In 2010 there were an estimated 70,000 pedestrian injuries reported. Pedestrians represent more than 13% of crash fatalities. Pedestrians are injured every day from vehicle accidents. Here at the Charles Boyk Law Offices, our Maumee pedestrian accident attorneys are experienced in representing those victims that were injured as the result of a pedestrian accident.
Many pedestrian accidents happen as the victims are traveling in a public crosswalk. A driver may fail to see them or they are not paying close attention to whether someone is in the crosswalk or not. When injured as a pedestrian, it is important to remember that you have rights.
If you have suffered an injury as the result of a Maumee, Ohio crosswalk accident and it was not your fault, you have the right to file a personal injury claim against the at-fault party. Filing a personal injury claims means that you are seeking compensation for the damages caused from the accident, including medical bills, pain and suffering, disability and scarring or permanent disfigurement.
