Colorado Springs Pedestrian Accident Lawyers

950 Reviews

Two cars getting into a crash is scary and dangerous, but a pedestrian accident is even more so. You could be minding your own business, perhaps walking or biking with family or friends, when out of the blue you're hit by a vehicle that is more than three times your size and that weighs roughly 4,000 pounds. The harm incurred can be astronomical.

According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, each year there are approximately 4,000 pedestrian deaths and 59,000 pedestrian injuries. Transportation for America revealed that "more than 47,000 pedestrians were killed in the U.S. between 2000 and 2009." When a pedestrian accident occurs, it is not uncommon for the victim to sustain serious injuries, including:

  • Brain/head trauma
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Disfigurement
  • Broken limbs
  • Permanent disability

After you have received the medical attention you need, is there anything else you can do? Is there any way you can pursue justice and stop feeling like a victim?

I contacted Zinda Law Group after getting nowhere on my own with a personal injury case. I am so thankful I did. They took it off my plate and handled everything from appointments, to phone calls, and emails.

Establishing Negligence

One of the most important things you can do in the aftermath of a pedestrian accident is to file an injury claim. If the driver was at fault–meaning they were proven to be the one negligent–you may be entitled to damages. However, sometimes the driver and the pedestrian could both be at fault. For instance, a driver could have crashed into you while you were illegally jaywalking.

Pedestrian claims must be justified. If there was no third-party negligence, your claim will likely be thrown out. Other pedestrian errors can include failing to use a crosswalk, darting in front of vehicles, disrupting the flow of traffic by entering a stream of traffic, or ignoring the walk signal on a crosswalk. In order to make a successful pedestrian injury claim, you must show both negligence and liability.

A driver has a duty of care to pedestrians and fellow motorists, and when they neglect this duty, they can be deemed at fault. How can you know if a driver did not exercise “reasonable care?” These are just a handful of common negligent driver actions:

  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Failing to signal
  • Disregarding weather or traffic conditions
  • Disobeyed traffic signs or laws
  • Failure to yield the right of way
  • Failure to observe posted speed limits
  • Distracted driving

You will want to make sure you report the accident to the police and get the name, address, and insurance details of the other party. It is also helpful to record any imperative information about the accident so you won’t forget it late. It is also in your best interest to hire a skilled personal injury attorney who has experience in handling the complex legal aspects of pedestrian accident cases.

Colorado Springs Pedestrian Accident Attorneys

A personal injury attorney from Zinda Law Group can help you with the intricate details of filing a claim and can answer such important questions as how much compensation you could receive and how to reach a quick settlement with an insurance company.

If you or a loved one was severely injured in a pedestrian accident, our pedestrian accident lawyers can help you fight for the damages you deserve, such as compensation for medical bills or loss of wages.

We can also help you stand up against any third party who might have been negligent and thus culpable for the injuries you sustained. Perhaps a driver was not the one to blame. Often a city can be responsible for an accident if a faulty design of a road or traffic control device contributed to an accident. At other times, a construction crew could fail to provide proper cones, signs and other safety measures. Or perhaps the area in which the accident occurred simply has bad lighting.

Pursue justice and compensation today by contacting Zinda Law Group. We can provide you with the aggressive representation you are looking for! Call 800-863-5312 for a free consultation with one of our Colorado Springs pedestrian accident lawyers.
