Our thoughts are with the victims injured in this accident. We hope for their full recovery.
Car collisions each year in the state of Nevada leave thousands of victims with injuries that force them into area hospitals. In many instances, those harmed are required to remain hospitalized for several days or even weeks as they undergo medical care for their injuries. Injured victims who are left with internal organ damage, traumatic brain injuries, or spinal cord injuries not only face devastating immediate impacts but they are left with painful long-term consequences as well.
Although there are many cases where motorists are extremely cautious and considerate when it comes to their safety and the safety of others sharing the road, there is no way to foretell how other drivers who are sharing the road are going to drive. As a result, we continue to see thousands of innocent victims harmed as a direct result of negligent motorists who are not considerate of others. Vehicle operators who engage in reckless activities while operating their trucks, cars, and SUVs place the lives of others at great risk. Some of the main causes of traffic-related accidents in our state include:
- Motorists who are inexperienced
- Motorists who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Defective and malfunctioning parts
- Drivers who are distracted by phones, people, or other objects
- Motorists who take part in reckless driving behaviors
Being hurt in crashes due to the actions of another motorist brings forth both immediate and long-term consequences that influence the ability of those harmed to work, play, and act in general. When victims sustain injuries in crashes caused by others, it is crucial that they reach out to a knowledgeable car accident attorney in Nevada right away.
