Accidents can happen anytime and anywhere, but when they occur due to negligence or recklessness, the consequences are especially devastating. In Reno, Nevada, personal injury cases often arise from a variety of common accidents.
By understanding the causes of these incidents, residents and visitors can take the necessary precautions to protect themselves and seek appropriate legal assistance. Below are some of the most common accidents that lead to personal injury cases in Reno. If you suffered injuries, consult with our injury team at Kidwell & Gallagher today.
Car accidents are a leading cause of personal injury cases in Reno, as they are across the country. Distracted driving, speeding, and driving under the influence all contribute to these often-unexpected incidents.
Victims may suffer from severe injuries, extensive property damage, and financial burdens resulting from medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
Semi-trucks and 18-wheelers often contribute to severe injuries and fatalities as well.
While a semi-truck refers to a tractor or truck containing an engine, an 18-wheeler refers to a semi-truck with an attached semi-trailer. If the semi-truck is pulling a semi-trailer, the accident can turn into a multiple-auto pile-up.
Slip and fall accidents can happen anywhere – from grocery stores and restaurants to hotels and casinos to public sidewalks. When property owners fail to maintain safe conditions or adequately warn visitors of hazards, they are held liable for these oversights.
Slip and fall injuries can range from minor bruises to serious fractures, head trauma, or spinal column injury. In any of these cases, it’s important to learn more about your rights to seek compensation by speaking to an attorney.
Dog bites are another common source of personal injury cases in Reno.
However, the state does not have a dog bite statute. Therefore, dog bite victims may recover compensation under one of several doctrines – negligence, negligence per se, or scienter, or strict liability under the one bite rule.
Despite efforts to improve pedestrian safety in Reno, accidents continue to occur when motorists fail to yield the right-of-way or engage in reckless driving. Pedestrian accident victims typically suffer severe injuries due to their vulnerability with respect to the size and speed of an oncoming auto.
With its picturesque landscape and wide-open roads, Reno is a popular destination for motorcycle enthusiasts. Unfortunately, this also means that the city sees its fair share of motorcycle mishaps.
These collisions often lead to severe injuries or fatalities due to a motorcycle’s lack of protection. Drivers also suffer severe injuries or death when they don’t wear their helmets – something that is required in the Silver State.
Workplace accidents are another common cause of personal injury claims in Reno. This is especially true in industries such as construction, manufacturing, and warehousing.
From slip and falls to equipment malfunctions and exposure to toxic substances, employees can suffer from a variety of injuries – some of which may be eligible for workers’ compensation or personal injury claims.
If you or a loved one has been injured in any of the above-listed accidents in Reno, you should receive advice from an experienced personal injury attorney right away.
