Taking an evening stroll with your family, walking to work, or exploring a new city by foot can provide some of life’s simple pleasures, and can improve your health and well-being.
However, walking in areas with car traffic can be dangerous where drivers are distracted or impaired by drugs or alcohol. Too often, impaired or distracted drivers who hit pedestrians leave the scene of the accident, requiring careful investigation to identify and hold accountable the responsible driver.

Despite nationwide efforts to raise awareness surrounding pedestrian safety, particularly in school zones and pedestrian-dense areas, pedestrians are still being injured and killed by careless drivers at an alarming rate.
Auto-pedestrian accidents can result in some of the most devastating injuries to victims, including bone fractures, spinal cord injuries, and traumatic brain injuries. These injuries can require long-term or even lifetime medical care rising to millions of dollars in costs to families.
Families struggling with the effects of these injuries to their loved ones often are overwhelmed with doctor’s visits, ongoing medical tests, and the challenge of maneuvering through the bureaucracy of the insurance claims process. Pedestrian accident victims and their families need and deserve experienced advocates to fight for them in holding accountable the responsible parties and secure just outcomes in their cases to protect the financial security of their family.
