Car Accidents are, unfortunately, some of the most frustrating, upsetting, and dangerous accidents that impact thousands of people each and every year. Car accidents lead to more than just a high repair bill, but can also carry months of physical rehabilitation as well as intense mental anguish. Therefore, it is important to bring an car accident claim to an experienced and successful Las Vegas car accident attorney as soon as possible. The longer you wait to bring your claim, the less eyewitness data we can collect and the closer you get to the end of the limitations period.
Car Accidents in Las Vegas
Car accidents have decreased nationwide over the last decade, but Nevada isn’t following this trend. In 2012, there were a total of 70 car accident fatalities throughout Nevada compared to 175 in 2014. The number of car accidents is rapidly increasing, and it’s up to you, the driver, to ensure your safety on the roads. Remember the two rules of driving: 1. Don’t hit anyone. 2. Don’t be hit by anyone. Of course, there will always be instances where a driver may be incapable of following one of the two rules. Single vehicle accidents, speeding accidents, rollover accidents, and accidents in an intersection or on a roadway departure can all cause serious personal injuries and high expenses, both medical and car repair.
While car accident numbers continue to raise, the occurrence of driver distraction from texting, smart car features, and passengers create a much harder category of accident to maintain and diminish.
Car Accident Injuries
Car accidents can vary in their intensities, from side swipe accidents and rear-end collisions to head-on collisions, rollover accidents, and even fatal auto accidents. Broken bones, burns, amputations, brain injuries, spinal injuries, and head and neck injuries are all common in car accidents.
Many of these injuries can take weeks, months, and even years to completely recover from. The victim of the personal injuries may not be able to work during this time and will therefore be entitled to compensation, such as medical expenses, lost wages, future earnings, repair costs, and non-economic damages. You are entitled to receive compensation for your personal injuries even if you were partially at fault for the accident. However, if you are found to be more than 50% at fault, you are not entitled to any recovery pay. This is why you should always remember and follow the two rules of driving. If you have any questions about your likelihood of recovering economic and non-economic damages, do not hesitate to contact our Las Vegas personal injury attorneys.
