Few injuries that can be sustained by man have the potential to be as debilitating or life-altering as a spinal cord injury. Spinal cord injuries can happen at work, during a Reno car accident, truck accident or another sudden event that can cause irreparable damage to the spinal cord. Not all spinal cord injuries are due to a person or a third party's negligence, but some are. For those people who believe fault in their injuries or a loved one's spinal cord injury was otherwise avoidable, read on.
Few car accidents are as preventable as those where intoxicated driving is a factor. It is simple: if the operator of a motor vehicle does not consume alcohol, it will not be a factor in causing a car accident. Unfortunately, too many Reno residents do not heed caution when it comes to drinking and driving behaviors. They can, have and will cause unnecessary car accidents and serious injuries to innocent drivers.
Some people aren't aware of the prevalence of fatalities occurring on Nevada roads today. Whether cars are piling up, motorcyclists are being thrown from their bike or trucks wreaking havoc on nearby vehicles, traffic deaths have gotten completely out of control. In the words of the Office of Traffic Safety, there are so many deaths on the roads, "that's sort of an equivalent of a jumbo jet falling out of the sky every week and crashing and killing everyone on board." This is how serious road fatalities have become, and this puts Reno residents, who use these roads, in danger.
Serious car accident injuries happen all the time in Reno, and it is important for people to understand how serious car accident injuries can be.

Sometimes, when a person is on the wrong-end of a car accident with a suspected drunk driver, they aren't so lucky. For those fortunate enough to escape with their life, there are often questions of how a DUI conviction will affect a personal injury suit.
