Distracted driving, inattentive driving and speeding are common causes of pedestrian accidents. With more and more drivers talking on a cellphone while driving — or more dangerously, texting while driving — it seems as though the number of pedestrian and crosswalk accidents is growing.
At Hill Law Office, we represent pedestrians who have been struck by a motor vehicle while walking, running, biking or simply crossing the street.

What To Do If You Have Been Injured In A Pedestrian Accident
If you or someone close to you has been injured by a car or other vehicle, you should do the following:
- Take photos of the accident scene and any visible injuries.
- Gather contact information from all witnesses (especially if this was a hit-and-run accident — someone may have noted the license plate number or other identifiable information).
- Get evaluated by a doctor.
