When people get behind the wheel of a vehicle, they need to be ready for any number of unexpected events that will require them to make a defensive maneuver. This includes a hazard in a road that may require people to either slow down or stop. Unfortunately, it seems that a hazard that caused a vehicle to stop was not noticed by another driver, and as a result two women were critically injured in a Las Vegas car accident yesterday.
According to the authorities, this Las Vegas car accident occurred yesterday morning just after 5 a.m. Two women, who are 28 and 30 years old respectively, were driving in a sedan in a westbound direction on Sahara Avenue near 17th Street. They encountered a road hazard and stopped in the middle lane. Unfortunately, a driver in a cargo van who was trailing them did not see them stop and rear-ended them. Both women in the vehicle were critically injured as a result of the crash.
First and foremost, we’d like to offer our hopes and our thoughts that the women who were critically injured in this Las Vegas car accident are able to recover from the harm they have suffered. In addition, this crash will now become part of the overall statistics regarding Nevada car accidents. Every year, thousands of people are injured and nearly 400 people are killed in these occurrences.
It seems that more information would be necessary before fault could be definitively assigned in this Las Vegas car accident, but if it turns out that the van driver was at fault, it could lead to the filing of a Nevada personal injury lawsuit against that party. If such a lawsuit is filed and it’s successful, it could lead to an award of damages that compensate them for their medical costs, their lost income and their pain and suffering.
