Bicycle accidents: Driver flees scene after striking bicyclist

The weather is great year-round in the state of Nevada. Because of the wonderful climate, outdoor activities such as jogging and biking are very popular forms of recreation.

Car accidents: Las Vegas roads are more dangerous than ever

Las Vegas is one of the fastest growing cities in the country. People from all over the world are moving here to take advantage of the great economic opportunities and world-class entertainment that the city is so famous for. However, the sudden influx of traffic has made Nevada roadways a nightmare. So far this year, the Las Vegas Valley is on pace for the most deadly year ever. Car accidents can happen anytime in a blink of an eye.

Alleged fall in Walmart results in premises liability claim

Nevada is home to a multitude of stores and shops that provide residents and visitors with a variety of choices when it comes to shopping. Due to premises liability laws, property and business owners are obligated to provide a safe, hazard-free environment for customers. These laws state that all potential hazards must be removed or repaired. Examples of potential hazards are liquids on floors, foreign objects on floors or areas that have fallen under disrepair. Unfortunately, thousands of people across the country are injured in stores due to hazardous conditions.

The link between road construction and car crashes

While road construction is easy to find across many areas of the country, you may find it especially commonplace as a resident of Nevada.

While road construction is necessary for the state to continue to accommodate its influx of residents and visitors, these construction zones are becoming increasingly hazardous for motorists, with numerous car crashes taking place in them every day.
