As many Reno residents know all too well, anything can happen out on roads and highways today. Statewide, there has been a crack-down on those who choose to drive while intoxicated. However, this has not stopped all intoxicated drivers from getting behind the wheel. If you or a loved one was involved in a car accident caused by a drunk driver, consider what this incident could mean for them long and short term. It may be possible to seek compensation besides the criminal charges often associated with such behavior.
People have a lot on their plate today juggling work, family and anything else that may cross their path on a daily basis. It is somewhat understandable how a person could possibly become distracted or make a poor choice behind the wheel. However, a situation can be understood but a person can still be held liable for negligence if a Reno driver caused a car accident resulting in injuries to an innocent party. Medical bills today are outrageous; if you or a loved one has suffered a familiar-sounding fate consider your options for compensation.
Everyone has been talking about how dangerous texting and driving is. Depending on how fast you are going, a car can travel the length of a football field in a matter of seconds while texting and driving. Think of all the obstacles the car could come into contact with during that distance traveled. This is why texting and driving has come under close scrutiny by Reno drivers -- because of the serious injuries and even deaths associated with the activity.
Car accidents can strike at the least expected moment; many Reno residents have discovered this unfortunate reality. Early on a Monday morning, two vehicles collided that resulted in both drivers sustaining moderate injuries. However, there was one big difference between the two drivers. According to Reno police, one of the drivers is suspected of driving under the influence at the time of the crash.
