Pedestrians Have The Right Of Way
In many injury situations, pedestrians are hit when they are walking exactly where they should be. They are hit while in a crosswalk by a driver who takes a right turn without looking for people walking. They are hit while walking on the sidewalk in front of a parking lot entrance by cars that are hurriedly coming or going without watching for pedestrians. In these cases, negligence is clear. We work hard to hold drivers accountable in crosswalk injury and other pedestrian or jogger injury cases.
Sometimes though, negligence is not very clear. Sometimes, the pedestrian may have been walking in the street or in the crosswalk against the light. Even if the victim was doing something they should not have been, drivers still have a responsibility to look out. Drivers could still be held partially responsible for the accident, meaning the victim could get compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages and other costs. These are challenging cases, but our head lawyer has the experience to handle them.
