Considering the Legal Options Following a Pedestrian Accident

When a person is injured in a pedestrian accident due to the negligence of another party, they often aim to pursue legal action to hold the negligent party responsible. This legal pursuit can be done by filing a personal injury claim, where the injured party must prove that the other party was negligent. Collecting evidence to substantiate the claim is the most effective way to prove negligence.

In proving negligence, an experienced pedestrian accident attorney is crucial because of their experience in collecting evidence. In instances of pedestrian accidents, there are numerous channels to contact for gathering corroborating evidence, such as collecting police reports or arranging witness statements. A lawyer can also guide you through the legal process following your accident. Below are some of the initial steps in the legal process that link to additional information to get you started.

Causes of Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrian accidents may happen for several reasons, such as inclement weather, limited visibility, or poor road conditions, but many can be attributed to a motorist’s negligence. When a driver is not paying attention or violates the rules of the road, he or she may not see a pedestrian and cause an accident. If an accident is caused by another party’s negligence, you can compensation. Here are some examples of negligent driving behavior:

1

Texting while driving

2

Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol

3

Eating, smoking or navigating directions while driving

4

Traveling with excessive speed

5

Disciplining children while driving

6

Practicing fatigued or drowsy driving

7

Failing to check blind spots

8

Failing to comply with traffic signs, lights, and other rules of the road

As mentioned above, the collection of evidence is extremely important in proving another party’s negligence caused your injuries. Some important steps of this evidence collection happen immediately following your accident. If you are physically able to, follow our post accident checklist, which includes critical evidence collection steps such as taking pictures of the accident scene and gathering contact information of accident witnesses.
