Fatal Car Accidents in Nevada
Cars, pickup trucks, and SUVs are some of the most common methods of transportation throughout the entire country. Motor vehicles have made many advances since they became widely available in our country. Though there have been endless measures taken to incorporate and improve safety features in vehicles, there is no way to guarantee the safety of vehicle occupants involved in collisions. We continue to see people lose their lives from collisions at an alarming rate.
Every year, more than 40,000 people lose their lives in motor vehicle accidents across the United States. We see our fair share of fatal accidents here in Nevada.
