Car accidents often end with both parties sustaining some sort of injury. This is not the case when pedestrians are involved.

Is A Driver Always at Fault When Hitting A Pedestrian?
Pedestrians have several rights regardless of whether they are on public, commercial or residential property. Nevada laws are meant to protect pedestrians. This is very important due to the thriving tourist industry. One important law is that drivers must exercise care in avoiding collisions with pedestrians. This means that if they can avoid hitting you, they have a duty to do so. Drivers also have the duty to exercise caution when a pedestrian is near a highway or street.
At D.R. Patti & Associates want you to stay safe, so even if you have the right of way, do not take the chance of being injured if a driver is acting negligently. If you see that a driver is texting while driving, it may be best to wait for the next crosswalk sign, just in case the driver fails to stop. It is also important to remember that when there is no crosswalk, you have a duty to yield to traffic. It is important to not put yourself in danger by doing things such as crossing streets diagonally, hitchhiking or walking near the street while intoxicated.
