The First Steps After the Accident

Pedestrian accidents can often lead to serious injuries. If you or a loved one has been hit by a car, the first thing you need to do is seek medical attention. Only then should you consider the legal implications of your accident. Regardless of what you may have been told by law enforcement, your insurance company, or anybody else, you should contact an attorney about your case. Doing so can make sure your rights and the rights of your loved ones are protected and that you are not taken advantage of in your time of crisis.

Do you have a case?

While the laws can vary from place to place, it is the responsibility of pedestrians and drivers alike to practice caution and stay attentive and aware in order to keep everyone safe. Depending on the circumstances of your accident, you may have a case against the driver that hit you or your loved one.

Our most common pedestrian cases include:
Distracted driving including drivers texting or using their phones while driving.
Crosswalks, sidewalks, and intersections where drivers don’t rightfully give the right-of-way to pedestrians.
Jaywalking in busy areas with high pedestrian traffic.
Parking lot accidents that are caused by drivers backing up too quickly or not paying attention to passersby.
Drunk driving or otherwise driving under the influence.
Hit and run accidents where a driver strikes a pedestrian then leaves the scene.
Left turns, statistically the most likely to result in pedestrian accidents on the road.

The best way to know whether you have a case is to talk to an attorney. At Spivak and Sakellariou, these types of cases are our focus, so we know the law and how it may apply to you and your accident. We want to hear your story and help you determine if you should pursue your case.

Pedestrian Accident FAQs

What if the accident was my fault?


You don’t have to be totally faultless to make a claim and to deserve compensation. Let us explain how we might be able to help you even if you were ticketed for your accident.

Is it my fault if there was no control signal at a cross-section?


If there are no control signals present, drivers must yield to pedestrians crossing the roadway in a crosswalk when the pedestrian is in the same half of the roadway as the driver or the pedestrian is in danger.

What if I violated a crosswalk law or control signal?


In the situation that you may have violated a control signal, crosswalk, or other law, it is possible that you could be found “at fault” if hit by a car. In these situations, many victims are rejected by insurance. However, it is a good idea to reach out to a qualified and experienced attorney as it may still be possible to receive compensation.

What if there is no crosswalk nearby, should drivers yield to pedestrians?


Generally, pedestrians who are crossing a roadway must yield the right-of-way to all vehicles, except when crossing at a crosswalk. If there is no designated crosswalk, the pedestrian must yield the right-of-way to all traffic upon the roadway. However, there are still scenarios where it may still be possible to receive compensation. Reach out to a qualified and experienced attorney to assess your side of the story.

What if my insurance company already denied me?


Working with insurance companies can be frustrating. Even if you have been denied, don’t give up. We understand how insurance companies pick and choose claims and can help you navigate the process. We have experience in handling situations like yours and have secured settlements for our clients.

What if I can’t afford a lawyer at this time?


You don’t pay a dime unless we win your case. We understand that accidents are not only an emotional burden, but a financial one, too. We work on a contingency fee, which means you do not pay anything up front and we will forward all case expenses on your behalf.

Can you help me with my medical bills?


The right attorney can help you negotiate with your medical providers and the insurance company so you not only get the best care possible, but you don’t go broke in the process. At Spivak and Sakellariou, we’ve helped our clients negotiate millions of dollars in medical debt. Call us to see if we can help you do the same.

How much can I expect to win?


The amounts will vary for each unique incident. But there are some damages that apply in most accident cases. These include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Loss of income and future earnings
  • Property damage
  • Funeral costs if a loved one was killed.

Non-economic damages may also apply to your case for things like:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of companionship
  • Loss of Care
