Injured in a Pedestrian Accident
and Need Legal Counsel?
Close to 90,000 people are seriously injured in pedestrian-related traffic accidents each year. Nearly 6,000 of those injured will die as a result of their injuries. Pedestrian accidents caused by a negligent or careless driver are a severe risk to the public. These types of accidents have caused millions of dollars in medical damages. Gingery Hammer & Schneiderman LLP can help you with your claim- be it caused by a drunk driver, simple negligence, or other types of accident. Our attorney team understands bicycle and pedestrian accidents can be much more serious and that confusion and inattention are the two main reasons that these types of accidents take place. Statistics show us that many of these accident victims are smaller children and the elderly.
Pedestrian Injury Cases Involve a Broad Range of Accidents Including:
- Car Accidents
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Red Light Violation Accidents
- Alcohol-Related Accidents
- Truck Accidents
- Bicycle Accidents
- Drug-Related Accidents
Be aware that the driver’s insurance company lawyers may even try to blame YOU for your injuries by claiming that YOUR negligence caused the accident. Be sure that the negligent parties are held responsible for medical and other financial damages related to your accident.
Obtain Qualified Legal Counsel
If you have involved in a pedestrian accident, DO NOT give a statement to the insurance company until you have spoken with an attorney. Seek medical attention right away and follow your doctor’s instructions. This is imperative as your health should be your number one concern. Another consideration, however, is that insurance industry adjusters frequently claim that if you didn’t seek treatment, for ANY reason, you must not have been hurt. Please do not let a lack of health insurance coverage keep you from seeking treatment. Call and ask me how I can help with your personal injury claim.
