Drivers Often Negligent in Pedestrian Accidents
Personal injury attorneys look for causes of pedestrian accidents, including driver distraction, impairment, speeding or disobeying traffic laws
Pedestrians, or people traveling by foot, always have the "right of way" around vehicles, however, pedestrian injury and death still happens to thousands of pedestrians every year. Sometimes these pedestrian accidents are the result of someone else's negligence.
Whatever the cause of your pedestrian accident, you need protection
Pedestrians often get hit by cars through no fault of their own. Drivers may be guilty of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, driving while distracted, speeding, not yielding to pedestrians at crosswalks, disobeying traffic laws, and disregarding traffic or weather conditions.
Children are especially at risk for pedestrian-related bus accidents, and an elderly person may suffer a more severe pedestrian injury after a slip and fall. All pedestrian injury accident victims need to know and protect their rights, regardless of the cause.
Proper treatment after your pedestrian injury accident is the top priority
A pedestrian accident can result in a wide range of injuries that may require expensive medical treatment and rehabilitation. For pedestrians injured by vehicles or slip and falls, working with an attorney is essential. Innocent victims deserve compensation. Even victims who are partly at fault for a pedestrian accident may be eligible for compensation. It all comes down to who was using "reasonable care under the circumstances."
