Can Pedestrians Get Compensation For Injuries?
Pedestrians have zero protection from impact. For that reason, a pedestrian hit by a car is likely to suffer head injury, neck injury, back injury, broken bones or other serious injury. With serious injuries come serious expenses: medical bills, lost wages and more.
Thankfully, pedestrians hit by careless drivers may be able to pursue compensation, and the Kuvara Law Firm can help. Our attorneys have more than 40 years of experience helping injured pedestrians get fair compensation as fast as possible. We are not going to push you into accepting a low-ball settlement just to resolve your claim quickly, nor will we force you to undertake time-consuming litigation in order to maximize your compensation. We will use the techniques we have honed over the course of our careers to do what is right for you.
Results In Crosswalk Accidents And More
All too often, pedestrians are hit by cars in the exact place where they are supposed to be safe: in the crosswalk. Drivers who are not paying attention frequently take a turn on a green light, hitting a pedestrian who is in the crosswalk and crossing legally on a walk sign. Other drivers may simple stop too late at a red light and go into the crosswalk, striking a pedestrian. In these cases, when the pedestrian is crossing legally in a crosswalk and gets hit by a car, negligence is often clear and the driver of the car can be held accountable. Our lawyers work hard to make certain that is the case.
We also handle cases involving pedestrians getting hit on sidewalks while crossing the entry to a parking lot or alley because a car pulled in or out without looking. We handle cases involving people stepping out of their own cars, only to get hit by another car.
