driving is the top killer because it takes away all of the functions required to operate a vehicle. Currently, Nevada has laws against using electronic devices while driving to prevent further accidents. Remember to put your phone away or only use hands-free devices.

What to Do in a Distracted Driving Accident

When you’re in a car accident, you must be able to prove who is at fault. To do so, you must gather evidence, which includes:

  • Witness statements
  • Your statement
  • Driver statement
  • Police report
  • Photos of the accident
  • And if possible, phone records

Collecting phone records can be challenging due to privacy laws. A lawyer will normally have the means to collect that information and they would be a great help to winning your case. You don’t need to deal with the aftermath of a car accident alone. A personal injury lawyer has the ability to help you receive your entitled compensation.

Distracted Driver Liability

The main point of a car accident claim is to prove the other driver was the cause of the accident and is liable to pay for damages and injuries. Nevada is an at-fault state, which means that the person at fault is liable. For states that are no-fault, your insurance pays for your damages, no matter who is at fault. However, Nevada has a modified comparative negligence law. This state-specific law means that if you are more than 50% at fault, you will not recover damages. They would pay for damages on your car, your physical and emotional wellbeing, and other fees that would accrue as a result of the accident. Dimopoulos Injury Law can evaluate your case and give you the best advice with a free consultation.

Failure to Yield Collision Claims

Failure to yield is a leading cause of traffic accidents
Failure to yield the right-of-way is a leading cause of traffic accidents in Nevada.

A failure to yield is when a driver does not yield to the right-of-way of another driver. When a driver does not yield, they are extremely likely to cause an accident. This is what we call a failure to yield collision.

In Nevada, failure to yield the right-of-way is the leading cause of traffic accidents. They make up about 15% of the country’s accidents. As a driver in Las Vegas, you must always be alert of your right-of-way and those of others. The state of Nevada created Chapter 484B, also known as The Rules of the Road, to define several road laws and when a vehicle, pedestrian, or bicyclist has a right-of-way.

When to Yield to Others

The Rules of the Road have stated that you should yield in these situations:

  • A vehicle that enters an intersection and has no lights or traffic signals first, gets the right-of-way.
  • If two vehicles approach an open intersection at the same time, the vehicle on the right has the right-of-way while the car on the left yields.
  • Follow the traffic signs – stop at stoplights or stop signs, yield when there is a yield sign.
  • Yield for pedestrians walking across designated crosswalks.
  • Vehicles must yield to bicyclists or scooterists. They also must not enter or stop within designated bicyclist lanes except:
    • In an emergency
    • To avoid conflict with other traffic
    • Operating or parking a disabled vehicle
    • In compliance with the direction of a police officer
    • Entering/exiting an alleyway or driveway

Understanding when you need to yield will ensure everyone’s safety. Failure to yield can result in severe injury, heavy fines, or a misdemeanor. There will be instances where someone else does not yield when they should have. If you get into an accident with someone who did not yield, you must be able to prove that you are not at fault. In certain situations, who had the right-of-way will not always be obvious. Make sure you take plenty of photos and call the police to file a police report. Before talking to your insurance company, contact an accident lawyer to pursue your entitled compensation.

Failure to Yield Accident Causes

These types of accidents are often caused by someone not paying attention to the laws of the road or to their surroundings. This can mean the person was texting or on the phone with someone, eating, drinking, driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or they may just be inexperienced. Any of these situations may be the cause of failing to yield to any traffic signals or laws. Failure to yield accidents are caused by many different circumstances.

Las Vegas, Nevada takes failure to yield accidents very seriously and if someone is found guilty of yield failure, they are issued a minimum $350 dollar fine along with a misdemeanor and points on their driving record. If a person reaches 12 or more points in a year, the DMV will suspend their license for 6 months. For more information on the Nevada demerit point system, check out the Nevada DMV website for a list of codes.
