Pedestrian deaths account for a third of road related deaths in 2017. Statistics say that of 303 total road related deaths, 99 of them were pedestrian deaths. A statistic that increased dramatically in 2017.
Wrongful Death Nevada
In Nevada there is a general rule of thumb that Pedestrians have the right of way on road ways. Drivers must always yield to Pedestrians. With a rise in DUIs (Alcohol and other drug related DUIs) the roads have become more dangerous than ever before.
Every Case Matters
This rise in danger on our roads is why every case matters. Not just the cases where people are seriously injured or die from crash related injuries. Every time someone fails to follow a simple safety rule, every time someone drinks and gets into their vehicle, and every time someone fails to yield to a pedestrian.
This is why we treat EVERY CASE as if it could have resulted in a Wrongful Death case. Because, frankly, that driver who made an unsafe lane change and cut you off might one day do that again and cause even more serious injury.
