Nevada Distracted Driving Accidents

Driving is risky enough on its own. It is downright dangerous when drivers are not focused on the road. Across the nation, distracted driving has rapidly risen to the top of the list of factors that cause catastrophic auto accidents. According to statistics, negligent drivers cause the deaths of over 3,000 individuals in the United States every year, and hundreds of thousands more are seriously injured. Nevada has a special problem with distracted driving. According to a recent five-year study by the Nevada Office of Traffic Safety (NOTS), distracted driving—which can include everything from texting while driving to conversing with a passenger in the backseat—is to blame for about 4 percent of collisions in the state. You are entitled to compensation for your injuries and any damages, regardless of what caused the crash. Nevada roadways are far from safe, and it only takes one single driver to cause a life-changing auto accident. Reckless driving is common on the state’s roads, and most Nevadans know someone who has been impacted by a serious collision. You need to be sure that you are well informed of your legal rights to maximize your recovery during this difficult time.
