Any time a motor vehicle strikes a walker, jogger or child at play, the pedestrian's injuries are likely to be life-altering or fatal. Whether the accident occurred in a crosswalk or uncontrolled intersection, on a roadside or elsewhere, the victim or surviving family members should quickly contact an experienced, dedicated personal injury lawyer.

Exposing Reckless Conduct and Helping Our Clients Recover
We are exceptionally well equipped to pursue your insurance claim and/or file a lawsuit on your behalf after an accident that may have involved:
- Drunk driving or operating a vehicle under the influence of drugs
- Any of various other forms of extreme negligence such as texting while driving — and/or criminal conduct such as hit and run
- A driver who exceeded the speed limit, ran a red light or violated other traffic laws
- Failure to give the right of way to a pedestrian, which is a clear requirement of state law and many local ordinances
Pedestrian accident cases are often complex for a variety of reasons. Drivers often deny fault by claiming that a child darted into traffic or that an adult victim stepped into traffic without looking — and some leave the scene. Establishing the lifelong financial impact of a wrongful death, permanent brain injury, paralysis or other catastrophic injury may also be essential.
