Pedestrian accidents cause a significant number of injuries each year, and can substantially affect the lives of people involved. When the injuries are particularly significant, victims may require long-term medical care and may be unable to work, potentially for the rest of their lives. As a result, it is extremely important that pedestrian accident victims ensure that they are compensated for their injuries by those responsible. People may also suffer other non-economic damages that also may be compensable in a lawsuit. The most effective way to maximize your chances of recovering for your injuries is to retain the services of a skilled personal injury attorney. The personal injury attorneys of the Law Offices of Shane Smith are dedicated to helping victims who are injured in pedestrian accidents recover for their injuries.
While pedestrian accidents can occur for a wide variety of reasons, there are certain causes that are more common than others. Some of the more common causes of car accidents include the following:
- Distracted driving
- Not stopping at stop signs or red lights
- Failure to yield
Determining the cause of a pedestrian accident is essential when it comes to establishing legal liability. An experienced attorney can help you determine whether and against whom you may have a claim.
