Las Vegas, NV (August 20, 2020) – A traffic accident that left at least one person with injuries occurred on Thursday, August 20th.

As affirmed in 911 dispatch logs handled by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, the collision took place at around 10:30 p.m. when two vehicles of unreported make and model collided with one another in the 3800 block of South Las Vegas Boulevard. 

Officers from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department as well as first responders and emergency medical personnel were all dispatched to the scene of the accident where they rendered emergency aid to at least one victim who was suffering from crash-related injuries. 

Emergency personnel at the scene made certain that the relevant emergency treatment or transportation was received by those who needed it.

It is unclear whether or not any traffic citations were issued following the collision.

No additional details pertaining to the identities of those involved, the circumstances leading up to the accident, and any subsequent injuries have been made known as cause and liability for this incident are still under professional inquiry by local law enforcement officers. 

Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.

Nevada Intersection Car Accidents

Paradise, NV - Injury Collision at Red Barn Dr & Windmill LnIntersections are a hotspot for serious car accidents across Las Vegas. Congested intersections and distracted drivers are a dangerous combination, and intersections are the site of a significant portion of vehicle collisions reported each year, despite making up a small fraction of roadways across the country. It only takes the actions of a single reckless driver to cause a serious car accident. According to statistics from the Federal Highway Administration, there are an estimated 2.5 million intersection crashes reported each year, accounting for roughly 40% of reported car accidents. 

Even the most careful drivers can find themselves the victim of a serious accident, and it is crucial that those injured in Las Vegas car crashes pursue the compensation they deserve after being unfairly injured by a reckless driver. For most Nevada residents, driving is our primary form of transportation, and anytime you are traveling the streets of Las Vegas, the risk of a crash is always present. Despite this fact, most drivers are unsure of what to do in the event of a crash, and many accident victims are overwhelmed when pursuing a Nevada personal injury claim for compensation. 

A qualified Las Vegas car crash attorney can help injured parties pursue a personal injury claim after a collision. At the Richard Harris Law Firm, our legal team strives to help those harmed in Nevada car accidents collect compensation to cover the medical treatment they need for injuries and other damages, and we will ensure that your legal rights are protected following a collision.

Las Vegas Reckless Driving Collisions

Paradise, NV - Accident with Injuries at Maryland Pkwy & Desert Inn RdSharing the roadway with reckless drivers is a harsh reality when traveling in Las Vegas. The city is known for being unsafe for drivers, with multiple studies citing that Nevada has some of the worst drivers in the country. Human error is involved in an estimated 19 out of 20 reported crashes each year across the country. Reckless driving is responsible for nearly 30% of reported car accidents reported annually. On average, 13,000 fatal traffic accidents that occur annually are attributable to reckless driving, accounting for nearly one-third of roadway deaths in a given year. 

Pursuing deserved compensation can be difficult after being injured in a car accident,  and crash victims who negotiate with the insurance company may find themselves in a difficult situation. Despite what they may say, the insurance company wants to make you accept the lowest settlement possible, and that means minimizing your compensation following a car crash. Medical bills, missed work, and emotional suffering all add up quickly, and crash victims are entitled to recover compensation by pursuing a personal injury claim. If you have been injured in a serious Las Vegas car crash, you need to contact a qualified Nevada car accident lawyer immediately. 

The Richard Harris Law Firm is here to ensure your personal injury claim is handled effectively and fairly. Our team of Las Vegas personal injury attorneys has provided legal representation for countless clients, and we always ensure that our clients’ legal rights are protected after being unfairly injured in a Nevada car accident.

Los Angeles, CA (August 18, 2020) – A hit-and-run accident in the 7100 block of Foothill Boulevard in Tujunga caused the death of an elderly man in the early morning hours of Monday, August 17th.

The deadly collision took place at around 1:40 a.m. 

Local law enforcement officers stated that the accident occurred when a black BMW, being driven by a male at a high rate of speed in the southbound lanes of Foothill Boulevard, near the Pinewood Avenue intersection, collided headfirst with a blue Hyundai Elantra being driven by a man in his 80s.

The force of the impact was strong enough to force the Hyundai, which was an out-of-state rental car, into some nearby traffic barriers.

Officials from the local fire and rescue department along with local paramedics reported to the crash site where they pronounced the driver of the Elantra dead at the scene.

The identity of the deceased victim remains undisclosed. 

In the meantime, the driver of the BMW failed to pull over after the accident and fled the scene.

Police have confirmed that about three hours later he did turn himself in and was taken into custody. They have also identified the two passengers in the BMW and are questioning them concerning the accident.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time.
