Pedestrian Accidents in Nevada
Pedestrian accident cases are rarely straightforward. Usually, the at-fault driver’s insurance company will do anything to reduce a settlement payout as much as possible. They could even try to blame you for the accident. In order to be successful, pedestrian accident cases demand the meticulous gathering of evidence and strict attention to detail.
Your Nevada pedestrian accident attorney will use photographs, video surveillance, police reports, and eyewitness accounts to prove the driver’s negligence. After collecting proof of your lost wages and your medical records, your personal injury lawyer will negotiate a fair settlement that covers all of your damages.
