Car Accidents in Nevada
Car accidents are one of the leading causes of hospitalizations in the entire state of Nevada. These accidents send hundreds of thousands of victims to the hospital every single year, with many of these victims sustaining serious injuries. Some of the most common causes of accidents include distracted driving, drunk driving, speeding, and more.
