Full-service representation for pedestrian accident claims
We are very familiar with the typical outcome when an unprotected pedestrian takes the brunt of a collision with a motor vehicle. Our firm has the resources and trial skills to maximize compensation for people who have suffered injuries such as brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken bones and fractures.
Our firm retains a variety of experts to calculate the needs of victims of permanent or catastrophic injuries, or to maximize damages for a wrongful death claim. And if insurance companies refuse to cooperate, we're prepared to take them to court on your behalf.
Proving liability in pedestrian accident cases
If fault is disputed, we enlist accident reconstruction experts to examine the skid marks, debris, impact dents and other evidence to recreate the pedestrian knockdown. We also seek out witnesses who can testify that the driver was speeding, turning without yielding, talking on a cellphone or was otherwise distracted or negligent.
The defense may assert comparative fault such as jaywalking or entering a crosswalk against the light, but under Florida law, the driver still has an affirmative obligation to maintain a proper lookout. We will prepare to take your case to a jury to obtain justice.
We pursue all sources of insurance coverage to meet the needs of our clients. For instance, if the driver fled the scene or was uninsured or underinsured, we can file a claim under the victim's auto policy or another source of coverage.
