The Law Offices of Kevin M. Siegel has experience dealing with individuals who have been hit by a motor vehicle.
A recent study showed that there are approximately 1,000 pedestrian accident fatalities in the United States each year, with thousands more suffering minor to serious injuries. Pedestrians struck by a motor vehicle may often have permanent or temporary injuries and/or disabilities, and some even result in death. There are several factors that can contribute to a pedestrian accident:
Behaviors of other drivers
Poorly marked crosswalks
Unfamiliarity with area
Those suffering from injuries due to the carelessness of someone while operating a motor vehicle may end up missing work, dealing with lingering pain, incurring large medical bills, losing sleep and dealing with the mental stress of having their lives in chaos.
Having a competent attorney on your side to help you navigate the often confusing and overwhelming issues that arise after a pedestrian is vitally important. An attorney will serve as your advocate and can assist you in getting medical expenses paid by the proper party, helping you with insurance issues and, if necessary, filing a lawsuit to compensate you for your losses due to the accident.
If you or someone you know has been hit by a motor vehicle or simply has questions which need to be answered, contact an attorney from the Law Offices of Kevin M. Siegel. The initial consult is at no charge to you!
