Pedestrian Accident Attorney
The physical and financial suffering that occur when a pedestrian is struck by a car can be catastrophic. Because pedestrians lack the physical protection provided by a vehicle, a pedestrian is highly vulnerable to serious physical damages, ranging from bruises and broken bones to internal bleeding and organ damage. Not only do these injuries put the individual’s life at risk, but they also result in expensive healthcare costs that can be absolutely devastating. Working with a personal injury attorney that is experienced in pedestrian accident cases is essential to securing the resources needed to assist in long-term recovery.
Pedestrian accident cases should never be rushed, but nevertheless are in too many instances. Some law firms don’t have the resources required to prove the full extent of injuries and losses, nor do they have the inclination to treat individuals as more than a simple business transaction. In addition to demonstrating the physical harm that was done, the attorneys at Shapiro Winthers & McGraw P.C. know how important internal injuries, lifetime medical needs, work loss, and reduced or lost earning capacity are to the overall claim. We put an emphasis on the whole person, not just the acute injury, often working with clients even after the case has been resolved.
