Walking You Through The Aftermath Of A Pedestrian Accident

Thousands of people suffer grave or fatal injuries every year while doing everyday things like walking through a parking lot or crossing a street. Pedestrians are vulnerable to serious injuries any time they are struck by a moving vehicle.

Pedestrian accidents are often preventable — the result of negligent or reckless actions of another party. At Thompson & Thomas, P.A., in West Palm Beach, our lawyers help victims understand their right to recovery, and we vigorously protect the interests of those who have suffered in pedestrian accidents.

Who Is At Fault For Your Accident?

At-fault drivers and their insurance companies may attempt to shift a portion of the blame to you or offer a settlement that significantly undervalues the physical, financial and emotional costs of your accident. These strategies do not intimidate our attorneys. We work diligently to identify liable parties and hold them fully accountable.

Pedestrian accidents are a growing concern in Florida. Likely causes for this type of motor vehicle accident include:

  • Distracted drivers failing to see people walking or running
  • Drivers making right turns without yielding to pedestrians in crosswalks
  • People driving too fast through areas with a lot of foot traffic
  • Drivers failing to yield the right of way to pedestrians

You may have a claim to no-fault benefits through your own insurance after a pedestrian accident. However, that may not be sufficient to cover your medical bills and truly compensate you for pain and suffering. We will explore all options, pursuing recovery from all available sources, including a personal injury claim.
