Preserving Evidence And Witnesses In Pedestrian Accidents
Our prompt investigation of pedestrian accidents enables us to preserve evidence and retrieve witness accounts while they are still fresh. In building your case, we seek to show that you were in the crosswalk or otherwise acting safely and legally, but the driver:
- Failed to yield the right of way (left turns, right on red without looking)
- Violated traffic laws (speeding, illegal turn, ran a stop sign)
- Was distracted (e.g., cellphone use, talking to passenger)
- Failed to take caution (driving through a residential or school zone)
Pedestrian Accidents And Serious Injuries
When not fatal, pedestrian accidents often result in permanent, catastrophic injuries that require extensive rehabilitation, surgery and perhaps a lifetime of care. We assemble a detailed and expertly documented life care plan that projects lost earning potential and future medical expenses. Our demand package also includes full damages for pain and suffering, lost quality of life and family contributions.
