Do You Have Legal Options If You Lost a Loved One in a Pedestrian Accident?

Thousands of pedestrians are struck and killed by motor vehicles each year. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Governors’ Highway Safety Association, nearly 6,000 pedestrians lost their lives in motor vehicle crashes in 2016 and 2017. 

These numbers represent a nationwide increase of 27% from 2007-2017. As a result of this dramatic increase, pedestrians now account for the most significant proportion of traffic fatalities over the last 33 years.

Why do So Many Deadly Pedestrian Accidents Occur?

Compared to collisions involving motor vehicles, pedestrians in Connecticut are 1.5 times more likely to be killed in a car accident than individuals in a motor vehicle. 

In addition to speed, experts cite alcohol use, failure to obey traffic laws, increased smartphone use by drivers, and the legalization of marijuana as potential contributing factors to the substantial increase in pedestrian fatalities due to motor vehicle accidents. 

A New Haven pedestrian accident lawyer can review the specific causes of your loved one’s accident, using evidence to build a wrongful death claim for your family.

Who Faces Pedestrian Accidents in New Haven?

Anyone could get struck by a vehicle in New Haven, CT. However, pedestrians most vulnerable to being hit by a motor vehicle are adults aged 60 and older and children under 15. 

In Connecticut, pedestrians in a crosswalk have the right of way to motor vehicles. Despite this law, motor vehicles strike pedestrians in Connecticut daily. Pedestrians face these severe accidents:

  • On roadways
  • In intersections
  • On crosswalks
  • In parking lots
  • While on sidewalks
  • In school crossing zones
  • In school pick-up and drop-off areas

Individuals involved in these incidents typically suffer severe injuries, including death. A pedestrian accident attorney in New Haven, CT, can focus on the specifics of your accident, helping you regardless of the causes of your collision.

Can Pedestrians do Anything to Prevent Accidents in New Haven?

A pedestrian accident can occur anywhere, and many happen at night. Therefore, pedestrians need to make themselves as visible as possible by wearing brightly colored or reflective clothing and by using marked crosswalks and sidewalks where available.

If a sidewalk is unavailable, pedestrians should walk towards oncoming traffic as close to the side of the road as possible. Using these pedestrian suggestions, a pedestrian decreases their risk of being hit by a motor vehicle.

Taking charge of your safety can help you avoid a collision with a motor vehicle. However, we understand that some accidents are unavoidable. In these situations, you can work with a New Haven pedestrian accident lawyer to seek damages for your losses. 

Can a Driver Blame You for a New Haven Pedestrian Accident?

A driver’s insurance company may try to place blame for the accident on the pedestrian. Unfortunately, an insurance company putting the blame on a pedestrian is a tactic that often leads to the pedestrian believing that no fault lies with the motor vehicle operator. 

In many situations, this may be a false belief. The insurance company may deny a claim outright or attempt to downplay the extent of the injuries involved. 

Regardless of where a pedestrian gets struck, it is essential to consult an experienced New Haven pedestrian accident attorney to evaluate the facts, circumstances, and liability issues.

How Can a New Haven Pedestrian Accident Lawyer Handle Your Claim?

Your pedestrian accident lawyer in New Haven, CT, can step in to assist with every aspect of your case. Our team begins by providing you with a free consultation to review your case’s specifics. 

Once we understand your legal needs, we can: 

Collect Evidence to Build Your Pedestrian Accident Claim

We focus on gathering evidence that supports your story of events after a New Haven pedestrian accident. We can adjust the investigative strategies we use to address your specific needs. In many cases, we:

  • Question witnesses who saw your pedestrian accident
  • Look for video or photo evidence from the collision 
  • Visit the accident scene to take in what happened
  • Obtain a copy of your police pedestrian accident report
  • Work with pedestrian accident experts 

Once we have a firm understanding of your accident, we can move forward with your claim. 

Deal with Insurance Agents for You

Insurance agents focus on protecting the bottom line for their company. As a result, they often try to push individuals into signing deals immediately after a pedestrian accident, trying to get you to accept a subpar amount of compensation. 

We deal with these representatives on your behalf, allowing you to recover from your injuries. Make sure you speak with a New Haven pedestrian accident lawyer before signing any documents or making a recorded statement. 

Negotiate a Pedestrian Accident Settlement 

Personal injury claims, including pedestrian injury claims, are often settled before filing a lawsuit. If the lawyer thinks that they can settle a case, they will make a demand to the other lawyer or the other side’s insurance company. 

If settlement talks stall, the case moves into the “litigation” phase.

We understand that we cannot settle all pedestrian accident claims out of court. However, in these situations, we can help you file a lawsuit against the party that caused your collision, allowing you to seek damages for all your losses.

How Can a Pedestrian Injury Lawyer Help my Situation?

When putting together a brain injury claim, it’s important to understand what you can ask for in terms of compensation.

Settlement Negotiation

Personal injury claims, including pedestrian injury claims, are often settled before ever filing a lawsuit. If the lawyer thinks that the case can be settled, he/she will make a demand to the other lawyer or the other side’s insurance company. If settlement talks stall the case moves into the “litigation” phase.

Building a case

The litigation phase begins when you file a lawsuit in court. Filing the lawsuit gets the clock running on when the case is likely to go to trial. A lawsuit must be filed within a strict deadline set in law known as the statute of limitations, which is a maximum of 2 years in Connecticut.

Trial Preparation and Representation

If the case proceeds to trial, a pedestrian injury lawyer provides representation in court. Pedestrian injury lawyers such as those at Aeton Law are familiar with court procedures and customs and will ensure that these steps are followed carefully.

The attorneys at Aeton Law Partners have extensive experience in handling the consequences experienced by clients who have been hit by a motor vehicle. To properly understand the damages and compensation that may be available after being hit by a motor vehicle, it is important to contact an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
