How to Prove Liability for Your Pedestrian Accident in Pahrump

The state upholds a fault-based system for resolving all vehicle accidents, including pedestrian accidents. This means that before you are able to recover any compensation for your damages through an auto insurance claim or a personal injury claim, you must accurately identify the driver responsible for causing the accident and secure evidence showing how they caused it.

Most of the pedestrian accidents reported in the Pahrump area happen because of negligence. Distracted driving, speeding, and moving violations like running red lights are a few of the most common examples of how negligence can cause a pedestrian accident. It is also possible for illegal acts like driving under the influence (DUI) of drugs or alcohol to cause a pedestrian accident.

Your Pahrump pedestrian accident law firm can help gather evidence like vehicle computer data, traffic camera footage, witness statements, and physical evidence to help prove liability. Once you have proven exactly who caused your accident and how they caused it, you can proceed with holding them accountable for your damages.

Once you have proven how your accident happened and identified the party responsible, your Pahrump pedestrian accident lawyer can help file your complaint with the court. You must include a complete description of all the damages you are claiming and your proof that the defendant directly caused these damages with their negligence or illegal misconduct.

Recovering Compensation for a Pedestrian Accident in Pahrump

You can file a claim against an at-fault driver’s auto insurance policy, but their insurance alone is unlikely to fully cover all the damages you suffered in your recent accident. Your Pahrump pedestrian accident lawyer can assist you with building a comprehensive personal injury claim that can allow you to recover any damages that available insurance cannot compensate.

Nevada’s personal injury laws allow a plaintiff to claim full compensation for any financial losses they suffered because of the accident the defendant caused. These generally include property damage, medical expenses, and lost income. While the average person can likely identify their immediately recognizable economic damages after an accident, they may struggle to assess the full scope of long-term damages they can claim.

For example, you may not only require immediate medical care but also ongoing rehabilitative treatment. If so, the defendant is liable for all these medical treatment costs. Similarly, you can not only claim compensation for lost wages during your recovery but also for lost earning power if your accident has left you disabled and diminished your ability to work and earn income.

In addition to your economic damages, you also have the right to seek compensation for the pain and suffering you experienced. State law does not limit pain and suffering compensation in most personal injury cases, so this could form the bulk of your total case award if you suffered any severe injuries in your pedestrian accident. An experienced Pahrump pedestrian accident lawyer can help determine a suitable amount to include in your claim.

Resolving Your Personal Injury Claim in Pahrump

The majority of the personal injury claims filed in Pahrump are resolved through the private settlement negotiation process. During this process, the parties involved in the case meet privately to negotiate mutually acceptable terms for resolving the case. As long as the defendant accepts liability for the damages and both parties are willing to compromise, it is possible to end a claim through settlement in a fraction of the time litigation requires.

Unfortunately, settlement isn’t possible for every personal injury claim. A defendant may refuse to accept liability, dispute the damages cited in the plaintiff’s complaint, or the parties may fail to reach a mutually acceptable resolution for a number of possible reasons. In this situation, the plaintiff must prepare for litigation. The attorneys at Easton & Easton will do everything we can to settle your claim but are prepared to litigate for you if necessary.

You could encounter many unexpected challenges in the aftermath of a pedestrian accident. The driver may face criminal charges depending on how they caused the accident, and this could complicate your recovery process while also opening the door to additional compensation. You could encounter problems with an insurance company or have trouble proving the full extent of the damages you suffered.

Whatever your case entails, you can trust the attorneys at Easton & Easton to provide compassionate and responsive legal counsel through every stage of your case. We take time to learn as much as possible about every client we represent, helping them understand the various proceedings they face as they seek compensation for their damages. The sooner you contact our firm, the sooner we can leverage our experience and resources for you.

Pedestrian Accidents FAQs

Q: Is a Driver Always at Fault for Hitting a Pedestrian?

A: A driver will almost always absorb more liability for a pedestrian accident than the pedestrian, even if the pedestrian contributed to causing the accident. Drivers always have a duty of care to avoid hitting pedestrians, even if they cross the street illegally. However, if a pedestrian contributed to causing their accident, it will reduce the amount of compensation they will be able to claim from the defendant for their damages.

Q: How Does Modified Comparative Fault Work?

A: Under the state’s modified comparative fault rule, a plaintiff will lose a percentage of their case award equal to their percentage of fault for causing their damages. As long as their fault percentage is below 50%, their fault percentage is deducted from the case award, and they keep the rest. However, if the plaintiff’s fault is 50% or more, they lose the ability to seek compensation from the defendant and will be responsible for their own damages.

Q: How Long Do You Have to File a Pedestrian Accident Claim in Pahrump?

A: If you intend to file any sort of personal injury claim, you must meet the statute of limitations. For most personal injury claims, the statute of limitation is two years from the date the injury occurred. If you do not file your complaint with the court within this timeframe, you will lose your chance to recover compensation from the defendant.

Q: What Is My Pedestrian Accident Claim Worth in Pahrump?

A: The total potential value of a personal injury claim depends on the extent of the victim’s damages. You have the right to seek full repayment of all economic losses you suffered from the accident, and the defendant is also liable for the pain and suffering they inflicted. An experienced Pahrump pedestrian accident lawyer is your most valuable asset for ensuring you secure the maximum compensation possible for your claim.

Q: How Much Will It Cost to Hire a Pahrump Pedestrian Accident Lawyer?

A: The attorneys at Easton & Easton take personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis. This means you are not required to pay upfront or ongoing attorneys’ fees and will instead only pay a percentage of the final case award we secure for you. Additionally, you only pay this fee if and when we win your case and owe nothing if we are unable to obtain compensation for your damages.

The attorneys at Easton & Easton have years of professional experience handling a wide range of personal injury cases, and we know how damaging any pedestrian accident can be. If you believe you have grounds for legal recourse against another party, we can help.

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!
