Pedestrian Accidents


Although the rules of Texas roadways are designed to keep pedestrians and drivers in their designated areas, sometimes their paths cross and significant harm can befall a pedestrian. When this happens, and you are injured by a negligent driver, you are entitled to financial compensation.

The expenses associated with an accident can pile up rapidly. Between medical bills, prescriptions, and loss of wages you could face significant financial hardship following an accident. Accordingly, you will need a Dallas pedestrian accident lawyer who will file a claim on your behalf. At The Law Office of T. Christopher Lewis, we will work to prepare, research, and fight to get you the compensation that you deserve.

In civil law and to successfully pursue an accident claim, you must be in a position to prove that the driver was negligent. Additionally, your case must also show that the negligence was the cause of your injury and loss. To establish negligence, you will need the knowledge and resources of an experienced Texas pedestrian accident lawyer.

The law dictates that a driver has a duty of care to all road users. That driver must abide by the rules and traffic law as he or she operates a motor vehicle on the road. When there is a breach of a duty of care, rules or law broken, negligence can be established. To prove this negligence your lawyer will rely on the following:

  • Documentary evidence that can be in the form of videos and reports from law enforcement;
  • Evidence from eyewitnesses who can testify to how the accident occurred;
  • The footage from surveillance videos located at the scene of the collision;
  • The victim’s account of what transpired; and
  • Any report generated from a reconstructionist or private investigators.

Most of the above evidence can be technical and difficult to obtain. But you can rely on the professional experience and in-depth knowledge of a Texas personal injury lawyer.

Once your attorney has established the driver’s negligence, the next step in a personal injury claim is calculating compensation for damage and loss. There are many different categories of compensation that is allowed by the law. Each type of award carries specific rules in calculating and coming to a figure that both sides can agree to can be a difficult process.

As a victim of a pedestrian accident, you may be entitled to the following types of compensation:

  • Medical expenses, inclusive of bills associated with medical treatment already received and for future medical expenses.
  • Loss of wages, inclusive of current and future loss of income as a result of injuries.
  • Pain and suffering, which is a figure to compensate for the physical and emotional pain that you may experience.

Compensation will vary in each case, and many factors are used to arrive at a calculation. It is important to have a personal injury lawyer on your side who will defend your right to a compensation commensurate with your loss and damage.

A friend of mine recommended Mr. Lewis. I met with him immediately and he carefully explained what would take place and what to expect in great detail. He reassured me that he could help, and although I had my doubts, he took action quickly and aggressively. Eventually, my charges dropped. I would definitely recommend his services to anyone I know.
