Pedestrian Accidents There's No Substitute for Experience 

Nashville Pedestrian Accident Lawyer

Experienced Representation for the Injured

Society often takes for granted the vulnerability of pedestrians. Even the slowest-moving car has enough mass and momentum to injure, disable, or outright kill a strong and healthy person. If you have been injured in a pedestrian accident, you do not have to face this time alone.

Kinnard Law has over a century of combined experience securing justice and compensation for our clients. We are nationally recognized for our results and ethical practice, which have allowed us to recover millions of dollars for our clients across Tennessee. When you need aggressive and skillful representation, we are the lawyers you want at your side.

If you've been injured, contact us online or by calling (615) 933-2893 today. We offer free consultations!

Injured in a Crosswalk Accident?

Pedestrians are among the most vulnerable victims during car crashes. Unlike motorists and their passengers, pedestrians lack the protection a vehicle provides. If you were seriously injured by an oncoming vehicle while crossing the street, you deserve the chance to seek compensation for your injuries and any damages you may have incurred.

At Kinnard Law, our pedestrian accident lawyers are committed to working with our clients to ensure that they are put in the best position possible to secure the legal outcome they need. Reach out to us today to learn more about your legal options and start to put together a plan of action that best suits your needs.

TCA 55-8-134 outlines the protections pedestrians should expect when using a crosswalk:

  • Oncoming vehicles must yield the right-of-way to pedestrians on the same half of the road they are travelling on, or pedestrians who are close enough while approaching that half of the road to pose a potential danger.
  • Oncoming vehicles must come to a complete stop when pedestrians are using a crosswalk in a marked school zone with warning flashers in operation regardless of the half of the road they are on.
  • Vehicles approaching from the rear may not overtake and pass any vehicle stopped at a marked or unmarked crosswalk.

Filing a lawsuit can seem incredibly stressful, but our Nashville pedestrian accident attorneys at Kinnard Law have spent decades working with injured victims, helping them fight to secure the compensation they need. We will help you throughout the entire process to ensure that you understand each step and are prepared to handle anything that may come up during your case.

We Have Recovered Millions in Verdicts for Our Clients

In 2013, 4,735 pedestrians were killed, accounting for 14% of all traffic deaths. An additional 66,000 were injured that year as well, mostly among people aged 65 or older. These deaths can occur for a number of reasons—driver error is a leading cause, often tied to alcohol, drug use, or distracted driving.

However, other factors can cause pedestrian injury as well. Poor road design, poor road conditions, or bad vehicle maintenance are plausible issues in many pedestrian collision cases. As a firm, we work with expert investigators and consultants to root out every possible cause of your injury.

When you work with Kinnard Law, you can count on our:

  • Extensive Experience – We have tried hundreds of cases; the courtroom is our second home.
  • Dedication to Our Clients – No client is just a number to us. We treat each person with care and commitment.
  • History of Successful Results – Our multi-million-dollar verdicts have set records in multiple courts across Tennessee.
