I am so sorry to hear about your daughter's accident. In Nevada, NRS §484D.495 requires adults riding in cars to wear seatbelts. However, the law says that a violation of the rule is not a moving traffic violation and may not be considered as negligence in any personal injury action. Relevant portions of NRS §484D.495 are set forth below:
NRS 484D.495 Safety belts and shoulder harness assembly; requirements for child and other passenger; penalty; exemptions.
2. Any person driving, and any passenger who:
(a) Is 6 years of age or older; or
(b) Weighs more than 60 pounds, regardless of age, who rides in the front or back seat of any vehicle described in subsection 1, having an unladen weight of less than 10,000 pounds, on any highway, road or street in this State shall wear a safety belt if one is available for the seating position of the person or passenger.
4. A violation of subsection 2:
(a) Is not a moving traffic violation under NRS 483.473.
(b) May not be considered as negligence or as causation in any civil action or as negligent or reckless driving under NRS 484B.653.
So, what does this actually mean in a Las Vegas car accident case? It means that although the law requires you to wear your seatbelt, evidence of whether you were wearing your seat belt, in a car crash, does not come into a jury trial. For example, let’s assume you are driving in your car for a short trip to the corner store and do not put on your seatbelt. While you are driving, a drunk driver crashes into your car, causing you to be thrown forward. Due to the accident, you sustained serious injuries. Based on this rule, the drunk driver would NOT be allowed to bring up the fact that you were not wearing your seatbelt, to somehow show it was the cause of your injuries.

There is a provision in Nevada Revised Statutes to serve the Director of the DMV with service of process of a lawsuit, when a driver cannot be found. See NRS 14.070. I also agree with counsel's statement that if you order a copy of the police report (if one was prepared), that the other driver's address should be listed.See question

You should talk to your lawyer in person about possibly reducing your medical bills even further. You should also discuss with your attorney about his or her fee breakdown pursuant to the representation/fee agreement you would have signed with them. Hopefully, you will be able to amicably work this out with your lawyer. Aside from that, the State Bar of Nevada, has a fee dispute resolution process that you can use. However, it would be better if you would work it out with your lawyer first. Best wishes on your case.See question
