Pedestrian Car Accidents

The Levin Firm is the premier Philly pedestrian accident law firm, where we understand that representing pedestrian accident victims requires a particular type of skill and knowledge, as well as the ability to understand the rights of the pedestrian who is often taken for granted. Our Philadelphia pedestrian accident law firm analyzes which insurance companies are responsible for paying for medical bills, wage losses and pain and suffering. Our Pennsylvania injury lawyers understand that your personal auto insurance carrier, or a relative’s insurance carrier, may be liable for the claim. In other circumstances, your bills and other damages may be the responsibility of the Pennsylvania Financial Responsibility Assigned Claims Plan.

Every nine minutes in the United States, a pedestrian is injured as a result of a pedestrian / motor vehicle crash. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 4,092 pedestrians died in 2009 as a result of being struck by a motor vehicle. That amounts to almost eleven pedestrian deaths per day at the hands of drivers of motor vehicles.

Except in very limited circumstances, pedestrians have the right of way on the roadways. It is the driver of the vehicle’s responsibility to yield to pedestrians who are lawfully crossing the roadway. Unfortunately, despite their best efforts to cross at crosswalks and intersections and walk on the sidewalk and shoulder, pedestrians are all too frequently struck by negligent, distracted, or drunk drivers who are not properly yielding the right of way. Sadly, it is the innocent pedestrian who suffers the most serious injuries in these situations. Cuts, scrapes, and bruises are almost always present. More serious injuries, such as broken bones, concussions, internal bleeding, and even death, are also a very real possibility.

We fight to recover the many types of damages and compensation our clients are entitled to, including medical expenses, hospital bills, rehabilitations expenses, lost earnings, future wage losses, lost earning capacity, physical disabilities, scars, loss of a limb, brain and head injuries, emotional distress, depression, anxiety, grief, and pain and suffering. We understand these issues, and work with our clients, their friends and family, as well as their doctors, psychologists, long-term care planners, and others – to assure that our clients receive not only the finest legal representation, but also the finest support and medical care.

Representing pedestrian accident victims requires a team of aggressive investigators and lawyers all devoting their maximum effort to their clients. At The Levin Firm, our Pennsylvania and New Jersey personal injury attorneys investigate every claim so that we may aggressively and zealously represent our clients and obtain the best possible results.

When you need a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania or New Jersey personal injury attorney to represent you, a family member or friend who has suffered a pedestrian accident injury, contact The Levin Firm, who represent every client zealously in order to obtain the best results possible in each case.
