Our firm has always felt that Las Vegas residents are an extension of our family.

This Week at Edward M. Bernstein & Associates

On the road

The construction on the 215 continues this week, most notably westbound and eastbound between Warm Springs and Paradise. There is also work being done on the 215 eastbound on-ramp from the airport tunnel. The carpool lane on the 95 is blocked, due to construction, both ways between Decatur and Rancho and northbound at Exit 81C/Westbound Summerlin Pkwy HOV flyover. Due to the construction on Martin L. King Blvd., both the northbound and southbound exit ramps remain closed this week. On the 15, the slowdowns persist this week due to the construction on Exit 42A (US-95 northbound). All exit ramps onto the 15 from Martin L. King Blvd. are still closed, as well.

Please exercise caution in these areas!

Traffic and pedestrian accidents

On Friday evening, a 15-year old girl was struck by a vehicle and critically injured while crossing in the crosswalk where Vegas Drive intersects with North Cimarron Road. Our Las Vegas personal injury attorneys have handled many pedestrian accidents and we want to remind everyone at home to be very careful while crossing the road, even in a designated crossing area.

Also on Friday, a pedestrian was run over by a semitrailer and killed in the loading dock of the Albertsons on the 5900 block of West Tropicana avenue. This is already the fifth traffic fatality in Las Vegas this year and the fourth fatality involving a pedestrian. Our greatest condolences go to the family of the victim.
