Car Accidents in Nevada

Auto wrecks each year in the state of Nevada leave thousands of victims with injuries that force them into local hospitals. In many instances, those harmed are required to remain hospitalized for several days or even weeks as they go through medical care for their injuries. Those who are injured in crashes are often left with internal organ damage, traumatic brain injuries, or spinal cord injuries not only face devastating immediate impacts, but they are left with painful long-term consequences as well.

Although there are many instances where drivers are extremely cautious and considerate when it comes to their safety and the safety of others sharing the road, there is no way to foretell how other motorists who are sharing the road are going to drive. As a result, we continue to see thousands of innocent parties hurt as a direct result of negligent motorists who are not considerate of others. Vehicle operators who engage in reckless activities while operating their cars, trucks, and SUVs place the lives of others at great risk. Some of the main causes of traffic-related incidents in our state include:

  • Drivers who take part in reckless driving behaviors
  • Drivers who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Defective and malfunctioning parts
  • Motorists who are distracted by phones, people, or other objects
  • Drivers who are inexperienced

Being injured in crashes due to the actions of another motorist brings forth both immediate and long-term consequences that impact victims’ ability to work and engage in various tasks. When victims are harmed in collisions caused by others, it is imperative that they reach out to a competent car accident attorney in Nevada right away.
