A Pedestrian has Rights

May 2020

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.


At Herrick & Hart, we have been assisting the injured for over 65 years.  We offer a free consultation for personal injury cases.  We have helped many pedestrians obtain just compensation.
