How to Hold Negligent Parties Responsible

Negligent, distracted driving is the leading cause of pedestrian accidents, and there are plenty of things to distract drivers in Las Vegas. Drugs and alcohol can play a significant role as well.

Some of the leading causes of pedestrian accidents include:

  • Turning right or left across crosswalks without seeing pedestrians
  • Backing out of driveways or parking spaces without checking for pedestrians
  • Failing to notice and yield to pedestrians on the street
  • Speeding through suburban neighborhoods where children are playing

The sooner you act, the better your chances can be for recovery and compensation.

Nevada state law gives accident victims two years to file a claim before the statute of limitations goes into effect, but you shouldn't wait that long! The more time that goes by, the harder it is to conduct an investigation, demonstrate liability, and collect damages. Whether your injuries put you in the hospital or resulted in minor pains, you need a Las Vegas personal injury lawyer with pedestrian accident experience.

There is no way to undue the accident, but there are ways to help you receive adequate compensation for the damage done. Contact the Law Offices of Steven M. Burris for a free evaluation.
