If you have been injured in a crosswalk accident, be sure to contact your Vancouver personal injury lawyer. You may not be aware of the rights that you are entitled to if you have been injured in a crosswalk accident. If you were injured in an accident but not within the crosswalk, you may not be at fault for the accident. Discuss your case with your Vancouver personal injury lawyer. Your attorney will most likely be able to determine who was really at fault for the accident. Many times pedestrians who have been injured in an accident, especially if they are not in the crosswalk, are concerned that they may be at fault for the accident. Keep in mind that no matter what, the driver of the vehicle always needs to be aware of their surroundings. That includes any pedestrians in the immediate area that may step out into the street. In some cases, the crosswalk may be something that is implied, even if it is not painted on the ground. This is a law that many drivers, and even pedestrians, are not aware of. There are many laws to protect the pedestrian and if you have been hit by a car, the law is likely on your side. Knowing your rights as a pedestrian is the first step in your personal injury case. Pedestrian accidents are more common than you would think they are. If you have further questions regarding who may be at fault for your pedestrian vs auto accident, watch the video below.
