Auto Accidents in Nevada
Car crashes are the primary contributors to death and serious injury of Nevada residents. A report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration found that Nevada ranked on the top ten list of worst drivers in the country. Las Vegas drivers are particularly known for their recklessness on the roads, and speeding, intoxication, and driver distraction are significant issues in the city. Hundreds lose their lives in vehicle collisions across the state each year, with more than 12,000 car accidents taking place in Las Vegas each year.
Pursuing deserved compensation can be difficult after being injured in a car accident, and crash victims who negotiate with the insurance company may find themselves in a difficult situation. Despite what they may say, the insurance company wants to make you accept the lowest settlement possible, and that means minimizing your compensation following a car crash. Medical bills, missed work, and emotional suffering all add up quickly, and crash victims are entitled to recover compensation by pursuing a personal injury claim. If you have been injured in a serious Las Vegas car crash, you need to contact a qualified Nevada car accident lawyer immediately.
