Las Vegas, NV (October 22, 2021) – A motor vehicle accident causing serious injuries occurred on Friday morning, October 22, authorities say.

Speed is considered a factor in the crash, though impairment is not.

Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families. We hope for their full recovery.
Motor Vehicle Accidents in Las Vegas
Officials with the Nevada Department of Transportation show nearly 52,000 reported car crashes statewide in one year alone. And officers with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department added that almost 45% of that total occurred in Las Vegas.
Clearly, these motor vehicle accidents are an unfortunately common fact of life in Nevada. This is particularly true when it comes to the bustling streets of Las Vegas. And victims and families are particularly 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. We believe victims should be able to fight for their fair, full compensation. This compensation can cover losses moving forward so that you never have to pay out of pocket.
