A Pedestrian has Rights
Everyday, pedestrians are injured by motor vehicles. A person crossing a street or a sidewalk must rely on drivers to pay attention and follow the applicable traffic laws. These laws include maintaining a proper lookout while driving. A driver who fails to pay attention puts a pedestrian at risk. As with any personal injury case, there are many variables involved. These variables include whether or not the pedestrian was in a crosswalk or obeying a traffic signal. To sort through these variables, an injured pedestrian should seek the help of experienced trial counsel. An experienced attorney can apply the principles of comparative negligence to a fact scenario to determine if a viable claim exists.
