Understanding Pedestrian Accidents: How SELPH LAW Protects Your Rights

Pedestrian accidents can happen in the blink of an eye but leave lasting impacts on those involved. As roads become busier and distractions more prevalent, pedestrians face increased risks. Whether crossing a street, walking on a sidewalk, or moving through a parking lot, the safety of pedestrians can be compromised by various factors. At SELPH LAW, we specialize in representing individuals involved in pedestrian accidents, helping them navigate the complexities of legal recovery while focusing on their physical and emotional healing.

The Rise of Pedestrian Accidents

Recent years have seen a troubling rise in pedestrian accidents across the country, including Ohio. Factors contributing to this increase include distracted driving, speeding, and failing to yield the right of way. Pedestrians struck by vehicles suffer injuries ranging from minor to catastrophic, significantly impacting their quality of life. In the worst cases, these accidents can be fatal, leaving families to cope with the loss of a loved one.

Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents
Distracted Driving: Texting, using a phone, or other distractions can lead to drivers not noticing pedestrians.
Speeding: Higher speeds make it harder for drivers to stop in time to avoid hitting a pedestrian.
Failing to Yield: Drivers who do not yield the right of way at crosswalks pose a significant risk to pedestrians.
Impaired Driving: Alcohol or drugs impair a driver’s ability to react to pedestrians.

Legal Rights and Compensation

Pedestrians involved in accidents may face a long road to recovery, dealing with medical bills, lost wages, and emotional trauma. Ohio law provides avenues for injured pedestrians to seek compensation for these damages. However, navigating the legal system can be daunting without experienced legal representation.
