Serious Pedestrian Accidents in Las Vegas, Nevada

More than 290 victims pass away as a result of motor vehicle accidents across the state of Nevada each year. These collisions are often preventable, yet we continue to witness the life-changing impacts they have on families across the state. 

Although we often take proactive measures to ensure we act responsibly while operating our vehicles, there is no way to guarantee others will do the same. Some of the most common causes of crashes include drivers who fail to yield the right of way, distracted or impaired drivers, and those who act recklessly while behind the wheel.

Not only are families left to deal with overwhelming emotional pain and suffering, but they are often required to spend thousands of dollars on funeral arrangements and other costs.
