Everyone is a pedestrian at some point when they travel out of their homes. Whether in a parking lot, a crosswalk, or a residential neighborhood, pedestrians face numerous risks posed by the vehicles and properties around them.

In addition to complying with vehicle regulations, drivers, property owners, and others who interact with pedestrians often owe them a duty of care. Drivers, for example, have a legal duty to exercise reasonable care to keep people around them safe from a preventable crash.
Unfortunately, not everyone obeys the law or upholds their duty of care. Some people cause accidents due to their negligence and wrongful acts. When this happens, injured pedestrians and their families have legal grounds for pursuing a personal injury or wrongful death claim.

Examples of negligence that can give rise to a pedestrian accident lawsuit include:
In addition to negligent acts committed by drivers, the negligence of other parties may also lead to pedestrian accidents. In these cases, it becomes important to investigate what happened to determine who can be held at fault. Examples of pedestrian accidents caused by non-motorists may include:

I recently closed a case with the help of Drake and his wonderful law firm. Before I hired him I was dealing with an incompetent lawyer who wasn't fighting for the best outcome. Once I switched over to Drake and his law firm things changed for the best. His team practices great communication and answered all my questions quickly. I would highly recommend reaching out to him!

Made my horrible car accident ordeal less stressful. Got a broke ankle from the accident and they were able to come to my house to start everything. They have helped me since day one and I wouldn’t know what I would have done if they didn’t reach out and have all the information I needed. Would like to thank them for their hard work and great service.
