Pedestrian Accident

Pedestrian accidents can be serious and life threatening since pedestrians are no match for a moving vehicle and are very vulnerable to injury. Moving cars and motor vehicles not paying attention to the possible presence of pedestrians, as well as bicycles and motorcycles, can cause injury.

Our law firm is dedicated to helping people and families involved in Virginia Pedestrian Accidents who have been severely injured, or killed. Drivers are required to yield to the right of way to pedestrians who are properly and legally crossing. When a pedestrian is involved in an accident he, or she, is immediately and suddenly faced with numerous questions and concerns.

Children are more particularly vulnerable to pedestrian accidents because they are less likely to be vigilant and more likely to be outside playing, running or walking. Pedestrians are also more likely to be hit during times of less light when they are not as visible such as evening or sunset.
