Pedestrian accidents

Aggressive advocacy, outstanding legal expertise, and compassionate representation.

Pedestrian accidents can be some of the most severe and life-altering accidents that a person can experience. Unlike motor vehicle accidents, where drivers are protected by seat belts, airbags, and the structure of the vehicle, pedestrians have no such protection. As a result, even a minor impact can lead to serious and long-lasting injuries, including broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, and spinal cord injuries.

While there are many different causes of pedestrian accidents, most can be traced back to driver negligence. Drivers have a responsibility to operate their vehicles in a safe and responsible manner, and this includes keeping an eye out for pedestrians who may be sharing the road. When drivers fail to do so, they put the lives of pedestrians at risk.

If you have been injured in a pedestrian accident, you may be entitled to compensation. This can include compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. However, pursuing compensation can be complex and challenging, and having an experienced personal injury attorney on your side is important.

One of the key elements in a pedestrian accident case is proving negligence on the driver’s part. This requires gathering evidence such as witness statements, police reports, and surveillance footage to show that the driver was not exercising reasonable care when the accident occurred. It may also be necessary to bring in accident reconstruction experts to help build a strong case.

Another important factor in a pedestrian accident case is determining the extent of the victim’s injuries and the impact that those injuries will have on their life. This may involve working with medical professionals to understand the full scope of the victim’s injuries and the potential long-term effects of those injuries. It may also be necessary to bring in vocational experts to help demonstrate how the injuries have impacted the victim’s ability to work and earn a living.

In addition to the challenges of proving negligence and calculating damages, strict deadlines must be met when pursuing a pedestrian accident claim. In most states, there is a limited window of time in which a claim can be filed, and failing to meet this deadline can result in the loss of the right to pursue compensation.

For these reasons, it is essential to work with an experienced personal injury attorney who can guide you through the process of pursuing a pedestrian accident claim.

A skilled attorney can help you understand your rights and options, gather the evidence needed to build a strong case, and negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf.
