You can make a claim for a pedestrian accident

Pedestrians getting hit by cars and other vehicles is a major problem in the United States that isn't going away. Dangerous drivers, like those who drink and drive or text while driving, can cause serious harm to others by taking their eyes off the road. On average, one pedestrian is killed every 113 minutes due to being hit by a car or other vehicle, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. That was in 2003, and today more injuries and fatalities could be happening.

So, what can you do to protect yourself as a pedestrian? Start by making sure you stand out. Wear light clothing at night, and during the day, make sure you're crossing the street in crosswalks. Try to travel during times when traffic is slower; if you can't, then make sure to watch traffic carefully, so you can see dangerous drivers before they approach you.

A majority of crashes with pedestrians take place outside of crosswalks. For instance, if you're in a parking lot and are struck by a driver speeding through the area, then you're not going to have a safe place to walk to get inside the store or out of the lot. Instead, drivers have the responsibility to be safe and to slow down; in these areas, drivers should be slowing down around corners and checking before backing out of parking spaces.

If you're injured, your attorney can help you get the compensation you need from the at-fault party. Our website has more information on injuries and pedestrian accidents, so you can learn more about your options.
