If a pedestrian is hit by a negligent driver and suffers injuries as a result, then he or she may we wise to seek legal help to secure compensation. Our Lakewood firm can help do just that.

Our law firm has more than 40 years of experience when it comes to personal injury claims, such as pedestrian accidents. We have seen pedestrians suffer brain and spinal injuries, fractures and amputations due to complications, as well as lose their lives. We have successfully asserted the rights of victims so that they receive the justice they deserve. This includes compensation that ensures payment for proper medical treatment and makes up for lost wages and related expenses.

Many auto-pedestrian accident cases involve children. Instead of accepting responsibility for their actions, some negligent drivers try to shift blame to the children, arguing that they were not visible or ran in front of the drivers’ vehicles too quickly for them to stop. Our experienced lawyers are aware of these tactics and how to counter them. We also know that an accident can be extremely traumatic for children, so we do our best to make sure they and their families get proper compensation for their pain and suffering.

Our Lakewood law firm also can help investigate hit-and-run accidents, which are also criminal acts. Our experienced lawyers know how to handle these incidents. Victims and their families should understand that compensation will only come if they assert their rights after suffering at the hands of a negligent driver. Our legal team can provide the strength to successfully deal with the aftermath of an accident and move ahead with their lives.
