If you were injured while crossing the street at a crosswalk, you may have the right to recover damages from the motorist who hit you. A crosswalk exists at every intersection, whether the crosswalk is marked or not. A person crossing the road in a crosswalk has the right of way and motor vehicles are required to stop for the person and let him or her reach the other side of the road without hindrance or injury.

A number of crosswalk accidents occur in marked crosswalks that are in the middle of the block rather than at an intersection. In such a situation, warning signs that a crosswalk is ahead should be placed to give adequate warning to the driver of the impending crosswalk so that he or she may be on the lookout for pedestrians crossing the street.

A person who is lawfully crossing the street in a crosswalk may suffer serious injuries, even death, if he or she is hit by a passing car that does not yield the right of way to him or her or was distracted or otherwise not paying attention to the road ahead to see the “crosswalk ahead” warning signs or the persons crossing the street. The person may suffer broken limbs and internal injuries, a spinal cord injury that results in permanent paralysis from the neck (“quadriplegia”) or waist (“paraplegia”) down. Often the pedestrian is thrown to the ground, suffering head injuries that may include traumatic brain injuries.

If you have been injured or a loved one killed in an accident while crossing the road in a crosswalk—especially if the injuries are serious or a death is involved—it is imperative that you contact an experienced personal injury lawyer immediately. Do not talk with an insurance company investigator or adjuster before you have had the chance to retain a lawyer. The lawyer will often advise you against giving a statement to the insurance company’s adjuster, as they are trained to trick you into saying things that will come back to haunt you at a later stage of the case.

If you or a loved one has been seriously injured or killed in a pedestrian accident, contact an experienced personal injury lawyer immediately so he or she can start working right away to obtain all the monetary compensation you are entitled to.
