If you or a family member has been injured in a pedestrian accident, contact an experienced personal injury lawyer at Sullivan Papain Block McGrath & Cannavo P.C. We represent clients throughout New York and New Jersey in personal injury claims and have extensive experience in pedestrian accident claims.
If you were injured by a car, truck or another motor vehicle, do not assume that your case will be easy to prove. Even in cases in which the driver was clearly at fault, insurance defense lawyers are very adept at denying liability and denying the full extent of an accident victim’s injuries. They may argue that you suddenly darted out in front of traffic or otherwise contributed to the cause of the accident.
They will undoubtedly attempt to characterize the nature of your injuries and losses in a manner designed to significantly limit your recovery. As a firm focused exclusively on the representation of injured plaintiffs, we know how to properly investigate accidents and gather evidence that is necessary to prove liability and demonstrate the full nature of our clients’ injuries. Over the last decade, our firm has obtained more than $2 billion on behalf of injured clients.
Our lawyers have handled thousands of personal injury claims, and we handle more motor vehicle accident claims than any other type of personal injury case. We have handled many pedestrian accident claims, so we are able to anticipate defense tactics that are commonly used by insurance defense lawyers to deny the full compensation that injured pedestrians are entitled to receive. You can rely on us to advocate vigorously on your behalf and stand up to the insurance company to protect your rights.
