Strong Legal Help For Victims Of Pedestrian Accidents
What can possibly go wrong when walking or jogging? Unfortunately, there are risks for pedestrians. Far too many pedestrians are hit by cars and other motor vehicles. And even more unfortunately, due to the unprotected nature of someone walking or jogging, the injuries that result from these accidents can be severe or even fatal. It is important to work with an experienced team of lawyers you trust after an accident like this.

We understand the unique challenges and struggles you are facing. We will handle your case with empathy and care, as well as diligence in striving for the maximum compensation.
Why It Is Important To Contact A Lawyer Right Away
The immediate aftermath of a pedestrian accident is a critical time. Not only are you recovering physically and mentally, or perhaps mourning the loss of someone you love, but you also have financial matters to consider.
An insurance company representative will be calling you very shortly after the accident. The common move for insurance companies is to make settlement offers to policyholders very quickly after accidents. Insurance companies seem like miraculous help in a difficult time. They make an offer that seems very generous, and victims feel like the financial problems are solved.
However, in almost every case, the offers made by insurance agents are woefully inadequate to cover the true costs of your damages and losses. Although your immediate medical care will probably be covered by the settlement offer, the offer will not cover your long-term expenses.
At Protzman Law Firm, our lawyers will fight to make sure you get full compensation for:
- All of your medical expenses now and the medical expenses that will continue through the rest of your life
- Lost wages, any lack of ability to work, any time you might need to take a lesser paying job as a result of your injuries
- Emotional distress, which can include the immediate pain and suffering but also the costs of caring for any ongoing trauma you might experience, including psychological treatment and prescription medication to handle any post-traumatic stress disorder or other issues that may arise
