Pedestrian Accidnets

A Syracuse Law Firm That Fights For Your Rights

People can be seen out walking every day on the sidewalks of Syracuse and throughout Central New York. Some are walking to the store, others are just getting some exercise. They are careful about crossing the street, and most drivers pay attention for pedestrians. But when a driver is negligent, there could be an accident that leaves a pedestrian seriously hurt. The pedestrian accident lawyers at Cherundolo Law Firm, PLLC help the injured recover financial compensation.

When a pedestrian is truck by a car or truck, the injuries can be extremely serious. Pedestrians have no protection against a crash. They can suffer broken bones, traumatic brain injury or a spinal cord injury. They may be left unable to walk-temporarily or permanently. If they are able to recover from their injuries, it can take months or even years.

There are different types of driver negligence. A driver may have been:

  • texting
  • talking on the phone
  • using GPS
  • speeding
  • operating recklessly
  • under the influence of alcohol or other drugs

You have the right to seek compensation after being injured in pedestrian accident. But insurance companies are not looking out for your best interests. You need an experienced personal injury attorney who will fight for your rights.

The Experience and Resources That Get Results

Recovering compensation after a pedestrian accident should be a simple process. But insurance companies are only interested in their bottom line, and will do what they can to minimize their payments to you. They may even make you a settlement offer that does not even come close to covering the true damages you've suffered.

Cherundolo Law Firm, PLLC will fight to find a resolution to your case that meets your needs. We begin by investigating your case to prove it was the driver's negligence that led to the accident. We build a strong case that the insurance company will have to take seriously.

Damages that can be sought in these types of accidents include past and future medical expenses, lost wages, disability or disfigurement, loss of enjoyment of life, and pain and suffering. We'll review the details of your case to determine the true value of your claim.
