Bizarre Nevada accidents showcase several forms of personal injury
Never is a Las Vegas personal injury incident a mundane affair, whether it involves a tragic Nevada motor vehicle accident or some other kind of accident. Our purpose here is not to dabble in voyeurism or schadenfreude but rather to highlight stories of accident and injuries affecting Nevadans and their families in order to help point individuals looking for experienced personal injury legal advice toward reliable information. But we cannot help but notice that recent headlines have showcased a series of especially odd Nevada personal injuries.
One of these strange incidents centers around a Nevada car accident that occurred in the northern city of Sparks. In the early morning hours of last Saturday, an out-of-state motorist caused a serious accident with another driver when he allegedly drove in the wrong lane with no apparent awareness of his mistake. Initial investigations concluded that alcohol was not a factor in this accident, a surprising finding given that many Nevada head-on collisions do involve drunk drivers.
Details are still unfolding around another mysterious incident that could involve a Nevada casino accident. A 68-year-old woman was found dead at the base of the Horizon Casino in the Lake Tahoe area. The circumstances are very unclear at this early stage, but authorities believe that the woman fell from a 14th-floor hotel balcony. Was this foul play, or simply a tragic casino slip-and-fall accident? Another bizarre incident involves a Henderson man who is accused of killing a prostitute he had hired to come to his home. He claims that the woman died accidentally during a sex act, but prosecutors say that the death was intended and in addition to possible civil action against the man for an intentional tort, he is also being charged with murder.
