Nevada Intersection Wrecks
According to information provided by the Federal Highway Administration, there are approximately 2.5 million intersection collisions that take place every single year in the United States. Of the total number of auto collisions that take place in Nevada and across the United States yearly, approximately 40% of them occur at intersections. This places intersection accidents as the second most common type of auto accident to occur in the United States, after rear-end accidents.
A large number of traffic accidents in Nevada are caused by driver negligence or recklessness. Approximately a third of all motor vehicle collisions that occur in the Silver State are caused by reckless drivers. Nevada drivers are ranked as some of the worst drivers in the United States. Each year, in just the city of Las Vegas, approximately 12,000 auto collisions take place resulting in thousands of injuries. Being injured in a traffic accident, especially one caused by another person’s negligence can cause emotional, physical, and financial distress to not only the injured victim but their family as well.
