Fighting for the Compensation You Deserve
Because pedestrian accidents almost always cause very serious or fatal injuries, insurance companies generally take one of two approaches. They will try to settle the case very quickly for far less than it is actually worth. If that does not work, or instead of trying that approach at all, insurers will simply try to pin the blame for the accident on the victim.
At Rowe Weinstein & Sohn, PLLC, we help injured pedestrians and families fight for the compensation they deserve from negligent drivers and insurance companies. After an accident, we begin an immediate investigation, moving quickly to preserve evidence, locate eyewitnesses and reconstruct the accident scene. Our attorneys will also consult with your doctor and other experts as needed, to determine the severity and nature of your injuries and ensure that your needs will be met.
To speak with us about a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit involving a pedestrian accident in Maryland, Washington, D.C. or northern Virginia, call or contact us online. The consultation is free. If you cannot come to us, we will travel to you.
Establishing the Cause of the Accident
Some of the more common examples of negligence seen in U.S. pedestrian accident cases include:
- Failing to yield the right of way to a pedestrian
- Ignoring a stop light or traffic signal
- Failing to observe stop signs on school buses
- Failing to look right when turning right through a crosswalk
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Speeding or driving recklessly
These careless mistakes cost thousands of pedestrians their lives each year. Those fortunate enough to survive typically suffer severe injuries that have long-term, lasting effects that require years of physical therapy and ongoing medical expense. Our law firm will work to see that you receive the medical treatment you need while aggressively seeking compensation from the at-fault driver and their insurance company.
And though we will always try to negotiate an out-of-court solution that protects your interests before exposing you to the delays, expense and risks of fighting it out in court — we prepare each of our cases for trial from the very start to ensure that your rights will be protected every step of the way.
