Careless drivers hit walkers, runners, and other pedestrians every day in this country. These accidents happen because drivers do not follow the rules of the road, including by driving too fast; becoming distracted; or otherwise failing to pay attention. Instead of focusing on driving, careless drivers talk on the phone; check text messages; and become distracted by passengers. When that happens, the consequences for walkers, runners, and bicyclists are often catastrophic. Because they often suffer serious and permanent injuries, these victims should be represented by a skilled pedestrian accident lawyer who will fight for their rights.
If you have been seriously injured in a pedestrian accident, contact a Utah pedestrian accident lawyer immediately to protect your rights. Time matters. Insurance companies know you are in a vulnerable position and often seek to take advantage of that fact. They may attempt to interview you to secure admissions helpful to their case or they may persuade you accept a quick, lowball settlement offer before you are able to retain an attorney. An experienced Utah personal injury attorney will protect you against these insurance company tactics, among many others, and ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve.
