Fighting For Those Who Have Been Injured as a Pedestrain in Nevada

In most cases, the pedestrian right-of-way will dominate when determining who is at fault in pedestrian accidents. When pedestrians suffer injuries in car accidents or truck accidents, the driver is usually at fault and held liable for the pedestrian’s injuries. There are also other ways one can be compensated if hit by a car while walking. A qualified Reno pedestrian accident lawyer at Eric A. Stovall, Ltd. offers a free consultation to discuss your injuries.

Do Pedestrians Have the Right Of Way?

Pedestrians have the right of way on sidewalks, crosswalks, and intersections with pedestrian lights. Even if a person does not use a crosswalk when crossing a street, the driver of the vehicle must take care when passing the pedestrian. Yet, car accidents injure more than 65,000 pedestrians and kill more than 4,000 people each year, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). These accidents can happen while individuals are walking or jogging. We can recover payment for medical bills stemming from minor injuries as well as traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries. A settlement or court victory can include damages for loss of income, future earning power, and compensation for pain and suffering.

What to Do After a Pedestrian Accident

Many times, people become disoriented after a pedestrian accident. However, there are steps you should take if you are in a pedestrian accident. These steps include:

  • Checking to ensure you do not have any serious injuries.
  • Contacting the police and remaining at the accident scene.
  • Writing down the names, addresses, and insurance company information of the other parties involved in the accident as well as witnesses contact information.
  • Getting a copy of the police report.
