Auto accident claims 99th life in 2015 traffic-related incidents

Driving on Nevada roads can be hazardous, and fatalities in the jurisdiction of the Las Vegas Metro Police so far this year has reportedly reached almost 100. In fact, the death of a mail truck driver on a recent Saturday was the 99th traffic-related death in 2015. This auto accident is believed to have been caused by a negligent driver.

City may be liable for slip and falls on damaged sidewalks

Whenever a Nevada resident suffers an injury on the property of another party, the property owner may be held responsible if his or her negligence caused the injury. Similarly, individuals who suffer slip-and-fall accidents on city streets or sidewalks may pursue claims if negligence can be proved. It is the responsibility of any municipality to ensure its sidewalks and streets are reasonably safe. If conditions such as broken sidewalks or holes cause slip and falls, it may give rise to negligence claims.
