We Use Our Legal Experience To Help Injured Pedestrians
Because pedestrian accidents almost always cause very serious or fatal injuries, insurance companies generally take one of two approaches. They will try to settle the case very quickly for far less than it is worth. If that does not work, or instead of trying that approach at all, insurers will simply try to pin the blame for the accident on the victim.
At Rowe, Weinstein & Sohn, PLLC, we help injured pedestrians and their families fight for the compensation they deserve from negligent drivers and insurance companies. To speak with us about a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit involving a pedestrian, call 301-761-3837 or contact us online. The consultation is free.
Establishing The Cause Of The Accident
Some of the more common examples of negligence seen in U.S. pedestrian accident cases include:
- Failing to yield the right of way to a pedestrian
- Ignoring a stoplight or traffic signal
- Failing to observe stop signs on school buses
- Failing to look right when turning at a crosswalk
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Speeding or driving recklessly
These careless mistakes of drivers cost thousands of pedestrians their lives each year. Those fortunate enough to survive typically suffer severe injuries that have long-term, lasting effects that require years of physical therapy and ongoing medical expenses.
