Fighting For Pedestrian Accident Victims in Clark County

The Las Vegas area is a popular place for pedestrians. Both locals and tourists crowd the sidewalks and walkways near the boulevards and streets of our urban areas. Traffic involving carstrucks, taxis, buses, shuttle vans, and more can be dense. Foot traffic can also be high near hotels, casinos, restaurants, bars, and other sources of entertainment where people gather. All of this makes for a higher risk of pedestrian accidents, in which pedestrians will suffer the greatest impact of physical harm.

At Sierra Nevada Injury Lawyers, we understand a pedestrian accident’s life-changing consequences on individuals and their families. It may take a long time to recover from the serious injuries you have suffered while, in the meantime, you are unable to earn a living. Our firm is dedicated to helping you fight against insurance companies that are never fully on your side but are always seeking a way to discount or deny your claim. Our Las Vegas pedestrian accident attorneys know how to fight back with thoroughly prepared cases that prevent insurers from trying to cheat you out of the compensation to which you are entitled.

Common Causes Of Pedestrian Accidents

Identifying the root cause is crucial for constructing a robust case to pursue justice for victims of pedestrian accidents.

Common Injuries In Pedestrian Accidents

According to the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA), pedestrian accident fatalities reached a historic high in 2021. Speeding was cited as an increasing factor in this trend. Because pedestrians have no form of protection when hit by any type of motor vehicle, they can also suffer serious and even catastrophic injuries. In contrast, the occupants of the vehicle suffer little or none.

These injuries can include:

These injuries can happen at crosswalks while walking the Vegas strip, walking to one's car in a parking lot, or strolling a local neighborhood. They are generally caused by the negligence of drivers who fail to yield the right of way, run red lights, drive while distracted, driving while intoxicated, violate other traffic laws, or merely fail to pay attention. Unfortunately for pedestrians, the consequences can be profound in terms of pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost income, disability, disfigurement, diminished earning capacity, and reduced quality of life. These consequences can translate into financial compensation to which you may be entitled in a personal injury claim against the motorist and/or his or her insurer.

Recoverable Damages In A Pedestrian Accident Claim

Individuals affected by pedestrian accidents may be entitled to various forms of compensation. At Sierra Nevada Injury Lawyers, we are dedicated to ensuring our clients receive just and fair compensation. The recoverable damages encompass:

What Is The Statute Of Limitations For A Pedestrian Accident Claim In Nevada?

Time is of the essence when pursuing a pedestrian accident claim in Nevada. The statute of limitations dictates the timeframe for initiating legal action. In Nevada, the statute of limitations for pedestrian accidents is generally two years from the date of the incident.

Victims must seek legal assistance from Sierra Nevada Injury Lawyers to ensure compliance with this deadline. Failing to file a claim within the specified timeframe may result in the forfeiture of the right to seek compensation.

Our legal team is here to help you get every dollar you need and deserve after being injured by a negligent driver. When you have been seriously injured, you likely do not have the time or attention to deal with legal details. Furthermore, insurers know you are disadvantaged due to your injuries and unfamiliarity with the law and the claims process. That makes you vulnerable to their tactics designed to deny you the justice you deserve.

When you hire our firm, we know how to prove fault by gathering critical evidence, from police reports to witness reports, photographic evidence, video footage, and more that support your claim. We can document all of the expenses connected with your injuries and place a value on intangible damages such as your pain and suffering. We are here to make these companies honor their policies.

Let us fight to help you secure the compensation you deserve. We handle the entire process, allowing you to concentrate on restoring your life.
