According to the Nevada Department of Transportation (DOT), there were in excess of 50,000 traffic crashes in 2010. Car accidents often involve tremendous forces and have the potential to cause serious injury to the people involved. In some cases, these injuries may be so severe that victims suffer life-long after-effects that serve as a painful reminder of their accident. While nothing can change the past, Nevada law strives to provide car accident victims with a modicum of relief by compensating them for their injuries and other losses associated with their accident.

Car Accidents Are Often the Result of Driver Negligence

Personal injury cases that arise because of car accidents generally turn on whether an accident was the result of someone else’s negligence. If it was, victims can usually recover compensation for their losses. In this context, “negligence” means failure to conduct oneself with the degree of care that a reasonable person would exercise in similar circumstances. Whether an act or omission is legal negligence is often a very fact-specific analysis and will depend on a number of different issues. In general, the following would likely be deemed to constitute negligent driving:

  • Distracted driving;
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol;
  • Speeding;
  • Failing to properly maintain a vehicle; and/or
  • Failure to yield the right of way.

Of course, there are many other forms of driver negligence that could potentially lead to an accident, so it is imperitive for victims to have a qualified attorney review the facts of their case prior to making a decision as to how to proceed.
While the vast majority of car accidents are caused by driver error, it is important to note that they can also result from defective vehicle design or manufacture or the negligence of a 3rd party such as a mechanic or car rental company. In these cases, victims may be able to assert a claim against a party other than the driver of the vehicle that struck them.
