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.

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 personal 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:
- Texting and driving
- Eating or drinking
- Exhausted or sleeping
- Applying makeup
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.
