Lynchburg Pedestrian Accident Attorneys
Have You Been Hit By a Motorist?
Pedestrians on or near the road are susceptible to becoming involved in
accidents with motor vehicles. Because there is no measure of protection
between themselves and automobiles weighing thousands of pounds, these
accidents commonly result in very serious injury or even death. Even the
smallest mistake by a motor vehicle operator, such as failing to come
to a complete stop at a red light or stop sign, can end up with a jogger
or walker getting hit.
Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents
If you have been injured by a distracted, negligent, or
reckless driver while you were walking, jogging, or going about your daily routine, you
may be facing a variety of challenges, including costly medical and rehabilitation
expenses, lost wages at work, pain and suffering, and more. Fortunately,
there are legal options available and you may be able to take action against
the responsible party.
