We Hold Negligent Drivers Liable For Your Losses
The majority of pedestrian accidents are caused when a pedestrian is hit by a vehicle. Drivers have a responsibility to share the road with other vehicles and pedestrians, but they can fail to see pedestrians if they are not paying attention. Distracted drivers, drunk drivers and drivers who are speeding are more likely to hit pedestrians because their full attention is not on the road.
Even a relatively minor accident can severely injure a pedestrian. Typical injuries may include:
- Traumatic Brain Injuries
- Broken bones
- Back and neck injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Internal injuries
Any of these injuries may cause temporary or permanent disability. We will seek damages to cover the cost of your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. In catastrophic cases, you may also need compensation for long-term care and modifications to your home and vehicles.
