Highway Automobile Accidents

The Nevada Department of Transportation has made a great effort to reduce the number of accidents and fatalities on Nevada roads. It has been somewhat effective – until data from 2012 revealed that there were more traffic deaths in 2012 than the previous year. The Nevada Department of Transportation and Department of Public Safety reported in March, 2013, that 258 people died in car crashes in Nevada in 2012. If you were injured in an accident that was caused by another’s negligence, or, if a loved one lost their life in a car wreck that was due to the conduct of the driver, it is advisable to obtain a consultation with an attorney to preserve your rights to compensatory damages. Las Vegas Attorney Paul W. VanDerwerken offers a complimentary case consultation.

Reasons for Nevada Accidents

Nevada is trying to reduce fatal accidents on highways and roads by identifying “certain situations” that result in life-ending crashes, including:

  • Motorists should never get behind the wheel if they are under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • There are an estimated 50 Nevada DUI arrests on any given day – these arrests presumably save lives
  • Motorists should be particularly careful when driving near pedestrians and intersections
  • Over a period of 5 years, there were 467 deaths in Nevada intersections – most were avoidable

Compensatory Damages for Injuries, Death

Many highway deaths are caused by accidents with 18-wheelers and other big-rigs. These vehicles can weigh up to 80,000 pounds and are extremely dangerous. If you were injured in an accident that was caused by the negligence of another driver, you may seek compensation such as medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, property damage and more. If a loved one lost their life, heirs can file a wrongful death claim. Ask your attorney for details.
