Pedestrian Accidents Can Happen Anywhere
No matter where you live, you are at risk of being involved in a pedestrian accident. Legally, drivers are responsible for exercising reasonable care and for following the rules of the road while operating a motor vehicle. However, cases of impaired driving, speeding and failure to stop at a red light are all common cases where drivers fail to uphold this duty of care, which can often lead to pedestrian accidents.
Pedestrian accidents can include being struck by a vehicle while walking on the street or sidewalk, crosswalk accidents and hit-and-run accidents. If you or someone you know has been injured in a car crash or any other pedestrian accident as a result of someone else’s negligence, our pedestrian accident lawyers can help you receive accident benefits.
