Pedestrian accidents are known to cause catastrophic injuries. They most often involve the driver of a car or truck failing to observe a pedestrian and striking them. The causes of such accidents can include distracted drivers, such as when a driver is texting or involved in some other activity that takes their attention off of the road in front of them. Pedestrians are often injured or killed in drunk driving accidents.
If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in a pedestrian accident, a West Virginia personal injury attorney from our firm can advise you about seeking financial compensation from a negligent or reckless driver. Pedestrian accidents are sometimes caused when hazardous or unsafe conditions exist due to the failure of some entity to properly maintain lights, signs, or road conditions.
Personal injury law seeks to bring about justice in situations where serious harm has come to an individual from the neglect or reckless behavior of another. For example, if a large trucking company fails to properly maintain their vehicles, and it results in the brake system failing and causing a pedestrian accident, that company can be held accountable to those that suffered injury because of their neglect.
