Distracted Drivers Keep Car Accident Lawyers in Las Vegas Busy
Car accident lawyers in Las Vegas meet with accident victims on a daily basis. Many of those accidents are due to the thoughtless acts of distracted drivers. Even though texting while driving is no longer legal in the state of Nevada, some drivers fail to obey laws and the consequences are often devastating.
The Distracted Driver Law banning all handheld cell phone use while driving went into effect in October 2011. This makes Nevada the 34th state in the nation to prohibit individuals from texting while operating a motor vehicle.
Most people do not realize how much distance a car covers while their attention is distracted for even a second or two. An accident can occur in an instant and anytime the driver’s focus is somewhere other than the road, the risk of something going wrong increases.
Accident victims should consult with a qualified attorney to protect their rights to collect fair compensation for their injuries. Experienced lawyers have the expertise needed to negotiate with insurance carriers and represent clients in court when necessary.
A lawyer may be able to help victims receive compensation for:
- Medical expenses
- Lost income during recovery
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering
