When joggers, bicyclists, walkers and other pedestrians are hit by a car or truck, it is almost inevitable that the crash will result in severe or disabling injuries to the crash victim. A combination of factors, such as the force of the vehicle against the unprotected limbs of the pedestrian, can cause the pedestrian to suffer immediate, life-altering damage such as:

  • Head or brain damage (traumatic brain injury)
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Amputation due to legs getting pinned
  • Internal injuries
  • Fatal injuries

At the Springfield law firm of Ross & Ross, our attorneys have sincere compassion for clients dealing with the aftermath of a tragic accident. Whether our client was involved in a bike crash or a pedestrian accident, we investigate the accident and determine what legal remedies are available.

While our attorneys recognize that we cannot take away the pain our clients are enduring or the catastrophic injuries they are faced with, we can pursue compensation against liable parties.

  • Drunk driving accidents: When pedestrians are hit by a drunk driver, we pursue negligence claims as well as dram shop liability claims if an establishment over-served liquor to the drunk driver.
  • Hit and run accidents: Frequently pedestrians are struck by drivers who flee the scene. We pursue compensation through uninsured motorist claims.
  • Other negligence accidents: Whether the accident involved a reckless driver who drove up on the sidewalk, an inattentive driver who failed to yield at a crosswalk, or a careless driver who failed to watch for children in the road, our attorneys have the experience to pursue claims for such negligence.

If you or a loved one has been involved in a pedestrian accident or bicycle accident in western Massachusetts, please contact our Springfield law firm and learn why our lawyers have been trusted since 1931.
