A sixty-nine-year-old man died in a ten-car accident that took place on Monday afternoon, Las Vegas police said.
The police reported that a 1993 Toyota Camry was going south on Lamb Boulevard around 3:40 p.m. when it collided into several cars that were stopped at a red light at Sahara Avenue.
The driver of the Camry and the driver of another vehicle in the crash were transported to Sunrise Hospital in Medical Center, where the sixty-nine-year-old driver was pronounced dead, the police said.
The other driver, a nineteen-year-old man, was severely injured; the police is still investigating the cause of the collision.
The Clark County coroner’s office has not released the identity of the victim and will identify the deceased once his family is notified.
The Metropolitan Police Department reported that this was the 29th traffic death investigated by the agency in 2020.
Victims involved in car accidents have the right to file lawsuits against the liable parties and seek compensation for their injuries and damages.
The claims are different for every car accident. The amount the victim could get depends on various factors that are unique for their particular case. So, smaller injuries that don’t affect the life of the victim are usually settled for several thousands of dollars. More severe injuries tend to get higher settlements.
However, most personal injuries that happened in car accidents are somewhere in between.
When seeking your claim, it would be best if you hire a car accident lawyer who will help you in the process.
Insurance companies are not very fond of paying high settlements and would do their best to offer you less.
