When a pedestrian is struck by a car, there may be some question of fault. The driver will say that the person stepped into traffic or did something wrong. Bystanders at the scene may support this notion, even though they did not actually see the accident or what preceded it.
The severe injuries demand thorough and aggressive representation to overcome these assumptions and obstacles. The pedestrian accident attorneys of Rush & Gransee, L.C., have helped clients throughout San Antonio and South Texas recover compensation in these challenging cases.

The driver may say that the pedestrian darted out into the street or otherwise made the collision unavoidable. The defense may try to argue that the pedestrian was distracted or otherwise should have seen the car coming. Under the doctrine of comparative negligence, compensation can be reduced by the percentage of fault assigned to the victim.
We work to put the responsibility on the person behind the wheel of a two-ton vehicle who should have been alert and cautious in a populated area. Robert Rush is a board-certified civil trial specialist* with more than 20 years of experience representing the injured in motor vehicle crash claims. He invests the time and resources to reveal how the driver was negligent:
- Speeding in a downtown or residential zone
- Turning without yielding the right of way
- Pulling out or backing up without looking
- Running a stop sign or traffic light
- Texting or talking on a cellphone
- Impaired by alcohol
- Driving aggressively
We are routinely contacted by people hit by cars in crosswalks and uncontrolled intersections, on the shoulder of the road, in parking lots, and even on sidewalks and walking paths. We know that pedestrian accidents commonly result in broken bones, back and neck injuries, brain injury, and other serious or permanent harm. We work closely with families to detail their medical needs, lost income and other damages, and we will vigorously fight attempts to downplay your injuries or reduce your compensation under comparative fault.
