Rollover Truck Accident on Interstate 15 Freeway Causes Fuel Spill, Injuries

LAS VEGAS, Nevada (Sept. 5, 2013) –  One person was hospitalized early Wednesday morning after two big rig trucks collided on the Interstate 15 Freeway near Sloan Road, according to a report by the Las Vegas Sun.

About 4:20 a.m., the two trucks crashed and one overturned on the freeway, emptying roughly 25 gallons of diesel fuel into the roadway, the report said. Paramedics responded to the scene of the truck accident and took one person to University Medical Center for treatment of minor injuries, the Nevada Highway Patrol told the newspaper.

The Nevada Highway Patrol is investigating the truck accident to determine liability for the crash and the Nevada Department of Transportation was on the scene to clean up the fuel spill.

“Truck drivers spend a lot of time on our freeways and there are many things that may contribute to this type of crash, but an investigation will likely determine liability in this case,” said Attorney West Thomas, a personal injury lawyer in Nevada.

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA: Child Porn Victim Files Class-Action Lawsuit in Philadelphia

Victim files class action lawsuit

Those Who View Child Pornography Will be Fined and Arested Under Masha’s Law

LAS VEGAS, Nevada, (August 30, 2013) – Masha Allen was only five years old when she was adopted from a Russian orphanage by a millionaire from the Pittsburgh area named Matthew Mancuso. Mancuso made hundreds of pornographic and explicit images of Masha and is currently in jail along with 13 other men who had viewed these images. As a result of this horrific and devastating incident, “Masha’s Law,” named after Masha Allen, was passed by congress in 2006.

Under this law, anyone found to have viewed these images of Masha or any other child will be added to a list and fined and arrested. As a result, several class-action lawsuits have emerged from victims of child pornography, many of them now teens or adults. Each time an image is viewed online by suspects, it can be traced. The suspect can then be added to a growing and long list of offenders.

Suspects can now have assets seized and put in jail for several years. According to authorities, many of the suspects are seemingly upstanding members of society including teachers, police, fire fighters as well as educated and wealthy men. The FBI continues to track down these predators and bring them to justice.

“Every resource and intelligence available to law enforcement should be directed at finding and putting away child predators and child pornographers. It is the vilest and most offending aspect of society that must be eradicated with the harshest of consequences,” states personal injury attorney West Thomas. Mr. Thomas has been practicing personal injury, wrongful death, and employment law for over 32 years.

LAS VEGAS: Tour Bus Crash Injures 12 People, Synthetic Marijuana “Spice” May Have Been a Factor

Monday, August 19th, 2013

LAS VEGAS, Nevada (August 19, 2013) – A tour bus accident occurred near Desert Inn Road and Maryland Parkway Sunday night. The collision sent twelve people to the hospital with injuries. Witnesses stated that the bus driver slammed into a row of cars as they were stopped at a red light. The bus driver was driving an empty tour bus marked “Herrera Coaches.”

The collision caused a domino effect and several other collisions followed at around 5:30 p.m. The bus careened into a light pole and the bus driver was restrained by witnesses, after he attempted to flee the scene. A total of fifteen people were involved in the accident and twelve of them were seen at Sunrise Hospital for various injuries.

The bus driver stated that he had been smoking Spice, a synthetic form marijuana that is sold in smoke shops, according to Metro police. Spice is legal although some ingredients in Spice are not. It is unclear at this time which form of spice the bus driver had been smoking but an investigation is on-going.

“Each victim in this scenario should seek legal representation right away” states attorney West Thomas. West Thomas has been practicing personal injury law in California for the last 32 years.
