Hit-&-Run Accidents in Nevada

A hit-and-run crash is a devastating incident, and it can leave a victim unable to get the help they desperately need in order to make a complete recovery. Across the country, nearly five percent of car crashes involve drivers who flee the scene. There were 285 deadly car accidents reported in Nevada in 2019, meaning that an estimated 14 of these fatal crashes involved a hit-and-run. There were more than 3,000 hit-and-run crashes reported in Las Vegas alone from 2018 to 2020.

Any type of car accident can be a completely traumatic event. However, the distress that is often involved in a hit-and-run can be completely devastating. It is common for crash victims to be unsure of where to turn after a driver flees the scene of a serious crash. You likely will not know who will cover your injuries and other resulting damages as the at-fault party is nowhere to be found. However, even hit-and-run crashes can lead to successful personal injury lawsuits.

If you are hit by a driver who flees the scene, you need to write down everything you can see about the vehicle. This includes the license plate and a possible description of the driver. Then, you should contact the authorities to register the incident and get an accident report. It is possible that authorities can track down the driver and you can pursue a case against the at-fault party.
