Insurance and pedestrian accidents

If you were hit by a car or other vehicle, it can be difficult to know whose insurer should pay for your medical expenses. If the driver was uninsured, your own car insurance policy might cover your medical costs. Also, if you live with a family member who is insured, your injuries might fall under his or her coverage.

At our firm, we have extensive experience handling insurance claims and issues. We will work with you, the driver's insurer and your insurer to make sure you get the medical coverage you need to recover from your pedestrian accident or crosswalk injuries, including:

  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Broken bones and fractures
  • Road rash, burns and scarring Burns/Disfigurement
  • Head and traumatic brain injuries (TBI)

Investigating and collecting crucial evidence to build your case

It is important to hire an attorney as soon as possible after your accident, whether you were the victim of a hit and run or a crosswalk accident. Vital evidence for your case could be lost as memories fade and evidence vanishes over time.

At our firm, we will work quickly and diligently to preserve photos of the accident scene, testimony from key witnesses and accident reports detailing the circumstances of the accident. We work with a network of accident reconstructionists and other experts to develop your case. By analyzing the crosswalk, traffic signals and their operation, we will work to present a clear picture of the accident and your injuries to the jury at trial.
