West Las Vegas two-car crash leaves one with critical injuries

Posted by Neil Shouse | Feb 16, 2018 | 0 Comments

Yesterday morning a 2018 BMW reportedly hit a 2014 Cadillac as the Cadillac was turning left from West Charleston Blvd. onto Apple Dr. in Las Vegas. The 50-year-old Cadillac driver was rushed to University Medical Center with critical injuries. The 19-year-old BMW driver was treated for minor injuries at Summerlin Hospital Medical Center. Police believe neither driver was impaired. The Cadillac driver was not wearing a seat belt.

"The BMW driver may have been negligent. If so, the Cadillac driver could be entitled to substantial compensatory and punitive damages from the BMW driver," commented Las Vegas personal injury attorney Michael Becker. "Even if the Cadillac driver partially contributed to his injuries by not wearing a safety belt, Nevada's comparative negligence laws could still allow him to recover a hefty sum."

"Furthermore, there needs to be an investigation into whether either car was defective, or whether the road signs were not working properly," Mr. Becker added. "Both drivers may have claims against their car manufacturers, car dealerships, and the city of Las Vegas."
