Tulsa Pedestrian Accident Attorneys
Let Us Help You Hold Bad Drivers Accountable
A lot of people in Tulsa walk to get around town, and they should feel safe while doing so. However, at any moment, a negligent driver could strike you as you’re crossing the street or even standing on the sidewalk. Pedestrian accidents can cause severe injuries to victims because pedestrians do not have protection against a collision with something as large and heavy as a motor vehicle.
All motorists must be careful not to hit pedestrians, and when they act negligently behind the wheel, victims may hold them accountable for the pain and suffering they caused. If you or a loved one suffered serious injuries in a Tulsa pedestrian accident a careless or reckless driver caused, you can call Aizenman Law Group for help. Our Tulsa pedestrian accident lawyers can help you fight for the compensation you need to recover from your injuries. Schedule your free consultation now and get started building your case.

Tulsa, Oklahoma Pedestrian Laws
Like the rest of the country, Oklahoma has many laws in place to ensure pedestrians receive the most caution from drivers. Regardless, there are motorists who ignore these laws and severely injure people who are simply walking through crosswalks or on sidewalks. All drivers in Tulsa must:
- Yield the right of way to any pedestrian in their half of a crosswalk
- Not pass a stopped vehicle waiting for a pedestrian to cross
- Avoid pedestrians walking on the sidewalks or shoulder of the road
Pedestrians have laws as well, such as having to stay on sidewalks wherever possible and only crossing the street in crosswalks.
What Causes Pedestrian Accidents in Tulsa?
Various scenarios can lead to pedestrian accidents in Tulsa, and most would not occur were it not for the negligence and carelessness of motorists. Some examples of negligent driving include:
- Disregarding traffic signals and laws, such as not yielding to pedestrians in a crosswalk
- Speeding and reckless driving
- Drunk driving or driving under the influence of drugs
- Engaging in road rage
- Distracted driving, including reading and sending texts, applying makeup while driving, or even talking to someone else in the car
Other forms of driver error can cause pedestrian accidents as well, and you need to consult a personal injury attorney right away if a motorist struck and injured you or someone you love.
What Are Some Common Pedestrian Accident Injuries?
Pedestrian accidents can result in a wide range of injuries, and some can be very serious or life-threatening. Some common injuries pedestrians sustain in pedestrian accidents include:
- Broken bones and fractures, including hip fractures and pelvic injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Neck and back injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Internal injuries and internal bleeding
You could suffer other injuries as well, and you need to seek medical attention immediately after the accident occurs to ensure your well-being. Even if you sustained only minor injuries, you still need a medical evaluation to rule out any underlying issues that may cause problems later. Plus, you will need documentation you suffered an injury and received treatment to have an attorney file a personal injury claim for you.
How Do I Hold the Responsible Party Accountable?
To hold the driver who caused your injuries liable, your attorney must show that the driver was responsible for causing the accident. They will gather evidence to support your claim, including:
- Police reports
- Eyewitness statements
- Your medical records and treatment plan
- Testimony from medical and accident reconstruction experts who can attest to the severity of your injuries and establish fault on the driver.
Your attorney will work to collect as much evidence as necessary to build a solid case for you and hold the other driver liable for your injuries and losses.
What Kinds of Compensation Can I Receive for My Pedestrian Accident Injuries?
Your attorney can help you file a claim with the driver’s insurance company to recover damages for any of the following:
- Medical bills, including future medical expenses
- Lost wages and salary, including any PTO you had to take to receive treatment and recover from your injuries
- Loss of future earning capacity if your injuries result in a long-term or permanent disability
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Mental anguish
- Scarring and disfigurement
You may also seek other forms of compensation, and your attorney can help you determine the types and amounts you can pursue and fight for you to help you get the full and fair compensation you need.
Fighting with Insurance Companies
The first course of action your attorney will likely take to help you get compensation is to file a claim with the at-fault driver’s insurance company. However, these companies spend large sums of money to keep from having to pay huge settlements, and they often employ questionable defense tactics to deny valid claims or reduce the amount they will have to pay.
With Aizenman Law Group on your side, you increase your chances of getting the maximum compensation possible. We will help you build a strong case to prove the fault of the motorist and hold the insurance carrier accountable for the amount they owe.
