Motorcycle, car and truck drivers are normally required to yield the road to pedestrians. Unfortunately, some drivers fail to comply with this duty and cause serious injuries or death to pedestrians.
If you have been injured in a pedestrian accident, our experienced attorneys can help you pursue the compensation you deserve. We serve clients throughout Bucks County, Philadelphia County, Delaware County, Montgomery County, Northampton County, Lehigh County, Chester County and Northeast Philadelphia.
Protecting Your Right To Safety On The Roads
When it comes to traffic laws, pedestrians on the road or in a crosswalk in Pennsylvania usually have the right of way. If you have been injured in a pedestrian accident, whether you were in a crosswalk at a green light or jaywalking in the middle of the street, you may have a legitimate claim against the driver who hit you if that person had a reasonable opportunity to see you and avoid striking you.
Many pedestrian accidents involve children who are hit by cars. Motorists are required to be on the alert for children, especially in residential neighborhoods and near schools. Closely related are bicycle accidents, in which vulnerable bicyclists carelessly are struck by motor vehicles.
Examining All Of Your Compensation Options
Our lawyers help pedestrians and bicyclists who have been struck by cars obtain the compensation they deserve for their injuries. If you have suffered brain and neck injuries, lumbar injuries, spinal cord injuries, fractures or any other severe injuries while in a crosswalk accident or other pedestrian accident, we will discuss all of your options with you.
If you were injured in a hit-and-run accident, you may be covered by your own insurance policy's uninsured and underinsured motorist provisions. Contact us in Bensalem to discuss your specific situation and how we can help you: 215-809-3882. We offer a free consultation.
