There are times when terrible things tend to happen in succession, and that unfortunately applies to Las Vegas traffic accidents. We posted recently about a Las Vegas motorcycle accident that left a young man dead as a result, and on the following day another Las Vegas motorcycle accident occurred that left another young man critically injured. Police are still investigating the incident and no assignment of fault has yet been made.
According to the authorities, this latest Las Vegas motorcycle accident occurred on Thursday at 9:45 a.m. A 19-year-old man was driving his Harley-Davidson motorcycle in an eastbound direction on Oakley Boulevard when he approached the intersection with Ivanhoe Way. At that point, the driver of a Chevrolet SUV turned into the intersection and the motorcycle collided with it. He was thrown from the vehicle and was critically injured as a result.
First and foremost, we’d like to offer our thoughts and our support for the young man who was critically injured in this Las Vegas motorcycle accident. We hope that he is able to survive the harm he has suffered and recover fully. In addition, this crash will now become part of the overall statistics regarding Nevada motorcycle accidents. Every year, hundreds of people are injured and approximately 50 people are killed in these crashes.
It seems clear the the police investigation regarding this Las Vegas motorcycle accident will come down to the issue of right-of-way. If it turns out that the motorcyclist had the right-of-way, then it could lead to the filing of a Nevada personal injury lawsuit by the young man against the driver of the SUV. A successful claim would lead to an award of damages that compensate him for his losses.
