Pedestrian Accidents in Nevada

Accidents involving pedestrians can be extremely dangerous, and tragically, fatal injuries are common for victims. Drivers routinely ignore their surroundings in Nevada's big cities, which can easily end in a serious pedestrian crash. Nevada does not have a good track record with pedestrian safety. According to the latest crash statistics, pedestrians are involved in over 24 percent of traffic fatalities in the state, with most of these collisions occurring in cities. You need to act by working with an experienced personal injury attorney if you or someone close to you is seriously injured while traveling on foot.

Serious injuries are common if you or a loved one is wounded while walking on or near a road.
