FAQs for Pedestrian Accident Victims:

“What should I do immediately after a pedestrian accident?”

Your immediate priority should be safety. Seek medical attention for any injuries and contact law enforcement to report the accident. Gather evidence from the scene, including photographs, witness statements, and the driver’s information, to support your claim.

“Do I need to hire a lawyer for my pedestrian accident case?”

While it’s not mandatory, hiring a personal injury lawyer can greatly benefit your case. An experienced lawyer can handle the legal complexities, negotiate with insurance companies, and ensure your rights are protected throughout the claims process.

“How can I prove the driver was at fault for the pedestrian accident?” Proving fault in a pedestrian accident case requires evidence such as witness statements, accident reconstruction reports, and surveillance footage. Your lawyer will conduct a thorough investigation to gather evidence and build a strong case demonstrating the driver’s negligence.

“What compensation am I entitled to for my pedestrian accident injuries?”

You may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, disability, and other losses resulting from the accident. Your lawyer will assess the full extent of your damages and pursue maximum compensation on your behalf.

“What if the driver’s insurance company denies my claim?”

If the driver’s insurance company denies your claim or offers a low settlement, don’t give up hope. Your lawyer can negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf or pursue legal action through a lawsuit to seek the compensation you deserve. 
“What’s the value of my case?”

It depends. It varies on a case-by-case basis under Nevada law. Numerous factors contribute to its valuation such as your involvement in the accident, present and future work capabilities, extent of pain and suffering, earning capacity, lost wages, injury severity, medical expenses, and incident specifics all play roles in determining its value.
