PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENT ATTORNEYS & LAWYERS



According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Association, there are nearly 5,000 pedestrian fatalities in motor vehicle related accidents. Pedestrian accidents also result in about 100,000 pedestrians suffering non-fatal injuries when struck by an automobile.


Additionally, poor property maintenance, sidewalk or parking lot defects and/or construction or other debris on walkways cause thousands of non-vehicular pedestrian accidents which can result in injury claims against the owners and/or operators of these premises. 


A Pedestrian Accident Lawyer | Attorney at Kane | Varghese can help clients determine whether they have a claim based upon a careful and thorough analysis of the facts of each pedestrian accident. Depending on the circumstances of the pedestrian accident, those with potential liability may include drivers of vehicles striking pedestrians and parties responsible for maintaining premises where the pedestrian accident may have occurred.  A person involved in a pedestrian accident is well advised to seek the early intervention and involvement of a pedestrian accident injury attorney with experience helping injured pedestrians. 


The attorneys and lawyers at the Kane | Varghese law firm have represented pedestrians injured by motorists, who are required by law to exercise "reasonable care under the circumstances." Typical factors contributing to pedestrian accidents include driver negligence resulting in pedestrian accidents include inattentive or pre-occupied driver, failure to observe posted speed limits, failure to yield the right of way to pedestrians at marked cross walks, disobeying traffic signs or signals, failing to signal while turning, disregarding weather or traffic conditions, and driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.



Automobile Drivers Higher Duty of Care to Children:


Young Children are at great risk of being hit by a motor vehicle while playing in neighborhoods or school environments.  A motor vehicle driver must exercise a greater degree of care when they know or should know that small children are at present or at play in the immediate area.  Drivers must exercise special and extreme caution when driving near a school and residential districts where children are known to play.  When drivers do not exercise due and higher care when driving in these surroundings, unfortunately, pedestrian accidents involving children can occur.

Pedestrian accidents can result in injuries ranging from cuts, scrapes, burns, broken bones, head and brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and even death.
