Common Types of Car Accidents In Las Vegas, NV
Automobile accidents happen far too often in Las Vegas. Each auto accident is unique, and the causes of each may vary. However, when you are involved in a crash that was caused by the negligent or reckless behavior of another driver, under Nevada Law, you can be compensated for your injuries. Below are a few of the most common causes of auto accidents in Las Vegas, NV:
- Distracted Driving: Distracted driving is becoming the leading cause of automobile collisions. In most cases, the driver is distracted by using handheld devices while driving, operating the GPS while driving, talking while driving, eating and drinking while driving, tending to children while driving, texting while driving, and so on.
- Truck Accidents: A collision with a commercial truck can cause serious injury. Truck accidents usually occur when the driver of a semi-truck becomes distracted or fatigued from long stretches of driving. A truck accident crash is considered serious and can sometimes be fatal.
- Rear-end crashes: Rear-end collisions are among the most common type of crash in Las Vegas, NV. Typical reasons for a rear-end collision include driving while distracted, driving while intoxicated, and driving aggressively.
- T-bone crashes: By running a red light, disregarding a stop sign, or failing to yield, t-bone collisions can occur. These types of collisions can cause brain injury, back and spine injuries, broken bones, lacerations, and more. T-bone accidents can also result in a rollover accident, which can result in serious and/or fatal injuries.
- Automobile Manufacturing Defect: Sometimes a collision occurs due to a manufacturer’s defect in an automobile. A prime example would be a previous client of mine whose parking brake went out due to a manufacturing defect. These accidents are typically no fault of the driver and should be addressed immediately.
