Pedestrian Accident

Most pedestrian accidents are very dangerous and frequently result in permanent injury or a tragic loss of life. Pedestrians have nothing to protect themselves in the event of an accident. Additionally, many pedestrian accidents involve two (or more) points of impact, the initial impact and the surface where the pedestrian landed after being struck, thus resulting in more serious injuries.

If you are a victim of a pedestrian accident and have health or auto insurance, your insurance should cover your medical bills for injuries received from the accident. Even if you don't have insurance, the at-fault driver's insurance should cover your bills. However, there are times when insurance companies may try to deny coverage. That is why, if you or a loved one should find yourself the victim of a pedestrian accident, it is advised that you contact an experienced associate and our firm immediately.

The skilled attorneys at Squires Law Office, P.C. have decades of experience working with victims of pedestrian accidents and other personal injury accidents. As a result, we will be able to properly evaluate your situation, advise you of your rights and help ensure you get the compensation you deserve.

Main Causes of Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrian accidents can occur under many circumstances, however some of the main causes of pedestrian accidents include:

  • Driver not paying attention when making a right turn, especially at a red light
  • Driver not giving right of way to pedestrians in a crosswalk
  • Driver being distracting
  • Driver texting or talking on a cell phone
  • Driver under the influence
  • Driver running a red light or not stopping at a stop sign
  • Driver exceeding the legal speed limit
  • Driver pulling out of a driveway without looking for pedestrians
  • Driver pulling out of a parking spot without looking for pedestrians

Regardless of the cause of your pedestrian accident, you do have rights and you need to understand those rights and learn what options are available to you. You don't need to go through this alone.
