Car Accident Property Damage Lawyer in Las Vegas, NV
When your property is damaged, you do not want to end up having to pay out of your pocket to restore the losses that you have experienced if someone else was responsible for causing the harm.
Unfortunately, it can be complicated to get motorists who caused property damage accidents to take responsibility and to pay out what is owed. Accidents in which property damage has occurred should always be reported to the insurance company — do not trust any driver who tells you he is going to compensate you personally for the damage, as it may be more costly than anticipated, and the other driver may not pay as promised.
You need to make certain that you understand your legal rights and take a smart approach to dealing with financial loss caused by property damage. This means getting help from a Las Vegas accident attorney such as Paul Marrero who can guide you through the process of making a claim and pursuing compensation.
LV Personal Injury Lawyers can help. We have extensive experience guiding accident victims through the process of pursuing claims with their own insurer or with the insurer of another driver who was responsible for harming them. Our goal is to help ensure that you get full and fair compensation, so you do not suffer out-of-pocket losses as a result of an accident that has caused property damage to occur.
Types of Property Damage from Auto Accidents?
Automobile accidents can cause damage to different types of property. Some of the common types of property damage that can occur include:
- Damage to your own motor vehicle as a result of an accident
- Damage to motor vehicles belonging to other drivers involved in a crash
- Damage to buildings near roadways, such as if a car strikes a building
- Damage to road signs
- Damage to road barricades or other materials on roadways
- Damage to motorcycles
- Damage to bicycles
- Damage to cargo being transported in commercial trucks
In some cases, property damage can be very substantial in the event of an accident in Nevada. When a car is hit by another vehicle, for example, there are times when the car may be declared a total loss because it would cost too much money to fix, and the car is not worth enough to justify this expense.
Because property damage can result in significant financial loss, those who have property damaged as a result of an incident on the road should consult with the appropriate Vegas accident attorney for help.
Who is Responsible for Property Damage After Motor Vehicle Accidents in Las Vegas
A driver who causes an accident can typically be held legally liable for any damage that happens because of his or her actions. This can mean the motorist must pay for both property damage as well as injuries that result from the accident. When motorists buy insurance, they usually have coverage for both liability resulting from injury and from liability resulting from damage they do to the property.
To obtain compensation for property damage, an accident victim would need to be able to show the other driver had done something wrong to cause a crash. This could include not following the rules of the road, which creates a presumption of negligence that could lead to liability. It could also include doing something unreasonably careless when no prudent motorist would have behaved in that way under the circumstances.

Finally, victims need to show the extent of the damage to property. There can be a dispute over the value of repairs or how much destroyed property is worth, which will need to be resolved.
Motorists could also pursue a claim with their own insurer to pay for the costs associated with damaged property if their vehicles were damaged in an accident and the motorist had collision coverage on their insurance policy.
The process of working with your own insurer is different than making a claim against another motorist who caused a crash to occur, but you still have rights if your insurer treats you unfairly and fails to provide reasonable compensation for your losses — up to policy limits.
