All drivers have a legal obligation to watch for pedestrians and yield them the right of way. When they don’t, the results can be devastating, pitting an unprotected human body against a speeding two-ton metal object. Most pedestrian accident cases are caused by inattention, impatience or law-breaking by drivers. But when it comes time to pay a settlement, some insurance companies will find any excuse to get out of paying what they owe. If this has happened to you, don’t wait to talk to an experienced pedestrian accident attorney about your rights.
