Pedestrians are Continually at Risk on Ohio Roads

Common causes of pedestrian-vehicle accidents include:

  • Poorly marked or timed crosswalks
  • Failure of vehicles to yield or check blind spots
  • Lack of sidewalks or safe walking areas
  • Impaired, distracted, or fatigued drivers
  • Drivers disregarding current weather conditions

When a vehicle strikes a pedestrian, the latter is often blamed for the accident. Pointing a finger at the pedestrian is an insurance company trick that alleges pedestrians should always be paying attention to traffic and should be able to nimbly get out of the way of an approaching vehicle. In the law, the opposite is true: Drivers need to pay close attention to pedestrians and do whatever they can to avoid hitting them.

Seeking Justice While Prioritizing Your Recovery

An accident with a motor vehicle can cause injuries, including broken bones, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injury (TBI), internal bleeding, and more. While you prioritize your recovery efforts, we will pursue your rights.

We will assist with filing an insurance claim, investigating the cause of the accident, and seeking the maximum amount of damages possible. We will hold all negligent or reckless parties responsible, including the driver or even third parties, such as city or state governments, when applicable.

We know how insurers approach these cases and the tactics they employ to pay you less than you are due. We will gather medical records, police reports, witness accounts, and any other documents or reports possible to assert your rights to the full amount of compensation possible.
