Nevada Traffic Accidents

Las Vegas, NV - Injuries Caused by Car Wreck on S 13th St near Clark AveCar accidents have become a significant issue in the United States and throughout Nevada. In 2022, 42,795 people lost their lives in fatal car accidents throughout the country. This is a small drop of approximately 0.3% compared to 2021. Sadly, car accidents are the main cause of death among individuals ages 15 to 20 across the nation. Additionally, people ages 16 to 19 are most often involved and injured in auto collisions. The fatal crash rate among teenage drivers is almost 3 times that of drivers aged 20 or higher, per mile driven. 

According to information provided by the National Safety Council, the odds of dying in an auto accident are about one in 103 in the United States. This means that at least one death out of every 103 drivers on the road will occur on any given day. Car accidents in the United States happen for countless reasons, however, the main one is driver negligence. The most commonly seen form of driver negligence is driver distraction, which causes over 400,000 accidents per year across the country. Sadly, more than 3,000 individuals end up losing their lives in crashes caused by distracted driving. Experts consider distraction a substantial public health issue in the United States. Distracted driving reduces a driver’s reaction time, increases their inability to remain in their lane, and increases the devastation that results from an accident. 

Other common forms of negligent driving that cause a substantial number of traffic accidents every year include fatigue, speeding, and intoxication.
