Las Vegas Speeding-Related Crashes
Speeding is a common sight on Las Vegas roadways. Despite the known dangers of speeding, many drivers are perfectly comfortable exceeding the speed limit, and aggressive actions and stressful deadlines are just a few possible causes of speeding. Speeding has been involved in roughly 33% of reported vehicle fatalities across the country over the past two decades, and nearly 26% of reported roadway deaths in 2018 involved speeding drivers. That year, there were 9,378 confirmed fatalities involving high-speed collisions, an average of 25 deaths per day.
Even the most careful drivers can find themselves the victim of a serious accident, and it is crucial that those injured in Las Vegas car crashes pursue the compensation they deserve after being unfairly injured by a reckless driver. For most Nevada residents, driving is our primary form of transportation, and anytime you are traveling the streets of Las Vegas, the risk of a crash is always present. Despite this fact, most drivers are unsure of what to do in the event of a crash, and many accident victims are overwhelmed when pursuing a Nevada personal injury claim for compensation.
