Fiery Car Accident Injures 1 in Sparks

A recent car accident in Sparks injured the driver of the vehicle and set a house ablaze in an almost Hollywood imagined crash scene. The driver of the vehicle, a minivan made by Ford, is reported to have had some type of medical issue which precipitated the crash by causing her to lose control. Her gold Ford went barreling in the house full tilt. The car then had the bad luck to sever a gas line and start quite a fire going in this Northern Nevada accident. The driver was fortunately said to have only sustained generally minor injuries, despite her having been needing rescuing from the vehicle, which fortunately was being followed by her boyfriend who was able to pull her out. The fire burned fairly heatedly, which we suppose is not hard to believe given that it was started by a broken gas line set aflame. Luckily the family whose house it is was not home at the moment of impact.

It can be tough to know where to turn to be made whole after an injury car crash in the Reno area like this. This woman could have lost control for any number of reasons, both her fault and not. An incorrect dosage of a prescription drug or an adverse and predictable drug reaction, for example, are easily attributed to a doctor or pharmacy’s medical malpractice in Southern Nevada for ways this could not be the woman’s fault. Depending on how the facts come to light about this, though, even your own insurance could try to refuse to pay out a claim, for one reason or another. In that case, you need to talk to a top Northern Nevada car accident lawyer like Benson & Bingham Attorneys at Law.

Bus Accident in Northern Nevada

For some reason many of us often feel somewhat invincible in a bus, taxi, or other types of public transportation. Lots of people rarely put their seatbelts on for the most part, which must in some way be a signal that they don’t have the same fear as in a regular, passenger car. We’re guilty of it ourselves. But it’s important to remember that injuries from bus accidents in Northern Nevada do happen. These accidents and injuries can be no less severe than accidents in other types of transportation. While there are seemingly few cases of people being injured on public transportation in Reno like this accident, it does most certainly happen. If you’re injured in an accident like that in Northern Nevada, Benson & Bingham Attorneys at Law can help.

There are many different types of public transportation, and many different things that can mean to different people. We use it more often to refer to most paid or mass transit systems, which in Nevada can mean a great many things. A tour bus bringing skiers, gamblers, outdoorsman, or any number of people is a ripe candidate for a bus accident in Northern Nevada because of our road conditions and drivers from out of state not knowing our roads or weather patterns. Even without the weather, people are injured on vacation in Nevada not infrequently because of bus and taxi injury accidents in Washoe County.

If you’re injured on public transportation in Reno and need a lawyer, contact Benson & Bingham today for a free consultation with top Nevada injury lawyers. It is important for the lawyer handling the case to understand how to pursue proper litigation in this field, since there are many factors: Was the driver licensed? Was the taxi cab or bus driver under the influence of alcohol or drugs? What is the maximum in liability insurance a victim can receive?

In addition, many pedestrians are victimized by taxi cab and bus drivers who commit vehicle violations while behind the wheel. If the cab driver was at fault for causing you pain and suffering, it is important to contact a lawyer with taxi cab accident experience.

The Law Offices of Benson and Bingham are skilled at litigating or settling taxi accident and bus injury cases in Nevada. Contact our Nevada Law Offices if you are injured by a taxi cab or bus.

Snowy Crashes in Reno

When it’s snowy, any number of car accidents in Reno involving injuries may be initially ruled an accident. This is because of the weather, and the fact that things can at first appear like no one was at fault in these type of conditions. But if you were injured and need compensation for your injuries in a Washoe County vehicle accident and believe the other party was at fault, you need a lawyer like Benson & Bingham Attorneys at Law who can help you sort out if you have a case, regardless of what the initial accident report stated, and take care of you if you do. Contact us today for a free consultation to discuss your situation.

How might it be that an injury accident in Northern Nevada that was initially ruled as no-fault turn out to be actually caused by the negligence of another party, which gives you a better claim to pursue compensation? Well, the last few days in Washoe County have shown some of the most common ways: snow, and slick roads that don’t seem to be plowed hardly at all, especially when you get off the main roads where the snow gets melted from vehicle traffic as much as anything else. Crashes in the snow are frequent, as we saw in recent news reports on car crashes in the Reno area, and often times get ruled accidents initially because they seem to have been the fault of the snow, and there are so many accidents that police officers sometimes don’t have the time to look at the whole picture of it, unless someone was clearly driving under the influence in Nevada, for example. But here’s the thing: even if the other party was going under the speed limit and not drunk and just slid into you, it may very well be their fault. Speed limits are for the best of conditions; if the person was going too fast for driving on the snowy roads, then you may have a case to collect compensation. This, snow, is not a reason for accidents that you see a lot in Las Vegas car accidents. But they see plenty of accidents from air or wet roads, which happen so infrequently that drivers don’t necessarily know how to drive in them or to slow down, which can cause plenty of accidents that act like this in practice.
