Pedestrian Accidents

At some point during the course of the day, we are all pedestrians. Pedestrian traffic accidents with injuries or fatalities are all too common, despite campaigns to increase public awareness and knowledge of pedestrian safety. In the United States, a pedestrian is struck by a vehicle every seven minutes.

In most of these cases, the driver is to blame. But it is the pedestrian who experiences the most suffering in these types of accidents, physically and emotionally. Many victims suffer from road rash, broken bones, nerve damage, spinal injuries, brain trauma, and paralysis. Thousands are injured each year while doing nothing more than crossing the street or using a sidewalk; many are killed.

The medical expenses and emotional suffering related to these traumatic incidents are not something you should have to endure alone. A personal injury lawyer with pedestrian accident experience can help you work through this difficult time and collect the compensation you deserve.

Victims of pedestrian accidents are eligible for a wide variety of damages from the careless drivers who hit them. You might be entitled to medical expenses, therapy expenses, and lost wages in addition compensation for your pain and suffering. If the driver was drunk or otherwise reckless, you may also be able to collect punitive damages meant to punish him or her for driving so dangerously. Your accident attorney will help you understand how much compensation you may be entitled to collect.

If you or a loved one was hit by a car while walking, call the skilled, experienced personal injury attorneys of Bolt Hoffer Boyd to discuss your potential case.

I still have pain from the car accident today but he helped me get a settlement from the insurance company to cover auto and medical expenses and was very supportive. He did a great job for me and he’ll do the same for you."

  • "A neighbor said he saw sparks, but we didn’t see any fire. I ended up in the hospital for months. A friend of mine recommended this firm. David did a lot of research, hired just the right experts and got all the information. They did a good job for me. They communicated well and told me what was going on. I don’t know of anyone that could have done better. They turned out to be very good friends."

  • "Thank you just doesn’t come close to what you deserve for everything you have done for me. Over two years ago I came in not having a clue what to do. You listened to me, you cared for me, and you fought for me. And you continued to fight for me. I cannot express the appreciation and gratitude I have for you. You are a man of character and it shows in your work. It has been a privilege and honor to have met you and to have you on my side."

  • "Words cannot express the amount of gratitude and a million thank you’s to you. What a pressure of relief off me! These past years have been a struggle for my family and I. I will hold you in the highest regards and nothing but faith and happiness to both of you. You have fought long and hard for us! I guess my upbringing and personality were never to sue or properly bring justice. But the morning after the crash and years of pain tends to change your fight. I’m a firm believer that certain people pass through your life for a reason. Thank you so much again!"
