Crosswalk Accidents in Oregon City
Pedestrians have the right of way in crosswalks and motorists must stop when approaching pedestrians crossing in their lane of travel. When a motorist fails to stop or a pedestrian or bicyclist enters a crosswalk without looking carefully for oncoming traffic, a collision can occur and result in injuries to the pedestrian, the driver, and the driver’s passengers. Sometimes, other cars can be involved in this type of accident as well.
If you have suffered from a pedestrian injury, you could have grounds for a personal injury claim. A personal injury claim requires interaction with the negligent party’s insurance provider as well as your own. This is why it is important to work with an experienced insurance lawyer to pursue the compensation you need to cover your expenses related to your injury. These might include expenses like medical bills, the need for help with mobility and personal errands as you recover, lost wages due to having to spend time out of work, and any miscellaneous needs like bandages, over the counter pain medication, and psychological counseling to help you work through emotional trauma following the accident.
