Car accidents: New bill would allow officers to search phones

Distracted driving is a big problem across the United States. For drivers these days, there are more distractions than ever before. In Nevada, it is against the law for drivers to have a cell phone in their hands while driving. It's no secret that texting and driving is a common cause of car accidents today. A new bill recently introduced in Nevada would allow law enforcement officers to check the cell phones of drivers who were involved in a crash.

Premises liability: Alleged parking lot fall leads to lawsuit

In Nevada, business and property owners must adhere to strict rules and regulations that were put in place for the protection of customers and visitors. To adhere to these premises liability laws, foreign objects must be removed from floors, faulty infrastructure must be repaired or warnings must be provided alerting visitors to the potential dangers. Unfortunately due to a lack of funding or resources, maintenance can sometimes be neglected. When the negligence of property or business owners results in injuries to customers, legal action can be taken.

Pedestrian accidents still happen despite safety improvements

Streets in and around Las Vegas, Nevada have become incredibly dangerous. Pedestrians face unique dangers that may not be present to those in vehicles. To prevent pedestrian accidents, both drivers and pedestrians should obey all traffic laws, remain focused and aware of surroundings at all times. Unfortunately, a recent tragic accident in North Las Vegas claimed the life of a pedestrian.

Drunk driver accidents: Driver flees scene of fatal crash

Driving under the influence of alcohol is not only incredibly irresponsible and dangerous, it is also the cause of thousands of deaths every year across the country.  In Nevada, drunk driving remains a major concern and police forces have stepped up efforts to prevent drunk driver accidents. Unfortunately, there will always be drivers who choose to get behind the wheel while intoxicated.
