Babbitt, you can be sure that our attorneys will fight for you every step of the way.

Hurt Unexpectedly

Whether you walk regularly around the city or not, there are times when you are out of your vehicle. One of the most common places for pedestrian accidents to happen is in parking lots when drivers don’t check their surroundings before backing their vehicles up. Another common place for pedestrian accidents is at crosswalks, places drivers often don’t see or choose to ignore lights that give pedestrians the right-of-way.

While we understand that sometimes accidents happen and they aren’t anyone’s fault, we also know that a driver’s negligence can put you and your loved ones in danger when you are out walking.

Drivers who are under the influence of alcohol or drugs have a much higher chance of striking a pedestrian. The same is true for drivers who are distracted by their phones. While they may think that it is okay to check their text messages, the consequences of taking their eyes off the road for just a few seconds can be deadly.

When a vehicle hits the human body, the resulting injuries can be devastating. There is just no way for our bodies to absorb the momentum of a vehicle that weighs thousands of pounds. When a person is struck, the secondary impact with the ground can cause just as much damage. Injuries can range from soft tissue and bone damage to severe internal and head trauma.

If you get hit by a vehicle, you may end up in the hospital for an extended amount of time. If you need rehabilitation and have to miss work, the lost income can be detrimental to the livelihood of you and your family.
