Des Moines Pedestrian Accident Attorney
While most drivers are aware that it is essential to pay attention to road signs, traffic signals, and other drivers on the road, it is possible that people operating motor vehicles may forget to watch out for pedestrians and persons crossing busy roads and streets. It is important to be attentive and cautious whenever approaching crosswalks, intersections, and other areas where pedestrians may be present.
Accidents involving pedestrians and cars, trucks, motorcycles, or other vehicles can result in serious injuries, especially if the vehicle is moving at a high rate of speed. Persons who are injured while crossing a street or crosswalk may be eligible for compensation for pain, suffering, and other damages.

Causes of Pedestrian Accidents
