King County Pedestrian Accident Lawyer
Each year, thousands of pedestrians suffer serious personal injury or are accidentally killed by motorists, cyclists, or falling debris from buildings. Those who are injured often suffer significant and sometimes long-term injuries including:
- Broken bones,
- Brain injury,
- Neck & Back injury
- Disfigurement, or
- Other permanent disability.
As King County, Washington personal injury lawyers, we represent injured clients by seeking to obtain full compensation for them from those legally responsible for causing their injuries. We do so by carefully investigating accidents to identify those responsible, interviewing witnesses, hiring accident reconstructionists and experts when needed, reviewing police accident records, and taking other measures so that we may better understand and prove liability.
Pedestrian Accidents Often Are the Result of the Negligence of Multiple Parties
In the case of a pedestrian hit by a vehicle, often parties in addition to the driver may be legally responsible for the damages and injuries caused. Those responsible may include:
- Cities and municipalities responsible for the design of roadways and traffic control devices,
- Other drivers, who may take actions that lead to the accident,
- Construction and maintenance crews, who may not provide proper signage, lane cones, or other safety measures during a construction project,
- The entities responsible for determining aspects such as safe speed and signal timing, and
- The entities responsible for ensuring proper lighting and similar safety aspects.
In some situations, the city, town, or other municipality may bear some of the fault for the accident, and thus should be held accountable. When investigating pedestrian/vehicle accidents, we sometimes find that similar accidents have occurred in the past, and that the city, town, or other municipality has failed to take remedial action to prevent future accidents.
We Work Tirelessly to Find Those Responsible for Pedestrian Accidents and to Hold Them Accountable for the Injuries They Caused.
By thoroughly investigating pedestrian accidents, we seek to hold all parties who were negligent and contributed to the cause of the accident accountable for their share of the damages.
