Pedestrians have the right to feel safe in crosswalks, on sidewalks and on roads where they are legally allowed to walk and run. Unfortunately, motorists are more frequently disregarding rules of the road and laws that govern crosswalks, resulting in catastrophic and fatal pedestrian accidents at intersections and around roadways.  More than ever, distracted driving accidents are causing pedestrian injuries and fatalities.  Although the elderly and children pedestrians are most at risk for these types of accidents; they can happen to anyone. At the same time, it is not uncommon to see pedestrians walking across busy streets with their heads down, headphones on, and eyes on their smartphone. Nearly all pedestrian accidents are the result of a driver or pedestrian negligence.  The sad part is that all of these types of accidents are preventable.  The complicated part comes in proving fault. This is when you should seek a law firm that has a focus in personal injury cases.

At Action Law Offices, we are aggressive advocates for clients. Throughout Southeastern Wisconsin, folks have been injured while in a crosswalk, on a sidewalk or walking on the road. This is a growing problem. Our focus is personal injury cases.  If you've been injured while walking your dog or crossing the street; our firm goes to great lengths in order to investigate pedestrian accident cases. We begin investigating as soon as you enlist the services of our firm.  We preserve as much evidence from the accident as possible and start an investigation to uncover more details. We work closely with our clients' doctors and other treating medical professionals in order for us to fully understand the impact that the injury will have on your life. Our personal injury attorneys can then file a lawsuit that encompasses all of the losses you have suffered and may incur in the future.

Pedestrian Hit-and-Run Accidents

All too many pedestrian accidents are hit-and-runs. A motorist may not even know that what they hit was a person, and doesn't take the time to stop and find out what happened, or if there are injuries to the pedestrian. A motorist may have just fled the scene without taking responsibility for what may have simply been an accident. Your own auto insurance may cover you in these types of situations. Uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage is designed to provide for you when a driver doesn't have adequate insurance or when you do not know who the negligent driver was.

Pedestrian Accident Injuries

Pedestrians are often severely injured in accidents due to the fact that they are not protected in any way from injuries.  Everyone should feel safe crossing the street.  However, pedestrians are often hit by a car or hit by a truck and as a result sustain injuries such as:

  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Severe abrasions and lacerations (road rash)

We also represent clients who have unfortunately lost a loved one as the result of a pedestrian accident. These situations are tragic and can result in us filing a wrongful death lawsuit on your behalf.

Before Contacting a Personal Injury Lawyer, You Should Know:

The insurance adjustor is on the insurance company’s side, not yours.

Some are aggressive and try to scare people into not making a claim or into accepting very little compensation. Other adjustors seem kind and helpful — and then use your own words to deny your claim. The bottom line: the less the insurance company has to pay out, the more incentive the adjustor has.

We will investigate to establish liability and damages.

Our law firm has extensive resources to investigate an accident and assess who was at fault, regardless of the accident type. We work with a range of investigators and experts whose expertise provides crucial information for our determination of a fair settlement value.

Our attorneys can explain your coverage and your rights.

If you were hit by an uninsured or underinsured driver, your insurance company may fail to tell you about your rights under your own policy. We can also help you understand your medical coverage under your health insurance policy.
