Pedestrian Accidents

Injured Pedestrians Need Experienced Attorneys

Personal injury lawyers of ROBINSON & CLAPHAM apply years of experience and a dedication to clients' well-being when representing injured pedestrians and family members of pedestrians who were killed in collisions with cars, trucks or motorcycles, or swimmers killed by boats.

Pedestrian accidents happen in a variety of situations including the following:

  • In a crosswalk
  • On a street but not in a crosswalk, including jaywalking scenarios
  • On a sidewalk (car jumped the curb or was crossing from a parking lot to the street)
  • In a parking lot (including parking lots with heavy foot traffic, such as gasoline stations and convenience store parking lots)
  • In driveways (particularly hazardous for resident or neighborhood children)
  • Jogging paths crossing lanes of traffic
  • Bicycle paths crossing lanes of traffic
  • Bicycle-pedestrian collisions on or off walking/biking trails

Legally speaking it is a reasonable expectation for drivers of cars, trucks and motorcycles to watch out for pedestrians even when they are jaywalking. Bicyclists are expected to watch out for hikers and joggers. Grey areas and complications may arise, when:

  • The motorist is uninsured or underinsured
  • The motorist goes unidentified in a hit-and-run situations
  • Several insurance policies may apply

A skilled and attentive personal injury lawyer will work to ensure that all sources of compensation are fully taken into account to help an injured pedestrian cover costs and losses including:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wage replacement
  • Therapy
  • Pain and suffering
