In 2010, Allstate Insurance declared Las Vegas one of the most dangerous places to drive in the United States.
Since then, there’s been slight improvement – but motorists still need to be alert. Some of the factors contributing to traffic dangers include population density, a growing number of freelance drivers and irresponsible drinking. More than 7,700 Las Vegas DUI arrests took place in 2012.
Every year, drivers who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol cause hundreds of accidents. In 2015 alone, nearly 14,500 people were arrested in Nevada on suspicion of DUI. That’s an alarming statistic for anyone who has seen the devastating effects a drunk driver can have on a family.
Many of these drunk-driving accidents result in serious injury or death. According to Responsibility.org, alcohol-impaired driving fatalities accounted for 29 percent of the total vehicle traffic fatalities in 2015. Although measures are being taken to mitigate these accidents and fatalities, lives are still being affected by the carelessness of drunk drivers. If you or a loved one has been a victim of such negligence, we can help.

A Las Vegas DUI accident lawyer is essential if you’ve been harmed through another person’s decision to drink and drive. According to Nevada DUI laws, you may have a valid DUI accident lawsuit if the other driver’s Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) was 0.08 percent or higher.
For some people, this can be as few as two drinks. Youths and commercial drivers are held to even stricter standards – 0.02 percent for youths and 0.04 percent for those operating a commercial vehicle, such as a taxi, big rig or semi-truck.
In the U.S., a semi-truck can weigh up to 80,000 pounds – the equivalent of 20 passenger cars. Semi-truck accidents often lead to life-long injury when they are not fatal. To secure the money you may be entitled to, legal representation is a must.
Las Vegas has one of the largest taxi fleets in the world – more than 3,000 vehicles. While many drivers are safe and professional, they have been joined by thousands of amateurs using apps like Uber. A DUI accident attorney helps hold drivers responsible if they drive unsafely.
An alcohol-related accident can happen any time of the day or night. Even if you are as careful as you can be, there is no guarantee other drivers will be. You may even be struck by a vehicle while acting as a pedestrian or using public transportation.
In the last 10 years, Powell Law Firm has settled cases and collected trial verdicts with a total value of nearly $200 million. More than 50 cases involved amounts exceeding $1 million. Many of these court victories were on behalf of traffic accident victims like you.
