Car Accidents Archives

Speeding can be a factor in dangerous vehicle accidents

Despite their best intentions many Reno residents find themselves running late. Whether they decide to hit the snooze button one too many times or simply lose track of time while getting ready for an event, they can find themselves in the uncomfortable position of having not enough time to get to where they must go. If getting to a location requires them to drive, those individuals who have too far to go and too little time may find themselves tempted to speed.

Changes in weather require changes in careful driving habits

Each winter snow blankets the mountains of the Sierra Nevada range and Reno residents take to the slopes to ski, snowboard and sled on their favorite runs. In order to reach many of the most popular spots, though, individuals must take to the roads and drive through weather-affected areas. For some, transitioning to winter driving is easy as they slow down, take extra precautions and ensure that they are not creating hazards for others. For others, aggressive and dangerous driving on weather-affected roads becomes a perilous problem for everyone near them.

As a victim, what must I prove to win my car accident lawsuit?

Car accidents occur when drivers commit dangerous mistakes during the important task of operating their motor vehicles. Reno residents have been injured and suffered extensive losses to drunk drivers, distracted drivers and drivers who simply failed to acknowledge the conditions present around them and created hazards for others on the roads. It can be a natural step for the victim of a car accident to seek legal recourse against the responsible party or parties so that they may be compensated for what they lost.

Car and bicyclist collide in Reno, cyclist killed

A recent early evening collision caused a Reno-area bicyclist to suffer serious injuries when his bicycle was involved in an accident with a car. The incident occurred shortly after 5 o'clock in the evening and happened near Airway and Garden Homes drives. The victim, a 30-year-old man, was taken to an area hospital where he died from the significant harm he sustained in the crash.

What are common causes of distracted driving car accidents?

Distracted driving can occur when a Reno driver chooses to take his or her attention away from the important task of watching the road and focuses that attention on another person or thing. Certain types of distracted driving can result in the distracted drivers receiving tickets from the law enforcement officials who catch them. More significantly, though, distracted driving is a dangerous practice that can lead to serious and sometimes deadly car accidents.

Wrong way car accident leaves one dead in Nevada

Most Nevada highways are well marked to indicate to drivers where they may permissibly enter and exit the roadways. The signage used serves many purposes, including the protection of drivers from inadvertently driving the wrong way onto busy and high-speed throughways. Traveling at high speeds can be dangerous on its own, but when a driver ends up traveling the wrong way on such a road, the outcome can be deadly.

Subrogation and Nevada car accident victims

Nevadans are generally a hardy lot. Whether it is the old frontier mind-set or just a byproduct of the harsh, but beautiful, environment, Nevada residents tend remain stoic. However, dealing with an insurance company after a serious car accident can have a detrimental effect on even the calmest individual.

There are many possible causes of Nevada car accidents

Nevada residents like their cars. Like many people in the U.S., especially those in Western states, many Nevadans see their motor vehicles as a symbol of freedom and independence. They can also be an extension of a driver's personality, from the sleek, fast sports car, to the dependable battered pick-up truck. Unfortunately, this penchant for hitting the roads comes with a price; with more vehicles driving around, there is a larger chance of a Nevada resident being involved in a car crash.

Hit and run driver allegedly responsible for Nevada accident

In Nevada and around the United States, everyone who uses the public roadways agrees to abide by the traffic laws and the rules of the road. For example, while no physical barrier prevents vehicles from crossing a double yellow line, millions of cars pass each other in opposite directions each day without incident as most people respect the idea that the line represents. Likewise, when an accident does occur, it is understood that those involved stop and exchange information, and possibly cooperate with any investigation required by law enforcement. Sometimes, however, people do not respect the traffic laws, creating a problem for themselves and those affected by their actions.

Compensation for pain and suffering after a Reno car accident

When you think of a car accident, what images come to mind? Twisted metal, emergency vehicles and a road strewn with debris? While all these things may be present after a car accident, many accidents aren't so dramatic. Car accidents happen every day in Reno that may appear minor on the surface, but in reality can cause significant pain and suffering for the victims and their families.
