Motor Vehicle Accidents Involving Pedestrians
We help clients who have been injured in all types of pedestrian accidents, including:
- Sidewalk accidents: Our attorneys assist pedestrians struck by vehicles that jumped the curb or hit the pedestrian with a side mirror.
- Crosswalk accidents: If a pedestrian is hit by a car or truck in a crosswalk, we can help pursue compensation from the negligent driver who ran a red light or disobeyed traffic signs.
- Hit-and-run accidents: Even if you cannot find the driver who struck you, you may be able to seek compensation under your own insurance policy if you have uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage.
- Parking lot accidents: While an officer may not be willing to write a report of an accident in a private parking lot, you may still have a personal injury claim against the driver who struck you. We can help.
Our attorneys also represent grieving families who have lost a loved one in a fatal pedestrian accident. While no amount of compensation can make up for the loss of a parent, spouse or child, we can help you seek justice through a wrongful death action.
