Work With An Experienced Attorney On Your Pedestrian Accident Claims
New Orleans experiences heavy foot traffic each day, including tourists and residents. With this volume of pedestrian traffic comes the risk for accidents. Pedestrians can easily be struck in crosswalks or on sidewalks by drivers who failed to adequately look or were too distracted to stop for individuals.
At The Law Offices of Tim L. Fields, LLC, we are committed to assisting pedestrians and individuals who have been hit by a car or public transportation. We understand the nature of these cases and how to successfully pursue full compensation for the pain you have incurred.
Representation If You Have Been Injured In A Crosswalk
Many pedestrian accidents involve children and the elderly who may not have a fast reaction time and are unable to get out of the way of an oncoming car. The driver is responsible to see potential dangers ahead and slow down or stop to avoid hitting them. Many of these accidents are caused because the driver was too distracted to recognize a person in his or her path and brake.
Often, the pedestrian may think that he or she was to blame for the accident or that he or she should have used greater care. The pedestrian may choose not to file a claim or seek compensation, assuming that he or she could have prevented being struck. In reality, however, the pedestrian has the right of way and a driver is actually the liable party. Regardless of the circumstances of the accident, you may have a claim for compensation.
These accidents often cause great harm or injury to the pedestrian, which can result in costly medical treatment and lost wages due to missing work because of the injury. These individuals and their families need compensation.
Our attorneys will thoroughly investigate the incident and help you build a solid claim seeking damages for your injuries. We will advocate on your behalf to the insurance companies, working to ensure that you are granted the benefits you are entitled to receive.
