Car Accidents in Nevada
According to recent traffic statistics, approximately 2.5 million auto collisions take place at intersections across the nation each year. This is equivalent to nearly 40% of the national accident rate. Intersections are indeed very dangerous places when considering traffic accidents. Having to cross another vehicle’s path is always a risky endeavor, especially when other drivers are engaging in negligent behaviors such as becoming distracted from the road or speeding. These are two of the most common causes of Nevada traffic accidents.
Another common cause of traffic accidents in Nevada is intoxicated driving which accounts for nearly 20% of the Silver State’s yearly traffic fatalities. When injuries are caused by negligence in traffic accidents, injured victims are usually able to collect substantial financial compensation for their injuries and losses.
