What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Jacksonville Pedestrian Accident Lawyer

Walking can be a pleasant way to enjoy the weather and meet neighbors, a healthy and inexpensive way to commute, and an enjoyable way to get one’s daily exercise. Unfortunately, it also has its share of dangers: stray animals, muggers and – most dangerous of all – negligent drivers.

Vehicle Collisions with Pedestrians

Hundreds of pedestrians are killed every year in collisions with automobiles. The results of these accidents are usually lopsided; the pedestrian can be severely injured or killed while the driver and passengers go unharmed. This seems particularly unjust in cases where the collision was caused by the driver’s negligent behavior.

Common causes of vehicular collisions with pedestrians include:

  • Speeding drivers
  • Drivers under the influence of alcohol or other drugs
  • Absent minded or inattentive drivers
  • Drivers who run red lights, make illegal turns, or break other traffic laws

Seeking Compensation

At the offices of Jacksonville personal injury lawyer Donald Guthrie, we believe that pedestrians who are injured by careless drivers should not be forced to handle the physical, emotional and financial strain on their own. The people responsible for pedestrian injuries should be held accountable for their actions. A personal injury lawsuit can help you regain the money lost to medical bills and missed work, as well as win compensation for your physical and emotional pain.

Jacksonville pedestrian accident attorney Donald Guthrie will be happy to review your case, offer you solid legal advice, and argue for your rights in court. Contact our offices at 904-296-1088.
