Fatal Car Accidents in Nevada

Each year, tens of thousands of families across our state are negatively impacted by motor vehicle collisions. These accidents send countless people to area hospitals where they are forced to go through extensive medical treatment. Although we hope that all victims involved in accidents are able to recover from their injuries, this is far from the truth.

More than 290 people lose their lives in auto accidents in Nevada each year. These accidents are often preventable, yet we continue to witness the overwhelming consequences they have on families throughout the state. Many people end up losing their lives in crashes caused by driver actions. Some of the most common causes of crashes in our state include distracted, drivers who fail to yield the right of way, those who are impaired drivers, and those who act recklessly while behind the wheel.

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.
