Pedestrian Accidents in Nevada
Every year, hundreds of people in Nevada are involved in pedestrian accidents due to the negligence of passenger vehicle drivers. Between the years 2008 and 2017, statistics showed that approximately 601 people were killed in these horrific accidents, many of them due to negligent reasons. Many other individuals were injured due to these collisions. Being severely injured in a pedestrian accident may be one of the most devastating events in your life, especially if you have spent time in the hospital and have not been able to return to work following a collision. It is important that you seek the help of an attorney who will stand by your side and help you protect your rights.
Reno pedestrian accidents are among the most severe accidents that happen on our roads.
