Fatal Auto Accidents in Nevada
More than 290 people lose their lives in auto accidents in Nevada each year. These crashes are often preventable, yet we continue to witness the devastating consequences they have on families throughout the state. Although we often take proactive measures to ensure we act responsibly behind the wheel, there is no way to guarantee others will do the same. As a result, many people end up passing away from collisions caused by driver actions. We see countless people lose their lives in accidents caused by drivers who are texting, drunk or impaired, distracted, or engaging in various negligent actions while operating their vehicles.
When people lose their lives in accidents, due to the negligence of other drivers, their families should seek legal guidance from a competent wrongful death attorney in Nevada as soon as possible. Families may be entitled to compensation to help alleviate some of the financial burdens they face moving forward after losing loved ones in crashes. Some of the damages families may be entitled to include compensation for:
- Lost earnings
- Pain and suffering
- Medical expenses
- Loss of benefits
- Loss of consortium
- Lost companionship
- Mental anguish
- Property damage
