An accident, even at a small speed, can severely disable a pedestrian.

Pedestrians are the most vulnerable of all groups on our roadways. In 2012, 4,743 pedestrians were killed and 76,000 pedestrians were injured in vehicle-pedestrian accidents in the United States, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Both pedestrians and drivers are required to exercise ordinary care when using roadways. An accident, even at a small speed, can severely disable a pedestrian. Thus, it is important for both drivers and pedestrians to follow the rules of the road to reduce the chances of an accident and injury.

Each year, there are thousands of non-vehicle-pedestrian accidents, such as falling objects and slip and fall accidents.

In these situations, it is critical to consult with an attorney at Schum Law to preserve your claim. Your time limit for filing a claim may change depending on whether the party at fault is a governmental unit. At Schum Law we take careful analysis in each pedestrian accident case to determine liability of the parties involved in the case and protect your claim. If you have suffered from an injury as a pedestrian, our attorneys will focus on getting you the compensation you deserve while you focus on recovering.
