Nevada Car Accidents Involving The Failure To Yield The Right-of-way

Unfortunately, too many drivers make mistakes when it comes to dealing with right-of-way scenarios, and these faulty decisions lead to an enormous number of car accidents. Below you will find a brief overview of the statistics that relate to crashes that are caused in the state because someone failed to yield the right-of-way along with information regarding how many people are injured and killed because of this mistake.


The Nevada Department of Transportation handles many tasks for the people of the state, and one of them involves recording and organizing the statistic relating to Nevada car accidents. One of the most common causes of accidents based on statistics is a failure to yield the right-of-way.

According to the NDOT, nearly 6,400 of these accidents occur across the state every year because someone makes this mistake. In addition, more than 5,000 people are injured in these crashes and nearly 25 people are killed. That means that nearly 10 people per week are injured in these collisions and two people per month lose their lives.


When someone fails to yield the right-of-way and that person causes a crash that leads to serious injuries or worse, that negligent driver can be named as a defendant in a personal injury lawsuit. If that lawsuit comes down in favor of the plaintiff, he or she will be awarded damages that compensate that party for losses incurred.

However, it can be difficult for the parties to know which one of them failed to yield the right-of-way after a crash because these incidents tend to happen so quickly. That's why someone who feels that he or she was wrongly injured in this situation needs to obtain professional help prove that facts of his or her case.
