How to Prove Fault for a Pedestrian Accident in Summerlin

The state upholds the fault rule for resolving all vehicle accident claims filed in the state, including pedestrian accidents. Before you will be able to claim any compensation for your damages, you must identify the driver who caused your accident, prove exactly how they caused it, and then prove the full scope of the damages directly resulting from their actions. This may sound straightforward enough, but the reality is your claim may be more complex than you realize.

Your Summerlin pedestrian accident law firm can help secure the evidence you will need to prove liability for your damages. Depending on how and where your accident occurred, evidence you may need could include traffic camera footage, physical evidence from the scene of the accident, the driver’s cell phone records, and testimony from witnesses who saw the accident happen.

Once you have the evidence needed to prove fault for the accident, your Summerlin pedestrian accident lawyer can then assist you in securing the proof you need to show the full extent of your claimable damages. While the average person may be able to recognize immediately noticeable losses they can claim, they are likely to struggle with accurately calculating the full extent of their long-term damages and the value of non-economic damages.

Calculating Your Pedestrian Accident Claim’s Total Value

Under the state’s personal injury statutes, the plaintiff in a personal injury claim has the right to seek full repayment of the economic damages the defendant caused. This includes both immediate and future economic losses directly related to the accident, such as:

  • Property damage. If you lost any personal belongings in the pedestrian accident, the defendant is liable for all associated repair and replacement costs.
  • Medical expenses. Any pedestrian accident has the potential to cause devastating physical injuries. The defendant in your claim is liable for all the medical care you require to reach maximum medical recovery from your injuries, and this includes projected future healthcare costs if you suffered a catastrophic injury of any kind.
  • Lost wages. When you are too injured to work, the defendant is liable for the income you are unable to earn during this time. This also applies to the value of vacation time you need to use in the aftermath of the accident.
  • Lost future income. Many pedestrian accidents result in severe injuries, some of which leave victims disabled. If this applies to your case and you are unable to return to work due to the severity of your injuries, the defendant is liable for the future income you are no longer able to earn. Your Summerlin pedestrian accident lawyer can help calculate the income you could have earned in the future if you hadn’t been injured.

You may be surprised to discover that your case is worth more than you initially anticipated if you have the right legal counsel on your side. However, your case award does not end with your economic damages. You also have the right to seek pain and suffering compensation from the defendant in your claim.

Calculating Pain and Suffering in a Pedestrian Accident Claim

It may seem difficult to apply a monetary value to intangible damages like physical pain or emotional distress, but your Summerlin pedestrian accident lawyer can help determine a suitable amount to include in your claim. There are two methods most attorneys use to calculate pain and suffering compensation for their clients:

  1. The multiplier method is most applicable to plaintiffs who have suffered life-changing injuries. The attorney multiplies the total of their economic damages by a factor that reflects the overall severity of the harm they suffered.
  2. The per diem method is more suited to plaintiffs expected to fully recover from their injuries and focuses on recovery time. The attorney determines an appropriate amount of compensation per day for their client and then multiplies this amount by the number of days it takes the client to fully recover from their injury.

After assessing pain and suffering and other variables, such as punitive damages if the defendant caused your accident through illegal misconduct, you may discover that you are eligible to claim much more than initially anticipated. When you choose Easton & Easton to represent your case, our goal is to help you recover as much compensation as state law allows for your damages.

You have a limited time in which to build your case, and the sooner you speak with a Summerlin pedestrian accident lawyer, the more likely you are to succeed with your recovery efforts. The attorneys at Easton & Easton are ready to listen to your story, help develop a comprehensive legal strategy, and guide you through the difficult proceedings ahead of you.

Pedestrian Accidents FAQs

Q: Is Hit and Run a Crime?

A: Yes. If a driver hits a pedestrian and flees the scene of the accident, they are likely to face criminal prosecution. Additionally, if they caused catastrophic or fatal injuries, they are likely to be charged with a felony. It is also illegal for a driver to hit a vehicle in motion or a parked vehicle and flee the scene of the accident.

Q: Can a Pedestrian Be at Fault for Their Accident in Summerlin?

A: Yes, it is possible for a pedestrian to incur partial liability for their accident if they were negligent and contributed to causing the accident. The most common way for this to apply is “jaywalking,” a term for crossing a street outside of a designated crosswalk. If a pedestrian is found partially liable for causing their accident, they lose a percentage of their case award to reflect their shared fault.

Q: How Much Is a Pedestrian Accident Claim Worth in Summerlin?

A: If you are able to prove that another party is directly responsible for causing your recent pedestrian accident in Summerlin, you have the right to seek full repayment of all economic losses resulting from the accident. Additionally, the plaintiff has the right to claim as much pain and suffering compensation as they believe to be appropriate to reflect the harm they suffered. There is no limit on pain and suffering compensation in most Nevada personal injury claims.

Q: Will I Win More Compensation if I Hire an Attorney?

A: You are more likely to maximize your final case award if you have an attorney’s representation. Not only can your attorney help you meet the procedural requirements of your case and streamline your proceedings, but they may also uncover avenues of compensation that you may have overlooked on your own. Legal counsel you can trust increases your chance of winning your case and recovering as much compensation as possible for your damages.

Q: What Does a Summerlin Pedestrian Accident Lawyer Cost to Hire?

A: The team at Easton & Easton accepts personal injury clients on a contingency basis. With this type of billing arrangement, the client only pays their attorney after they win their case, and their contingency fee is a percentage of the total compensation won from the defendant. There is no fee at all if the attorney cannot obtain a recovery for the client, so there is no economic risk in hiring an attorney with this type of billing policy.

The attorneys at Easton & Easton have extensive professional experience handling a wide range of personal injury cases in the Summerlin area, and we are ready to put this experience to work for you in your recovery efforts. If you believe another party is liable for your damages and you intend to seek compensation, contact Easton & Easton today to schedule a consultation with a Summerlin pedestrian accident lawyer you can trust with your case.

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.

If you are ever in need of a personal defense attorney Easton & Easton is the firm to represent you!
