Severe Injuries Suffered by Pedestrians
Pedestrians do not have any sort of protection in an accident. They depend entirely on a driver’s attention and care to keep them safe when in crosswalks and parking lots or walking along sidewalks. When a collision happens, it is not unusual for the pedestrian to suffer catastrophic injuries while the driver is unharmed.
Pedestrians can suffer these injuries and more in a crash:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Head injuries
- Back injuries
- Soft tissue injuries
- Permanent disfigurements
Be sure to follow your doctor’s instructions as closely as possible. If you do not, then your injuries could worsen, which can jeopardize the legitimacy of your claim.
Causes of Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
Drivers tend to blame pedestrians the moment that there is an accident. This is not fair to the pedestrians, though, as every accident warrants an investigation to figure out who caused it. Robins Cloud LLP can investigate your accident to determine its cause. If the driver should be held liable, then we will fight tirelessly to make sure that you are given a fair amount of compensation.
Drivers can cause pedestrian accidents by:
- Not stopping at intersections
- Ignoring crosswalk indicators
- Speeding through parking lots
- Exiting driveways without looking
Do Pedestrians Have the Right-of-Way?
Oftentimes, people assume that pedestrians have the right-of-way, which would mean that vehicle traffic needs to yield to pedestrians. However, this is not always the case. Pedestrians must share the road with vehicles and yield the right-of-way when it is safe, too.
We can help prove that you had the right-of-way when the accident happened. If you did, then it would make sense that your liability should be kept low, possibly down at 0%.
Evidence to Prove Liability in a Pedestrian Accident
Determining liability in a pedestrian accident claim is a priority. We can look for evidence in several forms that show that you did nothing wrong. While we are investigating and working diligently on your case, you should focus on yourself and your recovery.
Evidence that can help prove liability in your case might include:
- Dashcam footage
- Eyewitness testimonies
- Police reports
- Traffic cam footage
With the right evidence in hand, we can bring a claim against the liable party and their auto insurance provider. We might be able to negotiate a settlement that covers all the damages owed to you. If a settlement is not possible, which can happen if the defendant refuses to cooperate, then we will be ready to take that evidence to the court in a lawsuit.
