The driver and one of the passengers were seriously injured and a second passenger did not survive the crash.
Nevada Accident Stats
First and foremost, we’d like to offer our most sincere condolences to the family and friends of the unidentified passenger who was killed in this single-vehicle Las Vegas car accident. We also hope that the people who were injured are able to survive 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 300 people are killed in these occurrences.
While it seems clear that more information would be necessary to specifically identify what went wrong before this single-vehicle Las Vegas car accident, it seems relatively reasonable to assume that the passenger who was killed was not at fault for the crash. If that’s true, then the family of this passenger could respond by filing a Nevada wrongful death lawsuit. If such a lawsuit is filed and it’s successful, it could lead to an award of damages that compensates the family for their losses.
