Pedestrian Accident Lawyers in Dallas
LOOKING BOTH WAYS BEFORE YOU CROSS MAY NOT BE ENOUGH
Pedestrian Accidents can happen quickly when attempting to walk across the street, even when you follow the rules. In our car based society, car accidents involving pedestrians are a daily occurrence. Texas pedestrian accidents happen quite frequently, with approximately 450 people killed in pedestrian accidents each year in Texas and thousands of others injured. The causes of pedestrian accidents are not any different from those only involving automobiles: excessive speed, failing to pay proper attention, failing to yield the right of way, or failing to properly brake. In larger cities such as Dallas, where pedestrians are on every street corner and car traffic is high, the risks to pedestrians are great. If you or a loved one is unfortunate enough to be involved in a pedestrian accident, call the Dallas pedestrian accident lawyers at L|T Legal Team today at 214-484-1930.
A PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENT IN DALLAS IS NOT JUST ANOTHER CAR WRECK
A pedestrian accident is quite different from a traditional car accident for obvious reasons- a pedestrian does not have the added protection of thousands of pounds of steel to protect them from the impact. Also, it is unlikely that a pedestrian can outmaneuver or take steps to avoid a quickly approaching vehicle. As such, the injuries that result from these types of accidents are often severe. Broken arms, broken legs, paralysis, neck injuries, back injuries, fractured skulls, internal injuries, and wrongful death are common injuries sustained in pedestrian accidents. The Dallas pedestrian accident attorneys at L|T Legal Team have the necessary experience with these types of injuries to get you the compensation you deserve, including compensation for your medical bills, lost income, and pain and suffering. If a loved one was killed as a result of a pedestrian accident, let pedestrian accident attorneys help you recover your wrongful death damages, including lost income, medical bills, funeral bills, and loss of companionship.
TALK TO AN EXPERIENCED DALLAS PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENT ATTORNEY BEFORE YOU ACCEPT A LOW BALL SETTLEMENT
If everyone followed basic traffic rules, pedestrian accidents should only rarely occur. So, odds are if you were involved in a Texas pedestrian accident, someone was negligent and failed to follow basic driving rules. When dealing with negligent driver’s insurance company, they will likely do their best to convince you that you were in fact the negligent party, attempting to persuade you that you were not in the crosswalk or that you entered the cross walk against the signal. Even if the insurance company accepts liability, they will still do their best to limit the amount they pay you by offering a quick settlement for an amount below what you are owed. Your medical bills will likely be high and your pain and suffering will be immense, so do not do yourself a disservice by accepting a lowball settlement prior to talking to our pedestrian accident attorneys. Let us protect your rights.
Each type of personal injury case has their unique laws and factual circumstances, so it is important to hire a car wreck attorney that also has experience with pedestrian accidents as well. The attorneys at L|T Legal Team have that experience. Call us today at 214-484-1930.
Specializing in the following niche practice areas:
I was in a severe accident. I was being rushed to the hospital, so no one listened to me explain how it happened. Everyone said it was my fault, including my insurance company. Michael took my case, used an accident reconstructionist, and found two witnesses. He proved it was not my fault. He got me the most money available under the other driver’s insurance policy and from my own policy.
Michael is a top notch, result-oriented attorney. His representation of me was incredibly helpful and could not have been better.
Michael really worked hard for me. He analyzed my case from every angle and took time to answer all of my questions. The whole time, I could tell that he cared about me an my case. Since he represented me, I have even recommended Michael to a friend.
I was involved in a four car pileup. My first attorney dropped me as a client because he didn’t think he could get a recovery for me based on the complicated facts. I was referred to the attorneys at Lovins|Trosclair, and they recovered the maximum amount of insurance available from the Defendant.
