Protecting The Rights Of Pedestrians

Accidents between cars and pedestrians can be devastating, resulting in long-term pain and disability. At the Law Office of Stephen P. New, we will handle the legal and insurance concerns that arise, allowing you to focus on recovering after you have been hit by a car.

Advocating For Injured Pedestrians

There is a specific code guiding how drivers must interact with pedestrians. Due care must be shown by the driver to see and avoid any pedestrians. If there is a risk of danger, the driver must give ample warning by sounding the horn and alerting the pedestrian as soon as possible.

There are also rules in place concerning the right of way as pedestrians and drivers approach a crosswalk. The pedestrian always has the right of way in these situations, and the driver must drive with caution, avoiding anyone in or around the crosswalk.

Our lawyers thoroughly prepare cases on behalf of pedestrians who have been injured as a result of accidents with cars. We conduct thorough investigations, reviewing the evidence and speaking with witnesses. We also seek out any surveillance cameras and recordings of the accident to show how it occurred and where care should have been exercised.

These can be highly complex matters requiring representation that is equipped to handle the complicated process of evaluating the evidence and creating a successful case.
