Las Vegas has one of the highest pedestrian death rates in the United States, with one pedestrian death every five days. The United States saw a rise in pedestrian fatalities in 2016, and we are expecting to see this trend continue for several years. Contributing to the increase in pedestrian fatalities is motorist distractions from the use of smartphones and smart devices, among others. 

Nearly three-quarters of all pedestrian accidents occur between the hours of 6 pm and midnight, prime time on busy walkways in most tourist corridors, such as the Las Vegas Strip.

Understanding Pedestrian Accidents In Las Vegas

With one of the highest death rates for pedestrians, Las Vegas visitors and residents likely wonder exactly why. There are several factors that contribute to that high death rate, like the Las Vegas Strip, alcohol use, and distracted drivers. 

The Growing Concern Of Pedestrian Fatalities

By October of 2023, there were already 55 pedestrian deaths in Las Vegas, already surpassing the number of pedestrian deaths in 2022. These accidents can happen anywhere in Las Vegas but often occur at busy intersections like Boulder Highway, Flamingo Road, and Nellis Boulevard. Anywhere there is a crosswalk on the strip, it is a dangerous place for pedestrians. 

Causes Of Pedestrian Accidents

There are a few main causes of pedestrian accidents that are common, no matter the location, like distracted driving, impaired driving, and poor visibility. But Las Vegas, specifically the Strip, has an even higher rate of both distracted drivers and pedestrians, impaired drivers and pedestrians, and even more difficulty with visibility due to crowds, lights, and traffic. 

Your Rights As A Pedestrian Injury Victim

It’s important to know your rights before you are in an accident. It will give you direction when you are in a stressful situation and help you later down the road if you need to litigate your case. 

Legal Protection For Pedestrians

There are several legal protections in place for pedestrians, including the right of way in crosswalks and regulations and laws that hold motorists accountable for their negligence, whether it’s due to distracted driving or impaired driving. Any accident that involves a collision between a vehicle and a person traveling on foot or bike. 

Seeking Justice And Compensation

Compensation for a pedestrian accident varies due to several factors, like medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, permanent disability or disfigurement, property damage, and funeral expenses. Without the right legal counsel, you likely won’t receive the full potential compensation, so choosing an experienced legal team is a crucial decision.
