Pedestrian Accident Lawsuits

While pedestrians have the right-of-way in most situations on roadways, this does not necessarily keep them safe from harm. Vehicle accidents involving pedestrians occur every day, injuring and killing thousands of people per year. In 2016, almost 6,000 people lost their lives in pedestrian accidents, and it is estimated that well over a hundred thousand were treated in emergency rooms for injuries. When a pedestrian accident occurs, the driver of the vehicle is usually liable for any injuries.

Pedestrians are given the right-of-way in most circumstances since they have no protection against a motorized vehicle. Drivers are cautioned to look for pedestrians at street corners and other crossing spots, as well as in residential neighborhoods. According to NTHSA statistics, most fatal pedestrian accidents involve passenger vehicles, occur at night and in urban areas. However, an accident can occur anytime and anywhere when a driver is not paying attention to his or her surroundings and the pedestrians on the road.

Fault in Pedestrian Injury Accidents

While pedestrians do have the right-of-way in many circumstances, not all pedestrian crashes are the fault of the driver. If a pedestrian runs in front of a car, there may be no way for the driver to avoid a collision. However, it is always important to collect information about the accident and the driver in any pedestrian injury accident. If the driver was intoxicated or driving without a license, they may be liable for any accident if they should not have been behind the wheel. Common carrier vehicles like buses or taxis have a higher responsibility for providing safety on the road and may be liable in pedestrian accidents.

Bruce Millar The Millar Law Firm Atlanta, GA

As an Atlanta Attorney I have known Cale Conley personally for nearly 20 years. I first heard about Cale through other lawyers, who talked about his remarkable skill and great results as a trial attorney. When I finally had the chance to refer a case to Cale and work with him as a colleague, I was blown away by the level of his professionalism, knowledge and skill. Over the past few years I have referred several clients with large and complex cases to Cale and his firm and have been extremely impressed with the results he has obtained! In my opinion, Cale is one of the best Attorneys in the United States. Not just in Atlanta or Georgia, but anywhere. I am totally confident in referring any case or client to him. Not only is he a great attorney, he and his firm and partners take good care of clients and care deeply about them. If I could give Cale and his firm more than 5-Stars I would.

I had the pleasure of trying a very complicated products liability case with Cale Conley and Davis Popper. They and their entire office are fantastic, and I could not recommend them more highly. The entire process, from the time that we brought them in to work with us, through the course of the case and trial, was seamless. Cale, Richard, Rance, and Davis are some of the finest trial lawyers in the Country, and I look forward to working with them on future cases.
