Pedestrians have the right of way where there is a traffic control signal that regulates when they can cross, when they cross the street at an intersection and when in a crosswalk or on the sidewalk. Pedestrians must not dart into traffic and hope that a car will not hit them. The driver of a motor vehicle must exercise due care when driving and take the necessary steps to avoid injuring a pedestrian.

If you have been injured in a pedestrian accident you should consult with an attorney to ensure that you will be adequately compensated for your medical care and any additional damages you have suffered. Our team is available for a free consultation concerning your injury case, contact us today for an appointment.

Washington State follows the concept of comparative negligence when assessing car and pedestrian accident settlements. In comparative negligence, the law recognizes that both parties may bear some responsibility for an accident. In this situation, the degree to which each party contributed to the negligence will be determined, and the settlement will be adjusted accordingly. Washington allows plaintiffs in accident cases to seek compensation even if they were partially at fault for the accident.

Washington imposes a three-year statute of limitations on personal injury claims. This means that a lawsuit must be filed within three years from the date the accident occurred. In cases of Wrongful Death, the time frame commences from the date of the death, not the date of the accident. The statute of limitations does not apply to insurance claims. Insurance claims must be filed according to the terms of the applicable policy. Generally, insurance companies require you to file a claim or notice of claim promptly or within a reasonable time frame.

If your injuries allow, get the contact information for the driver of the vehicle as well as any witnesses to the accident. Document as much of the scene as you can including the time, place and conditions. If possible, take photographs or diagram the situation. Making a police report will also help when it comes time to seek compensation for your injuries. Above all, seek medical care for any injuries immediately.

Pedestrian accidents can be difficult to resolve on your own. Insurance companies are often unreasonable or may offer small settlements when dealing with claims made by pedestrians. An experienced attorney not only knows what your claim is worth, they have years of experience in the complex negotiations required to get the maximum settlement. In the event that your claim must go to trial, a skilled lawyer will be adept at gathering the necessary documentation, lining up expert testimony and putting together a compelling case that will deliver the results you need.

We look forward to meeting you and to discussing your case. We take this opportunity to introduce ourselves and get to know you in a friendly, no-pressure setting. We will also want to learn about your accident and any related injuries. It is often helpful for you to bring any documentation you currently have so we can gain a more thorough understanding of the situation.
