If you or a family member has been injured by a careless driver in a crosswalk, our lawyers have the experience to assess what your case is worth and find all available insurance coverage to provide the compensation you need.

Holding Negligent Drivers Accountable
In a recent case, our attorneys represented a young man who was injured by a distracted driver in a crosswalk. The driver was texting on his cellphone and failed to come to a complete stop, striking our client who was crossing the street. Our client struck his head on the pavement and was unconscious for a few minutes. He also broke his left knee. Fortunately, he made a full recovery and our attorneys made sure he was compensated for everything he had to go through.
The most important issue in any pedestrian accident is recovering one's health. This means seeing a doctor and following his or her treatment recommendations. Your medical records will also serve an important purpose in your insurance claim. If you do not have a doctor and need a recommendation, our lawyers can help.
