Seattle residents will attest that there are numerous benefits to living in a walkable city. Getting around on foot is not only healthy for pedestrians but it helps reduce the vehicles on the road and can be more cost efficient for the individual. Despite the benefits, there are setbacks and risks.

Walking near traffic poses a great risk to pedestrians, as it increases the chances of a vehicle striking a pedestrian. Whether a pedestrian is walking on a sidewalk, crosswalk or parking lot, there is always the risk of a negligent driver hitting them.

At Dubin Law Group, our attorneys have seen first-hand the injuries and damages suffered after an individual was struck by a motor vehicle.

When pursuing a personal injury claim or a wrongful death suit for a deceased loved one, it is important to understand what it entails and the compensation you could be awarded.

When moving forward with a civil action, negligence and liability needs to be proven. With a prompt investigation and preservation of evidence, our law firm seeks to illustrate that the driver was negligent, and their negligence resulting in the harm suffered by our client.

Whether the driver failed to yield to the right of way, violated traffic laws, was driving distracted or failed to take proper caution, our attorneys not only focus on the negligence of the driver but also the conduct of our clients. We seek to evidence that you were acting safely and were legally walking where the accident took place.

Pedestrian accidents can have tragic and long-lasting impacts. It is important to understand your rights when it comes to filing a civil suit, and understand your options to recover compensation for your losses and damages.
