Pedestrian Accidents

Car accidents involving pedestrians are amongst the most devastating.  These accidents often involve the most vulnerable in our communities such as children walking to and from school or an elderly citizen trying to cross the street.  Drivers may hit a pedestrian in a crosswalk because they are distracted by their cell phones or watching the traffic rather than for pedestrians.


Most accidents involving pedestrians result in serious injuries.  The victim may suffer leg injuries ranging from torn tendons and cartilage to broken bones.  In the worst cases, the victim may be thrown in the air leading to traumatic brain injuries, internal organ trauma and spinal cord injuries.  Such injuries can leave you unable to work or in need of long term hospital care and rehabilitation.  In addition, in the wake of such an injury there are very real emotional consequences which must be addressed.  If you or someone you love has been injured or killed by a driver while a pedestrian, we are here to help.
