Vigorous Advocacy for People Injured in Pensacola Pedestrian Accidents
Walking should be a healthy activity, not a risky one
Do you think the most dangerous place for pedestrians is the crowded streets of Manhattan? Think again. Florida has the second highest rate in the nation of pedestrian fatalities (in fact, Orlando ranks first among all cities). And whether you run or jog for fitness or commute to work on foot or by bike, you are vulnerable to distracted drivers, people who open car doors without looking, and those who race through red lights or fail to stop for pedestrians in the crosswalk.
At Baker & Baker, an AV® rated, results-oriented law firm, we have helped pedestrians file personal injury lawsuits in Pensacola for the harm they suffered because of the negligence or reckless behavior of drivers. Many of our clients were referred to us by those we have helped in the past.
We treat injured pedestrians with respect and compassion. What’s more, our thorough knowledge of personal injury laws in Pensacola and throughout the Gulf region helps protect you from the risk of a low settlement — including overlooked components of loss and overlooked sources of coverage. Your own auto or homeowner’s insurance may cover the shortfall of an uninsured motorist’s liability coverage, for instance.
The importance of medical and physical evidence in a pedestrian accident injury claim
To prove liability in your personal injury suit, we work with experts who can help us establish the facts. Prompt investigation of the scene is important in a pedestrian accident case. Damage to a car or other vehicle is often minor and can be easily repaired or disguised, so we move quickly to preserve and analyze evidence that may be crucial in establishing liability.
The most important reason to seek medical help immediately after a pedestrian accident is to tend to injuries, of course. But medical records also can be part of the complex evidence that can help us maximize your compensation. Typical injuries include:
- Knee injuries, leg fractures or severe ankle sprains.
- Shoulder trauma, including brachial plexus nerve damage.
- Head injuries, including serious concussions or traumatic brain injury.
- Neck injuries and back injuries, including spinal cord damage leading to paralysis.
We also know that the very young are among the most vulnerable pedestrians. If your son or daughter was injured, we can help you receive compensation to address the child’s injuries.
