Nevada Traffic Collisions

Carson City NV - Roll-Over Crash Injures Three at Curry & Rhodes StNevada traffic collisions can take place for a number of different reasons. Currently, the leading cause of accidents in Nevada to occur is distracted driving. This negligent driver behavior causes approximately 20% of all auto accidents in Nevada. In the largest city in Nevada, Las Vegas, almost half of the traffic collisions are caused by driver intoxication. These are both very dangerous forms of driver negligence, which is the leading cause of traffic accidents in the United States. 

The drivers in Nevada are ranked as the nation’s most accident-prone and dangerous. This is probably due to the fact that more than half of Nevada traffic accidents are caused by driver negligence. 42% of the traffic accidents that take place in Las Vegas, the largest city in Nevada, involve intoxication of some kind. Being a Nevada driver means that statistically speaking, you are likely to be involved in a traffic collision approximately once every eight years. You are about 21% more likely to be involved and injured in a car crash than the drivers in any other state.

California Auto Collisions

Tracy CA - One Person Injured in Auto Crash on I-205Nearly 500,000 car accidents occur in the Golden State each and every year, injuring more than 275,000 people and taking the lives of over 3,000. This means that thousands of California traffic accidents take place every single day, causing injury and, in worst-case scenarios, death to those involved. Sadly, California’s accident rate is one of the highest in the nation. This could be partially due to the fact that California is one of the most populated states in the United States, which ultimately means that the accident rates will be significantly higher than in other places.

We strive to provide our clients with the maximum compensation available for their own personal injuries and losses that may have resulted from being injured in an accident caused by carelessness. Drivers can be as careful as humanly possible on the road at any given time, but they are still unfortunately subjected to the unpredictable behaviors of other people on the road. Recoverable losses in a traffic accident case with injuries include but are not limited to, medical bills, pain and suffering, mental health treatment bills, prescription costs, funeral costs, and more. What losses you are able to recover greatly depends on the details of your recent traffic wreck.

 Depending on the circumstances of your recent accident, you could be able to collect full and fair financial compensation that could cover a large percentage if not all of the costs associated with your crash. 

If you or a loved one were injured by another person’s negligence while on the road, you could be entitled to significant compensation for your injuries and incurred damages.
