Pedestrian Accidents in Las Vegas

Las Vegas, NV - Woman Loses Life in Pedestrian Wreck on N 5th St near Brooks AveThough pedestrian travel is often a quick and convenient way to get around, it can also be one of the most dangerous methods of travel. Due to the fact that pedestrians are totally unprotected against the force of heavy, fast-moving vehicles in the event of a crash, they are some of the most at-risk individuals on American roadways. 

Sustaining injuries in a pedestrian collision can be an extremely difficult and overwhelming experience. Unfortunately, the majority of pedestrian crashes happen due to the negligent actions of drivers. Most often, drivers are operating their vehicles while distracted, failing to give the road and their immediate surroundings their undivided attention. This type of dangerous and careless behavior can and does lead to disastrous injury accidents. Sadly, pedestrian crashes have the potential to end in fatal injuries for victims, and often do. 

Each year, over 8,000 pedestrians lose their lives in traffic accidents in the United States. If you have recently lost a loved one in a pedestrian crash, you may be wondering where you can turn to get the help you need and the Justice you deserve.
