Pedestrian Accidents in Nevada
Pedestrian accidents are some of the most severe accidents that occur on our roadways. This is mainly due to the fact that pedestrians have no protection from harm against vehicles, which puts them at risk for some of the most life-altering injuries. Between 2008 and 2017, it was estimated that approximately 600 lives were lost as a result of pedestrian accidents. It is never easy to face the aftermath of a pedestrian accident, especially if you have suffered from serious injuries. It is important that you seek the immediate help of an accident attorney after an accident that is not your fault.
Being hurt in a Reno pedestrian accident can have a huge and lasting impact on every aspect of your life. This is especially true if you have been left with severe injuries such as spinal cord injuries, broken bones, organ damage, and more. Drivers are urged to watch out for pedestrians who share our roads at all times, but this does not always occur. If you can show that another party is to blame for your pedestrian accident, you can be successful as you move forward with a claim.
