Personal Injury


As a pedestrian you are protected by the rules of the road as drivers must yield the right of way to pedestrians. A simple thing like crossing the street can be tragic if the rules of the road are not followed.

Pedestrians are often struck because drivers fail to see them and as a result children and senior citizens are at the greatest risk of injury.

Drivers who cause pedestrian accidents often:

  • Drive without proper care and attention
  • Fail to observe posted speed limits
  • Disregard weather or traffic conditions
  • Disobey traffic signs or signals
  • Fail to yield the right of way to pedestrians at marked crosswalks
  • Fail to come to a complete stop at a stop sign
  • Fail to stop and properly observe before turning right at an intersection
  • Drive while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
