"Why do I need a lawyer for a pedestrian accident?"

You might think you don't need any legal help if you've been injured in a pedestrian accident in Waterbury. If a driver clearly did something wrong to cause your injury, that driver's insurance company should compensate you for your accident-related expenses.

Unfortunately, accidents often don't work that way. Instead, most insurance companies do everything they can to avoid paying injury victims, even when the driver clearly caused the accident. That's because most insurance companies only care about one thing—making as much money as possible.

Our job is to make sure insurance companies do their job and pay you for your accident. We're not just talking about short-term medical expenses. We consider the long-term impact of an accident. If your pedestrian accident leaves you unable to work for months or maybe even ever again, you deserve to be compensated for lost future earnings. If the insurance company refuses to settle, we’ll be ready to file a pedestrian accident lawsuit on your behalf and fight for a maximum court award.
