Auto Accidents Involving Pedestrians or Children
We have handled injury and wrongful death cases of people run over in crosswalks and parking lots, joggers and bicyclists hit by cars, and children struck while walking to school or playing in their neighborhood. The cause of these cases is not careless pedestrians; rather it is drivers speeding or not paying attention.
Attorney Larry Tylka and his legal team act quickly to contact witnesses and preserve evidence at the scene. After a woman was hit by a security vehicle as she left a Wal-Mart store, we obtained video surveillance footage that captured the accident. If necessary, we can bring in accident reconstruction specialists to help prove that the driver was violating traffic laws, texting or talking on a cell phone or otherwise not driving in a safe and legal manner.
Drivers commonly try to blame the victim: “The kid darted into traffic.” “She was jaywalking.” “He was walking in the roadway at midnight.” Even if there is some merit to such claims, it is not necessarily a barrier to compensation. We aggressively counter these excuses and focus on the negligence of the person driving.
Pedestrian accidents commonly result in serious and lasting harm such as closed head injury, spinal cord injury, shattered or fractured bones and internal injuries. We work with medical professionals and other experts to determine the extent of disability, future care needs, lost income, and damages for pain and suffering.
Holding Negligent Drivers Accountable
Insurance companies aggressively defend against car accident injury claims. If you were injured by a careless driver, you will likely be in an uphill battle to obtain the compensation you need to recover from your losses. This is why it is so important to have an experienced personal injury attorney on your side.
Our lawyers have the experience, skill and resources to fully investigate car accidents and to determine causation and liability. We can help you find the facts and uncover evidence of driver negligence, including:
- Distracted driving, including texting while driving
- Drunk driving
- Reckless driving
- Lane violations
- Red light violations
- Road rage
Insurance companies have teams of attorneys and investigators who are employed to help limit and deny compensation for injury victims. Our law firm is on the side of individuals injured in car accidents. We have successfully handled hundreds of car accident injury claims and recovered millions of dollars on behalf of our clients.
