In a matter of hours, three separate car accidents resulted in five fatalities over the weekend. According to an 8 News Now news report, the first crash involved a 19-year-old driver crashing his Dodge Stratus into a PT Cruiser that was attempting to make a turn near Windmill Parkway and Green Valley Parkway in Henderson. The 19-year-old driver, his 19-year-old passenger, and an 86-year-old man were all killed in the crash. Speed appears to have been a factor in the collision.

The second fatal crash occurred at Sahara Avenue near Decatur Boulevard when a Honda Accord driven by a 19-year-old man fatally struck a 17-year-old male pedestrian and injured a woman. The third collision involved a suspected drunk driver crashing near Torrey Pines Drive and Robindale Road. A passenger was killed, and the drunk driver sustained minor injuries.

The family of a deceased auto accident victim would be well advised to contact an experienced personal injury lawyer who will stay on top of the official investigation and make sure that their legal rights are protected. If it is determined that driver negligence was a contributing factor in the crash, financial compensation may be available for the victim’s family through a wrongful death claim.

In such cases, compensation may be available for medical bills, funeral expenses, lost future wages, and other related damages. A skilled Las Vegas wrongful death attorney will ensure that fair compensation is offered to the victim’s family for their terrible loss. The experienced Las Vegas personal injury lawyers at Shook & Stone have a successful track record of holding at-fault drivers accountable for the damages they cause.
