If you were hit, while crossing the street, by a car and suffered injuries, you may have a case, even if you were using your cell phone at the time that you were struck. The driver has specific responsibilities to make sure that he or she does not hit a pedestrian. The driver may have been using his or her cell phone, distracted in another way, not paying attention, or speeding.
There are a variety of factors that may have caused the accident. Just because you were using your cell phone or otherwise distracted does not mean that you were at fault. We fight for our clients to receive the compensation they deserve. In cases such as this, that means fighting to demonstrate that the at-fault party (often the driver of a motor vehicle in a pedestrian/motor vehicle accident) is deemed at-fault so that you, the pedestrian, can receive proper compensation for your pain and suffering.
