Car accidents can happen almost anywhere in Nevada, but they often occur with some frequency when drivers behave negligently during storms and other bad weather. According to a fact sheet from The Weather Channel, weather-related collisions result in more fatalities every year than major weather disasters. In other words, the risk of being injured or killed in a weather-related crash are higher than the injury risks in a serious weather event, such as an earthquake, flood, or a tornado. When there is inclement weather, another driver’s careless or reckless behavior behind the wheel can be catastrophic. If you or someone you love got hurt in a crash caused by a negligent driver in bad weather, you should learn more by speaking with a Nevada weather accident lawyer.
