Every year, hundreds of pedestrians and bicyclists are struck and injured by motor vehicles. Some of these accidents cause serious injuries, and many of them are caused by the negligence of drivers or other parties, including parties responsible for the crosswalks, roads, signs and other elements that can play a role in an accident.
If you or a loved one was hit by a motor vehicle and seriously injured as a result, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your injuries. Compensation may cover medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering or wrongful death. Our firm’s attorneys are highly experienced with pedestrian injuries and the legal challenges they can pose. We focus on getting the best possible results for our clients, including maximum compensation.
