There have been a slew of vehicle accidents in Northern Nevada over the last few days. Many of the accidents have been the predicable, if still terrible, winter weather accidents. We’ve finally seen some precipitation and that means wet road car crashes in Reno and the surrounding area, and snow and ice accidents up in the higher elevations. Mix out of towners into the snowy slushy slurry, and you have the perfect, if that’s the right word, recipe for anything from fender benders to bad rollover crashes in Washoe County, Douglass County, Carson City, and more. Word to the wise, for anyone reading this who isn’t familiar with driving in the snow, rain or ice: four wheel drive will not save you. You can’t lock it into four wheel and then go as fast as you want or normally would. It won’t keep you from sliding off the road if you take a turn too fast, and it doesn’t mean you can stop on a dime. You still have to go slow, and be careful. And if you’re a victim of someone else’s negligence and inability to drive safely in the snow, the next thing you need is a good lawyer like Benson & Bingham Attorneys at Law who can fight for your legal rights and get you the compensation you deserve and need to move on with your life.
But perhaps the most recent car accident near Reno does not appear to be one of these snow accidents. Little is known about this vehicle accident so far. The severity of any injuries, the age, name, or even the sex of the driver of the vehicle has not been released. The vehicle, which has not been described, allegedly hit a tree. There were said to not have been any other vehicles involved. But one thing we learned from a recent Las Vegas car accident is that appearances at first blush are not always what it appears to be. You need a good lawyer on your side, looking out for your interests as any investigation gets moving. Benson & Bingham can find out if the accident was the fault of another person or entity, and get you the compensation you deserve.
