Accidents Involving Pedestrians in North Las Vegas
The Nevada Department of Transportation predicts that 2021 will be the worst year for traffic deaths and injuries in the state since 2005. Since 2005 has been the best year, 2021 is set to be the worst. As 2017 came to a close, the number of people killed on Nevada’s roads had risen to 370, an almost 30% increase over the previous year’s final tally. More than 250 people were killed in Clark County, which unfortunately is experiencing an alarming uptick in this terrible trend. Driving while impaired by drink or drugs and driving too fast were important factors in these unfortunate outcomes.
By the end of 2021, officials anticipate that, depending on the final number and statistics, as many as ninety pedestrians may have been killed within the state. The risk of hitting a pedestrian increases dramatically when driving distractedly. This includes activities such as texting, making phone calls, and adjusting the radio station. It gets worse, though, because the victims of the calamity are saddled with prolonged emotional anguish, bodily harm, and astronomical bills.
It’s possible that even after a full recovery, victims will have to deal with additional expenses related to their care and missing wages.
