The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that there are more than 4,500 fatal pedestrian accidents every year in the United States. In most of these accidents, the pedestrian had the right of way. The pedestrian is unprotected and generally suffers catastrophic or fatal injury as a result of the accident. The common injuries suffered by pedestrians include traumatic brain injuries (TBI), open head injuries, spinal cord injuries, back and neck injuries, and multiple fractures. These injuries require long term care including future medical treatment and physical therapy. Most pedestrians cannot afford to pay for long term care. Our attorneys can get you the compensation you deserve.
A pedestrian involved in an accident may be entitled to compensation from the uninsured or underinsured motorist provisions of auto insurance policies. Our attorneys can coordinate auto insurance claims with health insurance claims for maximum benefit.
