Huntsville Pedestrian Accident Lawyer

As an Injured Pedestrian, You Have Rights

Sidewalks, crosswalks, and control signals (walk/don’t walk devices) are in place to protect pedestrians. Pedestrians walking on sidewalks, crosswalks, and in parking lots have the right to assume that motorists will obey traffic signals and laws. Motorists should not only obey traffic laws, they should look for pedestrians before making right turns through crosswalks, before backing out of parking spaces, and before driving anywhere that a pedestrian may be. This does not always occur, however, and distracted, drunk, or careless drivers can cause serious harm to unsuspecting pedestrians.

What Causes Pedestrian Accidents?

While every case is different, and a single accident could have more than one cause, the following are factors that commonly contribute to pedestrian accidents:

  • Distracted driving (texting while driving, using a handheld phone, etc.)
  • Drunk driving or driving under the influence of drugs
  • Speeding or driving too fast for road/weather/visibility conditions
  • Failing to check a crosswalk before making a left or right turn
  • Stop sign and traffic light violations
  • Defective auto parts (such as faulty brakes or tire blowouts)
  • Speeding in parking lots
  • Failing to look for pedestrians when backing out of a parking space or driveway

One of the key parts of handling a case for an injured pedestrian is determining how the incident occurred. We carefully investigate these cases to determine cause, and we can then identify who should be held responsible. Through the investigation and every step of your claim, you can count on your Huntsville personal injury attorney at Hill & Jordan to be accessible and ready to help.
