Our Pedestrian Accident Lawyers Provide Personalized Guidance

Pedestrian accidents are often complex, which is why it is essential to contact an experienced pedestrian accident 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.

When you trust your case to Ross, Midian & Breitmayer, LLC, our pedestrian accident lawyers will handle everything connected to your injury claim, including:

  • 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

Our experienced pedestrian accident lawyers are devoted to providing injured individuals with exceptional legal representation. You can count on our services to obtain maximum compensation through a stress-free recovery process.

Our team is available 24/7, so you never have to face these life-changing challenges alone. But don’t take our word for it; review our client testimonials to see what past clients have had to say about our pedestrian accident attorneys.

What Causes Pedestrian Accidents?

Usually, pedestrian accidents involve drivers claiming 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 significantly reduce the likelihood of one occurring.

Distracted Drivers
This can include messing with the radio, driving, texting, or using a cell phone for any other reason while driving.
Speeding decreases a driver’s reaction time and reduces their ability to prevent pedestrian-related accidents.
Weather Conditions
Rain, fog, icy roads, snow, and hail all have the potential to make vehicle and pedestrian traffic difficult and, thus, more likely to end in an accident.
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 and cause an accident. Similarly, pedestrians with poor visibility may mistakenly jaywalk and risk physical harm.
Poor Visibility
Misadjusted mirrors, and improper use or failure to use headlights, also reduce visibility for drivers and pedestrians and can lead to pedestrian-related accidents.
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, they 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 often be tricky and lead to accidents if not properly navigated. When drivers turn left, it is important that they navigate the crossing of the opposite lane of traffic.
