After a car accident associated with serious injuries, many victims have questions about their rights. If the other driver involved in the accident was at fault, the affected party could be eligible for compensation for their injuries. It is important to understand the facts of the accident in order to accuse someone of fault. Car accidents are typically governed by the rules of negligence, however in cases of reckless driving, if the accused can prove evidence of reckless or aggressive driving, negligence need not be proved.
Car accidents involving two vehicles can be scary. These accidents are not as terrifying as those between a vehicle and a pedestrian. These types of accidents happen and can cause serious injuries or even death. A Nevada resident was allegedly struck and seriously injured by a drunk driver while pushing his bicycle across Flamingo Road, in Las Vegas.
The terrifying thing about impaired drivers is that they could be anywhere at any time. Even if people are the safest driver on the road and aware of their surroundings, they can still become involved in a drunk driving accident. These accidents sometimes cause serious injuries to the sober driver involved in the accident. An event like this happened last week on Nevada's Jones Boulevard where a man was rushed to the hospital after a car crash involving a suspected drunk driver.
Bicyclists are becoming more and more common on Nevada's roadways. Some people like the exercise of riding, some may be trying to beat gas prices and others just enjoy riding a bike. Drivers in other vehicles must share the road with bicyclists. Sometimes, however, accidents happen between bicyclists and vehicles, which usually end in serious injuries or even death for the bicyclist. Such was the case when a vehicle recently struck and killed a bicyclist near Las Vegas Boulevard.
