Helping Victims of Pedestrian Accidents
There is something especially deplorable about pedestrian accidents. This often includes hit-and-run accidents. Not only was a driver negligent in hitting a vulnerable pedestrian, but he or she chose not to stop and help. The lapsed time in getting help can sometimes mean the difference between life and death.
As a pedestrian accident victim, it is likely a daily struggle. You feel helpless not being able to go to work. The medical bills and insurance issues are confusing and overwhelming. You are not sure if you should get a lawyer. Aren’t lawyers expensive?
We Don’t Get Paid Unless You Get Paid
At the Law Offices of Elling & Elling, we offer our personal injury clients a free initial consultation from the start. From there, if an injury victim decides to retain our services, we then work on a contingency fee basis. This means that as your attorney we do not get legal fees from you unless we recover damages on your behalf. This is practically a no-risk situation.
Our father-son team of lawyers has over 50 years of combined legal experience. Utilizing our fierce negotiation skills, we seek maximum compensation on behalf of our pedestrian accident clients. Furthermore, we go beyond just that. We are interested in helping you get the medical attention you need so you can heal and move on with your life.
Hit by a Car? Did the Driver Leave the Scene?
One of the most common types of pedestrian accident situations is when a person is walking in a crosswalk and a motor vehicle fails to stop, as it is legally required to do, to yield to the pedestrian. The pedestrian is struck and seriously, sometimes fatally injured. Instead of simply and appropriately calling 911, the driver just keeps going, afraid of the liability.
These are more than just civil and criminal implications. This is a moral liability. We are here to seek justice for you and your family after such a terrible accident. One of our seasoned lawyers will be the one to speak to you directly. We pride ourselves on the close, one-on-one personal attention we give our clients. You don’t have to worry about talking to a paralegal or legal assistant. You will speak and work directly with an experienced personal injury lawyer.
