Des Moines Personal Injury Attorney

Des Moines Pedestrian Accidents Attorney

We all remember our parents telling us to "look both ways" before crossing the street.  That's because streets and highways, and the vehicles driving on them, pose a significant threat to the unwary pedestrian.  Sometimes though, "look both ways" just isn't enough.  Often pedestrians feel confident they can make it safely across the street, only to be struck down by an oncoming vehicle they thought was a safe distance away.  Other times they are certain the oncoming vehicle has seen them and is slowing down, only to be proven horribly wrong.  Understandably, motor vehicle collisions involving pedestrians often result in horrible injury to the pedestrian.

Insurance companies have an easy defense in cases such as this: Roads are made for cars to drive on - not for people to walk in - and therefore the pedestrian must be to blame.  This is often not the case.  Often the driver of the vehicle could have done much, much more to avoid the collision, and failed to do so.  Pedestrians injured by vehicles need attorneys who know how to defend their rights and make sure the insurance company does not take advantage of people's assumption that "roads are for driving, not walking."
