The only way Arkansas’ roads will be safe is if we share the road with pedestrians. Alan LeVar understands that pedestrians should be able to safely and legally cross busy intersections without fear of a potentially lethal accident.
When you’re walking, you are extremely vulnerable to the cars driving alongside you. Unlike bicyclists, who have protective gear, pedestrians have no protection when they’re crossing the streets. A driver’s mistake can easily leave you with truly devastating injuries, regardless of whether you follow all the rules and laws.
Alan LeVar is ready to fight for you if you’ve been injured in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence or misconduct. The team at The Law Offices of Alan LeVar can help you pursue justice and compensation for your injury.
If you live in Arkansas, have been hurt in an accident while you were walking, and you need an experienced lawyer, please call The Law Offices of Alan LeVar today at (888) 220-7068.
Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents
In some ways it’s inaccurate to refer to these incidents as “accidents.” The word “accident” implies something that was inevitable or unavoidable, with no one at fault. In reality, most of the incidents our lawyers handle were far from inevitable, they were eminently avoidable and someone was certainly at fault.
So while there are a number of specific causes for accidents involving pedestrians, the root cause is almost always some form of negligence. Specific forms of negligence include:
- Running a red light and striking a pedestrian legally in a crosswalk
- Driving while intoxicated
- A driver not stopping at a stop sign while it is the pedestrian’s right of way to cross
- Failure to make proper adjustments for weather conditions
- Failing to signal while turning
Mr. LeVar and our entire team have experience investigating these accidents, determining cause and proving fault in court.
Pedestrian Accident Settlements Include
The injuries pedestrians suffer in accidents with cars tend to be severe, and the resulting financial burdens are heavy.
Our lawyers can usually pursue compensation for:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Diminished earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Funeral expenses (in wrongful death cases)
No lawyer can promise you a specific settlement amount, and the compensation available to you will be determined by the unique circumstances of your case.
Mr. LeVar and his team will evaluate your case at a free consultation, determine if you have a viable claim and then advise you on the best course of action. Our lawyers cares more about what’s right for you then what’s good for his profit margin.
