Wrongful Death Cases Increase Around Halloween In Henderson

- David Boehrer

A 3-year old toddler was killed in a car accident along East Carey Avenue and Sane Lane in Clark County when a Dodge Ram 3500 crashed onto the sedan in which the child and her 3 companions were riding. Investigation shows that the driver of the Dodge Ram was a 70-year old man suspected of driving under the influence of alcohol or intoxicating substances at the time. The child’s companions were seriously injured in the accident.

The parents of the car accident victim may be entitled to compensation for the wrongful death caused by the negligent driver of the Dodge Ram.

3x More Accidents in Halloween

Other fatal car crashes have occurred in and around Henderson in recent days, raising safety concerns about the coming Halloween weekend where thousands of children take to the streets to go trick-or-treating in their costumes.

Halloween is usually a dangerous time for motorists and pedestrians, with the season contributing to as many as 3 times more pedestrian deaths and DUI charges than any other time of the year. It can be worse when Halloween falls on a Friday, as people tend to start drinking earlier and party for the weekend. Motorists are advised to drive more carefully and look out for children crossing the streets, and for parents to teach their children about road safety when drivers may not be able to see them in their dark costumes at night.
