The city of Las Vegas sees more than its fair share of serious auto accidents. Indeed, the Allstate Best Driver’s Report ranks Vegas 127th of 200 cities in its annual weather-adjusted crash rankings. According to their data, Las Vegas drivers are involved in accidents nearly 18 percent more often than the national average.
A significant number of serious Vegas auto accidents take place at intersections. These crashes can be especially devastating, as two vehicles traveling in opposite directions will multiply the force of the impact when a crash does occur. In the worst cases, intersection accidents can turn catastrophic, even deadly. Though, not all intersections in the city are created equal. Here, the experienced car accident lawyers at Ladah Law Firm highlight the five most dangerous intersections in Las Vegas.
The Las Vegas Metro Police Department (LVMPD) has released a comprehensive auto accident report that identifies the five intersections within the city where the most collisions occur.
It doesn’t matter if your driving, riding with an Uber, taxi or Lyft, walking, cycling, etc. These intersections are dangerous & nobody is exempt from becoming a victim of an accident at them. Utmost care should be taken when approaching & passing through these intersections.
If you have been involved in a serious auto accident, you need to seek medical assistance as soon possible. Certainly, if you require emergency attention, please accept an ambulance ride to the nearest hospital. However, even if you believe your injuries are ‘moderate’ or ‘mild’ you still need to get yourself in for a comprehensive medical evaluation immediately. Many common motor vehicle accident injuries, including concussions, soft tissue damage and back injuries, occur with a delayed onset. You may be far more hurt than you realize. Get help.
