Pedestrian Injuries


Have You Been Struck By A Car And Been Injured?

Persons on foot, running, riding a bike, a moped, or a skateboard are all outside the protection of a motor vehicle and too frequently are struck by automobiles at no fault of their own. Unfortunately, pedestrians are not always seen by operators of automobiles. When injuries occur, they are usually extensive and serious. We are here to help you and to explain how Wisconsin law protects you and allows you to make a claim for all of your injuries and damages.

Injuries commonly occur due to the following:

  • Driver carelessness or negligence;
  • Texting or talking on a cell phone and being distracted;
  • Backing up and not seeing a pedestrian;
  • Operating a car while under the influence of alcohol or drugs;
  • Cars coming out of side streets with poor visibility.

What You Should Do If You or A Loved One Were A Pedestrian And Been Injured?

If you or your loved one has been injured when struck by a car, it’s important that you contact a personal injury law firm that has the resources to investigate the facts of the accident and reconstruct how it occurred as soon as possible. That law firm must be capable of immediately protecting you and your rights. Keberle & Laufenberg possess these resources and will commence this process within 24 hours.

When unprotected pedestrians are struck, injuries can take months or even years to heal. If the driver of the vehicle was at fault, it is the legal right of the injured pedestrian to obtain compensation. We will fight for your rights and gather the evidence to prove your case immediately. Injury victims in pedestrian accidents should not rely only on the accident report of the police.

Pedestrian Laws That May Apply To You.

  • Drivers must yield to pedestrians legally crossing in a crosswalk in a safe manner;
  • Cars facing a green signal may turn right but must yield to pedestrians in the adjacent crosswalk;
  • When a car is stopped to allow a pedestrian to cross the road, a car that is behind the stopped car may not pass the stopped car.
