Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrians in cross walk while car sits over the lineDrivers of cars are not always careful enough to see pedestrians crossing the streets or runners. Even if you were not driving a car and you were injured after being hit by a car, you can you have your losses paid by the at-fault driver's insurance company, and if necessary, potentially your own insurance company.

Drivers of cars have an obligation to look out for pedestrians and often times drivers on cell phones talking or texting, can result in a serious injury. Attorneys at The Law Office of Mark A. Gould, P.C. go and get these drivers cell phone records to make sure that they were paying attention. No stone is left unturned when the insurance company for a driver that hits a pedestrian refuses to even pay medical expenses. Our office has even seen where the insurance company blames the person hurt even when they had the walk signal. Insurance companies do everything they can to deny a claim, even when it is valid.

Pedestrian injuries also include injuries when businesses fail to keep their premises safe. Everyone has slipped or tripped and fallen at some point – it's just a fact of life. Sometimes, it happens because we're distracted or not paying attention. But other times, it's due to the negligence of others that we find ourselves severely injured from a bad fall.

There are several categories of falls that are eligible for compensation, including but not limited to:

  • Slip-and-fall – insufficient warning of a slippery or wet walking surface
  • Trip-and-fall – an object blocked the way with no safety barrier or warning of its presence
  • Step-and-fall – a hole or other uneven aspect to the area, causing you to lose your balance
  • Stump-and-fall – a protrusion causes you to stop short and fall

If your injury falls into any of the above categories, please do not hesitate to contact us.
