North Las Vegas Pedestrian Accident Attorney

North Las Vegas is a busy area, and many pedestrians walk near traffic every day without issue. However, pedestrian accidents can and do happen, and when they do, they almost always result in severe damage to the pedestrian. If you or a family member recently experienced this type of accident, it is vital to know your rights and your options for recovering your damages. The driver who hit you is responsible for any financial losses you incur from the accident, and you have the right to seek compensation for future damages and your pain and suffering.

How to Recover From a Pedestrian Accident in North Las Vegas

The first step in recovering from any personal injury in North Las Vegas is proving exactly how the injury occurred. The victim needs to identify the defendant responsible for their injury and prove that they were negligent or intentionally harmful in some manner resulting in their damages. If you were hurt while walking, you could file a claim with the driver at fault’s auto insurance. However, while this can provide some valuable initial compensation, it will be unlikely to fully cover the entire scope of the damages you suffered from the accident.

A personal injury claim can yield a more robust recovery. Nevada’s personal injury laws enable the plaintiff to claim full repayment of all the financial losses they suffered due to the action of the defendant, specifically those not covered by insurance. Your North Las Vegas pedestrian accident attorney can potentially help hold the defendant accountable for the immediate and future medical treatment your injuries require, the income you cannot earn after the accident, and the pain and suffering you experienced.

Easton & Easton can work quickly to help resolve your case as efficiently as possible for as much compensation as possible. We know how to uncover all the various avenues of compensation that are available to a client in the aftermath of another party’s negligence or misconduct, and we know how to streamline your case proceedings as well. Our goal is to help you recover as fully as possible in the shortest time possible.

North Las Vegas Pedestrian Accident Lawyer FAQs

Q: When Should You Contact an Attorney After a Pedestrian Accident?

A: If you are hurt in a pedestrian accident, you will likely require immediate medical attention. Once your condition is stable, you should reach out to legal counsel you can trust as soon as possible to start working on your recovery. The more time your attorney has to work on your case, the more likely you are to not only succeed with the claim but also maximize your compensation.

Q: Can a Pedestrian Be at Fault for Their Accident in North Las Vegas?

A: The state upholds a modified comparative negligence law, meaning it is possible for a plaintiff to share fault with a defendant for causing their claimed damages but still have grounds to recover compensation. However, they will lose a portion of their case award to reflect their shared liability, and they cannot claim compensation if they are 50% or more at fault. A pedestrian may face partial liability if they jaywalked or stepped directly in front of oncoming traffic outside of a crosswalk or if they were walking along a highway or other road where pedestrian foot traffic is prohibited.

Q: How Long Is There for Me to File a Civil Suit for a Pedestrian Accident in North Las Vegas?

A: There is a two-year statute of limitations for all personal injury cases in Nevada. This means that you have only two years from when the accident happened to file your claim; otherwise, you lose the right to claim compensation from the at-fault driver. You can file a claim against their auto insurance for some initial compensation, but you face an even shorter time limit to do so. Speak with a North Las Vegas pedestrian accident attorney as soon as possible after your accident to preserve your chance to recover compensation for your damages.

Q: How Much Can I Claim in Compensation for a Catastrophic Injury?

A: Pedestrian accidents have a high chance of causing catastrophic injuries. A personal injury qualifies as catastrophic when it causes permanent damage to the victim. They could face lifelong disabilities or long-term medical conditions that interrupt their everyday life in various ways. The total value of your catastrophic injury claim depends on the overall level of harm you suffered and whether the accident caused any permanent damage. Your North Las Vegas pedestrian accident attorney is your most important asset when it comes to maximizing your case award.

Q: How Much Will It Cost Me to Hire a North Las Vegas Pedestrian Accident Attorney?

A: The team at Easton & Easton has no desire to add to your already challenging financial circumstances in the aftermath of a pedestrian accident. We do not charge upfront or ongoing attorneys’ fees for our representation. Instead, we take all personal injury clients on a contingency fee basis. This means that you only pay a legal fee if and when we win compensation on your behalf. If our team cannot secure compensation for your damages for any reason, there is no fee.

The attorneys at Easton & Easton have years of successful personal injury cases behind us thanks to our commitment to client-focused counsel.

What Our

Coming out of my first auto accident as an adult, a very difficult and scary time to navigate and understand, I was so incredibly thankful to have been put in contact with Easton & Easton. I honestly was lost with how to handle paperwork, doctors, medical costs and what next steps were, and from the moment I spoke with Travis Easton and my case manager Katie, my mind was put at ease. They have made the entire process stress free for me as I recovered, and I am so grateful for them and their genuine care for my case. Communication from the start has been fantastic, especially making clear what my expectations for the entire process would look like, and I truly believe they have my best interest at heart. 100% I would recommend their firm for anyone that is needing representation!

Sofia Sanchez

I could not be more pleased with the services provided by the Law Offices of W. Douglas Easton. The senior partner Mr. Easton took the time to meet with me and my wife while I was still in the hospital, where he gave my family hope that there was light at the end of a very long, and very dark tunnel. Matt Easton then worked my case, and because of his dedication, experience and expertise I received a settlement that was larger than I EVER thought possible. It was truly astounding! Matt and the entire team at Easton & Easton looked out for me throughout my recovery, and in the end they gave me my life back. Five stars is not enough. Thanks Matt! Thanks Easton & Easton!

Logan Ross

I can’t say enough amazing things about my experience with Travis Easton at Easton & Easton. Travis and his entire team (Katie, Amy, Dee, Michelle, & Araceli) are phenomenal. It provided me a lot of comfort to know I was being so well taken care of. I was especially impressed that every document for the case was perfectly written and specific to me. Nothing was generic, which shows the level of care and attention they put into each individual case. I had such a great experience and would highly recommend Travis Easton and his firm to anyone going through a personal injury. Travis took a bad situation and made the best of it for me. Thank you again, I’m forever grateful!!


Ashlee A.

Retaining Easton and Easton was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made! From the initial consultation to our final meeting, they were nothing short of exceptional. I was forced to retain their services after firing my previous attorney for not handling the case properly. I dealt with Gabriel and Brian (partner) exclusively throughout the case. They did as promised and were great communicators throughout the entire process. I will recommend them to anyone I know going through a personal injury case. They were ultimately able to untangle the mess caused by my previous lawyer and get a result that I was extremely happy with. Their staff is exceptional as well and provided top notch customer service. Amera was also extremely helpful and easy to deal with as well.

Jeffrey N.

I was in a pretty bad car accident and decided to have Easton & Easton represent me, Travis Easton to be specific. Travis Easton and his paralegal made the whole process effortless. They were so understanding and helpful! The entire thing was a gigantic mess, yet Travis managed to make it run like clockwork. I would HIGHLY recommend Easton & Easton! If you are ever in need of a personal defense attorney Easton & Easton is the firm to represent you!

Mark B.

They are the best law firm in Orange County period. Choosing them to represent me was the best decision of my life.
My life changed in a matter of seconds after a catastrophic spinal cord injury that left me disabled. Brian Easton and his team worked on my case non stop for 3 years and provided me the justice I deserved. I couldn’t have been more content.
I was treated with utmost respect and I felt like I was being represented by a close family member. The responses to my questions were quick and clear. What E & E has done for me is phenomenal.
My sincere thanks to Brian, Matt, Travis, Doug, Gabriel and Amera. They are what they are because of their dedication to provide high quality and professional service to their clients.

Brian Easton and his team, Gabe Mendoza and Amera Hajali, helped me during a very difficult time in my life. I had a significant injury from a car accident, and wound up seeking out Easton & Easton when I was having difficulties getting help from my doctors. The Easton team took a lot of stress off of me while acting as my advocates to help me get the care I needed, and saw my case all the way through to a healthy settlement.

They are the BEST!

Jennifer P.

I would highly recommend Easton & Easton.
I was rear ended on my home and pushed into a semi-truck. I was not sure how to go about even using an attorney.
Brian, Gab and Amera were so good about helping me thru the process and representing me.
I was able to concentrate on getting myself better knowing they had my back, taking care of the details and keeping me informed along the way
