Yesterday afternoon a car crash occurred near Charleston Blvd. and Arville St., leaving a pedestrian in "very critical condition." Las Vegas Metro closed the eastbound lanes of Charleston to investigate. And its fatal traffic investigators are involved because of the gravity of the victim's injuries.
"Pedestrian knockdowns are an all-too-frequent occurrence in Las Vegas," Las Vegas personal injury attorney Michael Becker commented. "The victim may have a negligence per se cause of action against the driver of the vehicle the caused the accident. And if the investigation shows that a faulty traffic signal played a part in the accident, the victim might be able to sue the city as well for substantial money damages."
