With the combined rising of "green" philosophies and gas prices, more and more people are cycling and walking to get to their destinations. Pedestrians have the right of way in almost every circumstance, but are at the mercy of all vehicle drivers.
When involved in a car, truck or motorcycle accident, a pedestrian will nearly always suffer a significant injury. Pedestrians are always afforded the right of way, but unfortunately they are at the mercy of drivers of all types of vehicles.
To make matters even more complex, a driver's insurance company usually tries to blame the injured victim. Adjusters can and do everything they can to collect statements to try to limit payouts. If you or a loved one has been injured as a pedestrian, it is critical to reach out to an attorney to understand your rights and protect yourself.
