Proving Negligence in a Pedestrian Accident

Several factors can influence the outcome of your pedestrian accident claim:

  • Were you in a crosswalk?
  • Were you walking along the side of the road?
  • What color was the traffic light for the driver?
  • How fast was the vehicle was traveling?
  • Were there visibility issues, such as sun glare, rain, or fog?
  • What time of day was it — daytime, dusk, or night?

Our skilled attorneys will assess the circumstances of your pedestrian accident and work to show the extent of the driver’s liability. Our legal team will:

  • Investigate and photograph the accident site
  • Obtain and review the police report
  • Identify and interview witnesses, including the at-fault driver
  • Obtain traffic surveillance footage 
  • Handle all communications with the insurance company and opposing counsel

How Much is a Pedestrian Accident Claim Worth?

The compensation you receive in your injury claim depends on factors such as the extent of your injuries and whether you contributed to the accident. With the help of our skilled pedestrian accident attorneys, you can recover compensation such as:

  • Economic damages compensate you for medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, lost wages, and loss of earning capacity.
  • Non-economic damages cover intangible losses like pain and suffering, permanent disability, and loss of enjoyment of life. 
  • Punitive damages may also be available if the driver’s conduct was egregious or illegal (e.g., reckless driving, DUI). 

If you have lost a loved one in a pedestrian accident, we can help you obtain justice and compensation through a wrongful death lawsuit. No amount of money can replace a life, but you deserve compensation for your loss of companionship and support. 

Regardless of your circumstances, our legal team will offer informed guidance and support and work tirelessly to protect your rights and well-being.
