Injuries in Las Vegas Pedestrian Wrecks

Las Vegas, NV - Two Hospitalized in Pedestrian Accident at Wigwam Ave & Redwood StThe early state numbers published by the Nevada Department of Transportation indicate that 2021 was the worst year since 2006 for car accidents in the Silver State, according to official statements. By the end of December, over 390 individuals had died on the streets of Nevada, a 21 percent rise from the year 2020. In and around Clark County, where the situation was somewhat worse, there were around 250 deaths.

Unfortunately, excessive speed and driver impairment were the major causes of these fatal collisions, and this was especially true when pedestrians were involved. Across the state, pedestrian fatalities are also on the rise, with more than eighty persons expected to perish in 2021 alone. When a victim is hit by an irresponsible motorist, their chance of suffering life-threatening injuries or even death is significantly raised.

This kind of accident often leaves victims with chronic, persistent physical ailments that may last the rest of their lives. In the event that victims recover completely from their injuries, they may be astonished by the rapidly escalating costs of medical care, lost income, and future wages, as well as other expenses. Nonetheless, when a victim is injured or even killed in one of these incidents, the devastated family members are forced to face exorbitant medical costs and burial costs, all while trying to grieve their deceased loved one.
