When a car or truck strikes a pedestrian, the pedestrian’s injuries may prevent the person from telling his or her side of the story to responding law enforcement. This can create a one-sided version of events and it takes a knowledgeable attorney to help the pedestrian tell their story. Our law firm can help pedestrians and their family members recover the financial compensation they deserve after an accident. Contact us today to discuss your case with our attorney for free.
We Conduct Investigations To Maximize Your Claim
Motorists often blame pedestrians for accidents and insurance companies will often try to avoid paying large claims for pedestrian injuries. For example, the motorist may claim that the pedestrian crossed outside of a crosswalk or against a traffic light. It may take an investigation to determine what really happened, but we have the ability necessary to explore the incident and gather the necessary evidence to protect you.
As a pedestrian, you may have the right of way at crosswalks, whether the crosswalk is marked or not. You also may have the right of way even if the crosswalk is located somewhere other than an intersection. If you crossed outside of a crosswalk, the motorist may still be responsible for your injuries if he or she could have or should have seen you. For example, if a driver did not see you because he or she was talking or texting on a cellphone, they may be liable.
