No one can prepare for the aftermath of a motor vehicle collision. Even a low-speed crash can result in serious and catastrophic injuries that drastically change the lives of injured parties and their families, and put them in a financial bind. Unfortunately, more than 50,000 people in the state of Nevada are hospitalized annually with injuries sustained in motor vehicle accidents. Drivers who speed, run red lights and disregard traffic control devices, or engage in other acts of negligence place the lives of other motorists sharing the road at risk.
Being hurt in collisions due to the actions of another driver brings forth both immediate and long-term consequences that negatively impact the ability of injured parties to work, play, and engage in various activities.
