The inherent dangers in an auto accident involving a pedestrian are obvious. When a motor vehicle of any size strikes a pedestrian, there are very likely serious injuries that will result. If you have been hit in a pedestrian accident and sustained serious injuries, you may be entitled to damages beyond what you received from the insurance company.
By contacting the office Fresno Personal Injury Lawyer Carl L. Brown, you can obtain qualified legal counsel that will advise you on the proper course of action to get what is rightfully yours.
Unfortunately, there are numerous situations in which a pedestrian is at risk to be hit by a vehicle. Some of these situations include the following:
Proceeding through a crosswalk
Jogging on side of road
Walking through a parking lot
Struck while getting off of a bus or other public transport
If the driver of the vehicle was acting illegally, whether it be driving while distracted or simply not obeying traffic signals, they should be deemed at fault for the accident.
In such a case, you may be able to take legal action to obtain damages that can help offset things like medical expenses and lost time at work.
