Jacksonville Pedestrian Accident Attorney

Suffered Injury as a Pedestrian?

Pedestrian accidents often cause severe injuries to the victim, requiring extensive medical treatment and a long period of recovery. If you have been injured in a car accident or bicycle accident while on foot, it is advisable to seek legal representation in your claim for compensation. An experienced Jacksonville personal injury lawyer from Jason K.S. Porter, P.A. is available to speak with you about the accident to determine the most effective strategy for pursuing a settlement. Success in a personal injury case largely depends on proving that the other party's negligence was the cause of the accident, and as former prosecutors we have extensive experience with assembling the necessary evidence to build a strong argument on your behalf.

The damages in a pedestrian accident claim are typically awarded according to the rule of comparative negligence. If the driver can be demonstrated to be 100% at fault for the accident, you may be awarded full damages, while if your own negligence is seen to be the partial cause of the accident you will receive a reduced award of damages. Common examples of driver actions which lead to pedestrian injury include failure to yield at intersections and crosswalks, pulling too quickly out of blind driveways and distracted driving, such as texting on a cell phone. Drunk driving accidents cause a large percentage of pedestrian injuries, including situations where the driver swerves off the road or runs a red light.

Pedestrians are exposed to an extreme risk of physical harm in an accident, as they have absolutely no protection. If you suffered any type of spinal cord injury or brain injury, you may be faced with a difficult period of recovery, or full or partial disability. Perhaps you lost a family member in a pedestrian accident and now want to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit. No matter what type of injuries and losses you have suffered, you should not be forced to pay the price for the driver's negligence.
