Drivers are responsible for watching for pedestrians on or near roadways. When they do not see pedestrians in their path, the result is often a catastrophic or fatal accident. While adults certainly are victims of pedestrian accidents, children are at increased risk because of their height and tendency to run into the street without looking.

The majority of pedestrian accidents involve a collision between a pedestrian and a motor vehicle. This could occur in obvious locations like crosswalks, intersections and parking lots. But it could also occur when pedestrian is in a driveway, an alley, on a school playground or walking through a school zone.
There are times when pedestrians are responsible or partially responsible for their own injuries. But the majority of the time, accidents are caused by driver negligence in the form of distracted driving, drunk driving, speeding, failing to keep a lookout and failing to yield right of way.
In a collision between a pedestrian and a motor vehicle, there is no doubt about which side will fare worse. Pedestrians are much smaller and lighter than cars, and they have no external protection from impact forces. Therefore, pedestrian accidents are likely to be serious or fatal, even at relatively low speeds.
The injury victim and his or her family will need compensation to pay medical bills and replace lost income. We diligently pursue pedestrian injury claims to ensure our clients receive adequate compensation to move forward with their lives.
