Henderson Auto Accident Attorneys

Experienced Auto Accident Lawyers in Henderson, Nevada

At Bertoldo, Baker, Carter & Smith, our Henderson, Nevada auto accident attorneys focus on the overall physical, emotional, and financial well-being of our clients after they are injured by the negligence of another driver.

Henderson residents have seen a rise in traffic in their Clark County city thanks to the increased number of restaurants, concert venues, shopping malls, and resorts and casinos that are located in their neighborhoods. Unfortunately, with increased traffic comes more car accidents, and if you become a victim of one of these collisions, our Henderson personal injury attorneys do not want you to face the negligent driver or the insurance company alone.

How Many Traffic Accidents Occur in Nevada Each Year?

Henderson, Nevada is a mere 16 miles southeast of Las Vegas, which, along with the leisure opportunities located within the town, inherently increases the traffic flow in the area.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration lists there were 309 traffic fatalities in the State of Nevada last year alone and hundreds of injuries, ranging from broken bones to severe harm.

Some of the major factors that contributed to these traffic collisions included:

  • Speeding and reckless driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Drowsy driving

According to the NHTSA, distracted driving was the cause of 3,450 deaths across the United States last year, and with the texting and driving habits of motorists becoming all-too-common, those numbers are not expected to decline.

Is It Ever Okay to Text and Drive in Henderson, Nevada?

The Nevada Department of Transportation, it is illegal to talk or text and drive on a handheld device in the State of Nevada. Texting and driving can delay a driver’s reaction time as much as a person who is driving while legally drunk.

The frequency of texting and driving has led to most states banning the use of cellphones behind the wheel. It has been shown that reading or sending a text message takes the driver’s eyes off the road for five whole seconds. If the driver is traveling at 55 miles per hour, that fives seconds equals traveling the length of a football field — with their eyes closed.
