Pedestrian Injuries

Walking can be an enjoyable, healthy, and environmentally conscious means of transportation. Not only does a pedestrian get to enjoy the natural benefits of a beautiful day but they are also benefiting their own personal health at the same time. But that benefit can quickly be negated by the negligence of an inattentive or reckless motorist. A pedestrian can be indefensibly vulnerable to injury by a vehicle that is carelessly operated, whether it is a bike, motorcycle, or car.

If you or someone you love has been injured in a pedestrian accident, you deserve to be compensated for the pain and suffering you have been forced to endure. Pedestrian accidents can be extremely damaging and you need experienced legal counsel to defend your rights as a pedestrian. Please contact your Iowa personal injury lawyers at LaMarca Law Group, P.C. by calling (515) 705-0233 for more information on your rights as a pedestrian.

Be Aware of Potential Pedestrian Accidents

Many pedestrian accidents occur because of a misunderstanding of the right-of-way between drivers and pedestrians. Drivers are required to yield to pedestrians who are legally using a cross-walk or crossing a street. Because of drivers’ failure to recognize these rights-of-way, there are a few common locations that pedestrian accidents tend to occur in:

  • Intersections with marked crosswalks
  • Intersections without marked crosswalks
  • Street crossings with nearby parked vehicles
  • Streets without sidewalks

Drivers have a responsibility to be aware of pedestrians and to honor their right-of-way in street crossing situations. This is true even if a vehicle is turning from one street onto another. Drivers must be aware of pedestrians at all times.
