Humans have been walking upright for many million years. It is our oldest form of transportation. While automobiles and other forms of transportation evolve every day, nothing much changed for bipedalism. At some point during the day, nearly all of us are pedestrians in a way and there is no way around it.
There are certain situations where pedestrian accidents happen more often, but negligence or inattentive driving is almost always a factor. Without the structural protection, seatbelt, or airbag, pedestrians are the most vulnerable population on the streets. Pedestrians involved in accidents with cars or trucks can face devastating injuries or even worse, death.
Knowing well of the danger, pedestrians are the ones who are extra careful during their commute which makes them rarely at fault for the accident. If you were injured in a pedestrian accident as a result of a careless driver, you need someone that can answer all your questions about filing a claim and pursuing compensation.

While insurance companies try to settle, we are preparing your case for trial to maximize your recovery. Our proactive approach means less stress to you so that you can focus on recovery rather than uncertain future.
