Las Vegas Car Accident Attorney

Serving Henderson, Clark County, Nye County, & Mesquite

With more vehicles on the road today, the risk of being involved in a car accident is increasing. In a recent year, 38,824 people were killed and 2.28 million were injured in traffic crashes on U.S. roadways, as reported by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Nevada is an at-fault state for car accidents – the person who caused the car accident is held accountable and pays for all damages.

A truly phenomenal and compassionate attorney. I will be forever grateful.

What Are the Leading Causes of Car Accidents?

Although there are other contributing factors, most motor vehicle collisions are caused by some type of driver error. Common causes of car accidents include:

  • Speeding
  • Tailgating
  • Unsafe lane changes
  • Failure to obey traffic signs and signals
  • Distracted driving
  • Fatigued driving
  • Failure to yield the right-of-way
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs

Factors Affecting Severity of Car Accident Injuries

Car accident injuries can range in severity from minor to fatal. Factors affecting severity of injuries include:

  • Speed of the collision
  • Seatbelt use
  • Airbags
  • Direction the person was facing
  • Whether the vehicle was hit from the front, side, or rear

Common Injuries Sustained in Car Crashes 

A car crash can cause impact injuries and/or penetrating injuries. Impact injuries occur when a part of a person’s body slams into something in the interior of the vehicle. Penetrating injuries are cuts, scrapes, or punctures caused by loose, flying objects or shattered glass. Common injuries in car accidents include:

  • Soft tissue injuries, including whiplash and muscle sprains
  • Head trauma and brain injury
  • Chest injuries, including broken ribs
