Pedestrian Accidents in Norfolk

Seeking Compensation for You & Your Family

Imagine walking along Granby Street or taking a ride on your bicycle down Shore Drive, when you are struck suddenly by an oncoming vehicle. You believed you were following all traffic laws or safety signs, but find that it didn’t matter because you’ve been involved in a pedestrian accident anyway. Over 10% of pedestrian/motor vehicle accidents end in fatalities based on reports from the Virginia Highway Safety Office.

A pedestrian accident can be completely debilitating physically and emotionally. If you’ve been involved in an accident as a result of another’s negligence, please contact the Norfolk pedestrian accident attorneys at Kalfus & Nachman PC.

Our skilled team has been helping the injured for over 35 years and can help get you the compensation you deserve. Call us today at (855) 880-8163.

How Do Pedestrian Accidents Happen?

Pedestrian accidents occur anytime a person that is not in a motorized vehicle suffers an injury because of a vehicle or a location. This means that there are literally thousands of ways for a pedestrian to become involved in an accident.

Pedestrian accidents may occur in the following ways:

Because of limited visibility or a driver’s lack of attention or care for road signage, pedestrian accidents can happen all too easily. If a driver disobeys a crosswalk or doesn’t yield or stop properly when they’re required to by Virginia Code Pedestrian Codes Title 46.2, a pedestrian may get run into.

The light rail trains that were recently implemented in 2011 by Hampton Roads Transit from EVMS, Norfolk to Newtown Rd., Virginia Beach can cause debilitating accidents as well because people are unaware that a train is coming or the probability of someone getting hurt as they enter or exit the train. Norfolk State University worked collectively with HRT to implement the only elevated station on the line and install railings in the median to detour unsafe crossings along Brambleton Avenue to the entrance of the light rail station and reduce pedestrian accidents.
