This means that many people across the state will be involved in a car accident sooner or later. The following are some tips on how a person should proceed following a car crash, particularly if they want to pursue a personal injury lawsuit.

Under Nevada law, it may be possible for someone who is convicted of drunk driving to undergo an alcohol treatment program as part of a suspended sentence. If a person is found guilty of drunk driving, but their blood alcohol content level was under 0.18 percent, prior to sentencing they can apply to the court to enter into an alcohol treatment program for a minimum of six months. The court will allow this if certain elements are met.
