According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), pedestrians are among the most vulnerable on American roadways. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that an estimated 76,000 pedestrians were seriously injured in auto accidents in 2012, and approximately 5,000 lost their lives. Within the next 24 hours, approximately 450 pedestrians will be treated in hospital emergency rooms in the United States for auto accident related injuries, and in the next hour, one person will die. Unfortunately, that number keeps going up, and the State of Nevada is not immune.
Sharing the road with tractor trailers can leave Nevada drivers facing a significant risk of accidents. These massive vehicles dramatically outweigh passenger vehicles, and they are less responsive to driver input in emergency situations. Many of these issues are compounded when tractor trailers are overloaded, as any Las Vegas truck accident attorney would agree.

Families place an incredible amount of trust in those who take care of their elderly relatives. In many cases, nursing homes are the best choice for certain people to be able to receive the constant care that they need. Despite their legal and ethical requirement to keep their elderly patients safe and with a high quality of life, the American Association of Retired People reports that many of the nation’s nursing homes are using antipsychotics as a means of controlling patients. A personal injury lawyer in Las Vegas knows that this illegal practice often results in disaster for patients and their families.
In 2012 in the U.S. alone over 33,500 people were killed in serious car accidents. Another 2,362,000 were injured in these crashes. These numbers, reported by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, saw an increase of 3.3 percent for fatalities and 6.5 percent for injuries since just 2011, and the numbers are still rising.
