        Pedestrian accident lawsuit FAQs

        When a pedestrian is hit by a car, the driver must stop their vehicle. They must render medical aid or arrange medical assistance to help the injured person. Also, they must provide the pedestrian with their driver’s license and vehicle information. When a pedestrian is hit by a car, the police may respond to the scene and prepare an accident report. The victim may be entitled to financial compensation. However, they must take steps to file a claim for compensation.

        If you get hit in a crosswalk, the parties should call the police. In fact, the driver must call law enforcement. The police may respond and investigate, just like they would investigate any accident involving multiple parties. The police will then work to determine who had the right of way and whether you were lawfully in the crosswalk. The vehicle driver may owe you financial compensation, and the amount you receive will depend on your injuries and other losses.

        Nevada pedestrian accident laws are found in NRS 11.190 and Nevada negligence liability. The laws state that the driver is responsible for injuries to the victim if the accident results from the driver’s negligent actions. In other words, if the accident is the driver’s fault, they owe the victim damages for their losses. Nevada is an at-fault state, so no minimum amount of damages or injuries applies to Nevada pedestrian accident laws.

        Yes, comparative negligence applies to pedestrian accidents in Nevada. If the pedestrian has some level of blame for the accident, their recovery may be reduced. However, it may not be completely barred. You may still recover something. Speak to an attorney for pedestrian accidents to understand how comparative negligence may apply and how to fight back against false allegations of comparative negligence.

        Yes, Nevada pedestrian accident claims have a two-year statute of limitations. That means, in most cases, you must begin your claim within two years of the accident. Telling the insurance company about the accident isn’t enough. You must formally file a complaint to beat the deadline.

        Adam S. Kutner reviews and testimonials

        I needed an attorney because I couldn’t deal with the accident on my own, so I needed someone else’s opinion about my accident.

        Well I heard about Adam Kutner through an associate of mine and I chose to seek him because I heard of him before also, so I thought he would be the best option for me.

        I was very happy with my settlement and it came quicker than I thought, in just a couple months I received a check in the mail.

        When I recommend Adam Kutner I would tell them that the settlement comes very quickly, and he is very helpful with transportation and whatever else you may need.”
