When Pedestrians Are Hit By Negligent Drivers

Each year in Mississippi, an estimated average of 73 pedestrians* die of injuries sustained in accidents. When a pedestrian is struck by a vehicle in the street, in a parking lot, or on a sidewalk, the injuries can be serious and long-lasting. Unlike motorists who are encased in tons of metal, pedestrians have little more than their clothing to protect them.

Williams Newman Williams PLLC in Jackson, Mississippi, has represented injured pedestrians in Mississippi and the southern United States for many years. Our attorneys are familiar with the long-term physical and financial pain of a pedestrian collision. We FIGHT FOR RIGHT on behalf of our clients, tenaciously pursuing the full amount of justice and compensation available to them.

Were You Hit By A Car In A Crosswalk? Our Lawyers Can Help You.

We assist clients who were injured by motor vehicles in a multitude of circumstances, including:

  • Crossing the street
  • Walking on a sidewalk
  • Crossing a supermarket parking lot
  • Vehicles turning into pedestrians
  • Vehicle backing into pedestrians
  • Motorists disregarding crosswalks
  • Neighborhoods

Operators of motor vehicles have a duty and responsibility to watch out for pedestrians. This obligation is heightened when they are in an area where there are more pedestrians, including schools, during public events and other similar situations. We believe holding drivers accountable makes communities safer.
