Pedestrian vs Car Accidents

Pedestrian collisions are more dangerous than any other accident on the road. When an automobile strikes a pedestrian, the individual’s body suffers the direct impact of the vehicle, often causing catastrophic injuries. While anyone who ever crosses a street is at risk for a pedestrian collision, children and the elderly are the most common victims in such accidents.

If you or a family member has been hit by a vehicle while on foot, you may be entitled to recover financial compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and more. It is important to talk to an experienced pedestrian car accident attorney about your options before speaking with the insurance companies.

A Knowledgeable Professional Who Is On Your Side

Sometimes, serious car accidents resulting in pedestrian injuries are caused by poorly marked crosswalks, improperly timed lights and other hazardous road conditions. Other times, a car malfunctioned through no fault of the driver, due to a defective car part or negligent auto repair job. We regularly assist injured clients in seeking restitution from government agencies, construction firms, vehicle repair and maintenance technicians and automobile manufacturers who were responsible for the unsafe conditions that led to our clients’ injuries.
