Causes of Pedestrian Accidents
Pedestrian accidents can take place on a driveway, intersection, crosswalk, parking lot, or sidewalk. Wherever your accident took place, our attorney can thoroughly investigate the cause and who may be held liable for your injuries and related expenses.
Pedestrian accidents often involve the following, and more:
- Distractions such as cell phones, stereo, GPS, passengers, etc.
- Speeding in areas highly trafficked by pedestrians
- Running red lights or stop signs
- Backing out without checking the rearview mirror
Often, defendants and insurance companies attempt to put the blame on the pedestrian involved, claiming that he or she darted into the street or crossed where it was unsafe. Our founding attorney, Michael Rix, has an extensive background in defense and in insurance, meaning he understands the strategies and tactics the opposition will use. Because of this, he can fight to undermine the opponent’s case.
