Reno has some of the most walkable neighborhoods in all of Nevada. For example, Lerner and Rowe’s Reno personal injury lawyer works in the downtown area (89501), which has a Walkscore of 93, making it the most walkable section of the city. With so many people taking advantage of the city’s walkability, the chances of a pedestrian accident injury are higher in Reno than in other Nevada cities. If you’ve suffered an injury while walking then contact a Reno pedestrian accidents lawyer for immediate assistance.

Reno Pedestrian Accident Causes
Getting into an accident while walking can happen for a wide variety of reasons. Our Reno pedestrian accidents lawyer has successfully represented injury victims that were hurt due to:
- Distracted Driving
- Poor Visibility (Insufficient Lighting, Sign Blockage)
- Drunk Driving
- Reckless Driving
- Poorly Marked Crosswalks and Streets
- Work Zones
- Debris and Obstacles Left on Sidewalks and Walkways
For the last few years, Reno pedestrian accidents have spiked after Daylight Saving Time ends. Executive Director of the Downtown Reno Partnership (DRP) Neoma Jardon said, “Pedestrian accidents really increase like 70%. When the time changes, we want people to really put any distractions down.”
Types of Pedestrian Accident Injuries
Pedestrian accident injuries tend to be more severe than car accident injuries. This is largely because people walking are far more vulnerable and less protected than those riding in a car or on a bicycle or motorcycle. Our Reno pedestrian accidents attorney has successfully represented clients that have suffered from:
- Soft Tissue Damage (Cartilage, Ligaments, Muscles, and Tendons)
- Broken Bones
- Internal Organ Damage
- Traumatic Brain Injuries
- Spinal Cord Damage
- Limb Amputation
In extreme cases, Lerner and Rowe can help you get compensation for a life-altering catastrophic injury or the wrongful death of a loved one.
