Tampa Pedestrian Accident Lawyer
Were You Injured Crossing the Street?
Pedestrians are often at the greatest risk of injury in the event of a
traffic accident. Although a pedestrian does not typically share the road
with motorists, there are many instances where pedestrians and motorists
will have to interact and yield the right of way. Crossing a street, walking
through a parking lot, and even walking down a sidewalk are all places
where a pedestrian may be at risk of being injured in an
auto accident of some kind.

Common Ways Pedestrians Are Injured
Some common causes of pedestrian accidents include:
If a motorist does not check his blind spots before reversing from a parking
space, does not check to see if a pedestrian is crossing the street before
making a turn or loses control and veers into a sidewalk, a serious pedestrian
accident may occur.
Do you need an injury attorney?
The last thing an injured pedestrian should have to worry about is how
he or she will pay medical bills and living expenses while injured, especially
if the accident was caused by a
hit and run driver. It may be difficult to know whether you have the right to take legal
action, and whether this is actually the best option. By placing your
case in the hands of a competent and compassionate attorney, you can focus
on recovering physically and mentally.
While your case is guided expertly through the legal process, you can feel
confident that you have the opportunity to bring the responsible person
to justice and recover the money you need at the same time.
