Walking is a main form of transportation for many folks in Lancaster County. In addition, the opportunity to meander around our beautiful town and along our bucolic country roads draws tourists to our area and supports our local economy. Pedestrians, however, are in constant risk of injury on Pennsylvania’s roadways, crosswalks and sidewalks. The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation reports that 154 pedestrians were killed and another 4,101 were injured in Pennsylvania traffic accidents in 2019.
Georgelis Injury Law Firm, P.C., a Lancaster accident and injury firm, dedicates its entire practice to personal injury cases. Our team gives you the personal attention you deserve as we aggressively pursue full compensation for your claim.
State and municipal governments have passed measures designed to protect pedestrians from injuries. The Pennsylvania Vehicle Code addresses the rights and duties of pedestrians. The Lancaster County Bicycle and Pedestrian Transportation Plan creates policies that support a pedestrian-friendly community.
Furthermore, government agencies may be liable for hazardous conditions, including unsafe intersections and uneven and cracked sidewalks, which can cause pedestrian-motor vehicle accidents as well. These claims have a unique set of legal requirements, so it is critical to have the right firm handling your claim.
Pedestrians are particularly vulnerable to catastrophic injuries such as brain trauma and spinal cord damage because they have nothing to protect them during an accident.
If a driver ran into you, you should seek immediate medical attention, both for your health and your legal claim. Symptoms of injuries do not always manifest right away, yet early diagnosis and rehabilitation might be vital to your physical recovery. The proper medical documentation also helps provide evidence of the nature and extent of your injuries, so it is important to report and describe any injuries you believe to be related to the accident, no matter how minor you believe them to be at the time.
Our experienced and skilled lawyers are extremely well-versed in negotiating comprehensive and prompt settlements with the negligent driver’s auto insurance company to make sure you are compensated for your damages and losses to the full extent of the law. If the at-fault driver fled the scene — which is common in pedestrian accidents — your own insurance policy may provide significant coverage your injuries.
However, just as the insurance company has obligations and responsibilities to fulfill, you do, as well. At Georgelis Injury Law, we make sure that everything is done to protect your rights to a maximum recovery. Our goal is handle everything associated with your claim, so that you can heal on your own terms and know that we are aggressively pursuing full compensation for your claim!
