Personal Injury Attorney in Las Vegas

Las Vegas, NV – A pedestrian was struck and killed by a vehicle while crossing Tropicana Avenue. It was reported that the man was crossing the street outside of a marked crosswalk.

The heirs of the deceased man may have a claim against the driver if his negligence was not greater than that of the driver. Nevada law only bars a claim for injuries or death when the claimant’s negligence is greater than that of the other party. The claimant’s recovery will be reduced by the same percentage as his negligence.

While crossing outside of the crosswalk is probably a major contributing cause of the accident, it may not be the only factor, and may not even be the largest contributing factor. A claim for damages needs to analyzed from the perspective as to all of the factors causing the accident. Some factors may additionally include, the driver’s speed, whether the driver properly maintained his lane of travel, the pedestrian’s distance from the curb at the time of impact, and whether the driver was impaired.
