Pedestrian Accident Lawyer

Pedestrian accidents injure and kill thousands of people every year in the United States, and the numbers are on the rise. If you were injured or a loved one was killed as a pedestrian, contact Ostroff Injury Law to speak with a skilled Pennsylvania pedestrian accident lawyer.

Pedestrian-related crashes can occur in many scenarios. When driving near people on foot, motorists may be unsure about who has the right of way. Cell phone use and other distractions can prevent drivers from seeing a pedestrian in time to avoid a crash. No matter the cause, a motorist’s negligence can kill or catastrophically injure a person, and that is never acceptable.

If you were hurt in a pedestrian accident in Pennsylvania, then you may have suffered some or all the following injuries:

These injuries often require surgery, hospital stays, rehab, time away from work, and costly medications. Some victims will need lifelong care and will be unable to return to work.

If someone’s careless actions killed your loved one in a traffic crash, then no one needs to tell you about the emotional pain that ensues after this sudden and devastating incident.

Frequently Asked Questions

Below are answers to a few questions that prospective clients ask us after they have suffered injuries as pedestrians.

What is “duty of care”?

When driving, motorists owe a “duty of care” to those around them. In other words, they must act reasonably to prevent accidents from happening. When they make careless decisions and someone gets hurt, victims can make them take responsibility for what they have done. They can seek justice and compensation for their medical bills and other related expenses.

Is the crash that hurt me a typical situation? Where do pedestrian-related crashes occur most often?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that pedestrian crashes are most likely to occur outside of a road intersection. However, many incidents also happen while a person is walking within an intersection. Crashes involving pedestrians can also occur on roadsides and shoulders, in parking areas, bicycle lanes, sidewalks, and other places.

My medical bills are piling up, but I’m in too much pain to think about filing a lawsuit. What should I do?
