Philadelphia Pedestrian Accident Lawyers


Pedestrian Accidents and victims of drunk drivers:

While pedestrians have a great deal of control over their own safety, often the momentary lack of attentiveness can lead to serious injury or death.  As adults we hammer into our children the maxim that one must look both ways before crossing the street. However, many adult pedestrians are struck by cars every year and sadly, many children as well.

There are many reasons for pedestrian accidents including ignoring traffic signals, jaywalking, chasing something which has gone out into the street such as a pet or toy, chasing a child who has pursued a pet or toy into the street, walking on high speed or limited access highways.

How many times have you seen a jogger on a narrow highway with an ipod attached to his ears? For all intents and purposes, the jogger may not hear an approaching car. Sometimes, a jogger will be running at night, when lighting is poor and visibility limited. These activities can be a recipe for disaster.

Unfortunately, drivers are also less attentive these days with the advent of complex automobile stereo systems, cell phone use and navigational equipment causing distraction. Drivers may disregard a crosswalk or a traffic control signal, particularly one related to pedestrian traffic.

Sadly, not all drivers remember to stop or simply are in a hurry and decide to disregard the red, flashing lights on a stopped school bus.

Tragically, drunk drivers pose a high risk of serious injury to pedestrians, even sometimes losing control and driving up onto sidewalks or through storefronts, causing injury to pedestrians.

When a pedestrian is struck by thousands of pounds of metal going even as low as 10 miles per hour, serious injury or even death are inevitable.  Head injuries as well as broken bones and severe emotional trauma often follow such accidents. 

You need legal advice if you or a loved one were injured as a pedestrian. Regardless of the circumstances, call us for a free, no obligation consultation regarding this very serious type of accident. If there is any possible legal claim, you need to have legal advice immediately to ensure all witnesses are identified and all evidence preserved. Seek medical attention immediately but be sure to call us before you call the insurance company!  A consultation is free and will only take a short time. You owe it to yourself and your family to get legal advice before talking to the insurance adjuster. Remember that an insurance company is in business to make money, not to protect you and your family from financial distress and catastrophic consequences. The insurance company has a team of lawyers whose sole mission is to defend the at-fault driver and to pay you as little as possible. Certainly, the adjuster may express condolences on a human level, but his or her job is to minimize your recovery.  You owe it to yourself and your family to call us to protect your rights!

Our personal injury firm works for justice for YOU. Serious injuries, catastrophic injuries and wrongful death have catastrophic costs for the victims and their families. Let us put our knowledge, resources and experience to work for you to help compensate you for your loss.


We offer a FREE, no-pressure consultation for all injury and motor vehicle accident cases. If we can help you in any way, do not hesitate to call for a consultation regarding your case.
