An accident can happen anywhere, leaving those involved with serious injuries. But while the prevalence of accidents may not be location dependent, statistics show that intersections can be especially dangerous for two reasons: there is a higher risk of an accident occurring within an intersection and a higher risk of the damages from that accident being severe. At Naqvi Injury Law, we’ve put together an infographic that explains everything you need to know about intersection accidents, including the location of the most dangerous intersection in Las Vegas, the most common causes of intersection accidents, things that contribute to intersection accidents, and some general crash statistics.

Distracted Driving – An Especially Dangerous and Growing Problem in Las Vegas
The rate of distracted driving-related accidents is growing. A survey conducted by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety found that nearly nine of 10 drivers surveyed agreed that distracted driving is on the rise. Distracted driving is most often the result of using a mobile device when behind the wheel, but can also be caused by looking down from the road; changing the music; eating or drinking; tending to passengers, small children, or pets; or self-grooming.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that distracted driving is involved in approximately 10 percent of fatal accidents and injured more than 430,000 people in a single year.
It’s not just dangerous intersections and distracted drivers that you need to be on the lookout for – annual global road crash statistics suggest that by 2030, traffic injuries are predicted to be the 5th leading cause of death. Today, there are already over a million people who are killed in traffic accidents each year, and tens of billions of dollars spent on crash-related expenses. Today, auto accidents are the 9th leading cause of death.
Practicing safe driving techniques when operating a motor vehicle is important. Slow down, drive sober and only when well-rested, and limit distractions. Unfortunately, while you may be the safest driver around, it can be impossible to predict the negligent actions of others on the road.
