How The Legal Process Works For Pedestrian Accidents

Houston pedestrian accident lawyerIf you were hurt as a pedestrian you can file a claim for damages against the other driver’s car insurance company if the other driver was at fault for the collision. Many times these collisions are investigated by the police who will write a crash report. If the pedestrian had the right-of-way then the driver will be found at fault or negligent for the crash. 

Your attorney will file a claim with the driver’s insurance company. He will seek compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, pain & suffering, mental anguish, physical impairment and physical disfigurement.

 

How To Determine Who Was At Fault

There are times when the pedestrian must yield the right of way to the motor vehicle. If the pedestrian fails to yield the right-of-way, then they will be found partially or sometimes wholly  responsible or negligent for the crash. The times when the pedestrian must yield the right-of-way include crossing the street outside a designated cross-walk, crossing a highway outside of the cross walk or crossing within a cross-walk without having the walk signal.
The driver may be found responsible or negligent for the crash when they fail to yield the right-of-way to the pedestrian who was crossing in a designated cross walk with the walk signal.
In serious pedestrian accidents a police investigation will be performed by the officer responding to the accident. They will create a “crash report” and give their professional opinion of what factors contributed to the accident. They can also issue tickets to drivers found responsible for the pedestrian accident.

Pedestrian Injuries Are Serious Injuries

Pedestrians have no protection against being struck by a motor vehicle so the injuries can be very serious. Broken bones, traumatic brain injury and even death can happen. The recovery time may be long and the injured person may be unable to work or care for themselves. Permanent injuries can occur requiring expensive future medical care.
