Deadly Rollover Crashes in Nevada

A rollover is a particularly dangerous type of collision. These accidents often cause the vehicle to leave the road and occupants to be ejected, sustaining life-threatening injuries in the process. This greatly increases the risk of fatal injuries. A total of 7,640 people were killed in rollover accidents nationwide in 2021. Statistics show that top-heavy vehicles like sport-utility vehicles and pickup trucks are more likely to overturn in the event of a crash. The majority of fatalities in rollovers involved unrestrained passengers.

In Nevada, wrongful death is a civil cause of action that occurs when someone loses their life due to someone else’s negligent actions. In these instances, a claim can be brought by the executor of the deceased’s estate or surviving family members. There is generally a two-year statute of limitations in place to pursue a wrongful death claim in Nevada. This means you essentially have two years to pursue a case, or you risk completely losing your right to get any compensation for the incident.

If someone wrongfully caused the death of another, they can be held responsible through a wrongful death claim.
