Driver Behavior That Causes Pedestrian Accidents
Pedestrians in Nevada are afforded the right of way in nearly all situations. Even when there is no clear crosswalk, motorists have to do everything in their power to yield to the pedestrian and prevent a collision. This is not an invitation for pedestrians to jaywalk, as this is still an illegal activity, but it does point out that liability can and should often fall on the shoulders of the motorist in a pedestrian accident case.
Drivers may increase the chance of a pedestrian accident if they:
- Use their smartphones while driving, such as texting behind the wheel.
- Drive while intoxicated.
- Speed through neighborhoods and parking lots.
- Drive without headlights at night.
- Drive recklessly, such as rounding corners dangerously.
- Drive too closely to parked vehicles.
Injuries Suffered in Pedestrian Accidents
In the average Nevada pedestrian accident, the person not in the car is highly likely to suffer severe injuries as a result of the driver’s behavior.
Some catastrophic yet common injuries reported in pedestrian accidents include:
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
- Spinal cord damage
- Permanent disfigurement
- Bone breaks
The cost of medical treatment for a pedestrian’s injuries can be steep. It is not unusual for a pedestrian to require extensive hospitalization and ongoing rehabilitation after a crash. Our Nevada personal injury lawyers are insistent on fighting for every penny deserved by our pedestrian accident clients, for we know every single one counts.
