Common Causes of Crosswalk Accidents
Pedestrian accidents in crosswalks can happen in a number of ways, including:
- Motor vehicles driving through crosswalks when pedestrians have the right of way
- Drivers disregarding stop signs or traffic signals
- Illegal turns by cars or buses
- Bicycle riders striking pedestrians or being hit by cars while riding in a crosswalk
- Hit-and-run accidents
If you have been involved in a crosswalk accident, there are several important steps you should take right away. Make sure a police report is filed to document the circumstances and damage from the accident. You should obtain a copy of this report, as well as copies of any medical records detailing your treatment and the injuries you sustained as a result of the accident. We will use all of this information when constructing your case.
We can recommend the most highly qualified physicians who can offer hope for improvement as well as the respect of the insurers. Because of our relationships with these doctors, we are often able to help our clients' secure medical treatment before their legal claims are resolved.
