Slocumb Law Firm Fights for Pedestrian Accident Victims in Montgomery

If you were on foot and hit by a car, truck, bus or some other motor vehicle, you may need a pedestrian accident attorney to help you secure compensation for your losses. Slocumb Law Firm based in Alabama provides aggressive representation for people who were injured while on foot or while riding bicycles. We understand how devastating a pedestrian accident can be. After all, someone who is walking across a street in Montgomery will generally have little to no protection against the impact of a large vehicle. Often, the pedestrian first sustains an injury from the impact of the vehicle, and then sustains further injuries after being thrown by the force of the collision.

Types of Pedestrian Accident Injuries

Pedestrians struck by vehicles often face catastrophic or even fatal injuries. For example, an accident involving a student from Alabama State University in Montgomery might result in a traumatic brain injury or spinal cord damage. Someone walking across S. Union Street near the Alabama State Capitol might be struck down by a car and sustain potentially fatal internal injuries.

Other types of pedestrian injuries from accidents include:

  • Broken bones and fractures
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Road rash injuries from the skin being scrapped across the roadway

In an accident involving a fatality, you may need to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit to obtain compensation for losses including hospital care, funeral expenses and lost income, among other potential damages. Mike Slocumb Law Firm understands how overwhelming such cases can be for people who simply want to grieve and put their lives back together. But it's critical to take legal action promptly to protect your rights. The Alabama statute of limitations requires families to take action within two years of the date of death.

How Do Pedestrian Accidents Happen?

All types of driver negligence play roles in pedestrian accidents. People on foot or bicycles often get injured at intersections, where drivers fail to stop for them in a crosswalk. Some of the causes of accidents include the following:

  • Failing to stop for a red light or stop sign
  • Drunk driving
  • Turns at intersections without looking for pedestrians in crosswalk
  • Distractions such as texting or talking a on a cellphone

In any case involving a pedestrian accident, our attorneys will conduct a thorough investigation to determine negligence and hold the responsible parties accountable. Too much is at stake to handle the case on your own. Put experience on your side. Call Slocumb Law Firm today at 1-800-HURTLINE.
