Car Accident Injuries in Clark County

Every year, tens of thousands of people are hospitalized with injuries following motor vehicle accidents in the state of Nevada. In many instances, those harmed are left with severe, life-threatening injuries that negatively impact their ability to work and enjoy life. 

When victims are left with injuries like traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and internal organ damage, they are often required to go through emergency surgery and have to spend days or even weeks in hospitals to recover. 

Depending on the severity of the injury, victims often face months of therapy and rehabilitation following their accidents. Although there are many treatment options available, there is no guarantee that victims will ever fully recover.

Instead, we see thousands of people left permanently disabled following their accidents. Not only are many people left to endure painful mental and physical injuries, but they often face significant financial consequences as well.
