Injured at a Crosswalk? Our Bellevue Attorney Can Help
Many times, pedestrians are injured in crosswalk accidents. While in the crosswalk and while the walk signal is lit, pedestrians have the right of way. Drivers have a duty of care to watch out for pedestrians and to be especially conscious of foot traffic near crosswalks. When drivers fail to meet this duty, pedestrians can receive serious injuries that can have both immediate and long-lasting repercussions. Some of these include:
- Broken bones
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Loss of limb
If you or a loved one is injured by a vehicle, you should contact a lawyer to understand what your options are and what compensation you may be entitled to.
Pedestrians are often hit by motor vehicles such as cars, trucks and motorcycles when drivers are guilty of:
- Not properly yielding the right of way to pedestrians in crosswalks
- Ignoring or disobeying traffic signals
- Violating other traffic laws
- Driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs
Although these are some of the most common acts of negligence that result in pedestrian accidents, we offer assistance to our clients even if the cause is not listed above.
