What Is A Pedestrian Accident Claim?

A pedestrian accident claim arises following a negligent driver causing injury to a pedestrian. These claims are legal demands for financial compensation that the pedestrian is entitled to following the incident. 

An insurance company may agree upon a settlement in certain situations; however, it may be necessary for the claim to be tried in front of a court. This is why it is important to contact an experienced accident attorney right away to ensure your rights are protected and that you can be properly compensated for your damages.

What Are Some Common Causes Of Pedestrian Accidents?

Unfortunately, there are many possible ways a pedestrian accident can be caused. Some of the most common causes of pedestrian accidents include: 

  • Negligent driving
  • Speeding
  • Failure to stop
  • Failing to account for poor lighting
  • Operating too fast for conditions
  • Failure to yield/right of way violations

Can I Be Compensated For My Pedestrian Accident Injuries In Colorado?

The ability to receive compensation for your pedestrian accident claim is entirely dependent upon the cause of the accident and the extent of injuries incurred.
