Car Accidents in Nevada

In 2018, the state of Nevada hit an all-time high in the number of fatal motor vehicle accidents. Although various measures have been taken to ensure the safety of motorists traveling throughout the state, we continue to see a significant number of victims hospitalized with life-altering injuries. In fact, more than 50,000 people are harmed in collisions across our state every year. 

Although many accidents result in minor injuries and inconveniences for victims, many people are left with spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and other severe injuries that dramatically impact their health and well-being.
