Pedestrians are protected by legislation that requires that drivers must yield to the right of way of pedestrians. When a driver fails to yield to their right of way, tragic injuries can result. Pedestrian accidents are not limited to crosswalks. Often accidents occur on the side of a road or highway, or in the middle of a road or highway.
Contacting a pedestrian accident lawyer immediately after an accident is essential so that all available evidence is secured and your rights are protected.
