In Southern Nevada, there are new people becoming injured in auto accidents each day. Las Vegas is contantly having news reports of car crashes, usually taking place during rush hour, late at night, or early in the morning. That isn't to say that motor vehicle accidents don't happen in the Las Vegas valley at other times of day, because they do, they just don't happen at other times that they do in the time brackets that have just been listed. Because of the particularly high numbers of car wrecks in Southern Nevada, the folks here at Benson and Bingham attorneys at law would like to take some time to share with you a couple of suggestions from our Car Accident Checklist. If you take the time to review the entire list hosted on the Benson and Bingham website, you will see that there are actually 11 useful tidbits that you should refer back to if you find yourself as the victim of a Las Vegas injury auto accident. However, we're just going to condense the material to provide a broad overview of a couple of things you should do in the event of a car crash in Clark County. 

The first thing to do if you get into an auto accident in Southern Nevada is to stop your motor vehicle in a safe place as far from oncoming traffic as possible. When you've come to a complete stop in as safe of a place as you can, determine if anyone is injured. If they have been hurt in the car crash, administer first aid but do not move the person until help arrives. Next, call the emergency first responders by dialing 911. If someone in your car or the other individuals you have been in the motor vehicle accident have been hurt, let the emergency responders know so they can dispatch and ambulance o the scene of the wreck. Once police arrive to the scene of the auto accident in Southern Nevada, always cooperate with the officers but never admit fault or let the other parties know what your car insurance limits are.  Be civil to the other individuals in the crash, but never ever agree to ignore and accident. There could be damages or injuries to anyone that's been involved in the auto accident, and you don't want to find out later that the other people have decided to file a claim on you. Next, after you've talked with police, be sure to take a couple of moments to clear your head by writing all of the details of the car wreck down while the memory is still fresh. Think of this as a relaxation technique used to break up tension and get your thoughts all together. This can be crucial if you do end up deciding to pursue a legal case in relation to the motor vehicle accident in Clark County courts. Take pictures to document the damage and any other details that may be relevant to the auto accident later on. Last, contact Benson and Bingham to make sure you have the best injury accident lawyers in Las Vegas on your side.

According to the Las Vegas Metro Police Department's frequently updated traffic patrol sight, the injury car wreck took place near the intersection of Decatur and Charleston, in a pretty central part of Las Vegas close to Summerlin. The other car involved in the crash was a white sedan, with a person involved being injured and taken away in an ambulance.
