Protecting Your Rights After a Pedestrian Accident

It is inevitable that when a pedestrian is up against a car, truck, or other motor vehicle, the pedestrian will lose. Walkers, joggers, cyclists, and other pedestrians may be following traffic laws, obeying traffic lights at a crosswalk, or even out of traffic entirely when an inattentive, reckless, or drunk driver collides with them and changes their life forever.
We help those clients who have suffered the following injuries:
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) or head injuries
- Neck and spinal cord injuries
- Back and spine injuries
- Fatal injuries leading to wrongful death
