Pedestrians are a big part of our transportation system, and, under Indiana law, pedestrians have the right of way to safely travel to their destination. Unfortunately, a pedestrian in the U.S. is hurt every eight minutes, and Indianapolis is one of the worst cities in the country for preventable pedestrian accidents.
If you are injured in a pedestrian accident, seek medical attention immediately to understand the severity of your injuries. Then talk to our lawyers at Tabor Law Firm. When you contact us, our attorneys act quickly. We know your rights when it comes to walking along the state's sidewalks and trails. We work diligently to assess liability against a person or entity and take on the big insurance companies that are actively working against you.
How We Can Help You
People walking on the roadways and sidewalks are in greater danger to severe injuries due to their vulnerability. Broken bones, spinal injury, traumatic brain injury, loss of limbs and death are just a few of the injuries that a pedestrian can sustain during a pedestrian accident.
We build a strong case by conducting a thorough investigation into the details of your accident:
Is the driver's report of the incident the same as yours: It's not uncommon for a driver to report facts to his insurance company that are not correct and that the insurance company will use to deny any claims of liability. We work with our own experts to determine what happened to prove you were not at fault.
- We'll discuss the details of the accident: Was it a day or night time collision, and what color of clothes were you wearing? It does not matter if you were crossing in the middle of the street. If we can establish that the driver was not paying attention, you can take action.
We'll look at previous accidents at the same location: If there were any, are there visibility factors that contributed to the incident? Could a local government have taken more action to keep you safe?
