Car Accidents in Nevada

Studies surrounding the driving habits of Nevada residence found that drivers in our state are some of the most accident-prone in the nation. In fact, more than 12,000 accidents take place annually in Las Vegas while thousands more across the state send victims to area hospitals with life-altering injuries.
