3 things to do after a ridesharing accident

Ridesharing applications have become a popular way for people to get around, but the convenience does not come without its fair share of risks. Many ridesharing users are unaware that they may not be covered if they are injured in an accident while using Uber or another ridesharing service. According to a NBC News, some states are now warning passengers to make them aware.

Toddler killed in tragic Nevada auto accident

Automobile accidents are one of the leading causes of death in America these days. Navigating crowded roadways can be a difficult task, especially in a state experiencing a population boom like that of Nevada. More vehicles sharing the road increases the chances of an auto accident occurring. Unfortunately, some of these accidents have fatal results. Tragically, a toddler in Reno recently died as a result of injuries suffered in a multi-vehicle crash.

Hit-and-run pedestrian accident claims the life of Reno man

Just like driving, walking along roadways these days can be a risky endeavour. In many crowded Nevada cities, walking is a main source of transportation. As populations rise, more and more pedestrians are put in harm's way as they attempt to navigate busy city streets. With so many pedestrians and vehicles in the same vicinity, it is not a question of if a pedestrian accident will occur, but when. One such accident recently claimed the life of a Reno man.

Deadly auto accident claims the life of police officer

It goes without saying that driving is one of the most dangerous activities in the lives of most Nevada citizens these days. With the number of vehicles on today's roadways, getting from point A to point B can oftentimes be an adventure fraught with risk. The odds of an auto accident occurring continue to increase as more and more people use roads and highways to take advantage of the wonderful opportunities that abound in Nevada's cities. Unfortunately, accidents will happen, and some accidents can have deadly consequences. A tragic accident recently happened in Las Vegas when a driver headed in the wrong direction and collided with a police car, fatally injuring the officer inside.

Passenger ejected and injured due to alleged drunk driver

Roadways in the state of Nevada are dangerous enough, but when drivers impaired by alcohol take to the roadway, the chances of an accident occurring skyrocket. It's no secret that alcohol and driving do not mix. Driving under the influence of alcohol can have deadly consequences. Alcohol impairs judgment and reduces reaction time, thus escalating the odds of an accident occurring. One such recent accident involving alcohol resulted in serious injuries and left an alleged drunk driver facing serious charges.
