Distracted Driving Accidents in Nevada

Anytime someone is operating a motor vehicle, they need to have their entire focus on the road. Sadly, a lot of people drive carelessly when driving in Nevada. One of the main causes of serious crashes in the United States these days is distracted driving. Based on statistical data, distracted drivers caused 3,100 fatalities and 424,000 injuries in crashes last year alone. Simply talking with a passenger, using a cell phone, or fiddling with the radio dial can all be considered forms of distracted driving, and each takes your attention off the road, even if just a little bit. If you are hurt by a reckless driver who failed to focus on the road, you can potentially pursue a claim for compensation so that they are held liable for your injuries and other damages.

There is always a potential that you will be involved in an automobile accident when driving. It only takes a few seconds for another driver's reckless behavior to leave you with serious injuries.
