Pedestrian Accident

Powerful Advocacy for Over 15 Years in the Greater Seattle Area

Lynnwood Pedestrian Accident Attorneys

As dangerous as traffic accidents are for everyone involved, pedestrians are the most vulnerable to serious injuries. When motorists fail to drive with the utmost care, pedestrians can pay the dangerous price. If you or someone you care about is injured in a pedestrian accident, don’t put off consulting with an experienced Lynnwood, Washington, pedestrian accident attorney.

Statistics Showing the Pedestrian Accident Problem

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shares all of the following facts and statistics related to pedestrian accidents:

  • In 2017, there was a pedestrian fatality about every 88 minutes in the United States (a total of nearly 6.000).
  • There were about 137,000 non-fatal pedestrian accidents (requiring emergency treatment) in 2017.
  • Pedestrians are 1.5 times more likely to die in traffic accidents than are the occupants of passenger vehicles.
  • Alcohol is involved in almost half of all pedestrian accidents.
  • Excess speed increases the likelihood that a pedestrian accident will occur and increases the severity of resulting injuries.

Pedestrian accidents happen far too often, and they are exceptionally dangerous.

Driver Negligence

Pedestrian accidents are often caused by driver negligence, which can take many different forms, including:

  • Impairment – The CDC confirms that alcohol plays far too significant a role in pedestrian accidents. Impaired drivers are some of the most dangerous drivers out there.
  • DistractionDrivers who are distracted by anything other than the road ahead simply don’t pay enough attention to pedestrians in their midst. Motorists who are glued to their smartphones are especially dangerous for pedestrians (and everyone else who shares the road with them).
  • Exhaustion – Exhaustion is another form of impairment, and it leaves motorists both less alert and slower to respond, which leaves pedestrians at far greater risk.
  • Excess Speed – When motorists drive at a speed that exceeds the speed limit, or that is unsafe in relation to conditions on the ground, they greatly increase the risk of accidents happening, including the risk of life-threatening pedestrian accidents.

Staying Safe While Walking

When you’re on foot, there is nothing to protect you from the immense impact of a traffic accident. The following basic safety guidelines forwarded by CDC can help you stay safe out there:

  • Always walk on a sidewalk or designated path (rather than on the road itself). If there is no option other than the road, walk facing traffic on the road’s shoulder.
  • If you’re walking at night, wear a piece of reflective clothing and flip on your phone’s flashlight. Other than this usage, however, stay off your phone.
  • Whenever it’s possible to do so, cross the street at designated crosswalks or intersections.

What Our Clients Say

The Napier & George team went above and beyond my expectations to get my case settled. They got me a maximum top dollar settlement. I appreciate the effort by the team. I highly recommend!

Dale W.

Amazing! From the moment I retained Napier & George I breathed a sigh of relief. From that moment on I didn’t have to worry about insurance people calling me trying to rush me into settling early or trying to convince me that I was better. I could focus on me. When I told providers who was representing me they even said you have the best in the business. Quite the contrast in when I told them who my PIP provider was. If you want peace of mind go with Napier & George.

Alexander L.

The firm itself is wonderful. The whole process was seamless from the consultation to the settlement check. The communication was more than enough and I felt like I was apart of the process without the pressure of dealing with it.

Kimberly L.

Everyone on the team was so professional and helpful. It was such a relief to have someone on my side to handle all the details behind the scene so I could focus on getting back to my life at 100%.

They were very friendly, detailed, and stayed in constant communication. Would recommend them and continue to use them.

Y’all took incredible care of me. From dealing with one of the most notoriously difficult and selfish insurance companies known to man, to taking my family out of any future legal proceedings due to some majorly painful life changes, to securing me enough return funds to go back to physical therapy – N&G are incredible and so thoughtful and kind. My endless gratitude goes out to y’all and everyone else in the office too!

Everyone was so great at answering all my questions & guiding me through the process. I did not need to figure things out on my own, I was informed in detail what to do, what was needed & what to expect & to continue focusing on recovering & to leave the rest to the office to handle. Thank you so much!
