We Fight for Your Rights After a Pedestrian Accident

Pedestrian accidents happen in several ways and result from negligent actions caused by drivers or pedestrians. Pedestrians have the right-of-way at specific locations and have a duty to follow the laws that apply to them. However, motorists are the majority cause of accidents involving pedestrians.

Drivers typically cause pedestrian accidents and subsequent injuries by:

  • Going through an intersection without looking or stopping
  • Driving faster than the posted speed limit
  • Illegally driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Engaging in distracted driving
  • Not following traffic rules and signals
  • Reckless or road rage driving

Pedestrians have the same civil right to use public roadways as motorists. Like many states, Texas drivers hold a duty to exercise reasonable care toward pedestrians at a crosswalk and while they are crossing streets. If drivers are negligent and cause an accident, you have the right to file an insurance claim or civil lawsuit to seek an award for injuries suffered in an accident.

Our pedestrian accident attorneys in Houston can help you investigate the circumstances surrounding the accident you or your family member experienced and present our findings to the insurance company. If you do not get the award you deserve, The Law Offices of Omar Khawaja will take your case to trial if necessary.

Liability Affects the Outcome of Your Case

If someone else caused the pedestrian accident in which you were injured, the most crucial step you can take toward a fair settlement is to prove that the at-fault driver was negligent and therefore liable for your damages or financial losses. 

Liability in pedestrian accident cases is challenging to prove alone, which is why you may want to hire a Houston pedestrian accident attorney. Our legal team will devote the requisite resources and time to help you prove fault and recover the damages you deserve.

Determining Liability

Determining liability in a pedestrian accident case happens in a few stages. 

The first stage occurs after the accident, when the police arrive and issue an accident report, including the person they believe to be the negligent party. However, the accident report is not the final word when it comes to proving fault. If the at-fault party contests the outcome, then it is imperative that you work with a pedestrian accident lawyer to strengthen your side of the story.

You Deserve Maximum Compensation

Once you receive care for your injuries, you need to focus your attention on your personal injury claim. It is critical that you get compensation for both your economic and non-economic losses, but that may require unique resources. Your Houston pedestrian accident attorney from The Law Offices of Omar Khawaja will guide you through a proposed case strategy at no upfront cost to you.

Our legal team will help you go after an award that pays for:

  • Past, current, and future medical costs related to your accident
  • Lost work wages and benefits for the time you missed at work to receive medical care
  • Lost future earning capacity and benefits if you are unable to return to work again
  • Physical pain and suffering, emotional distress, and mental anguish
  • Wrongful death and survival action awards for surviving family members
  • Punitive damages for cases involving gross acts of negligence
  • And other awards as recoverable by Texas personal injury laws

The above-referenced list of compensation types depends upon the facts, circumstances, and discoverable evidence of your case. However, a Houston pedestrian accident lawyer at The Law Offices of Omar Khawaja will conduct a thorough and comprehensive investigation of your accident to ensure that our legal team demands every penny that you need and deserve.

Civil Deadlines Apply to Your Case

If you or your family member were injured due to another’s negligence, you could receive compensation for your physical, financial, and future harm. However, receiving an award will require filing an insurance claim or civil lawsuit against the negligent party. 

It is essential to comply with all applicable deadlines after a pedestrian accident since a missed deadline could impact your ability to recover any level of compensation. For personal injury cases in Texas, like pedestrian accidents, the statute of limitations is two (2) years from the date of the accident or injury. In other words, you have a two-year timeframe in which to file a lawsuit against the at-fault party.

How The Law Offices of Omar Khawaja Can Help

Our Houston pedestrian accident attorneys will work to preserve all necessary evidence and information regarding the accident. Doing so includes a review of information, such as where the pedestrian accident happened, who had the right of way, eyewitness statements, photos, and other evidence forms. This type of evidence is vital when trying to prove liability in pedestrian accident cases. 

Our legal team will represent you at every stage of your case. We provide:

  • Case evaluations to discuss the possibilities of your case
  • Answers to all of your immediate legal questions and concerns and information about what to expect
  • Investigation of your case and legal actions as necessary to build evidence
  • Civil court action to build the case for trial
  • Full representation in civil court, including speaking on your behalf at all hearings and sitting with you during depositions
  • Determination of a legal strategy and preserving evidence to demonstrate the full value of the accident injuries
  • Settlement negotiations with insurance companies
  • Presentation of your case at judge or jury trial, if you find that this is the best decision
