Scenarios That Put Pedestrians at Risk
Motorists need to pay close attention and be cautious whenever pedestrians are around. The slightest moment of negligence could cause a crash that severely injures the pedestrian. Certain driving conditions and situations can further heighten the risk of a pedestrian accident occurring.
Places and situations where pedestrian accidents tend to happen include:
- Crowded parking lots
- Busy intersections
- Streets without crosswalks
- Dimly lit suburban areas
After a pedestrian accident, you should take photographs of the scene, including the traffic and road conditions. If you remembered to take these photos after your accident, then please let our attorneys see them. Some of the best evidence that we can use to prove that you were not at fault for the accident might be what you were able to collect then and there.
Are Bicyclists Considered Pedestrians?
Bicyclists are sometimes compared to pedestrians, but they must follow the same rules of the road as a motorist, which makes them distinctly different from a pedestrian. If you were hit by a bicyclist while you were walking down the sidewalk, then you might be able to file a pedestrian accident claim against them. Many counties do not allow bicyclists to ride on the sidewalk, so the liability for your accident could be placed entirely on the cyclist who hit you.
Our law firm is also equipped to handle claims for bicyclists who were hurt by pedestrians who stepped in front of them suddenly. If you were using a bike lane when someone walked into you, causing a serious accident, please let us know by dialing (702) 505-8115.
Statute of Limitations for Pedestrian Accident Claims
Nevada has a two-year statute of limitations on most personal injury cases, including pedestrian accident cases. From the date of your accident, you have two years to file your claim against the liable party. When two years pass, the court will block any attempts you take to recover compensation.
