Leesburg Pedestrian Accident Attorney

Pursuing fair compensation for Virginians struck by motor vehicles

When a car hits a pedestrian, it’s the pedestrian that suffers. However, that doesn’t mean it’s easy for the injured pedestrian to collect damages. There are obstacles in the law and in the unwillingness of insurance companies to settle claims reasonably. But Simms Showers LLP is prepared to help. Our Leesburg pedestrian accident attorneys have extensive trial and settlement experience and are determined to get justice for you by pursuing the maximum compensation possible.

Experience with a variety of accident scenarios and injuries

Although most people think of children or the elderly as most likely to be struck by vehicles, in Virginia most pedestrian accident victims are aged 21 to 50. Pedestrian accidents can occur at busy intersections in broad daylight or dark roadways late at night. Pedestrians should take precautions to avoid being hit, but aggressive, drunken or distracted driving can claim even the most cautious persons as victims. As with auto accidents, evidence gathered at the scene can be crucial, and witness testimony, especially in hit-and-run accidents, can make a huge difference in the outcome of your case. Unfortunately, pedestrians often sustain serious personal injuries in traffic accidents, including broken bones, skull fractures, traumatic brain injury, spinal injuries and wrongful death. Individuals who are severely injured are in no position to piece together their legal claim, which is why it is vitally important to retain an experienced personal injury attorney.

Virginia’s contributory negligence law can bar your recovery

Virginia’s contributory negligence law prevents injured parties from collecting any compensation if they are even one percent responsible for the accident. Courts often find that pedestrians contributed to their own injuries by jaywalking, darting out into traffic, walking while texting or making poor judgments due to intoxication. Insurance companies use the contributory negligence law ruthlessly to deny recovery to injured pedestrians. That’s why, if you’ve been hurt while walking in traffic in Virginia, you need an experienced attorney arguing your case.
