Nevada Personal Injury Lawyers Representing Accident Victims in McGill
The small town of McGill is a census-designated place in White Pine County, Nevada.
The community, once known as Smelter after its mining operations, has a long history as a ranch community. Named for William McGill, one of the original settlers in the area, the town was long known as a ranching community, before being bitten by the mining bug.
Like many towns in eastern Nevada, McGill is a very small community, measuring roughly 1.1 square miles in size, with a population of roughly 1,150 people. Situated along Route 93, the community is located far from the urban sprawls of Las Vegas, Reno and Salt Lake City.
Although it is nestled away from many of the state’s high traffic areas, like any community it faces risks to those populating its streets and sidewalks.
Nevada is no stranger to pedestrian accidents. For the period between 2000 and 2009, Las Vegas, the state’s tourist epicenter, ranked as the sixth most dangerous metro area for pedestrians. In 2012, pedestrian incidents in the city increased a whopping 61 percent, due in large part to the city’s heavy foot and automobile traffic.
Some pedestrian accidents occur as a result of:
- Distracted driving
- Alcohol and/or drug impairment
- Loud music
Pedestrian accidents can result in severe injury or fatalities, and are typically the result of some form of negligence – often driver negligence.
Those who have been injured in a pedestrian incident may face serious financial difficulties associated with:
- Permanent disability
- Emotional damages
- Lost wages
- Medical and/or rehabilitation costs
Victims of these kinds of incidents often face lasting consequences of their injuries, and require an experienced personal injury attorney to help pursue damages on their behalf. Although you may feel okay, there could be severe underlying medical conditions as a result of your incident, including internal damage or brain damage. If not handled appropriately, there may be severe medical repercussions in the future.
If You Have Been in a Pedestrian Accident
If you or someone you know has been a victim in a pedestrian accident, the first step in the process is filing a formal police report. After that, you may require the assistance of a personal injury attorney to recover any damages that you may be owed, as a result of your incident.
In Nevada, the personal injury attorneys at Bertoldo, Baker, Carter and Smith understand the many complexities of personal injury cases. As these incidents often prove to be particularly traumatic, and may have life-changing consequences, it is important to retain counsel who offers support and encouragement as you recover.
