Front Royal Pedestrian Accident Lawyer

Injured pedestrians need a vigorous, results-oriented attorney to help them seek a settlement after an accident. Obtaining financial compensation for your injuries is difficult. Many motorists will do or say anything to avoid liability, possibly even blaming you for the collision. At Correll Law Firm, our Front Royal pedestrian accident lawyer can find useful evidence, analyze your injuries, and negotiate for a fair settlement. To find out more, contact us today to schedule your free consultation. 

Why Pedestrian Accidents Happen

Most of our clients are hurt because a negligent driver crashed into them. Some of the most common reasons are:

  • Cell phone distraction
  • Poor visibility or weather
  • Driver fatigue
  • Drunkenness or drug use
  • Speeding
  • Failure to yield
  • Illegal turns
  • Right-on-red without stopping first

Pedestrians should always cross inside a crosswalk, if one is available, and should use the sidewalk instead of walking in the road. Nonetheless, too many pedestrians get clipped despite being careful.

Pedestrian Accidents Are Serious

Each year, hundreds of people are killed or seriously injured following a pedestrian wreck. Some of the most significant injuries include:  

  • Leg or pelvic fractures
  • Neck injuries
  • Nerve damage
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Road rash
  • Back injuries
  • Chest injuries
  • Heart contusion
  • Spinal column injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Crush injuries

Identifying Liability for a Front Royal Pedestrian Accident

The central legal question in a pedestrian accident case is “Who is at fault?” This is the legal concept of responsibility. In most cases, a dangerous or careless driver is to blame for the crash for the reasons mentioned above. However, we need evidence to establish fault:

  • Your testimony of what you remember;
  • Other witness testimony of what they saw;
  • The driver’s own statements;
  • Any video that captured the collision;
  • Medical records, which can show how you were hit;
  • Photographs of the car involved to show where it struck you.

Another key consideration is contributory negligence. In Virginia, any contributory negligence on your part can result in no compensation. Virginia is one of the few places in the U.S. to still follow this rule. If you are even 1% to blame, you will receive nothing for even serious, disabling injuries.

Many drivers allege a pedestrian was jaywalking or even darted directly in front of their vehicle. You need to push back on these allegations. Let us canvas the factual record and marshal the facts in your favor. Negligent drivers should be held responsible.

Fair Settlements for Injured Pedestrians

The days and weeks following an accident might feel hopeless. Many victims spend days in the hospitals with painful injuries, or else they are holed up at home and unable to leave. Bodily pain completely upends someone’s life. Many of our clients cannot work due to their limitations, which means they are plunged into immediate financial distress. You need money to pay your bills, including all this medical care. You also deserve financial compensation for your pain and bodily suffering.

Our Front Royal pedestrian accident lawyer can seek damages for: 

  • Hospital bills
  • Diagnostic tests, including x-rays or other imaging tests
  • Medication
  • Surgery
  • Hospital overnights
  • Wheelchairs or other devices
  • Lost wages and income
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish

If a loved one died in an accident, our Front Royal wrongful death attorney can step in and pursue a settlement under the wrongful death law. We can analyze the facts as known. A wrongful death case is very complex, because your loved one is no longer around to tell us what happened.
