Pedestrians have rights on the roadways just as motorists do. Part of your rights as a pedestrian is to obtain compensation for injuries sustained a a motor vehicle accident. Pedestrian accidents may occur in crosswalks, intersections, roadways, driveways or parking lots. Poor weather conditions and inadequate lighting may also cause pedestrian accidents. 

Our personal injury lawyers understand how vulnerable pedestrians are when involved in a collision with a motor vehicle. Unfortunately, a high percentage of pedestrian accidents result in long term injuries, serious orthopaedic injuries, catastrophic injuries and even death. Catastrophic injuries may include internal injuries, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries or multiple fractures.
