Buffalo Pedestrian Accident Lawyers
50+ Years of Legal Experience
Pedestrians who are hit by reckless drivers often suffer catastrophic injuries. The outcome of those injuries and how well they can recover from them often depend on the legal counsel they hire to manage their personal injury claims. On the other hand, entering a pedestrian injury claim without legal counsel can cause the defending insurance company to trample all over it and make sure the claimant gets next to nothing.
If you were hit by a reckless driver in Buffalo when you were walking down the street, then you should call on our pedestrian accident attorneys of Faraci Lange, LLP. We have devoted our careers to helping the wrongfully injured in our communities, so you can trust in our abilities to bring a strong case against the defendant’s insurer. While most of the cases we handle can be settled satisfactorily, we do have the know-how and experience needed to go to court.
Where Do Pedestrian Accidents Happen?
Pedestrians do not always have the right-of-way, but motorists should always yield the right-of-way to a pedestrian when it would stop an accident. With that said, pedestrian accidents can happen anywhere that motorists do not pay enough attention to the road, especially when a designated pedestrian walkway is nearby or adjacent.
Places where pedestrian accidents are likely to occur include:
- Intersections with crosswalks
- Streets with no crosswalks
- Parking garages
- Parking lots
- Rural roads
- Suburban streets
Where did your pedestrian accident happen? Did anyone witness it? We might want to investigate the scene of your accident to get a better understanding of how it happened and why. For example, if you were in a crowded parking lot, then we might be able to prove that the driver was going too fast for the setting. It could also be possible that a nearby store caught the accident on camera.
Serious Injuries Suffered by Pedestrians
The force of a vehicle accident is devastating to someone who is not in a motor vehicle themselves. For this reason, pedestrians are often severely injured in a pedestrian accident. It is unusual for someone to be hit by a car and not suffer a serious injury of some sort.
Commonly reported injuries in pedestrian accidents include:
- Multiple broken bones
- Head injuries
- Brain injuries
- Back injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Internal organ damage
The medical care required to recover from these injuries can be extensive. Of course, it can also be expensive. The value of your pedestrian accident case could be significant, and insurance companies know as much. They do not want to pay a large settlement to a claimant, so they will fight however they can. Be ready for their tactics by teaming up with us.
