What is negligence in a Las Vegas car accident?

Las Vegas residents know about distractions. In a city with a thousand different things to do, keeping focused on any one task can be difficult. However, that is exactly how people need to drive, especially in the congested confines of an urban area. Unfortunately, temptation gets the best of many people, and distracted drivers cause accidents that result in injuries to others. When this occurs, there may be a way for the injured party to receive compensation from the negligent driver.

What is a "common carrier" in Nevada?

Las Vegas is a popular destination for many tourists. People come from all over the country, and indeed the world, for various activities the city has to offer. Whether it is for a vacation, or a conference or another event hosted in the city, many of these individuals do not bring their private vehicles. That means that when coming to Las Vegas, as well as getting around to the city's various venues, most people are using some form of "common carrier."

Nevada car accident statistics

Traffic accidents are a fact of life in the modern United States. With so many cars and trucks on the road, the country's roadways are increasingly under pressure and the older infrastructure created decades ago can be seen to be deteriorating. In states like Nevada, where getting from place to place is very dependent on the use of private vehicles, car and truck crashes continue to be a significant cost to both individuals and the public at large, in Las Vegas and around the state.

What is vicarious liability in car accidents?

Let's say you're driving along a Las Vegas street, and begin making a left turn at an intersection with a green light. Suddenly, a truck comes barreling down the street and hits your car, broadside. Your car is totaled, and you are likely to be seriously injured. Unfortunately, after paying medical bills and going through rehabilitation, while missing months of work, you find out that the truck driver who hit you is broke. Are you completely out of luck in terms of recouping any compensation?
