Get a Pedestrian Accident Attorney that Walks the Walk

It starts off as a regular day. You’re going through your morning routines, crossing the street, when suddenly, a car hits you. While this might seem far-fetched, nearly 130,000 pedestrians received emergency room treatment from car-related accidents in 2015. If you recently received an injury from a car while you were walking, you may be able to recover financial damages. The state of Massachusetts has laws to help pedestrians who were hit while crossing the street pay for things like medical bills and emotional trauma. However, to maximize your chance of winning your case, you’ll need an attorney. Attorney William Crowley is a personal injury lawyer focused on pedestrian accidents in the Bristol County, MA area. He’s spent more than 35 years helping clients like you pursue financial compensation for their pedestrian accidents. He’s an attorney you can trust to provide aggressive, competent representation in your case. Attorney Crowley began his legal career as in the 1980s. He previously worked on a famous personal injury case, Anne Anderson v. Cryovac. He represented eight families who developed leukemia from toxic drinking water in Woburn, MA. His fearless and dogged work led to the defendants settling out-of-court. The story became an Oscar-nominated film featuring John Travolta. With that kind of experience, you can rely on attorney Crowley to fight tirelessly for his pedestrian accident clients in these communities:

  • Boston, MA
  • Suffolk County, MA
  • Norfolk County, MA
  • Middlesex County, MA
  • Plymouth, MA
  • Bristol County, MA
  • Barnstable County, MA
  • Cambridge, MA
  • Braintree, MA
  • Cape Cod, MA

Massachusetts Pedestrian Crossing Laws

It’s not always safe out there for pedestrians. Car collisions can result in serious injuries, including broken bones, concussions, and damage to muscles or organs. When a pedestrian gets hit by a car, it could result in permanent disability or even death. In Massachusetts, right-of-way laws state that a car must stop for a pedestrian in a crosswalk. Additionally, pedestrians have the right of way in most other situations. A pedestrian’s right-of-way even trumps a bike’s. If someone hit you while you were crossing the street, state laws give you relatively firm grounds for a lawsuit. These lawsuits can result in high judgments and settlements. In fact, pedestrians can routinely settle for millions of dollars in a personal injury case. But to win a pedestrian accident case with a price tag like that, you need an attorney.

The Benefits of a Pedestrian Injury Lawyer

A lawyer can help their pedestrian injury clients sue for costs related to:

  • Medical bills
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages
  • Insurance costs

In addition, an attorney can help you assert a claim for punitive damages. Punitive damages are a way that a plaintiff can punish a defendant for negligence or misconduct in a personal injury case. They’re less of a way for you to recover damages and more of a way to make an example of the defendant. However, it can be difficult to win punitive damages in a pedestrian accident case without an attorney.
