Deadly Pedestrian Accidents in Nevada

In the event of a traffic accident, you run the danger of suffering significant injuries no matter how you travel. However, pedestrians are at even greater risk of suffering serious injuries. Across the nation, the number of pedestrian fatalities is rising. Over 8,000 people lost their lives in pedestrian accidents on American roads in 2021 alone. That translates to an average of one death every 66 minutes. Nearly one out of every six traffic fatalities in the United States that year were pedestrians. It is never easy to deal with any type of accident, and it is particularly difficult to manage a deadly crash. A trained attorney will be able to help you pursue a strong wrongful death claim in order to help in your pursuit of justice.

In an accident, pedestrians have very little protection. That means that they are more prone to sustain serious or even fatal injuries in the event of a traffic accident. The ensuing losses can quickly accumulate and put families in a potentially dangerous financial position. You might be able to pursue a wrongful death claim to get compensation for funeral and burial costs in the event of a fatal collision. However, wrongful death claims are some of the most complicated pieces of litigation our personal injury attorneys handle every day. Families that attempt to manage them on their own frequently encounter unforeseen issues and challenges for which they are unprepared to handle, potentially damaging their recovery.
