Walking across a parking lot or crossing the street at a crosswalk should be simple and safe activities. Sadly, even when you follow traffic laws, there are some drivers who simply aren’t paying attention or looking out for your safety. In fact, most pedestrian accidents are preventable and caused by negligent behavior.
At Athens Injury Law, our attorneys are committed to holding negligent drivers responsible for their actions. The injuries suffered in a pedestrian accident can be catastrophic, and you deserve to receive compensation and see justice served.
Common Behaviors Leading To Pedestrian Accidents
Any time a motorist strikes a pedestrian with their vehicle, it is known as a pedestrian accident. There are countless situations in which this type of accident may occur. With over 50 years of combined experience, our lawyers and support staff are committed to investigating your case and determining liability. We work hard to hold reckless drivers responsible for their behavior. In addition to automobile drivers, public transit drivers may be held responsible for pedestrian accidents.
A few common causes of pedestrian accidents include:
- Drunk driving
- Distracted driving
- Texting/cell phone use
- Poor road maintenance
If a driver is distracted or has limited visibility, a pedestrian accident can happen in mere seconds. The injuries caused by pedestrian accidents can cost tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills, lost wages, disability-related expenses and more. The attorneys of Athens Injury Law want to secure the compensation you will need to defray these costs.
Our attorneys truly care about our clients. We work hard to gather the right information and prepare your case, working towards the best possible outcome. You can rely on us to support you every step of the way through the legal process.
