Houston Pedestrian Injury Lawsuit Attorney

Pedestrian accidents typically occur while crossing streets, but can occur while walking on the side of a street, in parking lots, recreational areas, and when cars crash onto sidewalks. Pedestrians can be injured by cars, trucks, motorcycles, or even bicycles.

Consulting a Houston personal injury attorney about your legal rights and your options to obtain monetary compensation after a pedestrian accident is important. If you or a loved one were recently involved in a traffic accident involving a pedestrian injury, determining how to proceed next will have a significant influence on your ability to recover monetary damages for your personal injuries. At Simon Herbert & McClelland LLP in Houston, we represent people that have been injured in pedestrian accidents at the hands of another.

When a several thousand pound motor vehicle hits a human being at any speed, it doesn’t take a genius to determine that the person being hit will be injured. In fact, the injuries will often be serious and severe, and typically include spinal cord injuries, crushing injuries like fractures and broken bones, back injuries, head and neck injuries, injuries to the internal organs, and in many cases the pedestrian is killed. When pedestrians are injured, working to get the best recovery of damages and monetary compensation can be a matter of the rest of your life. Depending on how serious the injuries are, ongoing medical treatment, long term care, and even inability to work in your profession or trade will require obtaining the most amount of compensation for your damages. If you have lost a loved one in a wrongful death because of a pedestrian accident, the damages will last a lifetime. At Simon Herbert & McClelland LLP we will utilize the best experts to help prove up your case on questions of liability, economic damages, the need for ongoing medical treatment, and any other points necessary to get compensation for your pedestrian accident case. If you have been suffered an accident as a pedestrian, it is essential that you obtain an accident-injury attorney to handle your case. While there isn’t anything in the law that says you can represent yourself, why would you believe that the other party’s insurance company would do any favors for you? They have NO interest in paying you what you deserve.

The Houston accident-injury attorneys at Simon Herbert & McClelland LLP, are prepared to handle pedestrian accident cases from the initial consultation and investigation, through trial preparation, trial, and, if necessary, all appeals. We advocate for our clients to hold those at fault accountable and work hard to get the best results that obtain the most compensation based on the particular case.

The initial consultation is free of charge, and if we agree to handle your case, we will work on your pedestrian accident-injury case on a contingency fee basis, which means we get paid for our services only if there is a monetary recovery of funds. In many pedestrian cases a lawsuit must be filed before an applicable expiration date, known as a statute of limitations so please call right away to ensure that you do not waive your right to possible compensation.
