Auto Accidents in Skyland
Car accidents are one of the most common accidents in the country. Each year, about 40,000 Americans died in car crashes with another 6 million suffering serious injuries. In Nevada, there are about 300 fatal accidents every year.
Car accidents happen for a number of reasons with one of the biggest being distracted driving. The second biggest is driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Other reasons auto accidents occur include:

An auto accident can result in death. If death does not occur, the car accident victim may suffer injuries that will last his or her lifetime.
