Car Accidents in Nevada

More than 60,000 victims are hospitalized every year following traffic-related incidents in the state of Nevada. Although the majority of motor vehicle crashes in our state and in minor injuries for those involved, we see a significant number of victims hospitalized with severe and life-threatening injuries year after year. In many instances, those harmed sustained traumatic brain injuries, broken bones, burn injuries, and other severe injuries that require both immediate and long-term care.

Although many drivers are careful while entering roadways across our state, we continue to see a substantial number of people harmed in accidents due to the negligence of others. In fact, more than 80% of collisions across our state are a result of drivers engaging in negligent and reckless behaviors while operating their vehicles.
