Motor Vehicle Accident
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), car crashes and other vehicle-related injuries kill more young adults and children in the U.S. than any other single cause. Over half a million hospitalizations each year are due to car crashes, and more than 40,000 people die in such crashes yearly.
Drunk and Drugged Drivers
Drunk/drugged driving is a major factor in these car crash statistics; nearly 40% of all traffic-related deaths are alcohol-related, and about a fifth involve marijuana, cocaine or another drug. In Nevada and all other states, it’s illegal to drive with a blood alcohol content of 0.08% or higher.
If You’ve Been Hurt in a Car Crash
Being in a traffic accident can affect your life in many ways. The severity of injuries and property damage is a major factor. Vehicles that have been damaged can be repaired or replaced, but when humans have been hurt in a car crash, it’s not as easy to bring life back to normal.
Compensation for Losses
Individuals who have been injured in a car crash may be eligible to receive financial compensation from the party found to be liable for the crash, for losses such as:
- Medical bills – e.g., emergency room, surgery, hospital costs
- Loss of wages or income from missing work
- Permanent loss of ability to work
- Disfigurement and/or disability
- In cases involving fatalities, funeral and burial costs
- Loss of a loved one’s companionship
