Car Accidents in Nevada
Being involved in a motor vehicle accident can be extremely devastating. The last thing that we ever expect is to sustain a life-altering injury in a motor vehicle accident. Unfortunately, more than 50,000 people in the state of Nevada are hospitalized annually with injuries sustained in motor vehicle accidents. Depending on the severity of injuries, many victims can go through months of therapy and rehabilitation without a promise of a full recovery. Unfortunately, no matter how careful we are while driving across Nevada roadways we cannot predict the actions of others. In fact, over 80% of motor vehicle accidents in our state are caused by driver error. We see a significant number of people harmed in accidents due to impaired drivers, those who speed and run red lights, as well as drivers who engage in reckless driving behaviors while operating their vehicles.
