Were You or Your Child Hit by a Car?
Motorists have a legal and commonsense duty to watch for pedestrians and to yield the right of way. Of course, it is the pedestrian who pays the price when drivers are careless or reckless. These accidents are extremely traumatic and usually result in serious or permanent injuries.

We excel at holding drivers accountable for negligent operation resulting in serious injury. Our goal is to make you whole for the medical, financial and personal aftermath of an accident.

North Walton County Pedestrian Accident Lawyers
We can recover compensation on behalf of walkers, joggers, schoolchildren, bicyclists and others who were struck by motor vehicles. It is important in these cases to contact an attorney as soon as possible to preserve evidence and talk to any witnesses. We obtain the police report and often visit the scene of the accident. In complex or catastrophic cases, we might hire human factors experts, accident reconstruction experts and other professionals to identify the driver's negligence:
- Failure to yield to pedestrians in a crosswalk accident
- Speeding or aggressive driving
- Pulling out or backing up without looking
- Drifting onto the shoulder
- Distracted driving
- Driving under the influence of alcohol, drugs or prescriptions
We are skilled at countering the defense's version of events. This is especially important when the driver asserts comparative negligence on the part of the victim. In Georgia, if the victim is partly to blame, compensation can be reduced accordingly. If the victim is found to be chiefly to blame, he or she may be entirely barred from recovering damages.
