Bellingham Pedestrian Accident Lawyers Concerned with Your Rights

Drivers have a responsibility to yield to pedestrians walking in crosswalks, on sidewalks, in parking lots, or any other place occupied with both cars and pedestrians. When yielding, vehicles should come to a complete stop while they allow any and all pedestrians to safely cross the road. Drivers must be diligent in keeping an eye out for pedestrians. Unfortunately, pedestrian automobile accidents often cause serious injury or even death. Some of the more common injuries are:

  • Broken bones

  • Cuts – bruises – and scrapes

  • Concussions

  • Torn and sprained ligaments

  • Hemorrhages and hematomas

  • Traumatic brain injuries
