There are different types of driver negligence. A driver may have been:

  • texting
  • talking on the phone
  • using GPS
  • speeding
  • operating recklessly
  • under the influence of alcohol or other drugs

You have the right to seek compensation after being injured in pedestrian accident. But insurance companies are not looking out for your best interests. You need an experienced personal injury attorney who will fight for your rights.

The experience and resources that get results

Recovering compensation after a pedestrian accident should be a simple process. But insurance companies are only interested in their bottom line, and will do what they can to minimize their payments to you. They may even make you a settlement offer that does not even come close to covering the true damages you've suffered.

Cherundolo Law Firm, PLLC will fight to find a resolution to your case that meets your needs. We begin by investigating your case to prove it was the driver's negligence that led to the accident. We build a strong case that the insurance company will have to take seriously.

Damages that can be sought in these types of accidents include past and future medical expenses, lost wages, disability or disfigurement, loss of enjoyment of life, and pain and suffering. We'll review the details of your case to determine the true value of your claim.
