In every city, there is risk associated with just walking on a sidewalk. Unfortunately, these risks are incredible and often due to the negligence of another person. The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation makes it very clear – there are many pedestrian-related incidents occurring in our state. In 2013, for example, 151 people were killed while walking. Our team of experienced personal injury attorneys in Chester County and Delaware County, PA are available to discuss your case with you today.
Know Your Rights
Pedestrians have the right of way in nearly every situation. While a person running out randomly into traffic may be the odd case here, most people who are struck by a car, truck, or another person are in the right place. It is important to discuss your case thoroughly with our legal team. We’ll work hard to prove that you did nothing wrong and that the driver of the vehicle was at fault. This can be hard to prove, but our team has the experience necessary.
You may be owed compensation for your losses after a pedestrian accident. This might include:
- Lost time at work
- Medical bills
- Rehabilitation bills
- Chronic pain and suffering
- Loss of property and much more
What’s important to know is that as a pedestrian, you have the right to request compensation for your losses. However, you should not simply settle a claim with the other party’s liability insurance. This is a mistake unless you have a skilled pedestrian accident attorney by your side.
Don’t delay. Call our Chester County and Delaware County, PA personal injury attorneys to discuss your case. Let us help you determine if someone else should be paying for your losses. Call us for a free consultation.
