Pedestrian Injury

Pedestrian Accidents Call for a Strong Attorney

Whether you are walking on a sidewalk, in a crosswalk, or in a parking lot, you have little control over the actions of drivers. A distracted driver may be looking at a cell phone or changing stations on the radio and never seeing a pedestrian until it’s too late.

With so much at stake, you need an aggressive attorney on your side. At Zbinden & Curtis, we fight relentlessly for maximum compensation for our clients. Contact us today for a free consultation.

How to Reduce the Risk of Pedestrian Accidents

In some cases, a pedestrian injury results in death, leading to a potential wrongful death lawsuit.

To reduce the risk of injuries, pedestrians should keep in mind the following:

  • Use clearly marked cross-walks
  • Don’t interrupt the flow of traffic by darting out into the road
  • Wait for a “walk” signal to cross the street

Drivers can do their part to help prevent pedestrian accidents by doing the following:

  • Use turn signals
  • Obey speed limits
  • Yield to pedestrians in cross-walks
  • Pay attention to road conditions
