Even though many drivers are often conscious of other vehicles on the road, unfortunately, they often fail to bring that same level of consciousness to looking out for pedestrians who have entered the road space. Unlike people driving in cars, pedestrians have no shield or protective measures from these vehicles. The resulting injuries are often severe and can change your life forever.

Our attorneys' education, experience, trial skills as well as our commitment to connecting with our clients set us apart as a personal injury firm that forms a lasting impression with our clients that leads to referrals later.

Protecting Those Injured In Pedestrian Accidents
Whether you have been hit by a car in a crosswalk or been struck by a car pulling out from a parking space, a driver has a duty to look out for pedestrians, and they often have the right of way. Our pedestrian accident lawyers are committed to protecting victims and their families. We can help you recover full and fair compensation for any and all of the following pedestrian accident injuries:
- Neck and spinal cord injuries
- Herniated disks and nerve damage
- Broken bones and compound fracture
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Wrongful death
Pedestrian Accidents Involving Children
More importantly, in school zones and suburban neighborhoods, drivers have a heightened duty of care to be on the lookout for children who may dart into the road. In these cases, the earlier we become involved in helping you the more we can help preserve the long-term aspects of your child's claim. In pedestrian accidents involving children, the statute of limitations does not begin to run until the child turns 18. This is because the extent of the injuries sustained may not be full recognized until the child reaches adulthood and their capacity to function independently in society can be measured.
It also important to note that in any pedestrian accident involving a child, where a settlement has been reached, the parents of the child do not have the authority to approve the settlement proposal. The court must approve the settlement first, and we will aggressively negotiate on your behalf to make sure the offer covers all costs and is in compliance with what the court generally looks for when accepting these proposals.
