Pedestrian, 55, in crosswalk dies in Nevada car collision

Pedestrian accidents are a growing concern in Nevada and across the nation. Drivers are increasingly distracted, and this often leads to them hitting people because they are not paying attention.

Since pedestrians are vulnerable, fatalities are common in a car collision. For people who have been hurt or lost a loved one in a pedestrian-car accident, it is important to have legal advice to consider a lawsuit.

A man, 55, who was crossing the street in nearby Sparks and using the crosswalk was hit by a car. He was declared dead at the scene of the crash. The accident happened at around 6:30 p.m. According to the accident investigation, the vehicle was going north when the crash occurred. The driver did stay at the scene and is being cooperative. It is not believed that the driver had been drinking or using drugs, nor was speed an issue. The investigation is continuing.

When a pedestrian is hit by a car, there is no protection to shield that person from being seriously hurt. Spinal cord injuries, brain damage, broken bones and other problems often result. In the worst-case scenario, the person will die. This can leave a family without the companionship of a loved one, lost income and the need to pay for a funeral. Having legal advice is important for maximizing compensation after a wrongful death in a car accident.

An investigation is ongoing to determine why a driver crashed into a pedestrian as that pedestrian crossed the street in a marked crosswalk. The man walking died at the site of the accident. For his family, it might be advisable to contact a law firm that has a history of helping people who have lost loved ones in car accidents. This is the initial step to filing a claim and being compensated.
