Here is the problem with driving a motor vehicle: You never know if somebody else will do something that causes an accident. Even if you are obeying the rules of the road, another person could make a mistake, such as driving drunk, that causes serious injury or even death.
As a driver in Nevada, you need to understand the risks of taking to the road. It doesn't matter if you are traveling a short distance or taking a long trip, one error could cause a serious accident.
Some accidents are caused by mistakes made by two or more drivers. Others, however, are directly tied to the negligence of one person. As noted above, this could be something as simple as a person who is driving drunk. Or maybe a person decides to text while driving, causing an accident that puts you in the hospital.
In addition to the above, there are other types of car accidents. For example, there are rear-end collisions at stop lights. There are also times when a person drives down a one-way street in the wrong direction.
You get the point. There are a lot of mistakes that can be made by drivers.
If you or a loved one were injured in a motor vehicle accident, it is time to determine who was responsible. This will go a long way in deciding if you are in position to file a personal injury lawsuit to collect compensation for damages.
