Pedestrian accidents occur in one of two primary ways; when a vehicle hits a pedestrian and as a result of poorly maintained walkways.
If you were injured as a result of a driver’s negligence, it’s important to exchange information and contact their insurance provider. It’s vital to disclose only the basic facts and not disclose anything that may be used against you later on. For example, if you tell the driver that you are not seriously injured or that it’s not their fault, that could be used against you in court if you later choose to file suit.
The best thing you can do is contact the law office of Carlos G. Galliani right away and have us deal with the insurance company from the start. We will contact witnesses, talk to the police and take any other action necessary for you to receive compensation. There are several ways you can sustain injuries from a moving vehicle. Negligent drivers may hit pedestrians in a number of ways. Being hit when crossing an intersection or a crosswalk, the driver running a red light or failing to stop at a stop sign, the driver being drunk or texting and not paying attention, or when they back up, turn around or park and fail to make sure the path is clear.
You can also sustain injuries from poorly lit sidewalks, passing by unsafe construction projects, poorly maintained common areas, debris that created a trip hazard and inattentive bicyclists, joggers or other pedestrians. Injuries can range from minor ones such as scrapes and bruises or broken bones all the way to back, neck and head injuries to amputations and even loss of life.
We have extensive experience in dealing with large insurance companies and know that every case is unique. Sometimes a negotiated deal may be in your best interests, especially if you need a speedy closure. At other times, the best course of action for you to receive full compensation is to go to trial. We work to get you maximum compensation so that you can resume your life.
We serve the city of Dallas, TX.
