What Types of Car Accidents Can A High Stakes Injury Lawyer Help Me With?

Side-Impact Accidents

Side-impact collisions often occur at intersections and can cause severe injuries due to the lack of protection on the sides of a vehicle. Our attorneys have a deep understanding of Nevada traffic laws. They will fight tirelessly to hold the responsible party accountable for their actions.

Head-On Collisions

Head-on collisions are devastating, often resulting in catastrophic injuries, and in worst-case scenarios, death. Our car accident lawyers in Las Vegas are well-versed in handling these complex cases. They will work to investigate the cause of the accident, gather evidence, and fight for maximum compensation on your behalf.

Hit-and-Run Accidents

A hit-and-run accident is not only physically and emotionally traumatic, but it can also make seeking compensation seem impossible. Our team has experience working with insurance companies and navigating these atrocious circumstances to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.

DUI/DWI Accidents

If an auto accident caused by a drunk or impaired driver injures you, our team will work tirelessly to hold them accountable for their actions and seek justice on your behalf.

Backing accidents, where a vehicle backs into another vehicle or object, can cause significant damage and injury. Our personal injury attorneys in Las Vegas will work to prove the other driver’s negligence and seek full compensation for all damages incurred.

Fatal Crashes

Losing a loved one in a motor vehicle accident is a tragedy that no family should have to endure. Our compassionate Las Vegas car accident attorneys will handle all legal aspects of your case while you focus on healing and grieving. 

What Causes Car Accidents in Las Vegas?

No matter the type of motor vehicle accident, the root cause is often negligence or carelessness on the part of one or more drivers, including:

  • Distracted driving. Texting, talking on the phone, eating, or adjusting the radio while driving, can cause a driver to lose focus and cause an accident. Our attorneys understand how to prove fault in these cases and seek maximum compensation for your losses.
  • Speeding. Exceeding the speed limit or driving too fast for weather or road conditions can result in serious accidents. Our attorneys will investigate all factors involved in the accident to determine if speeding played a role and will fight aggressively to hold the responsible driver accountable.
  • Reckless driving. Dangerous behaviors such as tailgating, aggressive lane changes, and running red lights can lead to catastrophic accidents. Our team is experienced in handling reckless driving cases and will work tirelessly to secure fair compensation for all damages.
  • Driving under the influence. Operating a vehicle while intoxicated is not only illegal but also incredibly dangerous. Our attorneys have a deep understanding of DUI laws and how to hold impaired drivers accountable for any accidents they cause.
  • Vehicle malfunctions. Sometimes, accidents are caused by vehicle malfunctions, such as tire blowouts or brake failures. Our team will thoroughly investigate all possible causes of the accident, including any potential vehicle defects, to determine liability and fight for fair compensation.

You should never assume you are the cause of a car crash. Let a Las Vegas car accident lawyer from High Stakes Injury Law work to prove who is actually at fault so that you can recover maximum compensation for accident injuries and losses.

Where Do Car Accidents Happen in Las Vegas?


Driver confusion, distractions, and failure to follow traffic signals can all contribute to intersection accidents.

The most common intersections for car crashes in Las Vegas include:

  • Sahara Avenue and Valley View Boulevard
  • Charleston Boulevard and Nellis Boulevard
  • Tropicana Avenue and Paradise Boulevard
  • Flamingo Avenue and Las Vegas Boulevard
  • Charleston Boulevard and Decatur Boulevard

These intersections regularly see heavy traffic and, unfortunately, have a high rate of rear-end, side-impact, and pedestrian accidents.


Consistently flooded with commuter, trucking, and tourist traffic, Las Vegas highways are often the site of catastrophic car collisions.

The most dangerous highways in and around Las Vegas include:

  • I-15, especially near Sahara Avenue and Flamingo Road
  • U.S. 95, particularly near Summerlin Parkway and Main Street
  • The 215 Beltway in Henderson and Summerlin

These highways have high speed limits and heavy traffic flow, making them prone to severe rollovers and multi-vehicle accidents.

Tourist Areas

The Las Vegas Strip and surrounding tourist areas attract millions of visitors each year, leading to many car accidents.

With crowded streets, aggressive drivers, and distracted pedestrians, some common areas for accidents include:

  • Las Vegas Boulevard between Sahara Avenue and Tropicana Avenue
  • Fremont Street in downtown Las Vegas
  • Major hotel valet areas such as Caesars Palace or the Bellagio

These areas are notorious for fender benders, pedestrian collisions, and crashes due to congestion and driver distractions.

Parking Lots

In a city with such heavy traffic, parking lots and garages can be just as dangerous as the roads.

Poorly marked lanes, careless drivers, and limited visibility can all lead to accidents in parking structures at popular locations like:

  • The Fashion Show Mall
  • The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace
  • McCarran International Airport

Accidents in parking lots may seem minor, but they can still result in significant damage and injury, especially when distracted, intoxicated, or reckless drivers are behind the wheel.

City Streets

While not as heavily traveled as highways or tourist areas, city streets in Las Vegas still see their fair share of car accidents.

The roads with the most frequent rates of collisions in Las Vegas include:

  • Flamingo Road, particularly near Maryland Parkway and Fort Apache Road
  • Sahara Avenue between Eastern Avenue and Rainbow Boulevard
  • Charleston Boulevard from Las Vegas Boulevard to the 215 Beltway

Accidents on these streets often involve speeding, distracted driving, and failure to follow traffic signals or laws.

Residential Neighborhoods

Tourists may forget that Las Vegas is more than just the Strip and downtown area, but many call this bustling city home. Unfortunately, residential neighborhoods are not immune to accidents either.

The most common residential areas for accidents include:

  • Summerlin, particularly on roads such as Town Center Drive and Charleston Boulevard
  • Henderson, with frequent crashes on Green Valley Parkway and Sunset Road
  • North Las Vegas suburbs like Aliante Parkway and Centennial Parkway

Accidents in these areas can be caused by many factors, including speeding, distracted driving, and failure to yield at stop signs or crosswalks.

How Much Is My Las Vegas Car Accident Case Worth?

Valuing damages in an accident isn’t easy.

However, with the help of a Las Vegas car accident attorney from High Stakes Injury Law, you may recover compensation for:

  • Upfront medical costs. EMS services average $2,500+ in Las Vegas. In-patient visits often cost over $30,000. Trust a Las Vegas car accident lawyer from High Stakes Injury Law to accurately value your medical costs so that you don’t suffer financially at any point during recovery.
  • Ongoing medical care. Accidents resulting in spinal cord damage, traumatic brain injuries, and broken bones can rack up ongoing medical costs that exceed $2 million over a lifetime. Our experienced attorneys work with medical experts to help estimate your long-term care needs and seek compensation for these expenses.
  • Lost wages. If you miss time from work due to injuries sustained in an accident, we can help you pursue compensation for lost wages. Whether you miss a few days or cannot return to work permanently, we will fight for fair compensation for any income you have lost.
  • Pain and suffering. Physical injuries are not the only damages that can result from a car accident. Emotional distress, anxiety, and loss of enjoyment of life all fall under pain and suffering. Our team will help determine the value of these intangible damages and fight for fair compensation.
  • Emotional distress. Being involved in an auto accident can be traumatic, resulting in anxiety, depression, PTSD, and other emotional distress. With high hourly rates for treatment, accident victims can pursue the tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars that may be required to cover treatments.

No matter your damages or losses, our High Stakes Injury Law team is dedicated to fighting for your rights and the maximum compensation possible. 

Don’t have the money to cover our services or initial medical expenses? Not a problem. We can help you find a doctor who will take payment after your case settles.
