In congested cities like Washington, DC, Alexandria, Woodbridge, Arlington, and more crossing the street can be difficult, and even dangerous. A person can be struck by a vehicle while walking with the pedestrian light, and within the crosswalk. Often, these incidents are caused by speeding drivers, drivers trying to run the light, drivers turning while not looking out for pedestrians, and drivers using their cell phones instead of watching the road. While you as a pedestrian have a duty to cross the street safely and properly, motorists always have a duty to look out for pedestrians, and to yield accordingly.
Being injured as a pedestrian is very traumatic, and can result in very severe injuries - and some of those injuries could be life threatening. It is very important to have an experienced accident lawyer working for you, so that you can focus on what is most important - getting well, and getting back to how you lived your life before the accident.
