Deaths and Injuries Caused by Motor Vehicles in Greater Las Vegas
In 2008, around 37,260 Americans were killed in motor vehicle accidents. However, in 2005 there were 43,500 fatalities associated with automobile accidents. Consequently, thankfully, the frequency of fatal automotive accidents appeared to be decreasing. Similarly, there had been a dramatic drop in automobile-related fatalities in Nevada. Moreover, 240 automobile accidents ending in deaths occurred in Las Vegas in 2009, compared to 430 fatal incidents in 2005.
However, these deadly incidents appear to be on the upswing again, largely due to our 24-hour culture, where drinking and driving at night in Las Vegas seems to be routine. From 2005 to 2008, Las Vegas experienced around 100 to 110 deaths each year involving drivers with a blood alcohol content of above 0.8% (the greatest number was 145 in 2006, and the lowest was 105 in 2008). There were roughly 70 fatalities in 2009, a substantial decline from the previous year.
Despite these grim statistics, there is still a potential that you may be entitled to compensation for any losses you incurred as a result of a collision if it can be shown that the recklessness of another driver caused the incident. The amount of compensation may include lost earnings, future earning potential, pain and suffering, disability benefits, lost income, and out-of-pocket medical expenditures.
