Pedestrian Accidents

Posted on June 4th, 2009 No Comments

When we travel by foot, most of us are reasonably aware of the drivers on the road. However, we often fail to appreciate the full extent of the danger we are placed in by walking on a sidewalk that is, in most cases, only a few feet away from moving vehicles. One false move by a driver could send their car hurtling onto the sidewalk, potentially resulting in drastic injury or even death for nearby pedestrians.

If you or a loved one has suffered from an accident caused by a reckless or negligent automobile driver, you may be eligible for compensation. Contact the Cincinnati pedestrian accident attorneys of Stepleton Dugan, LLC today at 513-321-7733 to learn more about your legal options.

What to Do After a Pedestrian Accident

If you have been injured by a driver while on foot, the first thing you should do is contact the police. If you believe the driver may attempt to flee the scene, write down their license plate number. In many cases, medical insurance will not cover injuries caused by car accidents, which may include pedestrian accidents, so it is extremely important to discover the identity of the driver.

In addition, it is relatively easy for a court or insurance company to analyze the damage to a car after an accident in order to determine who was at fault. However, it is not as simple to “analyze” the injuries on a human body, and police testimony can often be the key factor in winning your case. As you navigate the legal issues surrounding your injury, you will want to have an experienced Cincinnati pedestrian accident lawyer on your side.
