PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENTS

Attorney Steven Wingo has been protecting the rights of injured pedestrians since 1994. He has the experience and resources to help you get compensation to pay for your expenses.

PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENTS IN CROSSWALKS

Recent data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is startling. On average, 13 people die every day as a result of pedestrian crashes. That is one fatality every 107 minutes. The report concludes that Florida, Texas, and California have more pedestrian deaths than any other states.

Nearly 10 percent of these pedestrian fatalities result from crosswalk accidents.

Crosswalk accidents are frequently the result of driver negligence. A driver who is texting, speeding, or simply not paying attention runs into a person who is crossing the intersection with the right of way. Crosswalk accidents may cause injury to a walker, bicyclist, jogger, or other pedestrian. Given the size and weight of motor vehicles and the speed at which they travel, such accidents cause serious injuries.

FINDING COVERAGE OPTIONS FOR PEDESTRIANS

While you may not have car insurance to protect you after your accident, there are still options available to pedestrians. Attorney Wingo can take a close look at your insurance policy and that of the negligent driver to determine the best course of action. From uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage to homeowners insurance, you may have more options than you realize.

Attorney Wingo and his staff care about the firm’s clients and have helped a significant number of individuals get their lives back on track through successful pursuit of a personal injury claim. They understand your loss when your ability to perform basic activities is limited after a pedestrian accident.
