Pedestrian accidents – they occur far more frequently that most people realize. Every year in the US, statisticians can predict that between 4,000 and 6,000 pedestrians will succumb to accidents that involved cars, trucks, motorcycles and, even, bicycles. Pedestrians are at risk any time moving traffic is in close proximity.
Distractions, drinking, and the darkness of night are three of most common contributors to pedestrian accidents. Have you or a family member been injured in a pedestrian-related accident? If so, your peace-of-mind begins right here, at Georgelis Injury Law Firm!
As pedestrian-accident attorneys serving Lancaster County and beyond, our passion, dedication, success-driven strategies and experience go into every accident-injury case we represent. Under our watch, we will protect you from ‘predatory’ insurance companies who will attempt to minimize or eliminate any financial compensation you are entitled to.
As far as insurance companies go, you are – quite frankly – in their way. You represent a threat to their profit margin and they are not willing to pay for medical bills or release money for your financial compensation without putting up a fight.
For example, insurance companies may request a recorded conversation with a claimant hoping he or she will say something to jeopardize his or her defense. Insurance companies will, also, use delay strategies to wear down claimants in hopes they will give up and just ‘go away’. These tactics, and many others, are intended to diminish or deny a claimant’s financial recoveries. At Georgelis Injury Law Firm, however, we will not allow you to become victimized!
From a $1,400,000 auto-accident recovery case to a $300,000 dog-bite award to $1,250,000 in compensation related to a motorcycle-accident, our attorneys seek out justice for our Lancaster County clients, like a heat missile. Our winning strategies involve cases that include:
Pedestrian-related accidents can happen in the blink of an eye. Larger vehicles such as buses, commercial vehicles, trucks or big-rigs are involved in pedestrian accidents in any number of locations– it could be a child walking through a school crossing, a person retrieving merchandise from their parked car on a busy street, or a pedestrian standing on the corner waiting for the light to change.
Whatever details surround your pedestrian-accident situation, our legal team would like to discuss it with you. We’re here to listen and to help!
Whether your pedestrian accident was initiated by intoxication, carelessness, distractions, or mobile-phone usage by a bicyclist or motorist, you will want legal representation to ensure your medical bills are paid and your financial future doesn’t lie in danger of collapsing – this is especially true if you cannot return to work for an extended period of time, if at all. Our pedestrian-accident attorneys will fight for every dollar you are, legally, due!
If you were hit by a motorcycle, do not waste any time to set up an appointment to consult with one of our pedestrian-accident attorneys. You will want your medical bills to be covered as quickly as possible as well as receive monetary recoveries as soon as possible.
Time is, also, of the essence since you must adhere to Pennsylvania’s statute-of-limitations. This means you have a limited amount of time to initiate legal proceedings. Give Georgelis Injury Law Firm a call!
A pedestrian could be walking, jogging, or standing on a street corner when, all of a sudden, a vehicle appears out of nowhere, causing a collision. When drivers eat & drink, text, put on makeup, deal with rowdy children, or search for an item that fell to the floor, one is creating the perfect storm for hitting an innocent bystander.
Texting is an especially concerning behavior while driving. If you believe the driver of the vehicle that hit you was using his or her mobile phone at the time of the accident, our pedestrian-accident attorneys can uncover phone data that could, dramatically, help the defense of your case. Contact us to discuss the details of your accident – no cost, no obligation.
