Providing Personalized Guidance Through Tough, Challenging Situations

Pedestrian accidents are often complex. Unfortunately, many at-fault drivers flee the scene of the accident out of fear, leaving injured individuals behind. The negligent driver may also deny they were at fault.

It is important to contact an experienced personal injury lawyer after being hit by a car. The insurance company may reach out to you and offer a settlement—keep in mind that the insurance company is not on your side. In fact, this settlement offer is likely far lower than what you deserve. Insurance companies often take advantage of injured victims’ unfamiliarity with the law and their own rights to avoid paying out high-value claims.

  • Reconstructing the accident to collect evidence
  • Collecting witness accounts of the accident (if available)
  • Ascertaining the full value of your case, including the cost of your current and future damages
  • Negotiating with insurance companies to ensure maximum compensation
  • Going to trial if necessary, to obtain the results you deserve

What Causes Pedestrian Accidents?

Pedestrian accidents can be caused by a number of different reasons. Usually, pedestrian accidents involve drivers claiming that they did not see the pedestrian. Although this may be true and unfortunate, in most cases that doesn’t excuse the driver from being responsible for your accident. Knowing what leads to a pedestrian accident can greatly help both pedestrians and drivers avoid being in such accidents.

Distracted Drivers
This can include driving and texting, or using a cellphone for any other reason while driving.
Speeding
Speeding decreases the reaction time that a driver has to stop the car and prevent an accident.
Weather Conditions
Severe weather conditions can make it difficult for drivers, as well as for pedestrians. Weather conditions impacting accidents can include rain, fog, icy roads, snow, hail, or wet roadsides.
Jaywalking
Jaywalking is one of the most common causes of pedestrian accidents. If you were a pedestrian who got injured due to an accident while jaywalking, this may impact the compensation that you are eligible to receive.
Missing Prescription
If drivers with poor visibility are not wearing prescription contacts or glasses, they may miss a road sign or a pedestrian, causing an accident. Similarly, pedestrians with poor visibility may mistakenly jaywalk, risking physical harm.
Poor Visibility
Another example of poor visibility is a misadjusted mirror or improper use of headlights.
Drugs or Alcohol
Medication, drugs, or intoxication can critically impact the severity of a pedestrian accident. Both a driver and a pedestrian may be at fault for using drugs or alcohol. If a pedestrian is intoxicated, it may cause him or her to jaywalk. If a driver is intoxicated, he or she may have blurred or double vision, creating a serious risk of harm to themselves, pedestrians, and other drivers or passengers.
Left Turns
Left turns can oftentimes be tricky, and may lead to accidents if not properly navigated. When drivers are turning left, it is important that they make sure to navigate the crossing of the opposite lane of traffic.
