Injured in a pedestrian accident? Know your full range of legal options.

When you're walking on the sidewalk, on the side of the road or crossing the road, you're probably very aware of any ongoing traffic. Sadly, not everyone operating a motor vehicle will be as aware of you. Some people decide to drive while intoxicated, distracted or otherwise incapacitated, putting pedestrians at unnecessary risk.
