If you were struck by a motor vehicle while walking, you could recover compensation for your injuries. In addition to your physical pain, you might also be entitled to damages based on your emotional and financial losses as well. A pedestrian accident lawyer from Greenberg Gross could help you pursue that compensation.
You have the right to hold the negligent motorist who struck you accountable for the pain, suffering, and losses they caused. The best opportunity to do that is by pursuing a personal injury case. While this process can be challenging, our Nevada pedestrian accident lawyer will protect your rights and guide you every step of the way. You can call us today to learn more about your legal options for recovery.
What Is the Average Value of a Pedestrian Accident Injury Case in Nevada?
Many people considering a pedestrian accident lawsuit wonder what the average value of these cases might be. It can help to understand what the average value of a pedestrian accident settlement is, but it is virtually impossible to have a clear picture of what the average value of these cases might be.
There are a few reasons why there is little information available regarding the average value of pedestrian accident cases. First, most settlement details are kept private or covered by non-disclosure agreements. Second, the information that has been made public is not collected in a single place. Together, these factors make it challenging to establish the average value of these cases.
Our attorneys can review the facts of your case to identify the damages you could recover. These types could include:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Rehabilitation expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Lost income and benefits
- Diminished earning ability
- Emotional distress
- Mental anguish
- Loss of consortium
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Loss of enjoyment of life
Our firm could help you understand what your case might be worth by reviewing your medical records, vehicle repair estimates, and other evidence before pursuing your case.
What Can a Nevada Pedestrian Accident Lawyer Do for Me?
You have the right to handle your injury case, but working with a legal professional can make the process easier to manage. Working with an attorney can ensure you seek the appropriate potential compensation and that your case receives the attention it deserves. Once our Nevada pedestrian accident attorney leads your case, they can manage legal deadlines, comply with rules of evidence, and advise you of what to expect throughout the process. Some of the ways an attorney from our firm could help include:
Investigate Your Case
It is important to clearly understand how the pedestrian accident happened. This starts with determining the circumstances around the driver that struck you. Our Nevada injury attorney will evaluate where the accident occurred and other factors, such as the weather or the condition of the road.
They can also speak with witnesses, review police reports, and look at traffic camera surveillance (if available) to determine what happened. The investigation stage is about determining who was at fault for your accident and what compensation you might be entitled to recover.
Advocating for Your Interests
After a pedestrian accident, you can usually count on the driver’s insurance company to try and speak with you. They do this for one reason—to reduce your financial compensation as much as possible. Insurance adjusters could imply you were at fault or urge you to accept an offer that is less than your case’s worth.
Our attorneys can deal directly with insurance companies and other attorneys so that you don’t have to. This can save you time and give you peace of mind.
Filing a Lawsuit
Not every pedestrian accident case will go to trial. In many situations, a settlement will be possible without filing a lawsuit. However, there are also times when litigation is unavoidable. In these cases, the guidance of an attorney with experience is invaluable.
An attorney can navigate the rules of evidence and comply with your case’s legal deadlines. This is important as litigation is arguably the most complex aspect of any pedestrian accident injury case.
How Much does a Nevada Car Accident Lawyer Charge?
It is understandable for a person hurt in a pedestrian accident to be concerned about the cost of hiring legal counsel. However, we offer affordable services for your pedestrian injury case. We charge nothing up front to represent you, and our firm receives payment only if you recover compensation. What’s more, our firm carries all the financial risk with your pedestrian accident injury lawsuit. You can focus on recovering from the accident while we take care of everything else.
We urge you to contact us as soon as you can after the accident. The time to bring forward an injury lawsuit in Nevada is generally two years, per NRS § 11.190(4)(e). According to the same statute, parties pursuing a wrongful death action generally have two years. We will file your lawsuit on time and update you regularly on your case status.
