Deadly Pedestrian Accidents in Nevada

Traveling as a pedestrian is far from safe, especially in a busy city like Las Vegas. Statistics show that from 2014 to 2018, there were 387 fatalities resulting from 376 pedestrian crashes across the state of Nevada. Almost 90 percent of these deadly crashes occurred in urban areas, and more than 24.4 percent of fatal crashes in the state involved pedestrian accidents. Clark County was the site of the majority of these incidents.

For many reasons, pedestrians are more likely to suffer life-threatening injuries in the event of a traffic accident. There is little protection offered to those traveling on foot, and this means the resulting injuries are often much more severe. These injuries frequently require extensive medical treatment that can quickly become astronomical. You will likely not be able to handle these and other expenses on your own.
