Why Is An Attorney Necessary For a Fatal Car Accident Case?

Fatal car accidents can become very complicated. The job of your attorney is to prove the other party’s liability so that your family can have closure and secure compensation for your loss. Working with law enforcement, your car accident attorney will:

  • Gather evidence from the crash, including accident reports, eyewitness statements, photograph and video evidence from the scene comma, and more.
  • Obtain your loved one’s medical records and autopsy reports to show the extent of their injuries and suffering.
  • Negotiate with insurers on your behalf to obtain a fair wrongful death settlement.

How Often Do Fatal Accidents Occur?

Using data from the Nevada Department of Transportation, we can see that there were 330 fatal car crashes in the state during the latest reporting year. In our area over the last few years, there have been over 100,000 total vehicle crashes and hundreds of those resulted in fatalities.

Using data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), we can see that some of the leading causes of fatal crashes in Nevada include:

  • Alcohol-impaired drivers, who were responsible for over 26% of all fatal crashes in 2018.
  • Speeding drivers, who were responsible for nearly 28% or all fatal crashes in 2018.
  • Distracted drivers who are often looking at their phones to text, use the navigation system, or browse the internet.

If another driver’s negligence leads to a traffic fatality, they should be held accountable for their actions.
