Proving Negligence in a Pedestrian Accident

To recover damages for an accident that was caused by a property defect or motor vehicle collision, the victim must prove negligence (the defendant’s failure to meet a standard of care, thus resulting in the accident).

A lawyer at our office can review your case to prove the following when you make a claim:

  • The defendant owed a legal duty to you as the pedestrian
  • The defendant failed to fulfill the duty owed to you
  • The defendant’s failure caused the pedestrian accident
  • The defendant’s failure caused injury or harm to you

Examples of acts of driver negligence that can lead to pedestrian accidents include:

  • Failure to signal while turning
  • Failure to obey traffic signs and / or signals
  • Driving inattentively and / or while pre-occupied
  • Failure to observe and adhere to posted speed limits
  • Failure to adapt driving behavior to weather and / or traffic conditions
  • Failure to yield the right of way to the pedestrian at a marked crosswalk

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT ATTORNEY PHIL BERENZ

"There are all kinds of reasons why you might need a lawyer at some point(s) in your life. Whatever the reason, what you want is someone that understands you, advises you properly (hey, our emotions can override our intellect), works hard on your behalf and is willing to go the distance. Phil Berenz is just this kind of lawyer. I had a situation where I needed the assistance of a lawyer and fortunately he was recommended to me. Phil can walk that delicate line of completely understanding --feeling your pain--to giving you the best advice based on his experience. Some lawyers may tell you what you want to hear to run up your fees. Not Phil.
He's a top-notch negotiator and has the patience to build relationships with the opposing side to gain the best benefit for the client. He is very skillful at understanding the psyche of the other parties.
I could go on and on, but basically what I want to say -- if you need a lawyer, call Phil. If he doesn't have the expertise that you require, he'll recommend you to someone that does and you can be sure they will be of a high calibre too."
