Building Your Case for Compensation
When you work with our pedestrian accident attorneys, we have a specialized process in place for successfully building your case for compensation. We take calculated steps to use the legal discovery system to your advantage to build strong evidence to show the other side why you deserve the compensation you are asking for. First, your injury attorney works with you to gather all the facts surrounding the incident, including the initial police or injury report. If possible, they may also investigate the actual scene of the accident. Next, we utilize our extensive network of specialists, including accident reconstruction experts, medical specialists, vocational experts, and forensic specialists to help us use the facts of your accident to prove what is asserted in your claim.
We may also work with your doctor to identify your prognosis and a complete care plan for recovery. Throughout your case, we file essential legal documents, including the initial complaint, a summons, and motions if necessary. Our personal injury lawyers also work to diligently and accurately value your claim. Valuing your case is a crucial part of getting the full amount of compensation you are owed, so we make sure to include all categories of damages possible, including both economic and non-economic damages like pain and suffering and emotional distress. While we are building your case, we also participate in negotiations with the other side in hopes of getting you a settlement before trial. However, we are willing to take your case to trial if the other party doesn’t agree to compensate you fairly for your injuries. It’s important not to delay in contacting an experienced injury attorney to begin working on your case immediately.
Causes and Compensation for Pedestrian Accidents
With so many people walking and driving around Las Vegas, it is easy to understand how and where pedestrian accidents occur. In fact, 2013 statistics show that once every six days a pedestrian was killed in the Las Vegas Valley area during that year.
One of the most common causes of pedestrian accidents is collisions with cars. Most of these accidents are caused by driver negligence. The most common causes for this type of accident include:
- Driver is under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Driver is distracted by texting, talking on the phone or using another gadget in the car.
- Driver is exceeding the speed limit and cannot stop in time.
- Driver is driving aggressively and not paying attention to their surroundings.
- Driver runs a red light, stop sign or fails to yield to pedestrians.
Injuries sustained in a pedestrian/car accident are often catastrophic. The impact of the car itself and the impact on the ground afterward can lead to severe trauma to the head, neck, and spine. Severe bone breaks and contusions are common. Facial fractures and broken teeth are also seen in these types of accidents. Sadly, many insurance carriers fail to see the severity of these types of accidents and often want to make a small offer for compensation. Many even try to blame the pedestrian for the event and do not want to cover any of the expenses associated with the accident. Because of this, it is very important to consult with a pedestrian accident attorney as soon as possible after the event.
Don't Settle With Insurance Companies
After the Accident
Victims of this type of accident will need medical care to make a recovery. It is important that they have access to this care without issue as to payment for the services. These victims also have the right to seek financial compensation for lost wages and other financial issues that may have arisen from the accident. A qualified pedestrian accident attorney can make sure that the victim received everything they are entitled to under the law.
For family members that may have lost a loved one to a pedestrian accident, an attorney may be able to file a wrongful death suit on their behalf. This type of case helps the remaining family members cover the expenses related to the loss of their loved one.

Adam Kutner Reviews & Testimonials
“I was at a stoplight and I heard some screeching and I looked in my rear-view mirror and I saw a truck go around me real quick, but the car behind him didn’t have a chance and hit me. A friend of mine told me about Adam Kutner and so I went in to see them and it was very, very pleasant under the circumstances and they handled everything, and I wasn’t worried about anything, it was great. The first thing they did was they helped me find a chiropractor and I went a few months and I feel better now. I was really happy with my settlement, in my opinion he is the best lawyer in as Vegas.” – Phyllis L. 5/5 Stars
