Help With All Types Of Pedestrian Accidents
At Drake, Hileman and Davis, we have seen the disastrous results that occur when motor vehicles collide with pedestrians. Whether encountering runners, walkers, commuters or shoppers, drivers of automobiles and trucks frequently fail to pay attention to pedestrian travel, as they focus their attention solely on other vehicles. This is especially true when vehicles are driven in parking lots, backing up or making turns onto one-way streets.
The law requires that when traffic-control signals are not in place or operation, the driver of a vehicle shall yield the right-of-way to a pedestrian crossing the roadway within any marked crosswalk or within any unmarked crosswalk at an intersection.
As such, our courts have found that pedestrians, when crossing at an intersection, have the right to expect that automobile drivers will not run them down.
Answering Your Questions And Concerns
If the operator of a motor vehicle has injured you or a loved one as a pedestrian, you may have questions that need to be answered. In particular, you may be wondering who will pay your medical bills? Why should your auto insurance carrier be notified? Does the limited tort threshold apply to your claim? Can you get wage loss coverage under your own policy of insurance?
At our firm, our lawyers have successfully secured compensation for our injured clients. We will work to get you lost wages and medical expenses, as well as damages for pain and suffering. If you have lost a loved one in a fatal accident, we understand that no amount of money can make up for your loss. However, we will fight to hold the responsible parties accountable in a wrongful death suit.
