At Georgelis Injury Law Firm, our pedestrian accident attorneys offer top-tier legal counsel for our Lancaster clients so they better understand: 1) how fault is determined 2) what laws oversee those involved in pedestrian accidents and 3) what types of financial compensation they can expect for their losses and damages.
Many people believe they can’t afford a traffic-accident lawyer – let’s address that myth. At Georgelis Injury Law Firm, you will pay no out-of-pocket fees. We only get paid if and when we make a monetary recovery for you. We will also advance all of the costs associated with handling your case, so you can focus on your recovery and your family.
In other words, you have nothing to lose, and possibly much to gain by giving our legal team a call at 1-800-HURT-NOW. We will address your concerns and advise you on your next step forward!
Be assured, also, that our pedestrian-accident lawyer team will leave no stone unturned as we seek compensation for losses and damages on your behalf. From broken bones to head trauma, to neck and low back injuries, to disc herniations and torn tendons or ligaments, to amputations and wrongful death, we fight for the full financial recoveries and medical services our clients need and deserve!
While you recover from your accident injuries, our pedestrian-accident lawyers will work to maximize the recovery for your losses and damages! If it is found that the at-fault driver, or defendant, did not exercise a reasonable level of care, then negligence becomes a center-stage issue. Establishing who was at fault, and if that fault was shared, are critical qualifiers when determining if a Lancaster client receives maximized compensation, a reduced amount, or having a claim that is not viable.
Do not admit fault – Your view of what took place may not be entirely accurate – and even if it is, mum’s the word! While telling the police your version of events is important, do not tell the other party, nor the police, that you accept any semblance of blame for the traffic accident. This is not a time to be overly gracious – do not apologize since that could be treated as an admission of guilt by the insurance company.
Do not ignore filing a police report – Be sure to file a police report! Not filing a pedestrian traffic-accident report could give your insurance company a sound reason to reject coverage of your medical bills or other damages. Obtaining the other party’s information is not enough. Besides, the other party’s information could be inaccurate or outdated.
Do not assume you are OK – Many injuries, like closed-head, neck and back injuries, can take days, weeks, or longer to emerge as a serious condition. For example, a bump on the head could lead to bleeding in, or around, the brain – assume nothing, medically! Make a doctor’s appointment ASAP since medical documentation of your pedestrian-accident claim and the injuries you suffered can help safeguard your legal rights.
Do not speak with the insurance company for the driver who caused the accident – You’ve heard the adage, “What you say can be used against you!” It is in your best interest to not speak with an insurance representative or adjuster who, for example, may request a recorded statement in hopes that you will say something that might backfire and jeopardize your claim.
Do contact our pedestrian accident lawyer team – Contacting Georgelis Injury Law Firm should be one of the first critical steps you take after a pedestrian traffic accident has happened. After you seek medical attention, give us a call, right away! Any type of traffic accident case can involve an abundance of legal intricacies. We will guide you through the twists and turns of the legal maze with the highest caliber of skill and proficiency.
The two issues that are always present in a bodily injury claim arising from a pedestrian traffic accident are liability—meaning, who is at fault—and damages—meaning, what injuries and losses have you suffered as a result of the other party’s negligence or carelessness. Our legal team will scrutinize every detail of your pedestrian-related accident and work towards getting you all of the monetary compensation you deserve. Our legal team will help establish fault, work up your damages claim, be your mouthpiece for insurance companies, and be by your side every step of the way.

Georgelis Injury Law Firm utilizes its winning strategies with pedestrian accidents of all types:
Pedestrians can be hit by buses, big-rigs, trucks, delivery vans, and cars – every collision event is horrific. When these types of accidents happen, insurance companies quickly work to minimize their damages.
Feel encouraged that our pedestrian traffic-accident lawyers offer in-depth knowledge of the Pennsylvania Motor Vehicle Code, a winning track record, and decades of experience that all combine to work in your favor!
Motorcycles, too, pose a real threat for pedestrians. When a motorcyclist illegally zooms through an intersection, they can strike a pedestrian in an instant. Or, if a motorcyclist chooses to speed or perform cycle tricks and loses control, pedestrians in close proximity could pay the price.
Whether you were walking, jogging, standing, or retrieving items from your parked car and were hit by a motorcycle, action needs to be taken, quickly! You want medical bills paid and to receive monetary recovery as quickly as possible. Our pedestrian-accident team would like to speak with you concerning the details of your claim!
When someone takes their eyes off the road, it only takes a few seconds to suddenly realized you’re about to plow into a pedestrian. A driver not paying attention might be eating, looking for a lost item, selecting a radio station, texting, or reaching into the back seat – any one of these distractions can lead to a tragedy.
Mobile-phone usage is the leading cause of distracted driving accidents. If you believe the driver of a vehicle was using a mobile phone just before your pedestrian accident occurred, our accident lawyers can uncover phone evidence that can dramatically boost the strength and value of your case!
Every client who walks through our doors is handled with great care and compassion, with the goal of providing as much peace-of-mind as possible. When a pedestrian-related injury occurs at the hands of a motor vehicle operator, the law says that the pedestrian has a right to recover for losses and damages sustained. Securing the most money for injury victims is important to ensure they can resume their life with as much normalcy as possible – whether that amount is in the tens-of-thousands, hundreds-of-thousands, or million-plus dollar amounts.
Whether you are dealing with an injury and all the challenges associated with it, or a wrongful-death claim, our pedestrian traffic-accident lawyers possess top legal prowess and knowledge of the law that is second to none.

If there is one thing to remember, let it be this: when you acquire top pedestrian-accident lawyers, you are drastically improving your chances of obtaining a far greater recovery than what an insurance company would offer a pedestrian traffic accident victim on their own. Insurance companies employ highly-trained negotiators to protect their financial assets. They are not out to lose, and unrepresented car accident victims can become sitting ducks!
Our pedestrian accident lawyers will aggressively go up against insurance company negotiators, on your behalf, to ensure your rights are protected and your claim is given the attention and compensation it deserves.
Our pedestrian traffic-accident lawyers will uncover any available insurance coverages. Case in point: there may be insurance coverage you may not be aware of, such as additional bodily injury liability, an umbrella policy or underinsured or uninsured motor vehicle insurance coverage. A client who would have initially received $100,000 in a settlement, could receive several times that if additional liability coverage is discovered by our astute legal team. Moreover, recent changes in the law have given pedestrian accident victims greater access to insurance covering other vehicles in their household. We know the ins and out of these laws and will make sure to uncover every penny of available insurance for victims of pedestrian traffic accidents!
Also, we utilize valuable evidence that could include footage from surveillance and street cameras. Camera footage can help prove your pedestrian accident case since it could show undeniable proof of who caused and/or contributed to the accident – either fully or partially.
