Man arrested weeks after hit and run accident

According to a recent report, a man is facing felony charges on account of his involvement in a hit and run accident in Reno. The accident left a pedestrian dead. Allegedly, the driver who was recently arrested struck the pedestrian with his car and then left the scene of the incident.

A bad faith claim can level the playing field for victims

When someone has been hurt or, for that matter, was expecting their insurance company to cover them if they accidentally hurt someone else, it can seem in some situations that the insurance company has all the power. Because they have to be well-financed in order to conduct their business, it means that insurance companies have a lot of bargaining power. Moreover, it is a simple fact that insurance companies make money by not paying claims or paying as little as possible. As such, it can be tempting, and easy, for an insurer to take advantage of a legitimate victim.

Hit-and-run accident leaves pedestrian injured

A serious accident occurred in the eastern part of Reno and has left a man clinging to life. The devastating incident happened at the intersection of Sixth Street and Valley Road in the early hours of the morning. The man was discovered in the roadway with significant injuries to his face and head. He was taken to the hospital and it is reported that he is in critical condition.

What is comparative negligence?

Accidents between vehicles on Nevada roads often occur because of negligence. Negligence is the failure of a person to exercise reasonable care under the circumstances. When it comes to driving, reasonable care may involve avoiding driving distractions, following traffic signage and laws, and maintaining one's calm when conditions are challenging.

What is whiplash and why is it a common car accident injury?

The injuries that Reno residents may sustain in a vehicle accident can range from minor contusions or bruising to life-threatening organ damage and bleeding. One factor that can make vehicle accident injuries quite troublesome is the fact that some do not manifest for hours or even days after the victim was involved in a collision. For example, the pain and stiffness of whiplash may not appear as symptoms of a victim's injury until after they have woken up the day after their car accident.

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.
