Motor Vehicle Accidents in Las Vegas
Officials with the Nevada Department of Transportation show nearly 52,000 reported car crashes statewide in one year alone. And officers with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department added that almost 45% of that total occurred in Las Vegas.
Clearly, these motor vehicle accidents are an unfortunately common fact of life in Nevada. This is particularly true when it comes to the bustling streets of Las Vegas. And victims and families are particularly vulnerable in the aftermath of fatal accidents.
After a serious auto 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 in the aftermath.
However, if you have suffered injuries in an accident or lost a loved one, you may have legal recourse. You can and should reach out to a Las Vegas auto accident attorney right away.
