Pedestrian Accident Lawyer

Pedestrian accidents are some of the most devastating of all types of vehicle crashes. It is very rare for a pedestrian accident victim to walk away with no injuries. In most cases, pedestrian victims suffer serious physical and emotional trauma as a result of their injuries. Even worse, some victims are told that their accident is their own fault and that they are not entitled to any payment. In other cases, victims are offered extremely low settlement amounts and told that they are not entitled to any more money.

It is difficult to understand how insurance companies could treat victims in this manner, but it happens every day. It is up to the victims to stand up for their own rights or find a personal injury attorney who will protect them from a poor settlement and the dishonesty of those who would deny them compensation.

At The Law Offices of Greg Fitzgerald, PC, we offer pedestrian accident victims the support and help they deserve. We stand up for the victim’s rights when insurance companies and others would deny them compensation and work to ensure that they are paid what they deserve.

Common Pedestrian Accident Injuries

Pedestrian accidents vary in severity from minor to deadly. There are several factors that contribute to the severity of any pedestrian crash:

  • Age of victim. Children and the elderly are often injured more severely in pedestrian crashes than adults. While children suffer more injuries, the elderly are more often killed in pedestrian crashes than other groups.
  • Speed of vehicle. When a vehicle is traveling less than 15 miles per hour, the chances of the victim surviving are much greater than if the car is traveling fast. At speeds of more than 40 miles per hour, the chances of survival for the victim are very low. Higher speeds usually equate to more serious injuries.
  • Type of injury. Head and spinal cord injuries are usually much more serious and long-lasting than broken bones or abrasions.

No matter what type of injuries you have sustained as a pedestrian, it is very important that you do not accept a low settlement offer or believe that you have no case simply because an insurance company tells you so. The attorneys at The Law Offices of Greg Fitzgerald, PC, are here to help. We will stand up for your rights against the insurance companies and others who would deny you compensation in your case against a negligent driver.
