Pedestrian Accidents

Although accidents involving pedestrians do not receive as much news coverage as other forms of accidents, that does not mean that they are not as dangerous. In fact, pedestrian accidents result in thousands of injuries and deaths every year.

Most pedestrian accidents occur as a result of negligence. Despite pedestrians having the same rights as vehicle operators, they are often not given the same treatment. This is why it is important to contact an attorney if you or a loved one were injured in killed as a result of a pedestrian accident. By contacting one of our attorneys, we can give you advice on what to do next to receive the compensation that you are entitled to.

What are some examples of pedestrian accidents caused by negligence?

Although numerous causes of pedestrian accidents exist, the most common incidents are:

  • Pedestrians being hit in a parking lot or a crosswalk
  • Pedestrians being sideswiped by another vehicle
  • Pedestrians being hit when exiting a vehicle
  • Negligent motorist breaking a traffic law resulting in a pedestrian accident

How can a lawyer help me?

One of the most common problems surrounding pedestrian accidents is that victims wait too long to contact an attorney. The longer you wait to hire a lawyer, the more likely it is that evidence will be lost or destroyed. By contacting a lawyer immediately following an accident, you can take comfort in knowing that someone is fighting to protect evidence and to ensure that you receive the compensation you are eligible for.

Traffic crimes also tend to have statutes of limitations. By not taking immediate legal action, you run the risk of not being able to file any of the legal proceedings that are required in order to receive compensation.

Our attorneys have spent years studying the law. We understand what it takes to find out who is responsible for your injury and we will do whatever it takes to ensure that the liable party pays you the compensation that you deserve.
