Pedestrians fall victim to injuries every day due to dangerous, distracted drivers and/or property defects. Usually, these types of accidents occur while pedestrians are walking, running or on the sidewalk. After the accident, it can be difficult to figure out who is liable for your injury. If you’ve been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to a substantial amount of money. Hiring a lawyer can simplify the process and make the difference in whether you get a fair accident settlement.
