Pedestrian Accident Attorneys in Indianapolis

Fighting for Victims of Catastrophic Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrians are a big part of our transportation system and, under Indiana law, pedestrians always have the right-of-way when traveling to their destination. This law is meant to protect individuals on foot, as they are nearly entirely unprotected when compared to people in cars and other types of motor vehicles. Unfortunately, studies show that 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, it is important that you seek medical attention immediately in order to understand the true severity of your injuries. Next, you should speak to an experienced pedestrian accident attorney in Indianapolis. When you contact Tabor Law Firm, our attorneys act quickly. We know your rights when it comes to walking along the state's sidewalks and trails.

Determining Liability in Pedestrian Accident Cases

People walking on the roadways and sidewalks are at a high risk of severe injuries in the event of an accident, due largely to their vulnerability. Broken bones, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and loss of limbs are just a few of the injuries that a pedestrian can sustain in an accident. Many pedestrian accidents ultimately prove fatal. But, who is responsible for these collisions? As previously stated, pedestrians always have the right-of-way by law, meaning negligent motorists are nearly always at fault.

There are many factors involved in determining liability in pedestrian accident cases. At Tabor Law Firm, we typically look at the following:

  • Whether or not the driver's report of the incident is 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 then try to use to deny liability. We work with our own experts to determine what happened in our efforts to conclusively prove you were not at fault.
  • The various details of the accident: Was it a day or nighttime 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.
  • Previous accidents that have occurred at the same location: If there were any previous accidents that occurred at the same location, we will investigate whether there were any visibility factors that contributed to the incident. Could a local government have taken more action to keep you safe?
