There are numerous factors we consider in your pedestrian accident case
Pedestrians and cyclists have equal rights to public space and roadways, protected by numerous laws. However, many drivers fail to observe the rules of the road that give the right-of-way to pedestrians at crosswalks, stop signs and stoplights. When they fail to follow these rules, they run the risk of causing severe injuries to pedestrians lawfully crossing the street.
Negligent drivers and insurance companies almost always try to pin at least a portion of the blame on the injured pedestrian, which adds unnecessary stresses to you after your injury. Our Columbia personal injury attorneys work to prove the liability of the driver by analyzing the details of the accident. We consider factors such as:
- Whether you were in a crosswalk at the time of your accident
- Whether there was a “walk” symbol when you crossed the street
- Whether there was appropriate signage in the area to control traffic
- Whether the driver was under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Whether the driver was speeding or driving recklessly at the time of the accident
When possible, we seek evidence from people who witnessed the accident to help strengthen your case against the negligent driver. Every step we take goes toward illustrating fault on the part of the driver, which is imperative in obtaining a successful verdict in your case.
Pedestrian accidents can be extremely serious. Victims could experience broken bones, back or spinal injuries, brain damage, internal organ damage and more. Let us aggressively advocate for you in the courtroom to secure the financial aid that you need to pay your medical and rehabilitation costs, and compensate you for all the pain and suffering that you have had to endure since your accident.
