Pedestrian Accident Lawyers in Louisville

40 Years of Combined Legal Experience in Your Corner

Pedestrians are among the most vulnerable of all people when involved in accidents. Even a slow-moving vehicle can cause serious physical injury to a pedestrian. This is because pedestrians have no bodily protection to buffer the impact of being struck or thrown. Without seat belts, air bags, or the steel structure of a car around them, pedestrians are more likely to sustain devastating injuries or even death after a vehicle strikes them.

If you have been injured as a pedestrian in Louisville or the surrounding area, contact Walker Wallace PLC. We can review your case and advise you concerning legal recourse in pursuit of the compensation you need to recover and put your life back on track – your recovery is our top priority. Our pedestrian accident attorneys in Louisville have a long and successful history of serving clients in personal injury cases throughout the area.

Nationwide Pedestrian Traffic Accident Trends Affecting Louisville

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has reported that close to 6,000 pedestrians lost their lives in traffic accidents in 2016 and nearly 129,000 pedestrians were injured in traffic accidents in 2015. The CDC estimates that pedestrians are 1.5 times more likely to die in traffic-related accidents than the drivers or passengers in motor vehicles.

These accidents occur mostly in urban environments and often at night when pedestrians are difficult to see. Those most likely to be involved in pedestrian accidents are children and senior citizens. Pedestrians should practice safety by wearing bright colors or reflective vests, cross only at designated crosswalks, and when walking along highways stick to the shoulder facing oncoming traffic.

Despite taking safety measures, pedestrians can become the unfortunate victims of reckless, distracted, drunk, and irresponsible drivers. If you have been injured because of a negligent or inattentive driver, you need an advocate on your side as soon as possible. You should not agree to anything from an insurance company until you have been advised of your legal rights and options by Walker Wallace PLC.

You may be eligible for:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering compensation
  • Lost wages or income compensation
