When we think of pedestrian accidents, we typically think of cars striking the pedestrian. However, pedestrians can also be injured by other vehicles, including trains. Police will conduct a full investigation and will focus on several factors, including where the pedestrian was struck and whether reasonable measures could have been taken to avoid the collision.
Pedestrian accident cases can be very complicated and require an experienced attorney in matters of disputed liability. An accident reconstruction expert may also be needed in order to determine the exact sequence of events leading to the crash.
