Woman, Dog Hit by Car While Walking | Richmond VA accident injury lawyer

Woman, Dog Hit by Car While Walking on W&OD Trail : Falls Church Times.

An interesting article regarding a pedestrian and her dog that was hurt when a car hit them in Northern Virginia. The pedestrian was walking the Washington & Old Dominion Trail and was hit while using the crosswalk to cross the street.

There are apparently some confusing and misleading signs along the trail that lead many drivers to think they have the right-of-way in the crosswalk. This is not true. According to Virginia law, pedestrians always have the right-of-way in a crosswalk unless there are pedestrian control signals that indicate otherwise. Meaning that a pedestrian doesn’t have the right-of-way if he has a “Don’t Walk” signal displayed.

The Virginia Laws Pertaining to Pedestrians are available at bikewalkvirginia.org

If you have been hit by a car while you have the right-of-way, you need a good Richmond, VA accident injury lawyer. Wayne O’Bryan’s book Accident Injury Book: Hidden Inside Secrets Big Insurance Companies Don’t Want You to Know About Your Injury Claim will help you know how to handle the insurance adjuster. The book is free for Virginia residents.
