Our office has represented victims who were hit while crossing the street in a crosswalk. These accidents are often caused by drivers who are negligent and fail to pay attention to the crosswalk or are distracted by something else.
Struck by Vehicle in Crosswalk
If you or your loved one was crossing the street with the right of way, within the crosswalk, the accident is the driver’s fault. Oftentimes accidents like this result in injury of the pedestrian while the motorist suffers minimal or no damage.
