Pedestrian Accidents Attorney Serving Hartford Area

When police are called to the scene of a pedestrian accident, it is not uncommon to find the pedestrian injured outside of a marked crosswalk. It should be obvious that the force of impact, even at a slow speed, can throw a pedestrian away from the point of contact.

Proven Results In Complex Pedestrian Accident Injury Cases

Inattentive and distracted drivers are hitting pedestrians in crosswalks at a seemingly epidemic rate. Because of the nature of the accident scene when police arrive, we find that law enforcement often jumps to the conclusion that the pedestrian was at fault. We do not take the police report at face value.

When we accept a case, we immediately dispatch seasoned investigators to scour the scene and surrounding area for additional evidence and witnesses. Reconstructing the accident can be critical in providing the true story of the crash.

Dog-walkers, joggers, skateboarders and other pedestrians are no match for a moving vehicle. Pedestrians have no safety equipment, or even a helmet, for protection in an accident with a motor vehicle. The car, truck or motorcycle, the pavement and roadside hazards can combine to cause injuries.

Moreover, insurance coverage issues are frequently complicated in pedestrian accident claims. Our seasoned trial attorneys are well-versed in personal injury and insurance coverage law. We have nearly 30 years of experience handling all aspects of the issues that surround pedestrian injuries, including:
