West Palm Beach Pedestrian Accident Lawyers
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration defines a pedestrian as any person on foot, walking, running, jogging, hiking, in a wheelchair, sitting, or lying down. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports an annual 5,000 pedestrians die each year in motor vehicle accidents, and thousands of others suffer from non-vehicular accidents that occur due to poor maintenance, sidewalk or parking lot defects, or construction interference.
Upon injury from either a vehicle or a property defect, it is possible for one to recover damages if the injuries suffered were caused by another party’s negligence. However, the legal complications that surround filing and pursuing such a case are vast. If you aren’t fully knowledgeable of the proceedings of the court and what is expected, it is likely that you will be unable to secure the compensation you desperately need. The legal system must be navigated with intentional tact and expertise in order to succeed. At Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller & Overbeck, P.A., our West Palm Beach pedestrian accident attorneys have over 35 years of practice guiding clients through this process and representing them in a way that cuts through the inevitable confusion.
How a Pedestrian Accident Lawyer can Help
There are a number of things that must be assessed and presented to the court when filing a suit. Without the help of a knowledgeable attorney, it can be difficult to present a robust case while also maintaining your rights throughout the entirety of the process. When assessing your case, an attorney can provide helpful guidance on a variety of actions that may need to be taken, including:
- Establishing reliable proof of a defendant’s negligence
- Determining which parties may be held responsible for the injury
- Navigating premises liability claims and establishing proof of dangerous conditions
- Proving your exercise of “reasonable care” as a pedestrian at time of incident
This is only a broad outline of some the components of the legal process that must be covered. An attorney will have all of the experience necessary to fight for your rights.
