Nevada Personal Injury Lawyers Representing Accident Victims in Gerlach
Situated just outside of Reno’s bustling entertainment culture, the small community of Gerlach is a census-designated community in Washoe County, Nevada.
Located in the northwestern portion of Nevada, Gerlach measures only 206 square miles in size and is home to no more than 210 people. Despite its small size, Gerlach attracts a number of tourists due to its proximity to Black Rock Desert and other mining sites. The city was founded in the early 1900’s, during the construction of the Western Pacific Railroad, and is known today for its proximity to the popular Burning Man festival.
Although Gerlach’s population is small, those in the small community still face a number of risks, including those relating to pedestrian accidents, either nearby or in nearby cities and major centers.
Pedestrian Accidents in Gerlach
One of Nevada’s largest and most well-known cities, Las Vegas, was ranked as the sixth most dangerous city market for pedestrians, with more than 420 pedestrians losing their lives between 2000 and 2009. Unfortunately, pedestrian fatalities in Nevada only rose in later years, with Las Vegas becoming an epicenter for pedestrian incidents in Nevada.
Pedestrian accidents may occur as a result of:
- Loud music
- Alcohol and/or drug impairment
- Distracted driving
Serious injury or fatalities in pedestrian accidents are on the rise in recent years. As a result, those involved in accidents due to driver negligence may be entitled to:
- Lost wages
- Medical and/or rehabilitation costs
- Emotional damages
- Permanent disability
In Nevada, and other communities across the country, it is imperative for victims of pedestrian accidents to seek the advice of appropriate legal counsel. Although you may feel okay, there could be severe medical conditions as a result of your incident, including internal damage. If not handled appropriately, severe medical damage may occur in the future.
