Driving our cars around town is something most of us do multiple times every day. We drive to work, school, stores, activities and back home again. When we get behind the wheel, we use our knowledge of the laws and our driving experience to help us drive safely. We also rely on others to drive safely. Unfortunately, however, our own safety really depends on others’ actions. Even when we are driving safely and obeying the law, it just takes one other driver next to us who is not following the law to change our lives.
Other drivers disobey the law by allowing themselves to be distracted and not pay attention to their driving. While technology has so many benefits, it is causing more and more auto accidents today because people pay more attention to their gadgets than they do peoples’ lives around them. Despite being against the law in Nevada, many drivers are still using their cell phones while driving without a hands-free system. It is especially frustrating for someone to be injured by another driver who is texting, let alone by another driver who is drinking or is high on drugs.
Regardless of how the car accident happens, the life of the innocent driver affected can be seriously changed for the worse. Auto accidents can cause injuries which can range from minor whiplash injuries to broken bones, severe spinal injuries, and even death. Within a matter of seconds, a person can go from living a normal life to living one with pain, anxiety and disability.
Because insurance companies will try to minimize the actions of their insured drivers who were negligent, and thus minimize the effects of the collision on the injured person, it is critical that you hire the right attorney to secure all the compensation you deserve.
