A successful pedestrian accident personal injury claim frequently turns on how the accident happened. The motorist is not always at fault when a pedestrian is hit by a car. In fact, in many cases, the driver accuses the pedestrian of failing to use caution. Therefore, a pedestrian accident victim needs to have a knowledgeable and successful pedestrian accident attorney who understands how to build a compelling case on their side.
