When motor vehicles collide with people on foot, the pedestrians always come out the losers. Victims frequently suffer serious brain injuries, spinal cord injuries or even wrongful death. In fact, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that in 2010 alone, 87 Tennessee pedestrians were killed in traffic crashes. Across the U.S., 4,280 were killed and approximately 70,000 were injured.

Whether you were hit crossing the street, walking down the sidewalk or standing beside your car, I will diligently fight for your right to fair compensation. As a Nashville pedestrian accident attorney, I have successfully handled more than 5,000 personal injury cases.
Holding Negligent Drivers Responsible For The Harm They Cause
Runners, joggers, skateboarders and other pedestrians have legal rights just like automobile drivers. In fact, they often have the right of way over motor vehicles. With a detailed knowledge of pedestrian injury law, I work hard to hold reckless drivers responsible for their actions. Examples of driver negligence include:
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Texting while driving
- Making illegal turns
- Ignoring red lights or stop signs
- Failing to stop for people in crosswalks
