Drivers are obligated to yield to pedestrians at crossings and drive with caution wherever foot traffic occurs. Unfortunately, there are many drivers who disregard their duty to safety when pedestrians are around, resulting in injuries and even fatalities.
At May, Rammell & Wells, we are committed to holding car and truck drivers accountable for their negligence and reckless actions. With more than 70 years of combined experience, our Pocatello pedestrian accident lawyers have a thorough understanding of Idaho driving laws to guide you through the legal process in a proper manner. Let us fight for you while you make a successful recovery from injury.
While drivers are protected, pedestrians often suffer catastrophic or permanent injuries, such as spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and broken bones. When the accident involves an uninsured driver or a hit-and-run, then the problems associated with recovering compensation for your injuries are much worse. However, with the legal assistance of a personal injury lawyer, you will have someone on your side to investigate the accident and relentlessly pursue damages to cover medical bills, loss of income, as well as pain and suffering.
In most cases, there is a disagreement about who was at fault. The driver may claim the victim jaywalked or crossed the intersection without obeying the signs and traffic signals. Our Pocatello injury attorney understand what it takes to get the results you want and your life back on track.
