Perhaps the most vulnerable individuals on our streets and roadways are pedestrians. Pedestrians have no vehicle to help them avoid a reckless driver and have no safety equipment to protect them as they cross streets and intersections. When a pedestrian is struck, there is no vehicle or apparatus to help absorb the energy from the impact such as a car, motorcycle or even bicycle. This means the pedestrian’s body will absorb more energy causing more severe injuries or even death. At Snellings Law PC, we have represented numerous pedestrians struck by vehicles in roadways, cross-walks, intersections and sidewalks. If you or a loved one has been injured due to someone else’s negligence, please give us a call to set-up your free consultation.
Being struck by a vehicle is a terrifying experience regardless of the severity of your injuries. One minute you are walking through a cross-walk and the next you are on your back wondering what just happened. Many drivers simply do not pay attention to pedestrians and focus only on other vehicles on the roadway. Drivers also have bad habits of not paying attention to stop lines, cross-walks and oncoming pedestrians as they approach intersections. If you have been struck by a vehicle, our attorneys can guide you through the injury claim process as well as help you find healthcare providers that are willing to treat you for the injuries you have suffered. As with any personal injury case, timing is extremely important. Please do not hesitate to call us today at 214-387-0387.
