Pedestrian Accident Attorney in Jacksonville
FREE CONSULTATION – NO OBLIGATION
When you choose to walk, you don’t expect to be hit by a car or truck. However, accidents involving walkers, joggers and runners happen every day. Unfortunately, a collision between a vehicle and a pedestrian can have serious consequences. Since a pedestrian has no real protection against the force of a moving vehicle, the impact of any crash can result in life-altering damages such as a traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, disfigurement or paralysis. If you have been struck by a moving vehicle, it is particularly important to seek the advice of legal counsel. An experienced auto pedestrian attorney can document your claim and communicate with the driver’s insurance company for a fair settlement, or prepare your lawsuit for trial in case the negotiations fail.
No matter how vigilant a pedestrian may be, they can still suffer extensive and life-threatening injuries at the hands of a careless or reckless motorist. Collisions can occur when motorists are not paying attention to pedestrians crossing the street or are speeding in high-pedestrian traffic areas such as schools, public places or popular night-spots. Due to decreased visibility, many accidents afoot happen at night and about half of all pedestrian accidents occur over the weekend when walkers, joggers and runners are sharing the streets. In keeping with other types of car crashes, alcohol can also be a contributing factor for either party as many pedestrians who are killed were legally drunk at the time.
