Car Accidents in Las Vegas
Many people are out on the road driving cars every day, causing streets to become very busy. Unfortunately, things do not always go as planned on the road and car accidents can happen. Some accidents are minor and cause little to no injuries. In other cases, accidents can be more severe and cause major injuries as well as possibly death. Car accidents have the power to change lives forever, leaving people stuck in physical, financial, and emotional disaster. It is important to contact an experienced attorney if you or a loved one has been seriously injured as the fault of another driver.
Every driver getting behind the wheel of a car should be in full control of themselves and give the road their undivided attention. If a driver does not do this, car accidents may occur as a result of several things. They can sometimes just be a result of bad road conditions. Other times they happen because of poor driving decisions. Some dangerous factors in car accidents may include:
- Texting while driving
- Using other electronic devices while driving
- Disregarding traffic signs/signals
- Drunk/drugged driving
- Excessive speeding/reckless driving
- Driving distracted
- Driving tired
When a driver does not follow the safety rules of the road, they can cause harm to themselves or other drivers. If poor driving behaviors cause an injury to someone else on the road, that driver may be held responsible for negligence. When an individual is injured and wishes to hold another driver responsible, they must provide what is called the “burden of proof.” This requires the injured party to find evidence of the other party’s negligence. This requires the evidence to prove that the accident and the injuries sustained were a direct result of that party’s neglect on the road. Evidence may consist of the police report, any medical documentation of your injury, pictures/videos of the accident, or any witnesses.
