Tennessee Pedestrian Accident Lawyers Ready to Fight for You
Pedestrians might not think about it, but they face serious risk of injury or death every time they are out walking or jogging in Tennessee. While many pedestrians never experience what it’s like to be hit by a moving vehicle, those who are hit by a car or truck often face traumatic, life-altering injuries. Pedestrians involved in car accidents sometimes die, which may be grounds for a wrongful death lawsuit. To make matters worse, oftentimes these pedestrians are lawfully crossing an intersection, obeying traffic signals at a crosswalk, or simply walking back to their car through a parking lot.

Accidents often occur when drivers fail to see pedestrians or observe the right of way at crosswalks, intersections, and in parking lots. In many cases, drivers might take their eyes off the road or be unable to stop their vehicles in time. In some pedestrian accidents, a driver might be speeding, driving under the influence of alcohol, or texting while driving. In other accidents, a driver might choose to flee the scene of an accident, leading to a serious hit-and-run accident.
