Fatal Las Vegas Car Accident Claims the Life of One Woman

A 64-year-old woman died from injuries suffered in a car accident. According to a news report on 8newsnow.com, the crash involved two vehicles. Police say a driver was trying to cross 4th Street when a van hit the vehicle. The victim, who was trapped in a car, was transported to a local hospital where she later died from her injuries. The other people involved in the accident suffered relatively minor injuries. This is the 47th fatal car accident in Metro’s jurisdiction in 2012.

Right-of-way laws play an important part when it comes to determining fault and liability in many Las Vegas traffic accidents. Whenever someone has been seriously injured or killed as the result of a car accident that occurred at or near a street intersection, a number of questions must be asked. Who had the right-of-way? Did one of the drivers run a red light or a stop sign, or make an unsafe turning movement?

In cases where driver negligence caused a fatal accident, the family members of the deceased car accident victim can file a wrongful death claim seeking compensation for damages such as medical and funeral costs and lost future wages. An experienced Las Vegas wrongful death attorney can help analyze all aspects of an incident and help hold the negligent parties accountable.
