What to Do After a Pedestrian Accident | Negligence
While pedestrians do not always have the right of way when crossing the road, they do have rights that drivers are required to respect. A driver’s failure to obey the rules of the road or use ordinary care in watching out for pedestrians can lead to devastating and life-changing personal injuries.
While pedestrians are especially vulnerable and should look out for traffic under any circumstances, a pedestrian who is lawfully crossing the street (in a crosswalk), walking along the shoulder of a road with no sidewalk, or using a sidewalk to cross the end of a driveway or parking lot exit has a right to be there.
When a pedestrian is hit by a car, bus or a truck under such circumstances, we will diligently pursue compensation for any personal injury suffered by our client.
