Car accidents in Nevada

The state of Nevada is no stranger to car accidents. Each year, the Silver State sees approximately 50,000 auto accidents. For example, in 2022, Nevada saw 51,664 traffic collisions, about 30,000 of which caused property damage. Additionally, 18,675 accidents resulted in injuries, and 235 ended in fatalities. That same year, 416 people lost their lives in traffic accidents. Overall, 2022 was considered one of the deadliest years for Nevada car wrecks ever recorded.

More than 6 million car accidents occur throughout the United States every year. In one recent year, more than 2 million people were injured in auto collisions, and approximately 45,000 ended up losing their lives. Sadly, the majority of American traffic accidents are caused by driver negligence. According to information provided by the Office of Traffic Safety, in Nevada specifically, speeding is the primary cause of most collisions. Driving at unsafe speeds makes it impossible for motorists to respond appropriately when emergencies arise. Other forms of driver negligence have become increasingly common among American drivers, including: 

  • Intoxication
  • Distraction
  • Fatigue
