Lancaster Pedestrian Accidents Attorneys
Pedestrian accidents can have devastating consequences for those involved, as a pedestrian has no means of protection if he or she is struck by a vehicle. As such, motorists need to be especially careful around crosswalks, parking lots, and streets with heavy foot traffic. Even when traveling at a low rate of speed, motor vehicles can knock pedestrians over and cause them to suffer severe injuries including brain trauma and internal organ damage.
Unfortunately, pedestrian accidents are by no means uncommon, but the Law Office of Bill Pelhan stands with those in Lancaster who have been injured because of a motorist’s careless actions. We provide our clients with powerful legal assistance to help them in their fight for justice.
Injuries Caused by Pedestrian Accidents
While pedestrians must exercise care when near the road, motorists are responsible for yielding to pedestrians at both marked and unmarked crosswalks when there are no traffic signals regulating the intersection. Additionally, both parties must obey traffic signals when they are present. If motorists fail to give pedestrians right-of-way when necessary, those on foot can suffer the following injuries:
- Broken bones
- Internal organ damage
- Head and brain trauma
- Neck and spinal cord injuries
Pedestrians injured in these types of accidents may be entitled to seek compensation from the responsible party, potentially securing coverage for their medical bills, out-of-pocket costs, and even wages lost during recovery.
