Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in Nevada
Studies surrounding the driving habits of Nevada found that one pedestrian loses their life roughly every 88-minutes in our state. These accidents are often severe and result in catastrophic or fatal injuries due to the fact that victims are completely exposed and without protection.
In many cases, surviving relatives of victims involved in collisions are left with overwhelming mental, emotional, and financial consequences. In many cases, the stacking financial consequences impede on their ability of families to tend to their financial burdens as they move forward after a tragic loss.
For this reason, courts throughout our state provide accident families with various legal options they can pursue to help them move forward from the fatal accident of a loved one and reach their goals moving forward. If your loved one lost their life in a collision, it is in your best interest to reach out to a wrongful death attorney in Nevada to discuss legal options available for you.
