Shane Patrick Gertzen killed in pedestrian knockdown accident in Las Vegas

Posted by Neil Shouse | Apr 19, 2018 | 0 Comments

On Friday, 38-year-old Shane Patrick Gertzen was killed by a Ford E-250 while he was running across Charleston Boulevard east of Rancho Drive. Gertzen was reportedly outside of a marked crosswalk, and the SUV driver is cooperating with authorities. Police do not believe the driver was impaired by drugs or alcohol.

"Pedestrian knockdowns are all-too-frequent occurrences in Las Vegas," Las Vegas personal injury attorney Michael Becker commented. "Gertzen's family may have a wrongful death case against the SUV driver. Even if Gertzen may have been outside of the marked crosswalk, they still may be able to prove that the driver was at least 50% negligent. And if so, the family may be able to recover hefty compensatory and possibly punitive damages."
