Holding Negligent Drivers Accountable

Among the most serious motor vehicle collisions are those involving pedestrians. At Sweeney, Sweeney & Sweeney, we represent pedestrians injured by motorists who fail to:

  • Yield right of way
  • Stop at a crosswalk
  • Come to a complete stop at a stop sign
  • Stop before turning right on red at an intersection
  • Provide enough room for bicyclists on a street or road
  • Travel too fast down neighborhood streets

Whether jogging, walking, running or playing, you or a family member could be involved in a serious accident. Still, pedestrians have the right to travel on sidewalks and intersections without fear of an accident caused by a negligent driver, and dangerous drivers must be held liable for any injuries or damage that they cause due to their negligence.

Quick Facts About Pedestrian Accidents

Lacking any protection whatsoever, a pedestrian is completely vulnerable to serious injuries when struck by a moving vehicle. In fact, more than 110,000 pedestrians are injured every year in the United States, and almost 60,000 pedestrians are killed.

People of all ages are affected by these devastating collisions, but statistics show that school-age children and the elderly are the most vulnerable.

Even a relatively slow-moving vehicle can cause fractures and other major injuries to a pedestrian due to the momentum of the vehicle's mass and the hardness of the vehicle's surface. Leg fractures are particularly common due to the position of car bumpers at the moment of impact. Pedestrian accidents also commonly result in severe injuries such as head trauma, brain injury, paralysis, mental distress, disfigurement and death.

Our team of pedestrian accident lawyers understands that, after enduring such trauma, the goal is to get your medical bills paid, make sure you do not suffer financially as a result of lost wages and make sure the insurance company will pay for future treatment relating to your injury.
