Pedestrian Accident Attorney in Reno
According to traffic statistics by the National Center for Statistics and Analysis, one pedestrian is killed by a motor vehicle every 113 minutes and injured every 8 minutes in the United States. As a pedestrian you usually have the right of way. However, you still should only enter a crosswalk when instructed to do so by a traffic device and should always look both ways. But no matter how careful we all are when crossing a road, some accidents are just out of our control. When a pedestrian is injured by a motorist, the pedestrian is usually the party left with severe injuries.
If you were hurt or struck by a negligent motorist while crossing a road, you may be entitled to legal compensation. Our personal lawyers in Reno can guide you through the process, and see that you are able to recover the highest compensation possible. We are passionate about pursuing justice, and we believe you deserve nothing but our undivided attention and efforts.
