Nevada Auto Collisions

Each year in Las Vegas, tens of thousands of people end up with injuries due to car crashes. The state sees more than 50,000 auto accidents per year that take the lives of hundreds. Individuals who cause auto accidents often engage in negligent behaviors such as intoxication, fatigue, speeding, and distraction. The most common reason car accidents happen in the state of Nevada at this time is speeding. Speeding is a dangerous activity that millions of Americans engage in every year.
