Distracted driving: the high-risk of a pedestrian accident

A pedestrian accident can lead to catastrophic injuries or even death. The serious nature of these types of accidents should motivate drivers to be cautious and vigilant, yet both fatal and nonfatal pedestrian accidents are a continuing problem in Nevada. A pedestrian accident can potentially result in medical bills, loss of income and other monetary damages, all of which can place a significant financial strain on a family. 

Hit by a negligent driver? How to determine liability

A negligent driver has the ability to impact a Nevada family forever. When a negligent driver contributes to or directly causes an accident that results in serious injury or death, it can be complicated to determine who may be financially liable for the damages sustained. If you are a victim of this type of behavior, you may be eligible for financial compensation. 

U-turn decision leads to serious auto accident

Drivers often have to make last-minute decisions behind the wheel, some of which result in a motor vehicle accident. A recent auto accident underscores what can happen when a driver seemingly makes a reckless decision or appears to display a lack of concern for other motorists. In this particular crash, a driver is said to have executed a U-turn in the middle of the road that resulted in serious injuries for three people after a head-on collision. 

After a pedestrian accident, what should a victim do?

A pedestrian accident often leads to serious injuries, simply because the impact of a vehicle is no match for an unprotected person. In the state of Nevada, pedestrians have rights, and it is important to know what to do if an individual is impacted by the actions of a negligent driver. When a pedestrian accident causes injury or death, it is simply to reach out for help from an experienced personal injury lawyer. 

Determining liability from dog bites in Nevada

Dog bites can cause serious injuries and significant emotional trauma, particularly when the victims are young. When dog bites occur, Nevada victims may consider legal action in the form of a personal injury claim against the dog owner. As with any type of personal injury claim, it is important to understand what factors go into determining liability and fault with these types of accidents.
