Lawyers Fighting For Pedestrian Accident Victims
A pedestrian accident often offers special challenges such as the following:
- Pedestrian accidents are often hit-and-run accidents.
- Pedestrians are not protected by a vehicle, and thus often suffer serious injuries.
- A pedestrian’s injuries may involve three points of contact. The person’s body may have struck the front of a vehicle, and then the car’s windshield and finally, the street. Each of those impacts may result in injuries to different parts of the body.
Most pedestrian accidents are extremely serious, and they require equally serious representation to bring a successful claim. The attorneys of Berger & Michelena bring experience and strategic representation to every case we handle.

Pedestrian Accident Injuries
Common injuries in pedestrian accidents include:
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI) or head injury
- Back injury
- Neck injury
- Broken bones
- Spinal cord injury
Compensation may be available through a negligent motorist’s auto insurance policy, or through the pedestrian’s uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. These sources will normally apply whether or not a pedestrian accident is work-related. If you were injured while walking or running on a street, on a sidewalk or in a parking lot, you may have a valid workers’ compensation claim as well as a third-party liability claim.
