Even with precautions like crosswalks and pedestrian crossing signs, pedestrian accidents are an unfortunate reality. Because the victims of these accidents do not have protection that a vehicle affords to drivers, the impacts can cause catastrophic and even life-threatening injuries. When these accidents occur due to driver negligence or recklessness, the injured pedestrian deserves justice.
At Klein DeNatale Goldner, our experienced legal team has helped thousands of injury victims and recovered millions of dollars on their behalf. We know what it takes to establish the wrongdoing that harmed our clients and do not rest until every avenue towards compensation is explored to its fullest extent.
Pedestrian Accidents & Motorist Negligence
For a pedestrian accident to be grounds for an injury lawsuit, driver negligence must be a contributing factor. Frequently, this is the case in areas in which both vehicle traffic and foot traffic co-exist and motorists are obligated to exercise heightened vigilance to avoid pedestrians.
Pedestrian accidents frequently happen:
- At gas stations
- At crosswalks and intersections
- Up on sidewalks and road shoulders
- At bus stops or transit system platforms
- In parking lots and garage structures
If you were hurt in any of these areas where you believe a motorist acted negligently, then we encourage you to consult with our pedestrian accident attorneys. Our team is ready to review your accident, determine if negligence was a factor, and begin work on an injury claim that truly speaks to your post-accident needs.
