Depend on an Experienced Las Vegas Pedestrian Accident Lawyer
Pedestrians, like motorcyclists and bicyclists, are vulnerable to catastrophic injury in traffic accidents. Many pedestrian accident victims are hospitalized for an extended time and miss a significant amount of work. Other pedestrians are left permanently disabled, or worse. Whether you have been hurt in a pedestrian accident, or someone close to you has been seriously injured or killed, it is important to speak with an experienced Las Vegas pedestrian accident attorney right away.
With the help of a trusted Las Vegas pedestrian accident lawyer, victims or their loved ones can recover the compensation they deserve. Pedestrian accidents are commonly followed by costly medical bills, rehabilitation expenses, and lost income from inability to work during recovery. These are costs negligent drivers should be burdened with, not pedestrian victims. Negligent motorists should also bear the costs of pedestrian victims’ pain and suffering, disability, disfigurement, and lost earning capacity. It is important to have a Las Vegas pedestrian accident attorney with experience in successfully recovering compensation for these losses.
Safety Tips for Pedestrians in Las Vegas
The following safety tips do more than help keep you safe. Following these precautions show you were acting cautiously in the moments leading up to a pedestrian accident. Consider the following tips the next time you find yourself walking about Las Vegas:
- Use the crosswalk − being seen is critical to being safe, and drivers are more likely to watch for pedestrians at crosswalks than elsewhere
- Look both ways − this helps you decide whether it is safe to cross and signals to motorists your intent to cross
- Obey traffic signals − only enter the intersection if you are given a walking person signal
