Covington Pedestrian Accident Attorney

When there is a collision between a car and a pedestrian, there is great potential for serious injury. About 5,000 pedestrians are killed and another 64,000 are injured in motor vehicle accidents in the U.S. every year. According to the National Highway Traffic Association, about 11% of all motor vehicle deaths involve pedestrians. Most pedestrian accidents involve a moving car. With the weight and speed of the vehicle, this results in often catastrophic injuries.

If you or a family member has been injured in a pedestrian accident, and you believe that the other party's negligence caused the accident, you have the legal right to sue for compensation for your injuries. It is vital to have a seasoned Northern Kentucky personal injury attorney representing you to recover fair and just damages in your case. Robert Raper understands the strategies and tactics insurance companies use to minimize or deny you compensation. He will aggressively use these tactics to pursue the money that you need for your medical treatment and other expenses.

Causes of Pedestrian Accidents

If reasonable care is not used by a driver, and a car accident occurs, he or she may be guilty of negligence. Some of the ways a driver may be negligent include:

  • Drug or alcohol use
  • Using a cell phone or texting
  • Reckless driving
  • Ignoring posted speed limits
  • Fatigue
  • Eating while driving
  • Not signaling when turning

If you believe the driver of a vehicle has been negligent and is responsible for your pedestrian accident injuries, qualified legal counsel should be sought as soon as possible to pursue the full and fair recovery you deserve.
