Few people on the road are as vulnerable as joggers, walkers, bicyclists and others not in vehicles. At a moment’s notice, a car or truck can strike the pedestrian, causing disabling injuries, coma or death. If you or a loved one has been involved in a pedestrian accident with a motor vehicle, please do not hesitate to contact an experienced personal injury lawyer.

At The Law Office of Mallon & Tranger, our attorneys offer sincere compassion for our clients dealing with the aftermath of a catastrophic accident. When your family is overwhelmed with anxiety, anger and other feelings following a tragic accident, you can trust that our lawyers will have your interests in mind.

Representing Pedestrians And Bicyclists When Drivers Are Negligent

Questions following pedestrian and bike accidents include: Who had a right to be there and who is liable for damages? Were you on a sidewalk, in a bike lane or in a crosswalk? Drivers have a responsibility to watch out for pedestrians. We will use our skills to prove that you had a right to be where you were when you were struck by the vehicle. We will pursue full compensation for your injuries in a claim against the negligent driver’s insurance policy.

Uninsured/Underinsured Coverage In Pedestrian Injury Claims

In some cases, the negligent driver may not be known. This is the case in many hit-and-run pedestrian accidents. If the driver is unknown, you may be able to recover compensation through an uninsured motorist (UM) claim against your own insurance policy.

The force of a vehicle crashing into a pedestrian can cause far greater injuries than almost any other type of accident. Victims of a pedestrian accident may suffer spinal cord injuries, losses of limbs (or amputation), traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) or other debilitating injuries. When such significant injuries result, the damages frequently exceed the policy limits available through the negligent driver’s insurance policy. In these cases, we can help you maximize your compensation by pursuing recovery from the negligent driver as well as your own underinsured motorist (UIM) coverage.
