Ideally, cars and pedestrians should be able to safely share the road so that both parties can get where they need to go. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case. Although you might think that the driver is always considered to be completely at fault for an accident with a pedestrian, sometimes the walker can be at fault as well if they acted negligently.

If you’ve been hurt in an accident that was someone else’s fault, then you deserve justice. An attorney from Pittman Roberts & Welsh, PLLC will investigate what happened and prove that the other party was at fault for your injuries and damages.
