Injured Pedestrians Can Face an Uphill Battle
Milwaukee Pedestrian Accident Attorneys

Identifying the Causes of Pedestrian Accidents
Drivers must never forget that the size and weight of their vehicles makes them extremely dangerous to pedestrians, even at relatively low speeds. Drivers can and do cause catastrophic, all-too-often fatal accidents through negligent actions such as the following:
- Failing to stop at a crosswalk
- Failing to stop for a pedestrian at a corner
- Driving up onto the sidewalk
- Swerving onto the shoulder
Cars and trucks always need to stop for pedestrians who have the right of way. But even when pedestrians are jaywalking, that is no excuse for drivers to hit them. In both cases, drivers who do not take reasonable steps to avoid accidents can be held accountable.
Making Sure You Get What You Are Entitled To
If you have been hit by a car, you should not agree to an insurance settlement until someone with your interests at heart has conducted a thorough investigation. At Aiken & Scoptur, S.C., we work with credible expert professionals to investigate and document pedestrian accident cases.
Our attorneys are dedicated to getting clients the full compensation they deserve. We take all personal injury cases on contingency, so you will not pay us a fee unless we help you obtain money damages. To discuss your case with an experienced trial lawyer, contact us today.
