Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrian accidents occur when a self-propelled or motor vehicle collides with a person on foot. Because pedestrian accidents often occur on crosswalks, sidewalks or off-road paths, pedestrian accidents are usually caused by negligent acts on the part of the vehicle operator. However, road conditions and traffic signal as well as property obstructions, layouts or directional signs may also cause pedestrian accidents; any of these factors may shift the liability of the accident and its repercussions. If you or a loved one has been involved in a pedestrian accident, you may be in need of legal help to determine who is at fault and how you can receive a fair and accurate settlement.

When individuals try to settle with insurance companies or third parties directly, it is less likely that they will be able to attain the full compensation and justice they deserve. It is recommended that vehicle accident victims contact a caring and experienced legal team to negotiate their settlement with the full strength of the law. Car accident lawyers can also provide auto accident legal advice and file a lawsuit against the parties at fault, if necessary.
