Being a pedestrian in Seattle and other cities across the nation is fairly common. Whether one is walking from a parked car to an establishment or is walking by foot from one destination to the next, the reality of the matter is that pedestrians are frequently walking next to traffic. While many motorists are attentive to pedestrians in the area, when a driver fails to drive safely where pedestrians are walking, this could result in a serious and even fatal accident.
Pedestrian accidents are often tragic, as a person cannot withstand the size, weight and speed of a motor vehicle. Even when a vehicle is slow moving, the impact from a collision can be catastrophic. At the Law offices of Matthew D. Dubin, our skilled legal team has worked on a wide variety of pedestrian accidents. We have experience investigating these matters, uncovering the cause and proving liability.
Whether a motorist failed to stop, was driving too fast, failed to look both ways, did not use mirrors and check surroundings when backing up or was driving distracted or intoxicated, our law firm takes the time to fully understand what happened. This means conducting our own investigation, talking with witnesses and even consulting with experts. Our goal is to paint an accurate picture, helping our clients become whole again after suffering injuries and damages.
