Pedestrian Accident Lawsuits
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), over 5,000 pedestrians were killed in traffic collisions in 2007. Pedestrians face real risks, especially in heavily trafficked areas, as even a minor collision at slow speeds can prove devastating to a pedestrian. An individual can easily suffer broken bones, abrasions, open wounds, and even catastrophic injuries, including traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and death, in a vehicle collision.
If you or someone you love has been injured in a pedestrian accident in the greater Des Moines area or anywhere else in Iowa, an attorney from our firm has the experience, dedication, and legal knowledge you are seeking. We can review your case and determine liability. Though the driver of the vehicle is typically considered liable in pedestrian accidents, if it can be shown that you were crossing the street illegally or you were in any other way violating the rules of the road, it can jeopardize your claim eligibility.
You can depend on a Des Moines pedestrian accident lawyer from LaMarca Law Group, P.C. to thoroughly investigate and review your case and advise you of your options.
