Pocatello Pedestrian Accident Lawyers

Speak to an Attorney About Your Case Today

Pedestrian accidents are devastating. Victims tend to sustain severe, sometimes life-altering injuries, affecting nearly every aspect of their lives. While nothing can undo what you have been through, Idaho law provides a number of protections for pedestrians. This means that if you were hit by a car or another motor vehicle while on foot, you likely have grounds to file a personal injury claim and seek compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.

While you may be entitled to receive compensation, actually securing a settlement can be difficult. Insurance companies will often do everything they can to dispute or deny valid claims. It’s important that you work with an experienced attorney who can help you fight back against insurance companies’ tactics.

At Lowe Law Firm, we are ready to advocate tirelessly for you. Our Pocatello pedestrian accident lawyers have extensive experience and a proven record of success in these types of cases. We have recovered millions of dollars for our clients, and we take pride in celebrating our clients’ victories. We believe that our success is your success. Our team genuinely cares about helping you get back on your feet; we will handle everything from start to finish so that you can focus on healing.

Idaho Pedestrian Laws

While operators of cars and other large, heavy motor vehicles, such as motorcycles and trucks, have a responsibility to do everything possible to avoid hitting pedestrians, pedestrians are also required to follow all state laws. Not only does this help keep pedestrians safe, but it also protects others on the road and reduces tragic, preventable accidents.

Below are some Idaho pedestrian laws everyone should know:

  • Motorists are required to yield the right-of-way to pedestrians in crosswalks, including when there are no traffic signals in place/in operation. This is true in both marked and unmarked crosswalks.
  • Pedestrians are required to wait for “walk” signals and follow all other traffic control devices when crossing at intersections. When there is no traffic control device, motorists must yield to pedestrians waiting to cross.
  • People should NEVER walk along highways or similar roadways that do not have a designated walkway. It is extremely dangerous and illegal. Additionally, pedestrians may never stand on highways in Idaho.
  • In Idaho, pedestrians are not allowed to stand or walk along highways in order to solicit employment or a business or to solicit a ride from a motorist (commonly known as “hitchhiking”).
  • Jaywalking, or crossing a street where there is no intersection/crosswalk, is illegal in the state of Idaho.

By following these and other rules of the road, both pedestrians and motorists can ensure their own safety, as well as the safety of those around them.

Can I Recover Compensation If I Was Partially at Fault?

While you may have heard the phrase, “the pedestrian always has the right-of-way,” this is not necessarily true. As the laws outlined above demonstrate, pedestrians are required to follow certain rules when crossing streets or walking alongside roadways. While motorists should always do everything they can to avoid hitting a person on foot, they may not be entirely at fault for an accident if the pedestrian was doing something illegal, such as jaywalking.

Because Idaho follows a comparative negligence doctrine, being partially at fault for a pedestrian accident does not bar you from recovering compensation. In fact, as long as you were less at fault than the motorist who hit you (e.g., less than 50% at fault for the accident), you may still seek compensation. Your total recovery will be reduced by whatever percentage of fault you are assigned by a jury.

Our Team Is Ready to Advocate for You

At Lowe Law Firm, we understand the immense impact pedestrian accidents have on victims and their families. While pedestrians are required to follow all applicable laws, the fact is, most pedestrian accidents happen not because of the pedestrian’s negligence but because of the careless or reckless actions of a motorist. Our Pocatello pedestrian accident lawyers believe that negligent motorists should be held accountable, which is why we always seek to maximize our clients’ recoveries.

When you turn to Lowe Law Firm, you get an entire team of legal professionals, medical experts, accident reconstructionists, and other specialists all working for you. We truly care about you and your future and will provide caring, compassionate, and personalized legal guidance from start to finish.
