Fighting For You After A Pedestrian Accident
When a car hits a pedestrian, the results can be life-changing. Pedestrians have no protection from the collision, which can cause catastrophic injuries or even death. If you or a loved one suffered a pedestrian accident, you deserve a legal advocate who will fight for your legal rights, including the compensation you need for your recovery.
At DiFruscia Law Offices, our attorneys have been fighting for our clients in Massachusetts and New Hampshire for over 50 years. We know you have enough to worry about without dealing with the complexities and frustrations of a legal claim. We are here to take on your legal concerns, so you can focus on your recovery.
Caring For Your Injuries Long-Term
As noted above, most pedestrian accident victims suffer severe injuries. When a person collides with a car, even at a slow speed, rarely does the pedestrian walk away with only bumps and bruises. Insurance companies will try to pay as little as possible on your claim, which means they may offer you a small amount of money in the hope that you will accept it and be on your way. That may not be in your best interest, however. You need to understand the full extent of your injuries, as well as the care you will need far into the future, in order to decide if a settlement offer is fair and sufficient for your needs. Our attorneys will apply their decades of legal experience to help you make that decision.
Not all injuries are physical. Pedestrian accidents are particularly scary for the victim and can leave them with lasting psychological damage. We believe in fighting for the care you need, no matter the form it takes. You deserve a holistic recovery, whether that means wearing a cast, receiving ongoing mental health treatment, or both.
Justice After A Fatal Accident
Far too often, pedestrian accidents are fatal. If you lost a loved one in a pedestrian accident, we know that you face a very different type of pain. No amount of money can replace your loved one, but a wrongful death lawsuit can help cover any expenses you face because of the accident, including lost income from a family provider or funeral costs. You also deserve justice on behalf of your loved one. We are here to discuss your case and your options during this difficult time.
What If You Were The Victim Of A Hit-And-Run?
If someone hit you and drove off, you may wonder how you can pursue a claim. The driver committed a crime by leaving the scene of the accident, so the police will try to identify the offender. Even if they cannot, however, you may be able to bring a claim under your own (or your household’s) auto insurance company if you have uninsured driver coverage.
