Understanding Pedestrian Laws

It is important to note that a pedestrian does not always have the right of way. Many of the questions in a pedestrian accident claim will involve right of way. Another element in a pedestrian accident can be contributory negligence. Contributory negligence means that you have contributed to your own injury. For example, if you stumble out of a bar drunk and get hit by a car, you may be the negligent party. Other complexities can arise out of hit-and-run accidents. What happens when the person who hits you cannot be identified?

These are all instances where you may hesitate to seek legal help — when you are not sure if you had the right of way, when you may have contributed to the accident and when the driver of the car does not stay at the accident scene. In all of these examples, it is wise to seek a legal opinion. Only a skilled lawyer can make the correct determination regarding the viability of your potential claim.

Fatal Pedestrian Accidents

If you have lost a family member in a fatal accident, we extend our sincere condolences. We know that no amount of money can replace your loss. Monetary compensation can help your family adjust to new financial circumstances. Additionally, significant punitive damages may be awarded to ensure the negligent party is penalized for his or her negligence.
