What Our Lawyers Can Do After Your Pedestrian Accident

  • It Starts with a Free Consultation

    We offer free consultations to all pedestrian accident victims. During your consultation, we’ll listen to your story and ask questions about your accident. From there, we’ll form a plan to obtain your medical care and begin building a case against the other party.

  • You Pay Nothing Upfront

    When you hire Anderson Injury Lawyers, you pay nothing upfront. We work on a contingency basis, so you owe us nothing until we’ve won you full and fair compensation for your accident and injuries.

  • We Help You Obtain Medical Care

    We work with hundreds of clients every year who need extensive medical treatment after an accident, including surgeries, scar revisions, and physical therapy. If you’ve been hit by a vehicle, you shouldn’t be left to wait for treatment while your case is pending. When you come to us, we’ll work to quickly set you up with doctors who will give you the care you need when you need it. All payment is deferred until after we’ve won your case.

  • Investigating Your Accident

    In order to win your case, we must prove that the driver who hit you was negligent. When you hire us, we’ll immediately investigate the scene of your accident to gather evidence like road signs, skid marks, and video footage from local security cameras, and then use this evidence to build a case against the at-fault driver. Fast action is important in pedestrian injury cases, which is why we make yours a priority.

  • Fighting the Insurance Company

    Insurance adjusters are notorious for denying or undervaluing pedestrian accident claims, but having a personal injury attorney on your side can level the playing field. Here at Anderson Injury Lawyers, we understand Texas law and will use our experience to negotiate full and fair compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. If the insurance company won’t negotiate, we’ll take them to trial.

  • Winning You the Compensation You Deserve

    We know how much is at stake after a pedestrian accident. Being hit by a car can leave you with life-threatening injuries and potentially lifelong disfigurements or disabilities. We fight tirelessly to win justice for each and every one of our clients, and we’ll do the same for you.

Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents

At Anderson Injury Lawyers, we have represented pedestrians who were injured because:

  • The driver was speeding - When a motorist drives faster than the posted speed limit, they are less likely to see someone crossing the street or walking on the shoulder. A speeding driver also may not be able to stop in time once they notice the individual.
  • The driver was distracted - Far too many drivers try to multitask when behind the wheel. They may be eating, drinking coffee, texting, checking email, trying to read the paper, reaching for something, or reviewing their GPS directions. This inevitably leads to pedestrian accidents.
  • The driver was overly tired - Drowsy driving is incredibly dangerous. Not only is the fatigued motorist at risk for falling asleep behind the wheel, but an overly tired driver is less likely to notice pedestrians and avoid them.
  • The driver failed to yield to the right of way - In many circumstances, pedestrians have the right to cross the street before a vehicle has the right to proceed or turn. Drivers who forget or ignore these rules put pedestrians at risk.
  • The driver failed to watch for pedestrians at a crosswalk - At Anderson Injury Lawyers, we often receive calls from pedestrians who were hit by a car while attempting to cross a crosswalk. Motorists are notorious for overlooking crosswalks and trying to turn when pedestrians have a walk signal.
  • A road or intersection lacks marked crosswalks - Another crosswalk-related issue is when an intersection does not have any marked sections for pedestrians to cross. When there is not a clear place to cross the road, or when there is not a walk signal at an intersection, pedestrians must do their best to gauge when it is safe to walk. This process is far from safe and places pedestrians at risk.
  • The driver made a left-hand turn - Vehicles turning at intersections are a big risk for pedestrians. Left turns in particular cause a lot of trouble. Vehicles turning left at an unprotected light are busy watching for oncoming vehicles and often fail to look out for pedestrians crossing the street.
  • The driver was intoxicated -Alcohol or drug-related impairment commonly leads to car-pedestrian accidents.

How We Won a $330,000 for an Injured Pedestrian

When Nicole’s father first contacted me about his daughter’s accident, I knew we’d be in for a tough fight. Nicole was a college student who was hit by a driver while attempting to cross the street. At first glance, the accident appeared to be Nicole’s fault, since she had crossed the road without a white “walk” sign.

A little digging revealed a different story. The intersection was several lanes wide with a median in the middle. When Nicole started to cross the crosswalk, she had the “walk” sign and was therefore allowed to cross. By the time she made it to the median, however, the crosswalk had changed to “do not walk.” The problem was that as Nicole stood there, stranded on the median, there was no second crosswalk button for her to push. She either had to wait for someone else to come and push the button behind her, or take her chances and walk the rest the way on her own. Keep Reading

Pedestrian Accident Liability

Under Texas’ modified comparative negligence law, you can recover compensation for your injuries even if you are partially at fault for the accident. As long as you are “50% or less at fault,” you can recover compensation. Unfortunately, insurance adjusters often try to place blame on pedestrians, even when the accident was not the victim’s fault. In this way, they manage to devalue an injury victim’s claim.

After a pedestrian accident, we encourage you to call our law firm. Our attorneys will investigate the accident, gather evidence, and analyze that evidence to prevent insurance adjusters from placing false blame. If there is evidence that detracts from your claim, we will prepare to defend against a claim of comparative negligence.
