Pedestrian accidents are often complex personal injury or wrongful death matters that involve a variety of factors. That's why many injured individuals and families who lost loved ones in serious accidents turn to Vishno Law Firm for skilled legal counsel. Attorney Jeremy Vishno, a Fairfield County pedestrian accident lawyer, puts experience and resources to work to get the results victims and families need. He knows what is at stake when you or a loved one is facing a serious condition, such as a traumatic brain injury or some other debilitating injury.
In many instances, a pedestrian or bicyclist may have done nothing to cause their accident. You might be legally crossing the street, walking on a sidewalk or traveling in a bike lane at the time of their accident. The driver who hit you may claim he or she "failed to see" you or cite weather conditions for causing the crash.
But pedestrian accident cases are rarely this straightforward. Often, serious pedestrian accidents on Washington Boulevard in Stamford, Park Avenue in Bridgeport and across Fairfield County can be traced back to a number of factors, including:
Distracted drivers: They might be fiddling with a gadget or daydreaming when they strike a pedestrian.
Reckless driving: They might be making a sudden lane change that forces another car to swerve and strike a pedestrian.
Drunk driving: Impaired drivers are a major factor in pedestrian accidents.
Vehicle defects: A car with a defect, such as a bad tire, can have deadly consequences for a pedestrian
