Lexington Pedestrian Accident Attorney

The state of Kentucky has created many pedestrian-friendly roadways and neighborhoods in an effort to encourage more outdoor activities and an overall healthier population. However, our geography here in Kentucky will always lead to most of us being dependent on our cars, and as a result, pedestrians are forced to share the roadways with drivers who are often in a hurry, distracted, or under the influence. If you or a family member have been injured while walking, as a result of a negligent driver, you need to seek medical attention immediately and contact an experienced Lexington pedestrian accident attorney.
 
Pedestrian Accident—Attorney in Lexington, KY
 
Pedestrian accidents are those that occur between a moving vehicle and an individual. Some of the most horrendous accidents occur when a pedestrian is struck by a vehicle during normal daily activities, such as:
 
Crossing the street
Jogging, rollerblading, pushing a stroller
Helping a child or elder get to their destination on foot
 
Sitting on a bus bench or sidewalk café
Simply standing alone or in a small group
 
These pedestrian accidents are generally avoidable and often caused by driver inattention, drunk driving, texting or speeding. The Johnson Attorneys Group has an outstanding record of helping personal injury victims. In recent years they have recovered more than $50 million for accident victims and their families.

Pedestrian fatalities are often caused by driver inattention and distraction, meaning they are largely avoidable. If you were injured in a pedestrian accident, it is advisable to safeguard your legal rights to compensation by obtaining the counsel of an experienced pedestrian accident attorney.
PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENTS IN LEXINGTON
In Lexington, hundreds of people are injured or killed in pedestrian accidents every year. Pedestrian accidents in Lexington occur frequently due to pedestrian use of crosswalks all around Lexington-especially in and around the campus at the University of Kentucky. Thousands of University of Kentucky students navigate across dangerous crosswalks every day in route to their classes and other activities of daily living. In terms of overall injuries and deaths due to traffic accidents, Lexington ranks high among the other cities and towns on Kentucky.

Pedestrians are injured on a daily basis throughout the Central and Eastern Kentucky area. Unfortunatley, many drivers continue to be unaware that they share the roadways with pedestrians and pedalcyclists. This is why the attorneys and staff at James Clayton Hall, PLC work hard to hold these individuals accountable for their negligence.
YOUR RIGHTS AS A PEDESTRIAN
As a victim of a pedestrian accident, you have the right to bring legal action against the driver of the vehicle that caused your injuries to obtain compensation for your losses as well as to ensure other drivers become more careful on the roadways. The compensation you may receive will cover a variety of losses including medical expenses, lost wages, mental anguish, future wages, and pain and suffering. Your dependent family members may also be entitled to compensation if you were severely injured and are unable to provide for your family. Also, the family of a victim who is killed in a pedestrian accident may file a wrongful death claim against the defendant as well as an emotional distress claim if they witnessed a horrific accident.
COMPENSATION FOR PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENTS
