Help For Those Hurt In Pedestrian Accidents
Getting hit by a car or motorcycle can cause significant injuries or loss of life. Even getting hit by a bicycle can lead to serious harm.
At The Roach Law Firm, our lawyers represent injured pedestrians as well as families who have lost loved ones in tragic pedestrian accidents. We handle pedestrian accidents in crosswalks, sidewalks, shoulders, bike trails, footpaths and anywhere else where these accidents occur. Based in Lake Charles, Louisiana, our firm has been a trusted name for personal injury representation since 1959. We are familiar with all the nuances of these cases and other motor vehicle accident cases.
How To Pursue Compensation For A Pedestrian Accident
If you were hit by a vehicle, you likely have steep medical bills. You may be unable to work, compounding the financial fallout of the accident. And if you lost a loved one in a pedestrian accident, you are dealing with the devastating emotional fallout as well as the monetary ramifications of funeral and burial expenses, medical expenses, loss of your loved one’s companionship and loss of their financial support.
Our lawyers can help you pursue a personal injury claim for the right damages. We will protect you and stand up for your rights in dealing with the driver’s insurance company. If necessary, we will take your case to court, presenting strong evidence to get you the full compensation you deserve.
What If You Didn’t Have The Right Of Way?
Even if you are deemed partly at fault for the accident – for example, because you didn’t wait for the walk signal or were jaywalking – you still may have a claim for compensation. The driver may have also been at fault for:
- Inattentive driving
- Drunk/intoxicated driving
- Reckless driving
- Or other negligent behaviors
You owe it to yourself to speak with our lawyers about your legal options.
