When Pedestrians Are Hurt By The Negligence Of Others

Intersections are the site of many pedestrian accidents each year. When those injuries are caused by a driver's negligence, pedestrians have the right to seek compensation for their injuries and losses.

Pedestrian Accidents Often Result In Very Serious Injuries

Compared to trucks, cars and other vehicles, pedestrians are fragile. When metal comes into contact with flesh and bone, at any speed, it can result in serious injuries. Even collisions involving a motorcycle or a bicycle can lead to life-changing injuries for the pedestrian.

Pedestrians who are struck by a motor vehicle will generally be entitled to no-fault benefits. This will help to cover medical bills, lost earnings and other expenses. We may also be able to help you secure compensation for your pain and suffering.
