Despite all the advanced technology of the modern world, we are still unable to eliminate simple human error on the roads. Cars and trucks compete with bicycles, motorcycles, scooters, wheelchairs, and people. The risk of being struck by a motor vehicle is always present when crossing a busy street or intersection on foot or in a wheelchair.
We do what we are supposed to do, using crosswalks and walk signals. Yet vehicles continue to strike people who are lawfully crossing the street. Distracted driving is largely to blame. Intoxicated driving also continues to be a serious problem.
When a pedestrian is struck by a motor vehicle or bicycle, the resulting injuries can be catastrophic. Medical bills can be massive and significant wages lost. If you are struck and injured while lawfully walking or operating a wheelchair, bicycle, or any type of scooter, we will work to uncover whatever evidence of negligence is out there, whether it be video footage, witness statements, traffic signal records, or a moving violation. If you were using a crosswalk, chances are the driver or cyclist who struck you was negligent. We will fight to get the settlement or judgment you need and deserve for your injuries and other damages.
