Flash Floods Cause Accidents, Property Damage, and Death
Clark County (August 1, 2019) – It’s currently monsoon season in Nevada, and with it comes the occasional flash flood. While it’s obvious that flash floods can cause property damage and traffic accidents, many people are unaware of how lethal they can be. According to government officials, 18 people have died in Clark County due to flash floods since 1982.
While numerous infrastructure improvements have decreased the risk of flash flood fatalities, the attorneys at Lerner and Rowe urge you to exercise caution while driving during a flash flood. If possible, delay your trip until the storm has subsided. If you or a family member are injured during a Nevada flash flood due to negligence or another person’s reckless actions, contact Lerner and Rowe immediately. Source: Clark County
