From our offices in Fairfax and Manassas, we assist people who have been struck by vehicles, fallen because of broken pavement and injured due to construction errors. When you might be dealing with the effects of an incident for years, it is essential to hire attorneys who know how to collect substantial payment for victims in settlements and judgments.
Incidents where pedestrians are injured
Going for a walk is usually a simple, healthy activity. However, pedestrians can be hurt in many ways, and the worst incidents can result in catastrophic injuries, or even death. Our firm handles a full range of pedestrian accident cases, including those arising from:
- Motor vehicle accidents — Many motorists fail to obey the laws that protect pedestrians in crosswalks. Drivers who failed to yield when required to do so create a tremendous risk, especially for children, the elderly, parents pushing strollers and people who cannot get out of the way quickly due to a physical limitation.
- Construction accidents — Poorly constructed scaffolding, debris emanating from a work site and other examples of construction negligence are capable of injuring pedestrians. Many building projects have multiple contractors, so different parties might point the finger of blame at each other. You can count on our experienced personal injury litigators to find the truth and battle for a full financial recovery.
Don’t hesitate to contact an accomplished lawyer if you suffered an injury while walking. Our firm will give you the legal support you need to seek justice.
Injuries suffered by victims of pedestrian accidents
Getting hit by a car or falling on a hard sidewalk could shatter bones or tear ligaments. If your head hits the vehicle or the ground, you might have to live with the effect of your traumatic brain injury for years to come. In some pedestrian accident cases, internal organs are damaged and victims experience the permanent loss of function in one or more parts of their body. When our firm takes on one of these cases, we analyze the medical records closely and speak with expert doctors to learn the full extent of a victim’s injuries and the effect they will have on their life.
