Austin Pedestrian Injury Attorneys

Austin Pedestrian Accident Lawyers

Distracted or aggressive driving is an accident waiting to happen. When pedestrians are hit by cars, those drivers may pin the blame on the victim, the sun or other factors. But a closer investigation often points back to the driver's actions.

The law firm of Lorenz & Lorenz, L.L.P. has represented many pedestrian injury victims. The typical injuries are severe and lasting, if not permanent or fatal, and we are committed to full monetary damages for the long-term impact.

Contact our Austin office if you or your child was struck by a car. We practice in Travis County, Williamson County, Hays County and surrounding central Texas, and representing people injured in accidents is all we do.

Liability for Pedestrian Injury

If the motorist denies fault, we have an on-staff investigator to help prove otherwise. We interview witnesses, photograph the crash scene and client injuries, and analyze impact and skid marks to piece together the cause:

  • Speeding, abrupt lane changes
  • Running a stoplight or stop sign
  • Failing to yield when turning
  • Talking or texting on a cell phone while driving
  • Eating, applying makeup or otherwise distracted
  • Backing up or pulling out

Even if the victim was out of the crosswalk or stepped off the curb, the driver is not necessarily off the hook. Motorists must still drive with caution and slow for pedestrians, and a new 2009 law in the City of Austin requires drivers to give pedestrians and bicyclists a 3-foot clearance when passing.

Compensation for a Pedestrian Injury

Our attorneys have handled thousands of car accident cases, including pedestrian knockdowns. We know the value of claims, from broken bones and soft tissue injuries to permanent injury or wrongful death. We know what medical documentation is needed to extract full compensation.
