Different types of car accidents can foreshadow liability

No two car accidents are exactly the same. This is because there are so many factors that define the car accident. Some of these factors can help to determine who may be liable, or at fault, for the accident. Often both drivers are partially responsible for a car accident, to some degree. However, there are certain types of car accidents that can foreshadow the majority of the responsibility falling on the shoulders of one driver.

Why it's key to establish negligence in a drunk driving accident

If you have been the victim of a car accident caused by a drunk driver, there are a few basic things you should know about your rights. You may have suspicions about the driver's intoxication level being over the legal limit at the time of the crash. However, suspicions are not enough to prove your claim. A full investigation will need to be conducted in order to determine the cause of the suspected drunk driving accident.

How does Blood Alcohol Concentration affect driving ability?

You cannot control the actions and decisions of those around you. However, you can control how you recognize and respond to these decisions. The best way to deal with a car accident with a drunk driver is to prevent it from happening in the first place. One may ask how to avoid such a thing? The Center for Disease control explains how Blood Alcohol Concentration can possibly cause a drunk driving accident that could affect you or a loved one's life forever.

How does liability insurance affect car accidents in Nevada?

After a car accident there are many questions. One of the most important questions is, who is at fault? If another driver directly caused a car accident that resulted in serious injury or damages that driver, or the driver's insurance company, may be liable for damages. Many people involved in car accidents have questions about how car insurance affects the accident.

Nevada bicyclist killed after run-in with 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.

Car driving illegally on shoulder caused Nevada's I-15 wreck

When traffic on the freeway slows, it can be frustrating for the drivers who need to be somewhere at a certain time. Most of the time, traffic jams cannot be avoided and drivers must wait it out until traffic begins to move again. Recently, a driver on Nevada's I-15 had little to no patience, or so it seemed to Highway Patrol. The driver of a Toyota Camry caused a nine car accident that killed the passenger of the Camry.

Proud to Protect Nevadans

It was interesting to see two Lt. Governor candidates toss around the term "personal injury attorney" as a pejorative, especially since one is a lawyer whose website claims to do just that type of work. It's a shame to see a colleague abandon his professional practice for personal political gain. Let's take a look at the type of work our candidates feel isn't good enough for Nevada's citizens:

Nevada doctors required to report drivers' seizures

Currently, Nevada laws can regulate the driving rights of individuals with epilepsy. In fact, doctors in our state are required to report epileptic seizures to the state's Department of Motor Vehicles, and the DMV will revoke the patient's driver's license for a time in an effort to prevent seizure-related auto accidents.

Police: 7 teens involved in rollover; none wore seat belts

Car accidents are the major cause of death for Americans under 30, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In 2009, more than 33,000 people were killed in auto accidents, with another 2.2 million injured. Of those casualties, more than 70 percent occurred in passenger vehicles.

Police: Fernley child killed when hit by drunk driver

Sometimes the most tragic auto accidents do not occur on busy highways but in quiet, residential neighborhoods. That was the case when a 5-year-old Nevada child was killed while riding her tricycle along a sidewalk in Fernley on Jan. 2. The driver who hit the child was taken into custody for felony DUI.
