Reno drunk driving accident leaves driver facing prison time

Getting behind the wheel of a motor vehicle comes with great responsibility and is often taken for granted. Drivers must remain attentive and alert at all times, especially with the numerous distractions and dangers on Nevada roadways today. It is no secret that driving under the influence of alcohol is one of the most dangerous and risky things that a person can do. Alcohol impairs judgment and delays reaction time, making the most basic tasks extremely difficult. A recent drunk driving accident left a young girl injured and the driver facing a substantial prison sentence.

An accident typically occurs when we least expect it. Often, when a person gets behind the wheel of a motor vehicle, the furthest thing from his or her mind is being involved in a crash. However, statistics show that driving is one of the most dangerous things a person can do, especially these days on crowded Nevada roadways. Recently, a tragic auto accident claimed the life of teenage boy and left the driver behind bars.

Drunk driving accident results in lengthy prison sentence

While under the influence of alcohol, the simplest tasks can become very difficult. It is common knowledge that getting behind the wheel of a car while intoxicated is one of the most dangerous things a person can do. Impaired drivers endanger themselves and all others around them. A recent drunk driving accident in Reno, Nevada, is evidence of the devastating consequences of driving under the influence of alcohol. The crash claimed the lives of an elderly couple and left the perpetrator with a 40-year prison sentence.

Poor lighting can contribute to slip-and-fall accidents

Business and facilities in the state of Nevada and across the United States have an obligation to keep their premises free of hazards. Poor lighting or hazards left on the floor during maintenance can result in slip\-and\-fall accidents. A man in another state recently filed a lawsuit after claims that poor lighting caused him to fall down a flight of stairs and fracture his leg.

Pedestrian accident in Reno sends victim to hospital

Nevada cities are thriving these days. That means there are pedestrians literally everywhere. With vehicles and people in such close proximity, accidents are bound to happen. Unfortunately, since runners and walkers are exposed, the odds of serious injury in a pedestrian accident are greater. This was the case in a recent accident in Reno involving a vehicle and a man who was walking across a street.
