Multiple vehicles were involved in a Las Vegas car accident that resulted in four people being transported to local hospitals with injuries. According to a Fox 5 news report, the injury accident occurred on Pecos Road near West Tropicana Avenue in Las Vegas. A news report by My News 3 states that the driver of a motor home rear-ended a vehicle starting a chain-reaction crash involving five vehicles. Officials have not released information regarding the extent of the injuries suffered by the victims. It is not clear if the driver of the motor home will be cited for the collision.
Motor homes are difficult to maneuver and handle, and they are often slow to come to a stop. Inexperienced drivers attempting to operate these vehicles put other motorists at great risk. Whenever these types of vehicles are involved in a rear-end collision, it must be determined if the driver was capable of operating the vehicle? Why were they unable to avoid the collision? Did the motor home have a defective auto part? Was the driver speeding, driving distracted, or otherwise negligent?
Victims of chain-reaction accidents often have it in their best interest to contact an experienced Las Vegas personal injury attorney who can protect their legal rights and best interests. When multiple insurance companies are involved, it is common for the at-fault party to deny responsibility and for the insurance companies to offer an inadequate settlement. In such cases, it is important to speak with an attorney before accepting the offer because once an agreement is made, the victim will no longer have the right to pursue compensation for their losses.
