High-Speed Accidents in Nevada
Speeding can greatly impact the ability of a driver to properly navigate on the roadways. High speeds can make it difficult to control your car, and the distance required to come to a full stop is often increased significantly. This means reaction time is greatly impaired and drivers are less equipped to react to roadway hazards.
A significant portion of serious and deadly car accidents reported each year involve speeding drivers. In 2018 alone, 9,378 people were killed in high-speed accidents. That is an average of 25 people being killed each day. Nearly 26% of deadly car crashes that year were attributable to speeding motorists. After being injured in a Las Vegas auto accident, injured parties should consult with a qualified Nevada personal injury attorney in order to recover the compensation they need to make a full recovery.
