Yes. Uninsured and underinsured motorists who cause accidents can be sued for their negligence in Nevada. The problem, however, is collecting what is needed from the negligent driver to repair the damage he or she caused to you and your vehicle. Many drivers who illegally drive without insurance do so because they are poor and have no assets. If the negligent driver has assets, however, those assets can be used to pay for the damages. These assets can be difficult to access and may be hidden, however. To help protect yourself from the difficulties of collecting against uninsured motorists, it is a good idea to carry your own uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. Then, if you are unlucky enough to be hit by a negligent uninsured driver, your own insurance would also be responsible to cover your damages. Because of the nuances of Nevada law and difficulties in recovering damages from an uninsured or underinsured driver, it is important to hire an experienced and reputable lawyer from the beginning of your case to understand all of your options. At Harris & Harris Injury Lawyers, we help our clients win against uninsured and underinsured drivers, as well as our clients' own insurance companies, and make sure our clients get everything possible to help them recover from a car wreck.
