Aggressive Virginia Pedestrian Accident Lawyer Fighting to Protect the Rights of Pedestrians Injured in Accidents In Virginia Beach, Chesterfield County, Henrico County, and Throughout VA
Crossing the street is something that you’ve probably done since you were a child. It’s something many of us don’t give much thought to. However, as a pedestrian, you are vulnerable to accidents. Pedestrian accidents, when they do occur, often have serious if not catastrophic consequences. This is because their bodies take the full impact of the collision. They are therefore likely to suffer more serious injuries than the occupants of a vehicle involved in a car accident. With so much at stake, it is important to have the representation of an experienced Virginia pedestrian accident lawyer right from the start.

Comparative Negligence in Pedestrian Accidents in Virginia
It is important to note that Virginia applies pure comparative negligence laws to personal injury cases. This means that if you are found to have contributed to the occurrence of the accident in any way, you will be denied compensation. For example, if it was established that you were 10 percent responsible for your pedestrian accident e.g. you were jaywalking, you will not be able to recover compensation for your damages even if the driver’s behavior was reckless.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pedestrian Accidents in Virginia
Traffic laws in Virginia may differ slightly depending on the particular jurisdiction. However, they generally require motorists to yield for pedestrians in the following circumstances:
— When pedestrians are crossing roads at crosswalks that are marked or at other points along a block
— When there is pedestrian traffic at a crossing located at the end of a block with lateral lines extending from the sidewalk

There are laws and regulations that pedestrians are required to adhere to in order to avoid an accident. Pedestrians are for example required to walk on the sidewalk and not on the road. If there is no sidewalk present, pedestrians are required to stay on the far left side of the road or keep on the shoulder of the road.
