Three pedestrians die, others injured, crossing Las Vegas street

A recent afternoon pedestrian accident in Las Vegas left 3 people dead and 7 people with injuries, 2 of which police describes as "critical" in nature. While police have identified one driver who struck the pedestrians, they also say there were other vehicles involved in this tragic accident as well.

Police say that the driver of the vehicle who hit the pedestrians may have been under the influence of drugs or alcohol. However, the driver's boss claims that in fact, the driver was epileptic and may have had a seizure right before the accident.

The boss said that, right before the accident, he had seen driver at a construction site where they both worked. The boss also added that the driver's doctor had told the man he was okay to drive despite his tendency to experience seizures.

The accident happened at an intersection, and police gave no indication that the pedestrians had been improperly crossing the street. Still, police continue to investigate this sad case.

While a wait and see approach may be best for the time being, at some point, the victims or the deceased victims' families are going to have to decide what they want to do as a result of this accident. In the aftermath of this tragedy, the victims and families will no doubt have to deal with financial expenses like the cost of medical bills, funeral expenses and possibly the loss of a reliable stream of income. Additionally, they will to deal with non-economic injuries like pain, distress and grief.

These victims may be able to get compensation for their losses, or for the loss of their loved ones, via a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit. Before suing or even filing a claim with the appropriate insurance company, however, injured parties should strongly consider speaking with an attorney experienced with handling car accidents and similar claims.
