Pedestrian Accident Lawyers

Thousands of people each year are injured in pedestrian accidents  because pedestrian accidents are human versus car, the injuries tend to be catastrophic. Pedestrian accidents can be either vehicular or non-vehicular. Vehicular pedestrian accidents typically involve some motor vehicle, while non-vehicular pedestrian accidents are usually the result of property defects. A car accident involving a pedestrian occurs as a pedestrian attempts to cross the street, even while in a crosswalk. In some cases, it is difficult to determine whether the driver or the pedestrian is at fault. Therefore, it is essential that victims of pedestrian accidents contact Robinson and Associates as quickly after the accident as possible so that our attorneys can begin an investigation and immediately contact all potential witnesses.

Helpful Information If You Or A Loved One Has Been Injured

According to reports, one of the common causes of motor vehicle fatalities in accidents involving pedestrians on crosswalks. Many of these accidents occur on the weekends during the evening hours. Often drivers fail to stop for pedestrians in crosswalks or fail to see the pedestrian in the crosswalk before hitting them. Statistics indicate that young people under the age of 16 are the most likely victims of pedestrian accidents. However, while the elderly are less likely to be involved in pedestrian accidents, they are more likely to die as a result of injuries sustained in these accidents. While many pedestrian accidents occur at intersections with crosswalks, many accidents happen on the roadways and streets.

Pedestrians should take great caution when crossing the street, while they are in crosswalks, and when they are walking along the nation’s roadways. A pedestrian’s legal rights are severely impacted when they are crossing a street and are not in the crosswalk. Many cases  have found that when a walker is outside the crosswalk at the time of impact with the car, that the victim is contributorily negligent- which in, bars any recovery by the victim or the victim’s family. Both drivers and pedestrians have a responsibility to obey traffic laws, but pedestrians have a greater need to follow the laws and be aware of their surroundings. Speeding is generally a significant factor in pedestrian accidents, and distracted drivers (like texting) are another chief contributor to motor vehicle accidents involving pedestrians. When a driver does not adhere to established motor vehicle laws and acts carelessly with the safety of others, the driver can be charged with negligence or even a criminal offense. If it can be proven that the driver acted negligently and the negligence resulted in injury to another, the driver may be held liable for significant financial damages.

Emergency care after the road accident

Victims of pedestrian accidents may sustain broken bones, head, neck and spine injuries, traumatic brain injury, or permanent scarring.

In some cases, the injuries to the victim are so severe that the victim is unable to recover.

I lost my husband of 30 years in a tragic motorcycle accident. He was my entire world. After the accident I realized he was my entire financial world and that I was in financial trouble. I interviewed many attorneys in Maryland and ultimately chose Robinson & Associates. Mr. Robinson was always available to me and he was very supportive during my dark days. He assured me throughout that I would be fine and in the end, he got me over a million dollars which is now my retirement. Mr. Robinson promised me and he delivered! He got me a new lease on life, avoiding financial ruin and allowed me to retire in Florida. I cannot thank him or his firm enough. This IS the firm you want.

I am a bankruptcy and corporate attorney practicing in several states including Maryland. As I do not practice personal injury law, I refer my seriously injured clients to Robinson & Associates. I have known Mr. Robinson for many years and found his dedication to maximizing results for his clients noteworthy. He is always available both to me and to the clients that I refer. He has made multiple home visits to one on my referrals. My clients appreciate the caring assistance they receive and they love the six-figure results they have received thus far.

I am a disability lawyer in Maryland. I know the injury attorneys in town and I choose to refer my personal injury and accident cases to Bruce Robinson & Associates. I know my clients will be taken care of and the firm will work relentlessly to obtain the best results possible. In one case I referred Mr. Robinson, the recovery was limited for reasons outside the firm's control. Mr. Robinson waived his fee for the benefit of the client despite having worked on the case for nearly two years. In my experience, the Robinson Firm obtains impressive results and they really do care for their clients.

I was in a very serious auto accident which landed me in the hospital for several days and a long painful period of recovery. The insurance company refused to acknowledge or compensate me for the seriousness of my injuries. The defense hired the most aggressive defense firm they could find in Frederick County. I retained Robinson & Associates. We Won! The Judge ended up awarding me well over a quarter million dollars. Evidently, the insurance company hired the wrong firm!

Dear Bruce: Thank you for taking my case and winning BIG! My case sat for several years because nobody would take it. You took it shortly before limitations ran and got what I am told is one of the largest verdicts in Queen Anne’s County [well into six figures]. I am grateful for the late night and weekend meetings. You are a caring and skilled attorney.
