If you live in the Dallas area, pedestrian accidents are very common. Losses resulting from a pedestrian accident can range from wrongful death to serious personal injuries, medical expenses, lost wages, as well as physical pain and mental anguish. The only way you can be sure that your pedestrian accident claim will be properly handled is to hire an experienced Dallas pedestrian accident attorney to represent you. Not only will Robert C. Slim, Attorney at Law, know how to prepare your pedestrian accident case for maximum value, he also knows how to properly negotiate your claim to get the highest possible settlement.
The Texas Department of Transportation annual report states that almost 400 fatalities occurred in Texas involving pedestrians and bicyclists. Aside from the deaths that occur from these accidents, anyone can certainly understand and appreciate that such accidents have a tendency to cause very serious injuries compared to a typical two-car collision. For these reasons, there are very specific rules governing how pedestrians and bicycle operators are to conduct themselves on the roadways.
Pedestrian Injury Cases May be Harder to Win than you Think….
One should note that, contrary to popular belief, the motorist is very commonly exonerated and found not to be at fault in pedestrian accident cases. That is because the average juror tends to identify more with the vehicle operator rather than the pedestrian.
Therefore, your personal injury lawyer must appreciate that they are faced with the unique challenge of making sure that the events surrounding the accident show more negatively against the vehicle operator than the pedestrian. This can be accomplished by showing that the pedestrian was in full compliance with all the rules of the road, or that the motorist was distracted or otherwise committing a moving violation.
