Many people in modern cities use a variety of modes of transportation to get from place to place. Between cars, trolleys, buses, and bicycles, Philadelphians have plenty of options to choose from. Regardless of what type of transportation you use most often, we are all pedestrians at some point. Whether you are walking from your parking lot to your office, or waiting for the bus at a bus stop, during the time you are on foot you are considered a pedestrian. Pedestrians are extremely vulnerable to injuries, and are often placed at risk by a variety of hazards. When these accidents are caused by the negligence of another, victims may be able to recover financial compensation. As a result, anyone injured in a pedestrian accident should be certain to discuss their case with an experienced Philadelphia personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.
