All Pedestrian Accidents Are Serious
It doesn’t take much for a pedestrian accident to cause severe or catastrophic injuries. People simply have no protection against a vehicle. If you or a family member has been hit by a car, truck or another vehicle, you are likely facing enormous medical bills. To make sure you get the compensation you need for bills and lost income, it’s best to speak with a lawyer.

Let Us Help You Through This Difficult Time
Pedestrian accidents can happen almost anywhere, but the most common places include:
- Crosswalks at busy intersections
- Driveways of private residences
- Near schools and parks
- Public parking lots
- City and school bus stops
Regardless of the location of the accident, the injuries can range from broken bones and concussions to spinal cord injuries and severe traumatic brain injuries. The recovery period for such physical trauma can be lengthy. Depending on the severity of the injuries, people may need multiple surgeries, physical therapy and cosmetic procedures.
Ensuring Justice For Injured Children
Unfortunately, children are often victims of pedestrian accidents. If your child is hurt, your family will need full and fair compensation to cover the medical costs, including the possibility of long-term care. We understand, and we are here to help your family recover sufficient compensation. We know how to stand up to insurance companies that seek to underpay claims and always assert our clients’ interests.
