Lawyer Filing Pedestrian Accident Lawsuits

Attorney Kristen Beightol is an experienced pedestrian accident lawyer in the state of North Carolina. She frequently represents injured pedestrians or their surviving family members in civil lawsuits. She recently discussed how these victims can seek compensation for the damages caused during a pedestrian accident.

"While using common roads, drivers and pedestrians are expected to exercise a reasonable Duty of Care. Drivers are often held to a higher standard because of their ability to react quickly and avoid accidents, especially when children and the elderly are involved. Many times the cause of an accident can be due to negligent drivers.

A driver may be considered negligent for any of the following:

  • distracted driving
  • speeding
  • failing to yield the right of way at crosswalks
  • failing to use turn signals
  • neglecting to stop at lights and stop signs
  • driving while intoxicated

If a pedestrian is injured or does not survive an accident, they or their family may file a claim on their behalf to recover damages. They will have to prove the accident was caused due to the negligence of the driver. Family members who choose to file a lawsuit should seek the guidance of an experienced pedestrian accident lawyer to learn more."
