Las Vegas Accidents Caused by Hit-Skip Motorists

Las Vegas, NV - Hit-and-Run on Jones Blvd at Grand Teton Dr at I-15 Injures VictimsAn estimated 39,500 or more automobile crashes occur yearly in the state, with hit-skip or hit-and-run drivers accounting for a disproportionately high percentage of these incidents. A substantial number of motorists leave the scene of an accident in order to protect themselves. This sadly signifies that someone else will bear responsibility for the issue’s conclusion. A recent study has shown, based on state-level data, that Nevada has one of the highest rates of deadly hit-and-run occurrences in the United States.

In addition, according to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, a hit-and-run happens every minute somewhere in the United States. As the number of hit-and-runs rises, Nevadans are becoming more concerned about the state’s chronic traffic congestion. In 2016, an all-time record of over 2,000 people was killed in accidents, a 74 percent increase from 2015. In 2009, 1,300 deaths were attributable to the same cause. This signifies an increase in the frequency and severity of occurrences.

A car accident victim’s suffering is aggravated by escalating medical costs and the uncertainty of their eventual recovery time, which may take several weeks or more. If no one assists or offers information after an accident, the victim may be in a far more risky scenario.
