Personal Injury Lawyers Representing Accident Victims in Winchester

The unincorporated town of Winchester, Nevada, though still considered to be a part of Las Vegas, was originally founded as “Paradise A” in the spring of 1951 and was later renamed Winchester in 1953. In this small 4.3 square miles of land reside close to 30,000 individuals, with the majority being between the ages of 25 and 64, though even more visitors roam the streets of this small community as Winchester contains a part of the Las Vegas Strip.

Serving Winchester Residents and Visitors

Tightly packed and booming with activity, many parts of Winchester are flooded with happy travelers and hard working residents on a daily basis. Unfortunately, this also is often what leads to dangerous pedestrian accidents.

A recent report revealed that Las Vegas was even deadlier than Manhattan, Los Angeles, Phoenix and Chicago when it came to pedestrian fatalities, though even more individuals are temporarily or permanently injured every year on the streets of Vegas.

Pedestrian Accidents Can Happen Any Time

Pedestrian accidents can happen at any point throughout someone’s day and are almost always unexpected. For example, many pedestrians, trusting the “cross walk” indicator light, begin to make their way across the street when a vehicle runs a red light.

This can occur for a number of reasons:

  • Distracted driving
  • Speeding
  • Failing to acknowledge to a pedestrian’s right of way when crossing an intersection
  • Drug/alcohol impairment
  • Texting

Can a Pedestrian Be at Fault?

Though the old adage of “the pedestrian has the right of way” is almost always true, there are some common scenarios in which the pedestrian may be partially or fully at fault:

  • If the pedestrian jaywalks or crosses outside of a crosswalk
  • If the pedestrian is intoxicated when entering a highway or street
  • If the pedestrian has chosen to walk along bridges, highways or causeways where access is prohibited
  • If the pedestrian crosses despite the traffic signal reading “Do Not Walk”

The fact of the matter is, however, that even if the pedestrian is partially at fault for causing the accident, there’s also a good chance that the driver of the car will also be partially at fault (i.e. a pedestrian may have jaywalked, but the driver was driving above the speed limit). In these situations, pedestrians and drivers may be subjected to the “comparative negligence” rule, which results in a reduced amount of compensation received by the injured party.

Whether the operator of the vehicle is solely at fault or if there is any question about your involvement in the injury, the help of an experienced personal injury attorney is a necessity if injured parties hope to receive fair compensation for their damages. We at the law office of Bertoldo, Baker, Carter, and Smith have dedicated several years to representing victims of pedestrian accidents.
