Pedestrian Injuries

When it comes to pedestrian accidents, even a small traffic violation can cause major injuries to pedestrians. Our law firm handles pedestrian accidents caused by negligent drivers, speeding drivers, drivers distracted by cell phones, drunk drivers and reckless drivers, among others.

Driver inattentiveness is the primary cause of most pedestrian accidents. A high percentage of pedestrian accidents happen at dusk and nighttime, when visibility is reduced. Pedestrians are at risk for serious bodily injury in all accidents. A vehicle traveling at only a few miles an hour can seriously injury a pedestrian or cause permanent disability or death.

  • Negligent drivers
  • Speeding drivers
  • Drivers distracted by cell phones
  • Drunk drivers
  • Reckless drivers

  • Yield right of way
  • Stop at a cross walk
  • Come to a complete stop at a stop sign

  • Provide enough room for bicyclists on a street or road
  • Travel too fast down neighborhood streets

Non-Vehicular Pedestrian Accidents and Injuries

Thousands of pedestrians are injured every year in accidents not caused by automobiles. Some of these pedestrian accidents are caused by poorly maintained parking lots, sidewalks or bridges, or by poor property maintenance. Countless other injuries are caused by debris, falling objects or construction site accidents. Non-vehicular pedestrian accidents may have numerous responsible parties involved, including construction companies, property owners and even government entities. If a property owner is responsible, an injured pedestrian may have a claim under premises liability law – contact Lexlee Overton for more information.
