If you or your loved one has suffered serious injuries or a fatality after losing a battle with a motor vehicle, bicycle or unsafe public access area, you could be entitled to financial compensation to help cover the costs of your injuries or loss. Kathleen Sigurdson and her team of highly qualified legal staff offer a full evaluation of your pedestrian accident to determine the possible parties responsible and to estimate the damages that you could recover.
While walking offers numerous benefits for people’s physical and mental health, and tens of millions of Americans enjoy walking as either a relaxing pastime, exercise, or a healthful way to commute, the activity can also prove extremely dangerous and sometimes even deadly. In fact, approximately 4,735 Americans are killed and tens of thousands more are seriously injured due to pedestrian accidents throughout the nation every year.
Unfortunately, many victims of pedestrian accidents never receive the compensation that is rightfully theirs. Lack of justice is attributable to a large number of victims and their families not being aware of their rights, or agreeing to settlements that are far less than what they deserve. If you or your loved one has suffered injuries due to a pedestrian accident, contacting an experienced personal injury attorney right away is typically your best course of action. Our law firm has spent more than a decade investigating personal injury accidents, negotiating settlement offers, and when necessary, litigating pedestrian accident cases to ensure that victims receive maximum compensation for pain and suffering, medical costs, lost past and future wages, and other losses suffered as a result of the accident.
When a pedestrian accident occurs, the exact cause may not be as obvious as one might think. In some cases, multiple factors are responsible for a victim’s injuries. As a victim, you may be able to file a personal injury claim against individuals, businesses or manufacturers to recover maximum compensation. Our firm is dedicated to providing you with a thorough evaluation of your accident case at no cost to you to ensure that you receive the compensation that is rightfully yours while holding ALL of the responsible parties accountable. Common causes of pedestrian accidents include sidewalks, paths and parking areas in disrepair, being struck by a motor vehicle or bicycle, slick or ice covered walkways, malfunctioning traffic signals at crosswalks, poor pathway, crosswalk or roadway design.
