Pedestrian Accidents Involving Vehicles

Henningsen Injury Attorneys, P.C. has helped many injury victims over the years. One of the most startling cases we have come across is when pedestrians struck because someone was driving recklessly or exercised poor judgment while driving. Our bodies are powerless against the force of a vehicle—leaving us vulnerable to sustaining severe injuries. How can we seek justice for others’ reckless actions?

Who Is Liable in a Pedestrian-Vehicle Accident?

You may have several options for making a claim for compensation. You might take action against the negligent driver or drivers. Other circumstances may have contributed to the accident as well. Perhaps the driver was forced to make a hasty maneuver to avoid trouble because there was construction or some other defect in the road. Or, the traffic lights were malfunctioning or burned out, causing a hazard to all drivers.

We always advise the following immediately following an accident:

  • Call for emergency medical help, if any injuries
  • Alert the police to the incident to obtain a report
  • Get the names and identifying information of the drivers involved
  • Gather witnesses and take down their names and information
  • Notify the insurance companies that an accident has occurred
  • Consult with an Atlanta injury attorney about your legal options

Whoever played a role in causing your accident should be responsible for paying for the costs of your medical bills and other necessary expenses. If you were a pedestrian walking along the sidewalk or the crosswalk and have obeyed all of the traffic laws, and a vehicle struck him or her, there is no way around this—the driver is undoubtedly at fault.

On the other hand, the pedestrian may be able to make a claim against the county or city where the injury occurred. It may be due to the poorly maintained streets, a broken traffic light, or any other structural issue that the municipality failed to address.
