Injured Crossing The Street?
Contact A Boston Pedestrian Accident Lawyer
Boston consistently receives high marks for being one of the most walkable cities in the country. You can walk to Fenway Park, Boston Common and other landmarks in the city. Commuters from Allston to Ashmont can also easily get in and out of Boston on foot using the T and other public transportation.
Unfortunately, pedestrian accidents happen here in Boston too. And when they do, injury victims often sustain serious or even life-threatening injuries. That's because pedestrians and cyclists have little or no protection against serious injuries caused by cars, trucks and other motorized vehicles.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a pedestrian accident in Boston, it's critical that you take immediate legal action. The evidence needed to build a successful case disappears over time. And in most cases, you only have 3 years to take legal action after an accident under Massachusetts law. That's why our Boston pedestrian accident attorneys want to meet with you.

Why do Boston pedestrian accidents happen?
Pedestrian accidents in Boston often occur because the driver did something reckless or dangerous. Common examples include:
- Aggressive drivers who don’t share the road with pedestrians, whether they’re walking alongside a road or crossing a busy street.
- Speeding drivers who don’t have time to slow down and avoid hitting a pedestrian.
- Distracted drivers, especially texting drivers, which can be especially dangerous on Boston’s busy roads.
- Drunk drivers or drivers under the influence of drugs, especially at night or on weekends in many busy Boston neighborhoods.
How did your pedestrian accident happen? Whatever the circumstances, make sure you know your rights. Make sure you talk to a Boston lawyer who will fight for your rights and make sure your pedestrian accident injury claim or lawsuit gets the attention it deserves.

Chelsea, a city north of Boston located between the Orange and Blue Lines of the "T," is the second most densely populated city in the Bay State. Chelsea residents rely on an extensive network of bus stops to get around. But intersections - such as the intersection of Broadway, Hawthorne Street and Washington Avenue - have proved problematic for years due to a number of serious, potentially fatal pedestrian accidents.
Popular among students, tourists and residents looking to shop Harvard Square or take the Red Line to Central for dinner on Mass. Avenue, Cambridge is one of the busiest areas in the Boston metropolitan area. If you live in, work in, or visit Cambridge, you'll likely notice many people on foot. In fact, of communities with more than 100,000 residents in the United States, Cambridge has the highest percentage of commuters who walk to work. But despite efforts to put the needs of pedestrians before motorists, pedestrian accidents still happen far too often. They frequently involve pedestrians crossing the street on a crosswalk or cyclists traveling inside bicycle lanes.
Chinatown, a Boston neighborhood just west of the John F. Kennedy Expressway, is one of the city's most dangerous areas for pedestrians. Chinatown is home to Emerson College at Boylston Street (on the west side) and includes South Station (on the east side). The neighborhood includes many of Boston's busiest streets. Drivers on Essex or Washington Street who fail to pay attention even for a split second may cause a serious Boston pedestrian accident.
With Boston College less than one mile away and the C and D branches of the Green Line providing access to Boston, Brookline’s population of more than 63,000 people have no shortage of public transportation options. Unfortunately, pedestrian accidents can – and do – happen in Brookline, from Coolidge Corner to the countless “T” stops along Beacon Street. When these accidents occur, injured pedestrians need to act fast. That’s where our law firm can help – whether it’s obtaining a copy of your accident report from the Brookline Police Department or filing a pedestrian accident lawsuit on your behalf in Norfolk County Superior Court. You can count on us.
The city of Quincy can be especially dangerous for pedestrians and bicyclists along Hancock Street, where the Red Line and bus routes such as Greenbush and the Kingston/Plymouth Line converge with heavy pedestrian traffic across the street at Quincy College. With a population of more than 100,000 people, Quincy is one of Massachusetts’ 10 largest cities. It’s no surprise that this highly populated area in Norfolk County would see a fair number of accidents involving pedestrians and bicyclists. And when they happen, injured Quincy pedestrians need a lawyer who can fight for them and stand up for their rights.
