Holding Drivers Accountable For Injuries To Pedestrians
Crossing the street, walking your dog or going for a stroll should not be considered dangerous activities. But one careless or aggressive driver can change life in an instant.
If you or a family member was struck by a car, you have powerful and proven advocates at Tunnell & Raysor. Our personal injury lawyers have obtained good recoveries for clients dealing with serious injuries or a loved one’s death from a pedestrian accident. We hold negligent drivers responsible for the devastation they have caused.
Trusted Advocacy For A Pedestrian Accident
Tunnell & Raysor has served the people of Delaware for 130 years. We care about our clients and about helping them recover as fully as possible from an unfortunate accident. Getting hit by a car is traumatic and creates a domino effect in your life, from the ability to enjoy normal activities to the ability to earn a living.
We are familiar with the serious injuries in pedestrian accidents, including broken bones, back and neck injuries, brain trauma, facial injuries and internal injuries. Our attorneys work to ensure that the victim is compensated for the past and future medical care, loss of income or earning capacity, pain and suffering, and any permanent disability or disfigurement. We have also dealt with wrongful death lawsuits in pedestrian cases, pursuing compensation for the surviving family’s losses.
Keeping The Focus On The Negligent Driver
In pedestrian accidents, the defense will try to blame the victim. Our trial lawyers can skillfully counter that narrative. We conduct a thorough investigation, sometimes with the help of accident reconstruction experts, to show how the motor vehicle driver was at fault, such as:
- Failing to yield when turning at an intersection
- Running a stop sign or traffic light
- Speeding or aggressive driving
- Distracted driving (smartphone, pets, etc.)
- Backing out of a parking lot or driveway
- Drifting onto the shoulder
- Impaired driving
By presenting a solid case for liability and damages, we can usually negotiate a fair settlement. But we prepare diligently for the possibility of a trial if the negligent party and their insurer will not agree to pay reasonable damages.
