Types of accidents
Pedestrian accidents happen for many different reasons. But often, pedestrian accidents occur because a driver was not paying attention and struck someone crossing a street or walking alongside a road. That’s why many pedestrian accidents involve these types of crashes:
- Distracted driving (including texting while driving)
- Speeding drivers
- Reckless driving (including tailgating and following cyclists too close)
- Drunk driving

How we can help
If a driver struck you while you were crossing a street, you might think you don’t need a lawyer to deal with your accident. You didn’t do anything wrong. The other driver clearly caused your crash. The driver’s insurance company will take care of everything.
Don’t be so sure. In many cases, most pedestrian accidents turn out to be far more complicated. The driver who caused your accident will probably insist that he or she didn’t do anything wrong. And even if they do, the driver’s insurance company will likely do everything it can to pay you as little as possible.
That’s not right. That’s why we’re here for you when you need us most. We know how to negotiate with insurance companies. And if they refuse to cooperate, we’re prepared to take them to court. It’s that simple. Find out how our team can help you. Contact us today.
