Pedestrians Have A Right To Compensation After An Accident
Drivers and pedestrians both have a responsibility to keep the roads safe. Pedestrians must cross the street only on a walk signal, avoid interrupting traffic and use crosswalks. Drivers must yield to pedestrians in crosswalks, use turn signals, obey speed limits and pay proper attention to the road. Unfortunately, distracted or intoxicated drivers often fail their duty to pedestrians, causing serious accidents.
If a negligent driver caused an accident and injured you, you deserve to hold them accountable and obtain just financial compensation for your injuries. At The Law Office of Abrar & Vergara in El Paso, our attorneys assist clients throughout Texas throughout the personal injury claims process. We know that no two cases are alike, and we strive to provide personalized attention and a tailored approach to every client we see.
We Will Help You Every Step Of The Way
Whether you are hit by a car on a crosswalk or a vehicle veers off the road onto the sidewalk, pedestrian accidents can lead to serious injuries and fatalities. Many of these injuries may lead to lifelong disabilities that can significantly impact your quality of life.
Common injuries after a pedestrian accident include:
You only have two years to file a personal injury claim in Texas. While two years may seem like a long time, the sooner you get started on your case, the better your chance of success. Evidence degrades over time, and it can be more challenging to obtain supporting evidence long after your accident. We will help you gather police reports, photos, surveillance videos and medical records to help prove your claim.
