Pedestrian and Biking Accidents
Pedestrian and bicycle accidents have become an increasingly common occurrence in Nevada, particularly in Las Vegas. Rarely does a day go by without a crosswalk accident or bicycle crash causing injuries to those walking or biking along the Strip and other heavy traffic areas. Many times, an inattentive or drunk driver causes the accident, meaning that the bicyclist or pedestrian suffered catastrophic injuries when the car slammed into him or her.

Compensation In Pedestrian And Bike Accident Cases
In addition to compensation in a personal injury lawsuit, there are other sources that can help you maximize the payment you receive.
If you or a member of your family was injured in a pedestrian or biking accident, several policies may cover your medical expenses: your health insurance, the uninsured motorist and medical provisions in your auto insurance policy or that of another household member, and auto insurance covering the vehicle that hit you.
In addition, we will investigate the possibility of a product liability claim against the manufacturer or distributor of defective equipment that may have contributed to injuries sustained in such accidents.
