Deadly Multi-Car Wrecks in Nevada
Nevada sees an estimated 300 fatal car accidents each year. The state also ranks in the middle in terms of total vehicular fatalities when compared to the rest of the country. Regrettably, the number of deadly accidents across the state rose almost 4% between 2019 and 2020 in spite of a decrease in overall traffic due to the pandemic.
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.
