Reclaim Your Power After A Personal Injury
Aggressive Litigators For Pedestrian Accident Victims
Nonetheless, the defense may resist responsibility and claim that the victim was solely at fault. If you or a family member was struck as a pedestrian, it is critical to seek experienced legal counsel.

The driver and his or her insurance company will blame the victim to avoid or reduce compensation. First of all, “jaywalking” or crossing against the light does not automatically bar a person from recovering damages. Secondly, the pedestrian’s behavior does not excuse a driver who is speeding, pulling out of an alley, backing up, using a smartphone while driving or otherwise failing to drive with caution in a populated area. We keep the focus on the negligence of the person behind the wheel of the motor vehicle.
