Car Accidents in Nevada
Nevada has been seeing an increase in car accidents over the years. Though many of these accidents are deemed minor fender-benders, others are incredibly catastrophic and cause extensive harm when they occur. In 2022, it was reported that a total of 51,664 car accidents took place in Nevada, with about 18,675 leading to serious injuries in those involved. Car accidents happen everywhere in Nevada but highways are some of the most common places for harm. Drivers are not always paying close attention to the roads around them in these areas, which means that car accidents are more likely to occur.
