Knowledgeable Legal Professional Helping Injured Pedestrians

There are a number of issues that are likely to cause pedestrian accidents, from drivers running red lights and stop signs to drunk drivers speeding on back roads. However, a driver does not have to commit a traffic violation to be held liable for hitting a pedestrian and causing serious injuries. There are multiple forms of negligence that may not technically be considered violations of the law. When a driver fails to notice a pedestrian, does not take care to drive safely around people who are on foot, and causes injuries when striking someone, they may be held liable for this negligence. Attorney Garvey will help you fully assess your options, and he will work with you in making a decision on how best to proceed with your claim.

Unfortunately, due to the size of cars on the road and the lack of protection afforded to pedestrians, even relatively minor pedestrian accidents can have a devastating impact. A person who is struck by a car or truck may experience multiple forms of bodily harm during the initial impact and after hitting the ground or other objects. They may experience spinal cord injuries leading to paralysis, traumatic brain injuries, broken bones, and more.

The law of John J. Garvey, III protects the rights of victims injured in pedestrian accidents, and we also work with the surviving families of victims who have been fatally injured. Working with accident reconstruction experts, economists, and life care planners, we will make every effort to ensure you receive the full compensation you deserve.
