The Breathalyzer’s New Crime-Fighting Partner: The “Textalyzer”

By Breyer Law Offices on June 20, 2017

The “textalyzer” is currently being tested throughout the United States, right now in Nashville, and is making its way through state legislatures.

If passed by the legislature, this new tool would allow law enforcement to plug in to your phone (without a warrant) and do a scan of your recent text history to see if you were texting while driving. Texting while driving is currently illegal in many cities—but it can be very difficult to prove.  Read the rest »

Las Vegas Car Accidents Involving Out-of-State Drivers

By Breyer Law Offices on June 12, 2017

Las Vegas is considered a pretty dangerous city when it comes to car accidents. The intersection at Charleston and Lamb has been, unofficially, the most dangerous in Las Vegas for the past several years, but recently Tropicana and most of its cross-roads have been making their way to the top of the list.

Car accidents may be common among residents in these areas, but when they involve out-of-state drivers, everything becomes more complicated.

Are Las Vegas Motorists Among the Nation’s Best Drivers?

By Breyer Law Offices on June 5, 2017

Nearly ten years ago, Nevada was considered one of the worst states to drive in, racking up major accidents every year. But times are changing and today Nevada is considered one of the safer places to drive in the nation.

Las Vegas, however, still has some work to do along its main highways and freeways, particularly the Las Vegas Beltway and the stretch of I-15 that runs through the city. This highway in particular is still considered one of the deadliest roads in the entire country.

Can Mothers Seek Compensation for Unborn Babies Injured in a Car Crash?

By Breyer Law Offices on May 25, 2017

Pregnant women spend nine months trying to protect their unborn child to the best of their ability. Generally they eat well, exercise lightly, and stay away from substances like alcohol and tobacco that can harm their unborn baby. But protecting an unborn child from a car accident is much more difficult.

A mother’s womb is a very delicate place. When anything happens to disturb the fetus inside, the death of the child is too often a result. This is especially common in car accidents, where the baby can be aggressively knocked around or external forces can crush the stomach.

What happens when a pregnant woman is in a car accident in Arizona? Can she seek compensation for her injuries, as well as those to her unborn child? Oh yes, she can.

By Breyer Law Offices on March 17, 2017

An Arizona wrong-way car crash is what happens when one driver travels the wrong side of the road, hitting another vehicle, stationary object, or pedestrian. The fault in these crashes seems obvious, but when you’re injured due to a wrong-way driver, believing that simply isn’t good enough.
It’s important to know exactly what happened and why it happened so that you can work with your attorney to make sure the right people are held accountable for their role in your accident and injuries. Common reasons drivers end up involved in wrong-way collisions include, but are not limited to, the following:

Put the Phones Away, Driving and Snapchat Just Don’t Mix!

By Breyer Law Offices on January 3, 2017

It’s fairly common knowledge that excessive speed and texting are two of the biggest causes of car accidents on the roads. But while nearly every road in the United States has a posted speed limit, there are still states that don’t have any regulations over texting while driving. Arizona is one of these, and it’s not only surprising to many, it’s appalling. While the dangers of texting and driving have been known nearly as long as cell phones have, it’s perhaps never been showcased more than in a recent Florida case.

New Year’s Safety Resolutions – Slow Down in 2017 and Make the Road Safer for Everyone

By Breyer Law Offices on January 1, 2017

Arizona Teen Driver StatisticsRoad safety should be of the utmost importance to every motorist on the road, and that includes things like speeding. But over the holidays, it can be easy to forget about the odometer while racing off to holiday parties or to visit family.

Most cases of speeding this holiday season will result in civil speeding tickets. These are the tickets that almost everyone receives at some point in their lives. They’re fairly minor offenses and so are their penalties. However, when excessive speed is the problem, especially when that speed is in a specific area such as a school zone, the charges turn more serious because the damage could be much more severe.

How to Avoid a Distracted Driving Accident

By Breyer Law Offices on December 28, 2016

Being involved in a serious car accident could change your life, and not for the better. For many victims, life after an accident will never be the same and getting the help you need to move on and make a full recovery isn’t as simple or as fair as it should be. That’s why prevention of accidents is critical, especially when it comes to distracted driving. Although you can’t control what other drivers are doing on the road, you can control your own actions. And what you do, or don’t do, could very well keep you from being involved in an accident.
