Personal Injury

Many people who live in or visit Las Vegas get hurt while participating in normal daily activities or on vacation. While slip and fall accidents are probably the first thing that comes to mind, there are actually a number of ways that you might get hurt in Las Vegas:

  • Auto Accidents
  • Food poisoning
  • Falling debris
  • A traffic accident in a parking lot
  • Falling because of jostling in a crowded space
  • Assault and battery from another patron
  • Toxic chemicals
  • Poor sanitation
  • Fall in the shower from inadequate railings
  • Slip and falls

Why Are There So Many Auto Accidents in Las Vegas?

According to a recent report Las Vegas ranked 144 out of 200 cities for driver safety. Las Vegas drivers are 21% more likely to have an accident than the national average and are estimated to have one accident every 8 years. A leading cause of automobile accidents in Las Vegas is driver distraction/inattention. Reasons for driver inattention/distraction include: cell phone usage, eating while driving, passenger distractions and driving with pets in the car.

Another leading cause of accidents in the Las Vegas valley is drunk drivers. With over 8,000 arrests for DUI every year, Las Vegas leads the nation for DUI related accidents. Finally, Las Vegas is arranged in square mile blocks with 6 lane streets at square mile intervals. As a result, Las Vegas has gridlocked streets with stoplights posted every mile which equates to negligent driving resulting in a lot of car accidents.
