Drivers have an obligation to operate their vehicles safely and to keep a lookout for pedestrians. When they fail to do so and cause harm, our law firm holds them accountable for their actions against our injured clients.
The Law Offices of Scott N. Bergman, LLC, located in Rockville, Maryland, represents people who have been injured in pedestrian accidents. Our clients include adults and children who were injured in crosswalks, while walking in parking lots or in other situations. Pedestrian impacts have grown in leaps and bounds in the present day. In major cities such as Washington, D.C., or Bethesda, Maryland, for example, drivers pay less attention to the road and more to their addiction of text messaging, talking on the phone, or eating or grooming while driving. As a result, pedestrian accidents and injuries are on the rise.
You Have Options | Talk With An Attorney
If you have been hit by a car or have lost a loved one in a pedestrian accident, talking with an experienced attorney at our Maryland law firm is very important. We will listen to the facts of your case and tell you how the law might apply. We can recommend the best strategy for taking effective action, and we will fight hard to achieve the best possible results for you.
When we investigate personal injury claims, we often discover that the car or truck drivers involved were negligent in many different ways, including:
- Speeding/driving too fast for conditions
- Making lane changes without properly looking or signaling
- Running stop signs or stoplights
- Driving while distracted like with a phone call or text messaging
Hit-And-Run Accidents: When Pedestrians Are Hit On Roadways, Crosswalks And Sidewalks
Attorneys at our firm represent people who have been injured in hit-and-run accidents involving pedestrians. These accidents are more common than many people realize and the causalities are spiking higher with more vehicles on the road than ever before.
People who are injured in hit-and-run pedestrian accidents often feel like they have no options. They do not know whom to take action against, and they often miss work and struggle to pay for medical care or to make ends meet.
When handling pedestrian accident cases, we use our decades of experience and state-of-the-art technology to aid in our pursuit of compensation for our injured clients. Working closely with experts and professionals, such as investigators and medical personnel, we are able to thoroughly prepare your case to negotiate with the opposition. Whenever a favorable outcome cannot be reached through negotiation, we put our litigation skills to work and take your case to trial.
Experienced Former Nurse On Staff
We are able to offer clients the knowledge and experience of a former nurse. Now a paralegal at our firm, she aids our lawyers in aggressively seeking compensation for our clients’ injuries.
