Pedestrian Accidents in Nevada
Nevada has seen more and more pedestrian accidents over the years than ever before. Between 2008 and 2017, it was reported that approximately 600 pedestrians lost their lives in horrific accidents due to the reckless acts of others. Pedestrians have no protection from harm against large vehicles, which means that they are more likely to become seriously injured or even lose their lives in an accident in the blink of an eye. If you have been injured in a pedestrian accident that was caused by another party, you may be feeling helpless and alone. You should be prepared to speak with an attorney that you can trust in your time of need.
The aftermath of a Nevada pedestrian accident might be one of the most overwhelming things that you have ever endured. Some of the most catastrophic injuries that stem from these accidents include spinal cord injuries, TBIs, fractures, organ damage, and more. These injuries are sometimes so severe that they land victims in the hospital or cause them to miss out on time in the workplace. As you focus fully on your physical recovery, you may wonder how you are going to continue to pay the bills that pile up against you. Injured victims are urged to seek the immediate help of a Nevada personal injury attorney who has their best interests in mind.
