Frisco Pedestrian Accident Lawyer

For some, enjoying a calm, peaceful walk can be a nice way of relaxing after a hard day at work. For others, it is their only mode of transportation. Frisco’s streets have many pieces of safety equipment and traffic laws designed to make pedestrians safer. Still, many people are injured in collisions with cars every day. Even if a person is walking across the street while not in a crosswalk, the driver may still be held responsible for the injury.

The opposite is also true: just because a person is in a crosswalk does not mean they have free reign to cross the road. Frisco pedestrian accident lawyers help people understand the laws concerning pedestrian accidents and pursue appropriate compensation for their injuries.

Drivers’ Rights vs. Pedestrians’ Rights

All drivers learn in drivers’ school they must yield to pedestrians in crosswalks. But rarely is the situation that simple. True, if a person is struck while utilizing a crosswalk, it is most likely the driver’s fault. What if fog is obscuring the road, not giving the driver enough time to come to a stop? Or what if the pedestrian crosses in front of a green light? These questions complicate what might be an otherwise simple case.

At its core, all pedestrian accident cases are examined under the theory of negligence. This means that the driver must be found to have violated a rule of the road, or alternatively, to have behaved in a careless way, to be found at fault. One of the legal concepts that help plaintiffs is called negligence per se. In short, the law states that if a person is violating a law when they are involved in an accident, that accident is assumed to be their fault. Examples of commonly violated laws that can lead to the need for a Frisco pedestrian accident lawyer include:

  • Failing to yield at a crosswalk
  • Speeding
  • Ignoring stop signs
  • Violating no turn on red laws
  • Making illegal turns

If a police report taken at the scene indicates the driver was in violation of these laws, a plaintiff’s case becomes much simpler.

To prove that the defendant driver was acting carelessly, the case as a whole is examined. The time of day, weather, traffic conditions and even the clothing worn by the injured person are all factors in determining fault.

Investigations at the scene are extremely important in these cases since the injured party and driver can often tell very different versions of what happened. Defendants’ insurance companies will naturally believe their own client over the injured party so unbiased reporting is crucial. A prompt and thorough police investigation is therefore key to any pedestrian accident claim.

I was in an accident in March and had injuries resulting from the crash. Obviously my first call was to a doctor to get... checked out but was told I was going to need physical therapy. My second call was to the McCraw Law Group. They took care of all of the grunt work so that all I had to focus on was getting better. They were very communicative about the process, and better yet, they were incredibly responsive to any emails, calls, and questions. I was very appreciative and thankful for all of their hard work. They are a great group of people to work with when you’re needing the help.read more
