How Can a Lawyer Help You?
A pedestrian accident attorney with experience obtaining settlements and verdicts for injured victims can review your case and let you know if you have grounds for a claim against a driver or another party. Your lawyer can help you file an insurance claim and/or personal injury lawsuit in your county in the pursuit of fair compensation from the at-fault party. An attorney will negotiate with claims adjusters so you can focus on healing from your injuries.
Who Is Liable?
The liable party for your pedestrian accident refers to the person or entity most responsible for causing the collision – the party that will have to pay for your damages by law. The party accountable for your accident may have breached a duty of care he or she owed you, such as a driver’s duty not to drive distracted. Identifying the at-fault party can help you take the first steps toward obtaining compensation.
- A driver. A driver could crash into a pedestrian or bicyclist due to many different types of negligent, careless or reckless driving. A driver might be at fault for driving drunk, driving drowsy or driving distracted, or for breaking roadway rules.
- The city government. The city where the accident happened might be liable if it reasonably should have designed a safer crosswalk or intersection, or if a defect (e.g. a broken traffic control signal or cracked sidewalk) caused the accident.
- A product manufacturer. Sometimes, defective products cause pedestrian accidents. A glitch in the software of an automated vehicle, for example, could lead to an impact between the car and someone crossing the street.
At Drake Law Firm, we can analyze your pedestrian accident to help you determine its cause and the at-fault party (defendant). Then, we can build a case against the defendant, whether it is a negligent driver or an automaker. Our lawyers can revisit the scene of your crash, collect evidence, speak to eyewitnesses and piece together a claim to damages on your behalf.

Once we determine who is at fault for your Shoals pedestrian accident, we can help you fight for a fair amount according to your specific losses. Our attorneys use comprehensive and thorough strategies to prove our clients’ damages and demonstrate them in a way that speaks to insurance companies and juries.
