Motor Vehicle Accidents in Nevada
Motor vehicle accidents can have a debilitating impact on the lives of those involved. Regrettably, we see many people in our state left with severe injuries from crashes. The Nevada Department of Transportation reports that nearly 52,000 car crashes take place each year in the state of Nevada.
Clearly, these motor vehicle accidents are an unfortunately common fact of life in Nevada, particularly on the bustling streets of Las Vegas. When it comes to fatal accidents and pedestrian incidents across the state, victims and families are particularly vulnerable in the aftermath.
After a car accident, those affected often cope with financial difficulties, long-term physical issues, and serious emotional trauma. Sadly, when victims succumb to their injuries, family members must deal with expensive medical and funerary costs.
Even worse, you may have to deal with frustrating insurance negotiations or even the denial of your claim. Thankfully, you and yours may have legal recourse in the aftermath of an injury accident.
