Pedestrian Accident Attorney

We have no shortage of people in and around the city who get around on foot. Whether people are walking to work, crossing a few blocks to grab some lunch, or heading from the parking lot to the grocery store, the last thing you expect is to get injured. Unfortunately, pedestrian accidents are more common than people think.

Paulozzi LPA Injury Lawyers wants to help if you or a loved one have been injured due to the negligent or careless acts of another person. When you need a Cleveland pedestrian accident attorney, call us today so we can get to work on securing the compensation you deserve.

A Vulnerable Group

Year after year, we are seeing more pedestrian fatalities. When we look at the statistics of total pedestrian fatalities (145) and injuries (thousands) for the latest reporting year in Ohio something shocking – nearly every single pedestrian crash results in an injury or fatality.

Why is this?

Quite simply, pedestrians have no protection from the force of a vehicle that weighs thousands of pounds slamming into them. Even at slower speeds, a person can sustain serious injuries. Remember, pedestrians will face two injury-causing impacts – one with a vehicle and one with the ground. It is not uncommon for us to see the following injuries after a pedestrian crash:

These injuries all require emergency medical care. In many cases, a victim will require multiple surgeries and extended rehabilitation times before they can make a full recovery. In the worst case scenario, they could be permanently disabled.

How will a pedestrian crash victim or their family support themselves if they are unable to work and earn an income?

Will insurance cover other hidden costs of a crash, things like in-home care and home or vehicle accommodations?

Many pedestrian crashes happen in areas where the pedestrian should have the right-of way:

  • Intersections
  • Crosswalks
  • Sidewalks
  • Parking lots

Negligent drivers are the main danger facing pedestrians. Those who make the choice to drive while impaired, operate while distracted by their phones or other devices, or speed can cause serious damage. Any driver who causes a pedestrian crash should be held responsible for their actions. A pedestrian crash victim and their family should not be placed into financial jeopardy due to the behavior of someone else.

What An Attorney Can Do

You should seek legal assistance in the aftermath of a pedestrian crash that was caused by another person’s negligence because you may be eligible for compensation. These incidents can lead to major medical bills as well as other hidden costs and we want to ensure you get what you deserve from insurance companies. This can include:

  • Coverage of your medical bills
  • Compensation for lost income if you cannot work
  • Pain and suffering damages
  • Loss of enjoyment of life damages
  • Possible punitive damages against the person responsible
