We Investigate Pedestrian Accidents.

After being involved in a pedestrian accident, you may not be sure of what happened and why. In these situations, we recommend contacting an experienced pedestrian accident attorney. We will thoroughly investigate the incident, gather evidence regarding what happened and why, and identify the liable party or parties. We will speak with eyewitnesses, review the police report, and gather any photos and video footage available. Our goal is to get to the bottom of what happened and why, and then use the relevant evidence to build a case against the at-fault party.

Can I Recover Punitive Damages for A Pedestrian Accident?

Punitive damages awards tend to be discretionary. Generally, you will not be able to obtain a punitive damages award unless the defendant’s conduct exceeds ordinary negligence. You will have to prove that the behavior constituted malice, oppression, or fraud. In other words, you may be able to obtain a punitive award if the driver intentionally hit you, or if the driver was acting with particularly egregious conduct and a willful or conscious disregard for your safety. In pedestrian accident cases, punitive damages may be awarded if the driver was drunk or fled the scene of the crash.
