Car accidents occur frequently in Las Vegas, as it is a city that boasts large resident and tourist populations. In some instances, these crashes result from poor decision-making by young and inexperienced drivers. When others are hurt as the result of these decisions, the victims of these accidents may opt to file personal injury suits against negligent drivers.
A 17-year-old male has been cited by law enforcement officials for his role in a 3-car accident. The crash occurred in Las Vegas, but it not mentioned in this report whether the teen or any of the other people involved are residents of the city. Three people were injured as a result of the accident, and were transported to a trauma hospital. The extent of their injuries and their prognoses are unknown. This report does not indicate whether the teenaged driver was also hurt.
The article offers no speculation or details regarding the events leading up to the crash, other than to note that the teenaged driver has been identified by investigators as the main cause. The report does not mention whether law enforcement officers are considering drugs or alcohol as possible factors in the case.
Those who have been injured through premises liability or driver negligence may face debilitating, lifelong disabilities. To help address the emotional, physical and financial costs that accompany such injuries, victims may choose to pursue personal injury lawsuits against those responsible for these accidents. If you believe you have a viable civil litigation claim, you may wish to review your situation with an attorney.
