Pedestrian accident lawyers in Alaska
The carelessness of a driver and his inattentiveness to the presence of pedestrians can cause accidents and serious injuries, or even death. Even after the pedestrians take precautions and are aware of the surrounding accidents do take place. Some pedestrian accidents happen when a person is being hit by a vehicle while crossing the road or a car bumping into a pedestrian. If we disclose the number of accidents annually, it accounts for approximately 70,000 injuries and 5000 deaths.
If you find yourself in a similar situation or know someone who does, at TrialGuy, we completely understand your situation and are there to listen to you and help you.
Contact us at 907-262-9164, our experienced attorney, Eric Derleth in Anchorage, Alaska, Soldotna, Denali, Kenai today, to learn more about how we can help you.
How do pedestrian accidents happen?
All licensed drivers in Alaska are supposed to obey the traffic rules and apply reasonable care while driving a vehicle for sharing a road with other drivers. If the driver fails to exercise such proper care and does not abide by the traffic norms, they can be held liable for the accident and injuries suffered by the pedestrians.
Following are the common reasons why pedestrian accidents take place in Alaska:-
- Inattentive driver
- Intoxicated driver
- Reckless driving
- Driver not obeying traffic signals and signs.
After the accident, many drivers tend to believe that pedestrians were at fault, especially if the pedestrian is seen or assumed to be texting while walking or crossing the road. It is very complicated to determine liability in pedestrian accident cases; therefore, it becomes essential to hire an experienced lawyer to investigate this and help you claim your legal right.
Damages that can be recovered after the pedestrian accident
Pedestrians on foot are in no comparison with multi-ton vehicles. Even if a bicyclist hits them, sometimes they suffer serious injuries. At TrialGuy, we have helped our pedestrian accident clients to recover and receive compensation including but not limited to:-

Consult us before consulting the insurance company
You may not even realize that you are negatively impacting your claim by talking to the insurance company before talking to a lawyer. If you go to the insurance company, they might take a recorded statement from you or make you sign some papers or get you checked by the doctors, which is not a good sign in your case. Our experienced lawyers are accustomed to dealing with such insurance companies and know how to get the maximum claim of your insurance out of them. We make sure you deserve what you get and not less than that.
Our attorney will collect all the evidence related to your pedestrian accident case, provide a timeline, collect all the relevant medical records of you, and then file a strong litigation case. You cannot just expect the insurance company to settle your claim fairly unless you present a credible threat of litigation. Since evidence can easily be destroyed, you should contact our attorneys as soon as possible after your accident.
