What Laws Come into Play in a Las Vegas Rear-End Accident Case?
Nevada’s Legal System Follows a Modified Comparative Negligence Rule
Whenever a rear-end accident occurs, an at-fault party becomes responsible for the losses of another party. However, it's not as simple as both parties often blame each other or may have even contributed to the accident. For this reason, it becomes difficult to determine who is at fault and to what extent.
If both parties share some degree of fault, they will be liable to each other to their extent of fault. For example, when one party overspeeds, typically above 65 mph on highways and 45 mph on main thoroughfares, and the other follows too closely, both parties will likely be at fault in a rear-end collision. They will share liability for each other's losses in proportion to their respective degrees of fault.
In these cases, the law allows one party whose fault is less than 51% to recover damages in proportion from the other party.
Tailgating Is Illegal
As per Nevada Revised Statutes 484B.127, you must leave a reasonable distance between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you.
Following the other vehicle too closely is against the law and contributes to the fault in rear-end crashes. Additionally, it can attract a penalty of $310 and 4 demerit points on your driving record.
Statute of Limitation
If you don't file your lawsuit within the specified time, you will most likely lose your right to compensation. The specified time for filing your rear-end accident lawsuit is two years from the date of the accident.
