Car Accidents in Las Vegas
Leaving out car accidents where damage to personal property was the sole outcome, the state of Nevada sees an estimated 12,000 car accidents every single year that cause either death or injury to at least one of the people involved.
Nevada also mirrors car accident data that encompasses the United States as a whole as their three principal driving infractions that result in the majority of the state’s fatal and injurious collisions are drunk driving, speeding, and inattentive driving, which tragically implies that the state’s car accident rate could be drastically lowered by people simply obeying the law.
