Pedestrian Accident  

Greensboro Pedestrian Accident Lawyer


Personal Injury Attorney Handling Pedestrian Injuries

If you are faced with an injury caused by being struck by a vehicle while negotiating a crosswalk or other walkway, you may be entitled to compensation for the damages you suffer. Oftentimes pedestrians are struck due to the negligence of the driver of the vehicle. Common causes of pedestrian accidents include:

As this type of accident often leads to catastrophic injuries due to the weight and speed of a car, it is vital you have a personal injury attorney with the experience and skill needed to properly bring your case to an insurance company. Also, these cases are usually hotly contested by insurance companies who will try and blame the pedestrian for what happened.

Some of the areas of law that may need to be addressed include:

  • Contributory negligence
  • Darting child defense
  • Sudden emergency
  • Last clear chance

The most important is last clear chance. In many pedestrian cases, the person injured may have been a fault to some small degree. He just didn't see the car coming or get out of the way. However, if the car had the "last clear chance" to brake, swerve just a little and avoid the wreck then that is what they must do. Just because a pedestrian may be not paying attention, this doesn't excuse a driver's negligence. We all know who is going to lose the battle between a pedestrian and a car. We all know that people sometimes aren't paying attention as they walk. So, the law requires all drivers to simply follow the rules of the road and watch out for pedestrians.

Dealing with the Insurance Company

Be careful of anything that you say to the insurance companies on these type of cases, as they will try and use this against you. I hear them claim all of the time that they are going to pay your bills and your lost wages, but instead they start building a case against you.
