Cincinnati Pedestrian Accident Lawyers
Walking and biking provide healthy, green ways to commute, in addition to being enjoyable forms of exercise. These pleasurable activities become frighteningly hazardous when drivers refuse to share the road. One reckless action by a motorist can result in grave injuries or death to pedestrians or bicyclists who have no protection.
Young, Reverman & Mazzei Co., L.P.A. was founded in 1972 to help victims of accidents. We are available to help you recover compensation for your injuries.
Hazards to pedestrians
Accidents that hurt or kill pedestrians are usually preventable if motorists act with a minimum level of care. Every day, walkers, joggers, bikers and other pedestrians are needlessly injured because drivers are:
- Distracted by the radio or GPS system
- Driving under the influence (DUI)
- Driving drowsy
- Talking or texting on a mobile phone
Other factors that can contribute to accidents include dim streetlamps, blocked or absent sidewalks, unsynchronized crosswalk and traffic signals, and malfunctioning traffic lights on busy intersections.
Recover after a hit-and-run accident
Shockingly, hit-and-run accidents occur frequently. Intoxicated drivers may flee to avoid DUI or drug possession charges, especially in the absence of witnesses other than an unconscious pedestrian. Law enforcement officers often locate these cowardly motorists, allowing state attorneys to prosecute them in criminal courts and victims to sue in civil lawsuits.
If the absconding driver is never found, you may still have recourse. Your own no-fault auto insurance policy may protect you. You also may have a claim against another negligent party. For example, construction crews are liable for obstructing designated bicycle paths and municipalities are responsible for road conditions that increase the risks to pedestrians.
