Pedestrian Accidents & Catastrophic Injuries

When a pedestrian is hit by a driver, the results are often catastrophic. There’s no protection to keep the pedestrian safe, so they will take the full force of the crash and to awful effect. If you’ve been severely injured in a pedestrian accident on the streets of Oxford, then you should work with a law firm as dedicated to your successful recovery as Mama Justice.

Let us know if you suffered any of these severe injuries:

  • Broken bones
  • Brain injury
  • Spine injury
  • Disfigurement

Thanks to our decades of collective legal experience and eclectic backgrounds, our attorneys are able to better understand and appreciate your injuries and how they have impacted your day-to-day life and foreseeable future. The goal is to show the true extent of your injuries and maximize the value of your claim’s damages. Not only will we fight for lost wages and medical bills on your behalf, but we can also challenge the insurance company to pay you for your pain, suffering, disability, and hardship.

Is a Pedestrian Ever Liable for a Pedestrian Accident?

Although you might be confident that your pedestrian accident was caused by the driver’s negligence, your word alone might not be enough to build a strong injury claim. The truth is that pedestrians can and often are found liable for pedestrian accidents, at least partially. In Mississippi, the state’s pure comparative negligence rules will reduce your recovery amount by a percentage equal to your liability, so keeping your liability down is a must.

Pedestrians can be found liable for a pedestrian accident if they:

  • Enter a crosswalk while it displays a “do not walk” sign
  • Cross the road without a crosswalk but there was a crosswalk available
  • Step into the road suddenly and from behind an obstruction, like a large vehicle
  • Walk where pedestrians are strictly prohibited, like certain highways and construction areas

However, in all of the previously mentioned scenarios, drivers still need to make a reasonable attempt to yield to the pedestrian to avoid an accident. If a driver hit you when you were jaywalking, but they reasonably had time to see you and come to a stop, then they could still be found mostly or entirely liable for the accident. Don’t assume that you don’t have a case just because the driver’s insurance company said you didn’t. Don’t you listen to them – listen to Mama Justice instead!
