Frequently Asked Questions

If you or a loved one has been involved in a pedestrian accident, you may be entitled to compensation. The best way to determine whether you have a case is to speak with an experienced pedestrian accident lawyer. At Shook & Stone, we offer free consultations where we will review your case and advise you of your legal options.

If you are involved in a pedestrian accident, the most important thing to do is seek medical attention. Even if you do not think you are injured, it is important to be examined by a doctor. After you have received medical attention, you should contact a pedestrian accident lawyer as soon as possible. An experienced lawyer will be able to investigate the accident and help you recover the compensation you are entitled to receive.

At Shook & Stone, we represent pedestrian accident victims on a contingency fee basis. This means that we do not get paid unless we recover compensation for our clients. If we are successful in recovering compensation, our fee will be a percentage of the settlement or verdict we obtain on your behalf. You will never have to pay any upfront costs or hourly fees.

In Nevada, the statute of limitations for filing a pedestrian accident claim is two years. This means that you have two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit. If you do not file your lawsuit within this time frame, you will be forever barred from doing so. Therefore, it is important to contact a lawyer as soon as possible after you have been involved in an accident.
