Hit While Crossing The Street? Our Lawyers Can Help
There are thousands of pedestrians on Las Vegas streets and walkways at just about any time during the day or night. We all have a certain expectation of safety when walking on a sidewalk or crossing the street. Not many pedestrians traversing Las Vegas Boulevard would expect to be hit by a car or other vehicle, but at one time or another, Nevada residents of all ages are exposed to the risk of a pedestrian accident.
Whether walking from their parked car to their job, walking to school, taking the bus, or jogging, pedestrians share public roadways with motor vehicles, placing themselves at direct risk. While pedestrian accidents represent only 0.2% of all traffic crashes in Nevada, they usually result in injury. These accidents account for an average of 6.4% of severe injuries and 17.8% of all motor vehicle-related fatalities in Nevada each year.
