Pedestrian Accident Attorneys in Utah

Utah's premier pedestrian accident injury attorney

As experienced Utah pedestrian accident lawyers, we know how to attain the maximum compensation for injuries and deaths caused by negligent drivers.


William Rawlings & Associates accident lawyers have extensive expertise and knowledge in pedestrian accident cases. As a result, we have been able to recover large settlements on behalf of our clients. Whether the accident involves a truck, auto, motorcycle, or bike, we have access to resources to conduct the most thorough investigations. Medical specialists in all fields are available to lend solid support of diagnosis, prognosis, and, when applicable, cause of death.
Utah's comparative negligence laws allow for shared responsibility between the pedestrian and the driver. Comparative negligence means that it is possible to collect for damages even if the pedestrian was partially negligent when the accident occurred. 

Comparative negligence only works when there is also contributing negligence on the part of the driver. Pedestrian accidents are complex, and there are usually differing versions of what led to the accident. A thorough independent investigation is necessary to ascertain all the facts and reconstruct the accident. Our Utah pedestrian accident lawyers investigate each case on behalf of our clients.

On many occasions, the police will prepare a report adverse to the pedestrian based solely on the statement of the driver. This typically occurs if the pedestrian is injured and unavailable to provide a statement at the scene of the accident. William Rawlings & Associates has also seen cases in which the statement provided by the injured pedestrian was obtained while they are in a hospital being treated for serious injuries and under the influence of narcotics provided. 

We are here to help, and we will do what we can to ensure you are not placed at fault for an accident that occurred due to another’s negligence.


Pedestrian accidents lead to very serious injuries and even death. Some injuries resulting from pedestrian accidents are back injuries, head trauma, traumatic brain injuries, and many other debilitating injuries. 

Many pedestrian accident injuries result in long-term impairment. This fact is not surprising when the weight of the vehicle is compared to the weight of a pedestrian. Vehicles have much more weight and force than pedestrians, and in the event of a collision, it is the pedestrian who will be severely injured. Injuries that are the result of a pedestrian versus motor vehicle accident may cause death. If a pedestrian who is hit by a car dies, the guarantors of the deceased individual’s estate can file a wrongful death suit and claim monetary damages.

Even motorcycle versus pedestrian accidents can be deadly, depending on speed and the place of bodily impact. Bicycles, while not generally lethal when hitting pedestrians, can cause severe injuries to the pedestrian including head trauma, broken bones, and spinal injuries. It’s crucial to arrange an immediate consultation to initiate the claims process. 

Our firm's top-rated pedestrian accident attorneys are prepared to help you from start to finish. We will ensure that all necessary measures are taken to achieve the fullest compensation possible for the injuries you have sustained. We work at no out-of-pocket fee to our clients, because when we take a case, we take it on with the confidence that it will be won.


We know from experience that many pedestrian accidents occur because motorists simply aren’t paying attention to the road. Many injuries take place when you are exactly where you are supposed to be, in a bike lane or path, or on a marked crosswalk. We will provide you with the medical attention you need even if you do not have any medical insurance. We will make sure that you are fully compensated for the time off work and that all of your expenses are reimbursed to you.

Most injury claims can be settled for their full value through negotiation, mediation or arbitration, without having to go to court. Our firm settles almost 98% of our accident cases outside of court. However, if the Insurance Company refuses to offer a reasonable settlement to compensate you for all of your present and future loss, this may require that you participate in legal proceedings.
You should contact an accident attorney as soon as possible after being injured so that your rights and evidence are protected. Do not give the insurance company a recorded statement as this can be used against you at a later time. You may give them your version of the accident as long as it is not recorded. Our Salt Lake City accident attorneys will begin to work for you immediately and make sure you get the medical attention you need even if you don’t have your own medical insurance.
This is going to be one of the biggest decisions that could affect the best outcome and the rest of your life. Most accident attorneys offer a free consultation so take the time to interview your attorney. Ask what is their philosophy? You will be working with them for a long time.

Almost every Utah car insurance policy has at least $3,000 available for medical bills, no matter who was at fault for the accident. However, most of our client’s medical expenses exceed that $3,000 threshold. You may submit your remaining bills to your Health Insurance, however, if you do not have health insurance, we at William Rawlings & Associates will contact all of your medical providers and obtain a lien on your behalf for any and all treatment you may need from Physical therapy to surgery. This lien simply states that the medical provider agrees to hold on to their bill and continue to treat you until you are released and agree to wait for payment until your case is settled.
The Insurance Company will do everything they can to get you to sign a release for very little money. Most of the time they will make this offer before you are even through treating. Once you sign that release you cannot go back and ask for more help with more treatment or a future surgery, etc. Put our award winning Personal Injury Attorneys on your side.
