Shreveport Pedestrian Accident Attorney
Injured as a pedestrian? Call us today at (318) 379-4496!
Car accidents, truck accidents, and motorcycle accidents involving pedestrians
can be extremely devastating and cause serious
personal injury to those involved. When a pedestrian is involved in an accident with a
vehicle, the results are often catastrophic, and are often fatal or cause
permanent injuries. A pedestrian has little to no protection from the
power and force of a vehicle of any sort. If you or a loved one has been
injured in a pedestrian accident, contact an injury attorney from Morris,
Dewett & Savoie, LLC today to discuss your case and your options.
We can assist you to seek compensation for your medical bills and other damages.
Louisiana State Laws on Pedestrian Accidents
In Louisiana, the law states that pedestrians have the right-of-way while
in marked crosswalks and with green lights or walk signals. They also
have the right-of-way over a vehicle making a right turn against a red
light. However, even if the motorist claims it was your fault, all motorists
are supposed to drive defensively and slow down when pedestrians are present.
No matter what the circumstances were, a car is much more powerful and
faster than a human being, and you may have been unable to avoid the accident.
Speaking with a Shreveport personal injury attorney will help you determine
the cause of your accident, and help you seek compensation as the victim
of a pedestrian accident. Most pedestrian accidents occur because a driver
is going too fast to stop in time, or don't see pedestrians because
they are not driving attentively. You deserve to be compensated for your
pain and suffering, especially if you or your loved one suffered a
catastrophic injury and needs ongoing care and treatments as a result of the injuries sustained.
