Oregon Pedestrian Accident Lawyers – Eugene, Springfield & Portland’s Crosswalks
Oregon’s crosswalks are deadly, particularly when the speed limit is over 25 mph and the roadways are wide. There are just too many distractions to make any crosswalk or pedestrian crossing perfectly safe. You have to be nimble, fast, able-bodied, and not distracted to guarantee safe passage on Eugene, Portland, and Salem, Oregon crosswalks.
Unfortunately, where does that leave the elderly walkers and parents with young children crossing streets in marked and unmarked crosswalks? The pedestrian accident personal injury attorneys of Eugene-based Arnold Law have handled a multitude of personal injury accidents involving motor vehicles vs. pedestrians statewide throughout Oregon.
A few notable examples including children and elderly crossing crosswalks alone and with parents. Personal injury attorney Mike Arnold of Arnold Law led the investigation and pursuit of justice for the family who lost three young children in a crosswalk in Springfield, Oregon, in 2015 due to the negligent of an aged, distracted, negligent driver.
Pedestrian accidents are very difficult to investigate due to several factors but are typically easier to investigate than bike accidents. This is true, sadly, because many pedestrian accident involve wrongful death and almost all involve blood marks on the pavement. There are more likely to be pedestrian deaths than bicycle deaths, partly due to the head of the victims being lower to the ground and closer to impact with the front of the vehicle.
