Nevada Personal Injury Lawyers Representing Accident Victims in Crescent Valley
Crescent Valley in Nevada’s Eureka County is quiet, serene, and a great escape for those looking to enjoy a rural life in a desert setting.
Though a bit off the beaten track, Crescent Valley is only a short distance away from the I-80 which connects it to Sparks, Reno, and provides access to Carson City which is just under 300 miles away. It is closest to Elko in the east and Winnemucca to the west.
This unincorporated community is home to just under 400 residents, many of which have children who either attend the local elementary school or travel half an hour or so up the road to Battle Mountain. While almost always a safe trip, auto accidents involving school buses can and do happen, and more often than we’d like.
Protecting the Children and Parents of Crescent Valley
School bus related accidents are particularly tragic as the lives of young ones are often at stake. The good news is that since 2003, only 0.35% of fatal vehicle traffic rashes were school transportation related (an average of 135 fatalities a year).
- Approximately 8% of these fatalities were occupants of the school bus
- 21% were non-occupants (pedestrians, cyclists, etc.)
- 71% were occupants of other vehicles
The fact of it all is that many of these accidents could have been avoided entirely. School bus-related accidents often occur because of one of five reasons:
- The bus driver was fatigued
- The bus driver wasn’t paying attention
- The bus driver (or other drivers on the road) were driving aggressively or recklessly
- One or more drivers were speeding
- The bus (or other vehicles) suffered mechanical failure
Other important factors to take into consideration are whether other drivers involved in the accident were distracted (i.e. texting, eating, had a pet on their lap, etc.), as well as their drug (illegal or legal) and alcoholic intake.
