Pedestrian Accident Attorney
Serving Alabama, Mississippi & Florida including Mobile, Pascagoula, Gulfport, Biloxi & Pensacola
When a person is struck by an automobile, a broken bone is perhaps the best-case scenario. Pedestrian accidents almost always produce severe injuries, such as brain and spinal damage. Family members of fatally-injured pedestrians often file wrongful death claims against the driver who hit and killed their loved one.

Gulfport pedestrian accident attorney Jerry Taylor, is one of the most respected attorneys in personal injury law in the southeast. He has built a successful law firm with a strong foundation centered around the principle that each client’s suffering is the motivation for our hard work and dedication — and the catalyst for achieving big settlements. Mr. Taylor handles all types of personal injury cases, including auto accidents, truck accidents, and those involving pedestrians.
Investigating the Cause
With nearly 80,000 pedestrian injuries a year in our country, every case we win is a stand against careless driving. If the driver who hit your loved one was ignoring the laws of the road and failed to exercise reasonable care, we will find out. A person discovered to cause a pedestrian accident through negligence may be forced to pay for the victim’s medical care, lost income, loss of future earnings, adaptive living equipment, pain and suffering, and other losses.
Many pedestrian accidents result from:
- A driver preoccupied with a cell phone, radio, or other distraction
- A speeding driver
- A driver who fails to yield the right of way at pedestrian crossings
- A driver who ignores a stop sign or stoplight
- A driver who does not exercise caution in inclement weather
- A driver who fails to signal
- A driver under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- A sleep-deprived driver
- A driver with headlights out
