Las Vegas I-15 Tire Separation Accident Leaves One Dead, One Critically Injured
Yet another Las Vegas traffic accident has caused yet another traffic fatality. One person was killed and one more is critically injured after a single car accident this afternoon on Las Vegas Interstate 15. The accident seems to have been caused by a catastrophic tire tread separation malfunction. Every time someone is injured or killed on Las Vegas roads, we at Benson and Bingham feel terribly for the people and families of those involved. The attorneys of Benson and Bingham have significant experience with Southern Nevada tire tread separation cases, and have the expertise to represent you with auto insurance companies.
Many tire tread separation cases can result in significant awards due to personal injury or Las Vegas wrongful death. In today’s accident, all the occupants of the automobile, a Dodge Durango, were wearing their seatbelts. The driver of the SUV was ejected from the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene. Another woman was rushed by life flight helicopter to University Medical Center. If you have been involved in a Las Vegas tire blow out accident, contact Benson and Bingham so you can recoup money spent on medical expenses, pain and suffering and lost work.
In a catastrophic tire separation case, it’s important to save as much evidence as possible. Please be sure to save whatever remnants of the destroyed tire, including the tread. If the accident occurred on a highway, do not risk your life crossing lanes to secure the tread. Wait until the road is closed by Nevada Highway Patrol before attempting to cross any highway lanes on foot.
