If You Were A Pedestrian Involved In A Motor Vehicle Accident, You May Qualify for a Pedestrian Lawsuit
Mar 16, 2010
Imagine this: you’re walking along, minding your own business; maybe you’re headed to work or on a fun shopping trip. You reach a crosswalk and hit the button so that you can safely cross the street. You wait for the light to change from “don’t walk” to “walk” and then head across the crosswalk, looking both ways. Suddenly, from out of nowhere, a car comes screaming around the corner and hits you. Unfortunately, a situation like this happens far too often for comfort. Many times, pedestrians who are obeying the law are hit by a driver of a vehicle who is not paying attention. What do you do when you’re dealing with a situation like this? Should a pedestrian lawsuit be your first course of action?
