Green Bay Pedestrian Injury Lawyer

Walking, whether as a means of transportation or just for recreation, is a healthy and invigorating way to enjoy an outdoor environment. But that enjoyment can quickly be ruined if you are injured due to the negligence of another party. Injuries may be caused by improperly maintained surfaces, dangerous construction sites, or unsafely operated motor vehicles.

If you or someone you love has been hurt while traveling on foot, it may be appropriate to consider filing a civil lawsuit seeking financial compensation. Contact the Green Bay pedestrian injury lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, by calling 800-242-2874.

Common Factors in Pedestrian Injuries

Pedestrians are defined by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration as anyone who is not in or upon a vehicle. Roller bladers, skateboarders, and pedi-cyclists are considered non-occupant traffic and are often considered in pedestrian statistics as well, but are not pedestrians by definition. The following are common factors in pedestrian injuries:

  • Pedestrian fatalities occur most often during night-time hours
  • Pedestrian fatalities are more likely to occur on the weekend
  • Alcohol is involved in 48% of all pedestrian fatalities, either in the vehicle driver or the pedestrian
  • Young children and elderly adults are at highest risk for fatal pedestrian accidents
  • Children under the age of 16 are at risk even during afternoon hours
