Pedestrians are said to have the right away. However, if you are injured as a pedestrian, you need to retain the services of an attorney that knows how to protect your rights. The pedestrian accident attorneys with the Brown Law Offices, P.A. have the experience, compassion and integrity necessary to provide you with the legal representation you deserve in the aftermath of a pedestrian accident.
COMMON PEDESTRIAN INJURIES
Pedestrian accidents often involve some of the most severe injuries, including spinal cord injuries, paralysis, broken bones, collapsed lungs, neck and back injuries and traumatic brain injury – not to mention the death of the pedestrian.
PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENT LAWYERS ON YOUR SIDE
Our lawyers represent pedestrians injured by motorists who don’t:
- Pay attention and lookout for pedestrians;
- Yield right of way;
- Stop when approaching or turning near a cross walk;
- Come to a complete stop at a stop sign;
- Stop before turning right on a red light; or
- Travel at a reasonable speed in residential areas
COMPENSATION FOR YOUR LOSSES
The law entitles you to recover for lost wages, medical expenses, pain, suffering, disfigurement, loss of enjoyment of life and, potentially, punitive damages if the driver of the automobile was under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the accident. In a wrongful death situation, the surviving family members may file suit for their losses.
INSURANCE COVERAGE IN PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENTS
If you have become the victim of a pedestrian accident, you will need the services of an experienced Minnesota pedestrian accident attorney. The fact is that when you are hit by a motorist, the the driver likely will have an insurance company (and their lawyers) on his or her side. That insurance company will fight to deny you all of the compensation you deserve.
Unfortunately, there are also many cases involving pedestrian accidents when the driver involved has failed to maintain appropriate insurance coverage. In such a case, the Minnesota pedestrian accident attorneys with Brown Law Offices, P.A. understand exactly what must be done to ensure that your interests are fully protected.
