Car Accidents Don't Just Affect Motorists. If You Were Injured As A Pedestrian, We Can Help.

For pedestrians involved in accidents with cars, trucks and other vehicles, the effects can range from soft tissue injuries to permanent disabilities or death. At Fifer Law Office, we represent victims and their families as they pursue compensation and look to recuperate after a pedestrian-vehicle accident.

Don't Let The Insurance Company Run You Over

After an accident, you and your family will likely face some difficult decisions: treatment options, medical providers, rehabilitation programs, pursuing treatment for psychological trauma, paying for medical expenses, and numerous other issues will need to be addressed.

Our attorney will act as your guide and adviser when confronting these issues. In addition to helping you stand up to the insurance company, we can also help you hold negligent drivers accountable. Although there are numerous possibilities for why your accident occurred, some common factors we see include:

  • Distracted driving: In most cases, a driver was texting or talking on a cellphone.
  • Illegal turns or running a red light: We can often determine if a driver failed to stop or made an illegal turn at an intersection by reviewing testimony and other evidence gathered at the scene of the incident.
  • Impaired driving: If a driver was operating a vehicle while intoxicated by drugs or alcohol, he or she may be liable for civil as well as criminal penalties.
  • Failure to exercise caution in a designated school zone or other area: If a driver injures a pedestrian in a school zone or in an areas with designated crosswalks, he or she may be required to pay damages and face criminal penalties.

Whether you suffered minor lacerations, a serious spinal cord injury or a traumatic brain injury (TBI), we will help you secure the medical and financial resources you need. It's important to remain patient after an accident. Although it may seem wise to accept a settlement offer from the insurance company, it takes time to determine the full extent of your injuries. Our lawyer will explain these issues, review your policy and the details of your case, and offer advice on how to proceed.
