Montgomery County Pedestrian Accidents Lawyer
Walking is a great way to get around; it’s healthy, cost-effective, and good for the environment. But it comes with hazards, particularly in some of the more bustling areas across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Car and truck drivers bear the responsibility of watching for pedestrians in crosswalks, roads, parking lots, and other locations. When a careless driver fails to meet this obligation, injury or even death can occur as a result. If you or someone you know has been injured in a pedestrian accident, it’s essential to have an experienced Montgomery County personal injury lawyer on your side.

Helping Pennsylvania Pedestrian Accident Victims Recover Compensation for Their Injuries
The human body is no match for a several-ton vehicle, and by their very nature, pedestrian accidents often lead to life-changing injuries. When you’re walking near a road, you don’t have much to protect yourself if you’re caught in an accident, which is why pedestrians tend to suffer painful and debilitating injuries that often require extensive medical treatment. Victims of pedestrian accidents can suffer broken bones, spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, and even wrongful death. In some cases, the victim will face a long road that involves hospitalization, surgery, physical therapy, and rehabilitation.
Pedestrian accidents occur in a wide range of scenarios. Some of the most common are cars hitting pedestrians in crosswalks, pedestrians suffering an injury while jogging, children getting hit by cars in school zones, and vehicles backing into pedestrians in parking lots. Pedestrian accidents are often caused by negligent motorists who:
- Drive under the influence
- Violate traffic laws or ignore traffic signals
- Talk or text on the phone while driving
- Fail to use caution in residential areas
- Drive recklessly or disregard the speed limit
- Fail to yield the right of way to pedestrians
If you’ve been injured while on foot, our attorneys are dedicated to helping you pursue financial compensation for the losses you’ve suffered. We are experienced litigators with a proven track record of success winning results for residents across Pennsylvania.
Filing a Claim for Pedestrian Accident Injuries in Pennsylvania
If you’ve suffered an injury in an accident, an experienced Montgomery County pedestrian accident lawyer may be able to help you understand if you have a case against the negligent party. If so, you and your lawyer may consider filing a personal injury claim against the at-fault driver. The claim allows you to determine liability against the driver and perhaps recover damages. Pedestrians may use the theory of negligence to prove that the driver was at fault for the crash.
Negligence requires that you and your attorney establish that the driver had a duty of care, the driver breached the duty of care, and the driver’s breach caused the plaintiff’s injuries and damages.
