As a pedestrian, you have the right to use the road, and in most cases you have the right of way. Unfortunately, this doesn't stop car, truck and motorcycle drivers or bicyclists from ignoring your rights and speeding through intersections and crosswalks.
If you or a loved one was hit in a crosswalk, while crossing the street or on a sidewalk or otherwise injured as a pedestrian, you may be wondering where to turn for help.
You do have rights and you are entitled to compensation for your injuries. At the Garza Law Firm PLLC, we have almost a decade of experience helping injury victims in Knoxville and throughout eastern Tennessee protect their rights after accidents.
Committed To Maximizing Your Compensation
At the Garza Law Firm PLLC, we think of our clients as family. We will take the time to get to know you and learn about the impact the accident has had on your life. Together, we will develop a legal strategy that maximizes your compensation and gets your family the resources you need.
If litigation is necessary to get you the compensation you deserve, we will go to court. However, if we can get you the compensation you deserve without the time and stress of trial, we will.
Hit In A Crosswalk, On A Sidewalk Or While Crossing The Street?
Though pedestrians often have the right of way, it is motor vehicles that win in accidents. After being injured in a motor vehicle accident, pedestrians are often left with serious and even fatal injuries, including:
- Broken bones
- Cuts and bruises
- Crushed appendages
- Brain injuries
It is in your best interests to consult an attorney immediately. Important evidence can quickly be lost. You need someone with legal knowledge to investigate the scene of your accident and gather evidence that will support your case.
