    The short answer to your question is that yes both insurance policies would be in play. You need to contact a Las Vegas personal injury attorney as soon as possible, preferably one that does not advertise on TV. Feel free to comment on this answer if you have any further questions.

    William’s Answer

    If you have a case and have made a policy limits demand and have shown enough information for the insurance company to reasonably establish that the case is worth the policy limits or more and then the insurance company does not tender the policy limits then you could collect more than $100,000. However if you made a policy limits demand and they tendered their policy then you will not be able to collect more than the policy limits unless you have an uninsured/underinsured motorist policy with your own insurance company. It's never a bad thing to have another attorney review your file however sometimes the situations are just that you're stuck with an at fault driver who doesn't have enough insurance.

    William’s Answer

    100/300 means 100 per person 300 per accident. The max you can collect would be 100k but there are some ways to remove the caps. Consult with an attorney as soon as possible.

  • A couple of months ago I did a submittal for 1st shoplifting offense. I had a six month stay out of trouble clause, pay fine

    and attend a class. A few days ago I got pulled over for texting while at a stop sign and not wearing a seatbelt. Is this a violation of my stay out of trouble clause?

    William’s Answer

    That would not be considered a violation. A stay out of trouble order means you can not have criminal charge larger than a traffic ticket.

  • When looking for a lawyer in a wrongful death case, car vs pedestrian, what contingency/expense agreement is fair?

    Should expenses be separate or covered by the contingency fee? If we agree to 1/3 contingency but the case then settles before significant discovery can I have a lower fee included in the agreement? How do I choose the right lawyer for this type...

    William’s Answer

    The fees are what you can get the attorney to agree to. Typically in Las Vegas the fees are 33% before filing suit and 40% after filing. Good luck!!
