Northwest Arkansas Car Accident Attorneys recently received a settlement on a personal injury claim that arose out of a pedestrian accident. We represented a 17 year-old girl who was hit by a fellow high school student while walking in a crosswalk. She suffered some soft tissue injuries of the neck, back, leg and elbow. After treating for approximately 4 months, we received a settlement of $17,000.
A Pedestrian being hit in a crosswalk can cause devastating or fatal injuries. Drivers should be extra cautious while approaching crosswalks. It is equally important for pedestrians to stay alert at all times, especially when walking into traffic. Accidents happen, and while you may be able to see a car coming, the driver may not be able to see you. If you have been hit by a driver who was not paying attention, give us a call today to see what we can do to help you.
