The majority of Nevada car accidents centered around Clark County, with more than 78 percent, according to a Nevada state traffic accident report that year.

Las Vegas can be a fun place, but driving its streets can be a gamble with your life. The unfortunate truth is that driving is a necessary part of life when visiting or living in Las Vegas. The glitz and flash of Las Vegas can serve as a distraction for drivers, especially for those visiting from other states or countries. It takes a split second for their inattention to cost you a lifetime of pain or even the life of a loved one. Their mistake could mean expensive repairs to your vehicle, endless medical bills, and physical and mental health problems that could end your career.
