Las Vegas Hit-and-Run Automobile Crashes
The 40,000 car accidents that occur in Nevada each year are mostly caused by hit-and-run drivers. Unfortunately, many of these drivers leave the scene of an accident out of fear for their personal safety or to escape being caught and facing prosecution, leaving others to cope with the fallout. According to a recent assessment, Nevada has one of the highest deadly hit-and-run rates in the United States. As if that weren’t bad enough, the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety estimates that a hit-and-run occurs somewhere in the United States every minute.
Together with the recent surge in hit-and-run instances in Nevada, these data raise considerable worries about the state’s current traffic conditions. This year’s death toll from natural disasters was the highest ever recorded at 2,050 persons, a 72 percent increase over 2015. Also in 2009, 1,370 persons were killed in similar accidents, which shows that both the frequency and severity are on the rise. In addition to the physical pain, automobile accident victims must deal with the stress of mounting medical bills and a lengthy healing process that might last several weeks.
