John B. was a pedestrian traveling in his wheelchair when he was struck by a car and suffered a tibial plateau fracture of his left leg. After returning to the ER multiple times following his accident it was determined that he also suffered from septic shock caused by an infection in his lower extremity wounds resulting from his motor vehicle accident. The Bourassa Law Group Team aggressively negotiated with the Insurance Company resulting in tendering the full policy limits with a $500,000.00 settlement for John in under 5 months!
Pedestrian Accidents & Injuries
Motor vehicle drivers and pedestrians aren’t the only victims of car accidents in the United States. Traffic accidents also affect several pedestrians each year, causing them to sustain serious injuries. These may require long-term care and/or expensive medical treatment, adding to the victims’ distress. This is why it’s imperative to hire a pedestrian accident lawyer at the earliest and strengthen your chances of getting a just settlement.
Pedestrian accidents usually occur because of the motorists’ negligence. Speeding, distracted driving, dangerous maneuvering, poor navigation, and driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol may all lead to serious accidents involving pedestrians. Consequently, pedestrians may sustain various types of injuries, such as brain and spinal cord injuries, burns, fractures, lacerations, and other traumatic injuries that can compromise their health. Depending on the severity of the injury, victims may also require lifelong medication and lifestyle adjustments.
