With more people walking and fewer drivers paying full attention to the road, pedestrian and bicycle related accidents are at an all time high. If you have found yourself injured as a pedestrian due to the negligence of a driver, you have a right to seek compensation for any injuries you have suffered. There are claims to be made against the driver of the car and quite possibly against your own auto insurance. Did you know that there are certain coverages on your auto insurance that actually follow you around as a pedestrian?
If you have been involved in an accident as a pedestrian, you know how serious they can be. In 2018, 6,227 pedestrians were killed in traffic accidents, which is a 4% increase from the 5,977 pedestrian related fatalities in 2017. This figure accounts for 16% of all traffic deaths in the United States. Even if the accident does not have a fatal result, the injuries sustained in a pedestrian accident are more severe and are usually one sided.
In these types of accidents, it’s important to have someone on your side who can deal with the insurance companies directly. Their job is to pay you as little as possible for your claim, but we can represent your interests and get you justly compensated for this unfair situation.
