If you have been injured in a pedestrian accident in Decatur by no fault of your own, you deserve compensation for your injuries. Contact the Decatur pedestrian accident attorneys at Mama Justice today for a free consultation.

A pedestrian’s life can be changed forever after being hit by a car or truck. Along with learning to cope with crippling emotional trauma and serious physical injuries, you will almost certainly be expected to pay exorbitant medical bills even though you are unable to work. Additionally, the stress caused by the accident will be compounded by aggressive insurance adjusters that will do anything in their power to deny you the fair compensation you deserve for your injuries.

Alabama is different from almost every other state in that, in most cases, it gives the right of way to automobiles rather than pedestrians. This makes it essential for you to work with an experienced Decatur pedestrian accident attorney who understands the law and can effectively oppose the insurance company’s claims that you were at fault.

Here at MW Law – Mama Justice, our dedicated personal injury lawyers have an impressive track record of successfully seeking compensation for pedestrian accident victims following their accidents.

Pedestrian Accident Statistics

Despite some bold nationwide efforts to make communities safer for pedestrians, the fatality rates remain high. In 2018, the number of pedestrians killed in car accidents rose by almost 4% for a total of 6,283 deaths. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, this is the highest pedestrian fatality rate the United States has seen since 1990.

In Alabama, pedestrian fatalities rose by 60% between 2008 and 2019. The counties with the highest percentages of fatal pedestrian accidents in the state were Mobile, Jefferson, and Montgomery. Pedestrian deaths tend to happen more frequently at night due to poor visibility, but anytime you are near a road, you are at risk of being hit by a car.
