Many pedestrian accidents are the direct result of negligence on the part of motorists. Inattentive drivers can cause pedestrian accidents in intersections, crosswalks, parking lots and anywhere else pedestrians are present.
If you or a loved one sustained injuries when hit by a car, the pedestrian accident attorneys at Miller & Ogorchock, S.C., are here to offer advice and advocacy. We can help you pursue the compensation you need to pay for your medical bills, wage loss and other hardships.
Pedestrian Accident Injuries
Pedestrians have no protection whatsoever against the impact of an automobile collision. For this reason, pedestrian accident injuries are typically severe and catastrophic. All too often they result in wrongful death.
Pedestrian accident injuries vary depending on the angle of the impact and the speed of the vehicle. Leg injuries include broken bones, dislocated knees and torn cartilage and tendons. If the pedestrian is thrown into the air or knocked down, injuries can include head and brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, internal injuries and more.
Insurance Coverage for Pedestrian Accidents
If your pedestrian accident was caused by an uninsured, underinsured or hit-and-run driver, you may access your own car insurance coverage for compensation. Your car insurance coverage is personal and portable, meaning there are circumstances in which you can draw upon your coverage even when your car was not involved in the accident.
Our lawyers are well versed in Wisconsin insurance laws and can help you pursue all available avenues of compensation.
