There are many ways to be injured in a car accident in Northern Nevada. There are the standard ways that many people get injured, like getting sideswiped by another vehicle, hit as a pedestrian crossing the street, rear ended in traffic, t-boned at an intersection by someone running a red light, and a myriad of other ways. Drunk drivers, sober drivers, distracted drivers, people driving tired (which, studies have shown, is often worse than driving drunk), these are ways we think of being injured in an accident. It’s easy, when the person at fault is a stranger in another vehicle. Then there is very little that stops you from seeking the compensation you deserve to pay your medical bills, compensate you for time lost at work and with loved ones, and pain and suffering. But the situation can feel a little different when you were injured in an automobile accident near Reno when the person at fault was the driver of the vehicle you were a passenger in, was perhaps a friend of yours. No matter how you were injured in a vehicle accident in Nevada, in Washoe County or anywhere in the area, contact Benson & Bingham Attorneys at Law. We offer free initial consultations to go over your case with you to determine your best course of legal action.
There was a recent tragic car accident near Reno that followed just this scenario, with a man allegedly driving drunk in Nevada who purportedly rolled his Hyundai after hitting a guardrail, and seriously injured his passenger, Shane Fish, a 22 year old. It can seem hard in a case like this, if you were in Shane’s position, to think about bringing a legal action against the driver to cover the money you need to pay your bills and move on with your life. It’s important to remember that you’re rarely suing your friend or loved one, whoever was driving, you’re suing the insurance company. The thousands of dollars you are owed is not going to come out of the pocket of your friend or loved one, it will come from a big insurance company, who the driver has been paying for a long time to cover just such an occurrence as this.
