Wilmington Pedestrian Accident
Each day, thousands of pedestrians utilize the roadways in Delaware. While a pedestrian accident is not as common as accidents involving other motor vehicles, it is far more likely to end with injuries for the victim. Many pedestrian accidents occur at night or during the early morning hours and happen on poorly-lit roadways. These conditions make it difficult for pedestrians and drivers alike to see each other and to avoid a tragic accident from occurring.
If you have been injured in a Delaware pedestrian crash, you will want to speak with an attorney about your legal rights as soon as possible. You could be entitled to compensation for your injuries. If the other driver was completely or partly at fault, Delaware law may give you the right to a recovery. The value of your case depends on many specific factors, however, and should only be assessed by an experienced lawyer.
