Winchester, NV (January 20, 2022) – On Thursday morning, January 20, EMS treated injured victims after a multi-vehicle accident occurred in the Winchester area.
The crash occurred on northbound U.S. Highway 95 at Exit 70 to the Boulder Highway around 10:30 a.m. According to troopers with the Nevada State Police, at least one victim was transported to an area medical center, though their current condition remains unknown. The total number of injured parties is also unclear.
Stop-and-go traffic was observed back to Flamingo Road into the early afternoon, but officers cleared the scene by 1:00 p.m. An investigation is ongoing at this time, however.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Injury Car Accidents in Nevada
Nevada Department of Transportation authorities released recent data which show more than 50,000 car crashes occurred statewide in one year alone. Moreover, officers with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department added that almost 45% of that accident total occurred in the greater Las Vegas area.
According to that same data, there were 284 fatalities throughout Las Vegas reported in 2019, with a nearly 4% increase in the last two years.
These motor vehicle accidents are an unfortunately common fact of life in Nevada, particularly in the greater Las Vegas area. Sadly, these victims and families are especially vulnerable in the aftermath of fatal accidents.
After a serious auto accident, those affected often cope with financial difficulties, long-term physical issues, and serious emotional trauma. Sadly, when victims succumb to their injuries, family members must deal with expensive medical and funerary costs in the aftermath.
However, if you have suffered injuries in an accident or lost a loved one, you may have legal recourse. You can and should reach out to a Las Vegas auto accident attorney right away. At Valiente Mott, we believe victims should never have to pay out of pocket.
