Compensation in Bicycle Accident Cases

After a pedestrian accident in Washington, you may recover a wide range of damages, including:

The value of your pedestrian accident claim will depend on factors like the severity of your injuries, the extent of your financial losses, and the strength of the evidence against the at-fault driver.

Our Snohomish pedestrian accident attorneys will carefully evaluate your case to determine the full scope of your damages and aggressively pursue the maximum compensation you are owed.

Proving Liability in Pedestrian Accident Cases

To win a pedestrian accident case in Washington, you must generally prove:

  1. The driver owed you a duty of care to operate their vehicle safely and follow traffic laws.
  2. The driver breached that duty by engaging in negligent or reckless conduct, such as failing to yield, speeding, or driving distracted.
  3. The driver’s breach of duty directly caused your injuries.
  4. You suffered damages as a result of the accident.

Proving these elements can be challenging, especially when dealing with complex evidence and well-funded defense attorneys.

At Walton Law, our Snohomish pedestrian accident attorneys have the skills and resources to thoroughly investigate your case, gather key pieces of evidence, and build a compelling argument on your behalf.

We work with trusted experts in fields like accident reconstruction, engineering, and medicine to demonstrate the full extent of the driver’s negligence and the impact of your injuries.
