Nevada Distracted Driving Accidents

Certain factors greatly increase the risk of a crash. When a driver fails to pay attention to the road, they will have their eyes away from driving almost 10 percent of the time. Nearly nine people in the United States lose their lives to distracted driving every day, and human error is to blame for about 90 percent of documented auto accidents. Data show that distracted driving is quickly overtaking other factors as the leading cause of car accidents in the nation. Over 3,000 fatal crashes involving distracted drivers occur each year, and in the time it takes to send a text, you might travel the length of a football field when traveling at highway speeds.

Your entire way of life is often at risk after a car crash. Most people cannot afford to cover the losses that result from a crash, so you need to be sure your legal rights are protected.
