Las Vegas Hit-and-Run Car Accidents
Hit-and-run motorists are responsible for a large portion of Nevada’s 40,000 yearly vehicle accidents. Sadly, a considerable share of these motorists escape the scene of an accident for their own safety or to avoid citations and charges, leaving others to cope with the aftermath. According to a recent report, Nevada has one of the highest rates of deadly hit-and-run accidents in the United States.
In addition, estimates provided by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety indicate that hit-and-run accidents occur on U.S. highways around once every minute, making this number even more disturbing. These statistics, along with the recent increase in hit-and-run incidents in Nevada, raise grave worries about the state’s current traffic condition. In 2016, more than 2,050 persons died as a consequence of these incidents, the highest number ever recorded and a nearly 70% increase over 2015. Furthermore, roughly 1,370 individuals were killed as a direct consequence of these tragedies in 2009, indicating that the frequency and severity of these accidents are only growing.
Car accident victims endure not only physical but also emotional challenges, including growing medical expenses and a recuperation period that may take several weeks. If the person who caused the accident flees without assisting the victim or providing information, the victim’s position may become even more tenuous and downright treacherous. In light of these facts, any victim wounded in a hit-and-run accident in Las Vegas should call a personal injury attorney immediately.
