When a pedestrian has been struck by a vehicle, the injuries and damages to the pedestrian are usually severe. While this sort of incident is often times the result of inattention on the part of the driver, liability usually comes down to whose version of the facts is more credible. Understandably, many drivers will experience feelings of guilt and reflexive denial concerning fault.

We have yet to see a driver that has struck a pedestrian assume responsibility for the incident. If you or someone you know has been injured as a pedestrian, it is vital that you obtain the advice of an experienced personal injury attorney that is familiar with this particular aspect of the law. Our Federal Way personal injury attorneys have successfully represented pedestrians injured by inattentive and negligent drivers on the road.

Experienced Federal Way and Tacoma Pedestrian Injury Lawyers

Effective and experienced representation can make all the difference. Washington law places the presumptive onus on the driver of the vehicle to avoid striking a pedestrian. Every driver has a duty to be vigilant and “exercise due care” when there are pedestrians in the vicinity (RCW 46.61.245). See also Robison v. Simard, 57 Wash.2d 850, 360 P.2d 153 (1961) (users of a public street have a general duty to exercise ordinary care).

The law also, however, contemplates that under certain circumstances the driver will have no ability to avoid hitting a pedestrian. RCW 46.61.235 states: no pedestrian or bicycle shall suddenly leave a curb or other place of safety and walk, run, or otherwise move into the path of a vehicle which is so close that it is impossible for the driver to stop. RCW 46.61.240 (1) further directs every pedestrian crossing a roadway at any point other than within a marked crosswalk or within an unmarked crosswalk at an intersection shall yield the right-of-way to all vehicles upon the roadway.

The law, therefore, recognizes that circumstances and liability surrounding an incident will vary according to the particular facts. Ensuring credibility and support for you, the pedestrian, are vital components of every case. We know the necessary steps and have the resources to tell your story. There are no costs or fees until we obtain money for you.

In an effort to avoid serious bodily injury, it is important to always exercise extreme caution as a pedestrian on the roadway. Always look both ways before crossing, use the crosswalk, and obey all traffic control signals. A pedestrian/vehicle accident can result in head injury, muscle sprain and strain, fractures, scarring and even death. If you have suffered injuries as a result of being struck by a vehicle, do not delay in contacting a personal injury attorney in our office.

My case manager Mitchel was great and helped me really understand my options and each step of the process.


I was 8n a car accident in January of 2017. The first call I made was to these guys… they where awsome Lola came to my house and got started right away. They maintained contact with me and kept me informed via email and phone.. I received the medical care I needed and they fought to get that reimbursement. . And after everything I feel I got a fair deal. I highly recommend them. Also liandra is very kind and helpful…Thank you guys so much


My boyfriend and i worked with Mr. Pustzai on a car accident case. Working with him and his team was nothing short of amazing. They were there for us every step of the way, from the incident until the final court days and beyond that. I have always been able to reach out to Vita and Mr.Pustzai with any questions and get a quick response. They show empathy and are personable as well as very professional! Thank you so much for your work.


Mr. Park was understanding, extraordinarily competent, and hard working. His advice and guidance every step of the way was invaluable and extremely helpful. He was always very easy to reach by phone or email, kept me updated on all aspects of the case and succeeded in getting me a fair and generous settlement.


When you talk with them they are able to walk you through your case step-by-step, and they are able to make you understand each and every aspect of your case.


They handled my case very professionally. They were always very helpful, always available, very kind and great to work with. I felt like I was treated like family.


They just made me feel really secure that they were going to do their best and they were going to fight for me. It just felt nice to have someone care enough to want to do that for us.


My wife and son were in a collision in February, Mitchell was amazing. He made our family feel very cared for and took care of everything for us. A very competent and professional person. If I ever have any issues again I know the first place I’m going. Thanks Mitchell


My case recently closed and I am glad to have worked with Mitchel Pinedo during the entire process. I did not know how to deal with this situation as I had never been in a car accident before. I was not well health wise and neither was my mother. I lost my car as it was totaled and I was not at fault. Mitchel handled the case and exceeded all expectations. He kept me updated and answered all of my questions. Mitchel is very professional and was always punctual to our meetings. I highly recommend you to see Mitchel if you are in need of a great lawyer.

I first worked with Kimberly Yoon about 10 years ago for an auto accident case. Though I had no knowledge of legal procedures, she was so patient and sincerely empathetic. So when I was involved in another auto accident, I knew she was the best person to call. Her level of experience and client care exceeded my expectations. Her assistant, Michael, is just as caring and quick to follow up as she is. Thank you very much for eliminating much of the stress that follows an accident and ensuring that your client gets the best care!

Park Chenaur is the best! I’ve been referring people to Kimberly Yoon for the last three years because she’s amazing! She works hard to get you the best possible outcome for your case and really makes you feel great as a client. My mom was in a auto accident last year and Kimberly was able to get her well above what we were expecting. Thanks again Kim & Park Chenaur!

My mother and I worked with Mitchel Pinedo after our car accident and all I can say is he’s truly wonderful. He made the entire process easy to understand and was extremely helpful. It was our first time seeking out a lawyer and having him help us from start to finish made the whole experience much better and stress free.
