Experienced Oklahoma Lawyers Protect Pedestrians When Accidents Happen

Injury attorneys advocate for pedestrian rights

Pedestrian accidents are far too common in the United States. Thousands of people are seriously injured in such accidents, including hit-and-runs, every year, and too many of those cases become fatal. At Stipe Law Firm, we commit ourselves to securing your family’s future by representing you in pedestrian accident cases and securing for you the compensation to which you’re entitled.

Common causes of pedestrian accidents

Pedestrian accidents don’t fit one particular mold. They can occur in the street, on the sidewalk, in the parking lot, at railroad crossings or while exiting a bus. In all cases, however, drivers have a responsibility to preserve pedestrian safety.

There are many causes of pedestrian accidents. Some of these are the fault of the driver, including drunkenness, speeding, distraction, failure to observe crosswalks, failure to use turn signals and more. Others result from poor visibility, defective vehicles, poorly designed intersections or defective traffic signals. No matter what, as a pedestrian, it is your responsibility to adhere to the following practices:

  • Cross inside of crosswalks
  • Obey traffic signals
  • Avoid entering moving traffic
  • Avoid rushing onto the road

However, drivers are usually held at least partially responsible for the accident. The personal injury lawyers at Stipe Law Firm work to make sure that as a victim, you don’t bear the burden of medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering.

Personal injury lawyers who work tirelessly to get you the compensation you deserve

Depending on how the accident happens, our Oklahoma injury lawyers identify the appropriate party who acted negligently and hold that party — drivers, employers of drivers, vehicle manufacturers, government entities or more — accountable. Whether at the negotiating table or in the Oklahoma courts, we commit to getting you the maximum compensation to cover all expenses and emotional trauma caused by pedestrian accidents.

Being a victim in an accident is frightening, and it can be difficult to stay on top of all of the responsibilities you have while recovering. Personal injury is one of our primary areas of practice, and we’re here to serve you. Visit our personal injury overview page to learn more.
