Pedestrian Accident Lawyers in Ogden

Claims & Lawsuits After Being Struck by a Negligent Driver

According to information gathered by multiple safety organizations, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), approximately 5,000 pedestrians will be struck by motorists and suffer fatal injuries in America each year. Roughly 125,000 more will be hit and suffer moderate to severe injuries. While pedestrian safety awareness campaigns help spread awareness to otherwise negligent and distracted drivers, it is sometimes most effective to drive a point home with a personal injury claim in pursuit of compensation.

If you have been struck by a motorist while you were walking down the sidewalk or crossing the street, Lowe Law Group and our Ogden pedestrian accident attorneys are here to help. We are well-versed in the behaviors of insurance companies that spring to the defense of their finances, attempting to do everything possible to put liability for the accident on your shoulders. Our goal is dismantling their arguments, maximizing your compensation, and helping you get back on your feet again financially and literally.

Utah Pedestrian Laws

Pedestrian laws in Utah are designed to ensure safety and the smooth flow of traffic. At marked crosswalks, pedestrians have the right-of-way, and drivers must yield to them. This right-of-way also applies at intersections without marked crosswalks. Pedestrians are encouraged to use marked crosswalks or cross at intersections whenever possible, as jaywalking can be illegal in certain situations. Additionally, pedestrians must obey traffic control signals such as "Walk" and "Don't Walk" signs, and crossing against these signals is a violation. They are also required to exercise due care when crossing the road, avoiding sudden movements into the path of oncoming vehicles.

When sidewalks are not available, pedestrians should walk on the left side of the roadway or shoulder, facing oncoming traffic. Soliciting rides from drivers while standing in the roadway is illegal. Drivers, on their part, must yield to pedestrians in crosswalks and take necessary precautions to avoid collisions, even if the pedestrian is violating traffic rules. They are also prohibited from overtaking and passing vehicles that have stopped at a crosswalk to allow pedestrians to cross.

Pedestrian control signals play a crucial role in ensuring safety. Pedestrians facing a "Walk" signal may proceed across the roadway in the direction of the signal. However, those facing a "Don't Walk" or upraised hand symbol must not start to cross but can finish crossing if they are already in the intersection when the signal changes.

Special considerations apply in certain areas, such as school zones, where reduced speed limits and heightened caution are required to protect children. Drivers must be especially vigilant and yield to pedestrians in these zones. Additionally, when pedestrian bridges or tunnels are available, pedestrians are expected to use these facilities instead of crossing the roadway.

Pinpointing Liability in Pedestrian Accidents

Motorists who cause pedestrian accidents often try to place all blame on the pedestrian, claiming that he or she jumped out in front of the vehicle, jaywalked, or strayed into oncoming traffic. After thorough investigations, including the analysis of evidence and the review of eyewitness testimonies, our Ogden pedestrian injury lawyers almost-invariably discover that all liability should be placed on the driver. Not only do pedestrians maintain the right-of-way in the majority of traffic situations, but drivers who engage in negligent or reckless behavior for only a brief second jeopardize the health of pedestrians nearby.

We may be able to find that the driver that struck you was:

Going through the typical investigation process and attempting to use what you find in a logical case argument can be stressful and complex, especially if you should be focusing on your own wellbeing and recuperation instead. When you retain the services of our legal team, you can place all of those responsibilities on us and know that they will be accomplished.
