Las Vegas Accidents During Coronavirus Pandemic
Accidents, as well as accident-related injuries and accident-related deaths have decreased nationwide during nationwide stay-at-home orders and quarantine due to Coronavirus. There are far fewer drivers on the ride, and the decrease in accidents is a silver lining in the difficult time.
However, open roads also mean an increase in speeding drivers. Open roads combined with people feeling “cooped up” dealing with frustrating personal situations such as income losses and job furloughs is leading to an increase in road rage and speed-related crashes.
Note: If you are involved in an accident, do not delay in seeking medical attention. This is important both for your personal well-being and your medical record. A record of your treatment and diagnostic testing is an important part of your personal injury claim down the line. Without evidence of seeking medical treatment, the insurance company may dispute the seriousness of your injuries.
