Injured Pedestrians in Washington, Maryland, and Virginia

When you walk around your neighborhood, you expect to be safe. Crosswalks, stop signs and traffic signals all help to protect you from vehicles in the roadway. Unfortunately, sometimes drivers ignore red lights or don't stop at crosswalks. In these situations, pedestrians can be hit and may suffer serious injuries. The Washington personal injury attorneys at Law Offices of Stein & Rosenberg provide skilled legal representation to injured pedestrians and their families.

Recovering compensation after an accident

In some locations, pedestrians can recover their medical expenses from their own insurance company or the insurer of a family member. In other states, pedestrians recover from the driver who was at fault or that driver's insurer. In most states, victims who have suffered serious injuries are able to recover damages in a lawsuit. These damages usually cover the cost of medical expenses, lost past wages and loss of earning capacity. Compensation for mental anguish and physical pain are often awarded in a lawsuit or agreed upon in a settlement. Some states also allow for punitive damages when the driver was intoxicated. The experienced personal injury litigators at our firm will help you understand your rights under the applicable laws and work to get you justice.
