Wisconsin Pedestrian Accident Lawyers
Drivers do not only have a responsibility towards other vehicles on the road. It is also vitally important for them to be able to share the roads safely with people on foot. Sadly, drivers do not always take this responsibility seriously enough. In 2003, about 70,000 pedestrians nationwide were killed or injured in accidents involving motor vehicles.
The Wisconsin pedestrian accident lawyers at Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® believe in fair compensation for the victims of negligent behavior. We believe that you should not have to take on medical bills, missed work, and other losses because of another person’s errors. To discuss what we can do for you, call us at 800-242-2874.
Causes and Consequences of Pedestrian Accidents
Serious pedestrian accidents can occur all too easily, especially when drivers take unnecessary risks such as:
- Speeding (which increases both the likelihood of an accident and severity of an accident)
- Failure to pay close attention to one’s surroundings
- Ignoring pedestrians’ right of way
- Reckless driving
- Failure to compensate for blind spots
When unsafe drivers cause pedestrian accidents, the results are rarely fair. Even if the pedestrian is fully blameless, he or she is likely to suffer far more serious injuries than the driver or any vehicle passengers. Being hit by a motor vehicle can have catastrophic consequences, including lasting disabilities, chronic pain, staggering medical bills, and even death.
It is not right for an accident victim and his or her family to live with such consequences when they are not at fault. That is why our Wisconsin pedestrian injury lawyers work so diligently to help the victims of negligent actions.
