LAS VEGAS – Aug. 25 – The family of a man killed in a fatal accident at the Golden Nugget Hotel is getting closer to potentially receiving compensation through a wrongful death lawsuit.
The accident happened almost six years ago, but it appears to be part of a bigger suit claiming that the resort never took steps to prevent such accidents. Edward Marcinkowski, 83, died from injuries suffered when his rental car drove through a concrete barrier and went over the ledge in Oct. 2004. Earlier that year, another 83-year-old driver and his 79-year-old wife died after their car plowed through a fourth-floor barrier in the garage, reports Fox 5 News, Las Vegas. In a third accident, the driver survived but was left dangling from the garage ledge.
Typically, for a family of the deceased to increase the likelihood of maximum settlement, it’s important to involve a personal injury attorney as early as possible so that necessary steps can be taken. The Golden Nugget case is drawing a lot of local and national attention and is a good example of how car accident attorneys Henderson and elsewhere in the Las Vegas valley can make a difference for the families even years after the accident.
