Nevada travelers must be careful to avoid trucking accidents

Travelers and commuters making their way across the state of Nevada often utilize interstate highways, which offer the convenience of faster travel with less stop-and-go traffic. However, travelers share these popular roadways with an increasing number of semitrailers that are making their way across the country. As the economy grows, so does the need to transport goods and merchandise. This equates to more and more big rigs criss-crossing the country, which can lead to trucking accidents.

Pedestrian accidents are increasing across Nevada

A reason why Nevada cities are in the midst of a population boom is the warm, comfortable climate. Even during the colder months, the warm climate in Nevada enables residents to enjoy a host of outdoor activities such as walking, running or biking. Those that live in and around cities often choose walking as a primary source of transportation. Walking is not only economical, but has many health benefits. Unfortunately, walking along congested city streets can also be very dangerous as pedestrian accidents are rising across the state.

Odds for fatal car accidents are steadily increasing in Nevada

Getting behind the wheel of a motor vehicle these days does not come without risk. There are around two million licensed drivers in the state of Nevada, which means roadways are more crowded than ever before. Car accidents will inevitably happen with so many vehicles sharing the road. Tragically, a shocking number of these accidents prove to be fatal. Recent statistics say the odds of person being involved in a fatal car crash in Nevada is 1 in 4,947, which is higher than most states.

Who is liable if you are in a ridesharing accident?

The tourism industry in Nevada has contributed a great deal toward taxis and ridesharing services in the area. Whether you have had a little too much to drink while gambling or decided you feel too tired to walk the rest of the way to your hotel while touring the Strip, chances are you might pull out your phone and summon an Uber or Lyft driver. What happens if you are in a crash when you are with a commercial driver?

Car accidents can happen at any time

Life is uncertain and accidents can happen any place at any time. These days, drivers must be focused and attentive at all times. Roadways in Nevada and across the United States are becoming increasingly crowded and filled with distracted and reckless drivers. Car accidents are happening more frequently and can have deadly consequences.
