Whenever automobiles, pedestrians, and bicyclists are forced to share a road, it is nearly impossible to avoid accidents. As our streets become easier for pedestrians to access, the number of those that walk or bike to and from work is constantly increasing. Unfortunately, the idea that pedestrians have the right-of-way is not a concept that all drivers hold dear. Because of this, pedestrian accidents can occur when a vehicle collides with a pedestrian.
At Shelnutt & Varner, our accident attorneys have decades of experience with pedestrian accidents. We understand the horrible nature of injuries that can occur when a vehicle collides with a person and how to properly navigate the lawsuit in order to maximize your award or settlement.
