Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in Nevada
Thousands of pedestrians are injured in collisions throughout our state each year. Although we would like to think that most victims make it out of their accidents uninjured, this is not always the case. Around 90 pedestrians lose their lives each year in motor vehicle accidents throughout Nevada. These accidents are often preventable, yet we continue to see the devastating consequences of reckless, negligent, and careless drivers sharing the road.
When pedestrians are killed in accidents caused by negligent drivers, their families should reach out to a Nevada wrongful death lawyer as soon as possible. Families may be entitled to compensation to help alleviate some of the financial burdens they face moving forward.
