Determining Liability After a Pedestrian Accident

In addition to physical and property damage, an accident victim may feel very frustrated upon receiving a denial of liability from the at-fault party’s insurance provider. If that is your case, we promise to talk about the experience with you until all your questions have been answered:

  • How can you prove it was the driver’s fault?
  • How will your medical bills get paid?
  • What are your legal options?
  • What happens if you’re too injured to work?

The best way to prove liability is to take photos or videos of the scene, of your injuries, and any further damage. Next, write down the names and contact information of anyone who might have witnessed your pedestrian accident. Finally, you should keep a detailed log of every medical provider you see for your injuries. These three things can go a long way in ensuring you receive fair compensation for your injuries.

An experienced Advocate will have familiarity with all of the frequent pedestrian accident causes and be able to assist in proving you were not at fault.

You Deserve an Advocate for Your Spokane Pedestrian Accident

Pedestrian laws in Spokane and the Pacific Northwest clearly state that vehicles should always yield to pedestrians when they cross a roadway within a marked crosswalk. When yielding, vehicles should come to a complete stop. 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

The Advocates will be your best ally in restoring your life to how it was before your accident. No one should navigate the justice system on their own. Not only is it better to focus all your energy on making a full recovery, but injured parties without legal representation typically only get fractions of the compensation due.

If you’ve been injured in a pedestrian accident, you need the best representation available in the Spokane Valley. What you need is an Advocate on your side. Our Spokane attorneys are ready to listen to your story, assess the value of your accident claim, and then negotiate a just settlement for the injuries and losses you have suffered. Don’t wait to call our Spokane office for a free evaluation.
