Las Vegas Accidents Causing Victim Injuries
According to the Nevada Highway Patrol, drunk or drugged drivers are at blame for the vast majority of fatal automobile accidents in the Silver State. More people were killed or severely wounded in traffic accidents caused by drunk driving than ever before in Nevada in 2013.
Regrettably, there have been twice as many deadly vehicle accidents in Nevada this year. Worse, the number of severe injuries sustained by victims in low-speed incidents has increased significantly during the last several decades.
Seeing a doctor or getting adequate medical treatment straight away is essential if you’ve been in a vehicle accident and suspect that you’ve been injured. Even if your accident was very minor and you only suffered slight muscle pain or other insignificant injuries, there may be underlying problems that don’t have symptoms right now but might pose problems in the future. Car accidents may cause a wide range of injuries, however, the following are some of the more typical ones:
- Vehicles with airbags mounted in the steering wheels, dashes, and other key locations are designed to lessen the severity of injuries to those within when they are involved in an accident. Generally speaking, airbags are fantastic inventions that have saved many people’s lives throughout the years. However, if they malfunction and either fail to inflate after an accident or burst unexpectedly, they may be harmful to those traveling in the vehicle.
- Whiplash is a common result of a rear-end collision caused by a negligent motorist who fails to yield the right of way. Long-term effects of whiplash, a frequent neck injury from car accidents, include persistent pain and discomfort or paralysis.
- Finally, a direct hit to the head during an automobile collision may be very harmful and result in severe brain damage. Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) symptoms include an initially moderate headache that progressively worsens. If left untreated or unmonitored, TBIs may be deadly.
