(LegalLaw247.com, February 20, 2013 ) KNOXVILLE, TN – It is estimated that every two hours a pedestrian is killed in some form of motor vehicle collision in the United States. On a related subject, a Knoxville pedestrian was recently struck by a car in attempt to flag down this passing vehicle. The man had run out of fuel and was stranded on the side of a dark side road when the collision occurred.
Although this man is expected to make a full recovery, it is often that our Knoxville personal injury attorneys will take cases like these. While pedestrians have the right of way at cross walks, they do not have the right away while crossing the street in an unmarked area. Unfortunately, many pedestrians ignore the necessity to yield and find themselves in vulnerable positions.
At Greg Coleman Law we believe that Knoxville pedestrians deserve a voice in the courtroom. We have many years of experience in personal injury litigation and will work diligently to win the maximum compensation possible for our clients.
In cases like these, pedestrians may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses and damages sustained from the accident. Car vs. pedestrian accidents can be avoided by vehicle operators abiding by all traffic laws and yielding to the right of way of pedestrians crossing intersections. While pedestrians must also look both ways and remain alert for reckless drivers.
If you or a family member has suffered an injury at no fault of your own, you may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages and other damages.
