Deadly Pedestrian Accidents in Nevada

When you travel on foot, you are at risk of being seriously injured in the event of a traffic accident. Pedestrian fatalities are on the rise across the country. In 2021 alone, there were more than 8,000 pedestrians killed on the nation’s roadways. That is about one death every 66 minutes on average. Statistics further show that nearly one in every six people killed in collisions that year were pedestrians.

Pedestrians have little protection in the event of a crash. For this reason, they are more likely to suffer from life-threatening or fatal injuries in a collision. The resulting damages can quickly mount up and leave families in a difficult financial situation.
