Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrian Accidents Lawyer

A pedestrian who is injured due to someone else’s negligence has a claim for compensation for his or her injuries and losses. A pedestrian may have a claim for compensation if he or she is in a designated crosswalk where the pedestrian has the right-of-way. However, even if you or your child is a pedestrian and is struck by a car in an area other than a crosswalk, you may still have a valid claim if the other person was at fault.

Personal Injury Claim

As with any claim for personal injuries, you should seek professional medical attention immediately. If your injuries prevent you from returning to work or school, you should obtain a doctor’s note explaining your absence. After obtaining any emergency medical treatment that you may need, it is in your best interest to contact an attorney as soon as possible. Do not give a recorded or written statement to anyone without speaking to an attorney first. A pedestrian’s claim for personal injuries often raises questions of who was actually at fault. Did the accident occur in a designated crosswalk? What were the weather and lighting conditions? Were the vehicles headlights on? How fast was the vehicle traveling? Is the injured pedestrian a child? Although all pedestrians are expected to be careful crossing the street, young children are not expected to be as careful as adults. An experienced personal injury attorney will promptly investigate your claim, photograph the accident scene, and obtain any statements from witnesses while this evidence is still readily available. Your lawyer will help you to protect your rights professionally and aggressively pursue your claim, in order for you to receive fair and just compensation for your injuries and losses. These losses may include your medical bills, any lost wages due to your injuries, emotional and physical pain and suffering, scarring, and any permanent injury you may sustain.

What Our Clients

Have Said...

Oliver and Sherrie M. – Car Accident

“We were hit head-on by someone who run a red light. I got bruised up real bad inside and I had just had shoulder surgery and it inflamed that. My wife was hurt the worst. It disfigured her right arm. We were referred to Mr. West through our son-in-law so we went up and set an appointment with him. We went in and met him for the first time and he is a very nice gentleman to say the least. He took over the case and found out who the [driver] was. It had totaled the car and I had just gotten it paid off. They didn’t even get hurt. Mr. West took the case and went way out of his way to help. The lady who hit us … they had only the cheapest insurance to get the car on the road … so he helped us get more money to help us pay the bills. We are very happy with how it turned out. Kelly and West, they’re good people. You can talk to them and they’re down home people.”
