Las Vegas, NV asked in Car Accidents for Nevada

Q: I changed lanes and then as I passed the car to the left they moved into my lane hitting me. Their ins. Co said we both

We're at fault and something about shared responsibility. Been trying to get ahold of them but to no avail. How do I dispute their decision and get my car fixed

A: A Nevada attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for three weeks. The situation you describe is a difficult one to resolve amicably. It's your word against the other driver's. Unless there's some form of convincing evidence, such as video footage or testimony from a credible witness, these tend to be tough cases. One option is to try to convince the claims examiner, which it looks like you already tried to do; another is to contemplate legal action. If bodily injury claims did not arise (I hope no one was hurt), a law firm might not be able to handle the matter on a contingency. Depending on the amount of damages involved, it could be worth weighing that against the cost of legal action. Good luck
