Protecting the Rights of Injured Pedestrians
Pedestrians hit by cars and trucks often don’t believe that they have the same rights as drivers. When drivers fail to stop for pedestrians in the crosswalk or hit people getting out of their cars or walking on a shoulder or sidewalk, they can be held accountable.
At Tremont Sheldon Robinson Mahoney in Bridgeport, Connecticut, we bring together a team of experienced personal injury lawyers who fight for the victims of all types of motor vehicle crashes, including those involving pedestrians.
Experience With Hit-and-Run Pedestrian Accidents
The lawyers of Tremont Sheldon Robinson Mahoney have experience working with pedestrian victims of hit-and-run accidents. The firm has also recovered money for bicyclists who were hit by cars that fled the scene.
We have earned a reputation for holding reckless drivers accountable for their carelessness.
People who are hurt as a result of a hit-and-run driver can still make a claim for their losses if they have car insurance. Car insurance policies are required under the law to provide coverage if the policyholder is injured by another motorist who does not have enough insurance or does not have any insurance. This would apply to situations where the driver who causes the collision flees the scene.
Whether the driver who hit you stayed at the scene or fled, you need an attorney by your side who can help you navigate through the complex insurance claims process. Our attorneys can protect your right to file a claim or take legal action to help you secure the compensation you need for your injuries.
