Reported Injuries in Las Vegas Automobile Crashes
According to Nevada regulators, intoxicated or drugged drivers are responsible for a significant proportion of automobile-related fatalities. Due to intoxicated driving, the number of individuals killed or badly injured in Nevada traffic accidents reached a record high last year. Additionally, there have been more than twice as many fatal car accidents in Nevada this year compared to the same time in 2020.
If you have been involved in a car accident and suspect you may have been injured, you must see a doctor immediately. Even if you believe your accident was mild and you have merely muscular discomfort or other minor injuries, you may have underlying issues that are now asymptomatic but may worsen significantly in the future. The following list of frequent accident injuries is not exhaustive but covers common ailments experienced by traffic crash victims:
- Inflatable airbags on steering columns, dashboards, and other vehicle components are designed to reduce the severity of injuries sustained in automobile crashes. In general, airbags are remarkable inventions that have saved many lives. However, they may become dangerous if they malfunction, fail to inflate after an accident, or burst for no apparent reason.
- When a careless driver rear-ends another vehicle, the passengers’ bodies resist the action and push the vehicle forward, causing whiplash. This causes neck injuries such as whiplash, which may have long-term consequences such as chronic discomfort or paralysis.
- During a car accident, a blow to the head is very dangerous and may result in serious brain damage. What may seem to be a mild headache at the moment may be an indication of a traumatic brain injury (TBI) that may be deadly if left untreated.
