Pedestrians are the most vulnerable of all road users. In the event of an auto-pedestrian accident, pedestrians are very likely to suffer serious injuries, including broken bones, head trauma, spinal cord injuries, and even death. Most pedestrian accidents are caused by:

  • Drivers’ negligence
  • Failure to yield the right of way
  • Jaywalking
  • Crossing against a traffic signal

While pedestrian accidents are unfortunately common, it can be extremely challenging to determine the at-fault party. An experienced pedestrian lawyer can help determine liability and pursue compensation on behalf of the injured pedestrian.
