Northwest Arkansas Pedestrian & Cycling Lawyers
Springdale, Bentonville, Fayetteville, and Rogers comprise one of the fastest-growing areas not only in Arkansas but in the country. Such rapid growth in population means added vehicle traffic and changing traffic dynamics which, in turn, can result in increasing and dangerous vehicle and pedestrian interactions.
Those in Northwest Arkansas are also aware of how pedestrian-friendly many parts of the area can be with walking and running trails aplenty, including the Razorback Regional Greenway that connects Fayetteville to Bentonville, with Springdale and Rogers in-between. Along with numerous college campuses and neighborhoods within “walking distance” of shops and restaurants, Northwest Arkansas is an excellent place for pedestrians to walk to and from their destinations.
Injured while Walking or Cycling?
While any accident carries serious consequences, wrecks involving a pedestrian or cyclist are especially at risk. When a vehicle strikes an unprotected person, it often results in lifelong injuries or permanent disabilities.
Walkers and joggers shouldn’t have to live in fear of traffic. If you were injured in a pedestrian accident, you may be legally entitled to compensation.
Accidents involving a pedestrian or cyclist may be more difficult to prove who’s to blame for the incident. While cars must yield to pedestrians, pedestrians do not always have the right-of-way. Pedestrian laws also vary from state to state, adding to the complexity of your accident.
In this situation, it’s vital to have an local injury lawyer on your side.
