Nevada Auto Accidents

Las Vegas, NV - Three Killed in Wreck on US 95 near SR-266Fatal traffic accidents happen every single day in the United States and the state of Nevada. Yearly, around 40,000 people lose their lives in car accidents throughout the country. In Nevada, hundreds of individuals are killed annually due to traffic accidents. Countless circumstances cause these wrecks, however, driver negligence is the main culprit behind most of the reported auto collisions in the United States. 

Negligent driving has risen to the top of the list of reasons why traffic accidents occur across the nation. People who allow themselves to become distracted, travel at unsafe speeds and drive while intoxicated or fatigued cause over 94% of reported car crashes every single year. Sadly, the majority of injurious and fatal auto accidents in the US are preventable and caused by the negligent actions of drivers.
