Helping recover compensation following a pedestrian accident


No one expects to be involved in an accident. It can be even more shocking and unexpected when an individual suffers severe injuries in a wreck caused by a negligent or reckless driver. In a car accident, victims can suffer serious and traumatic injuries, but the severity of these injuries can increase exponentially in an accident involving a pedestrian and a motor vehicle. Although motorists are taught to drive safely around pedestrians, and rules and regulations have been passed to reduce these collisions, this does not always prevent pedestrian accidents.

A person is unable to stand up to the size and speed of a vehicle. Even in a slow moving crash, a pedestrian can suffer life-altering and debilitating injuries. At the Law offices of James L. O'Rourke, our experienced legal team understands these tragic circumstances, as well as the difficulties that befall victims of a pedestrian accident. Therefore, we are dedicated to serving Connecticut's accident victims so that they understand their legal rights and how best to act on them.

A serious accident, such as a pedestrian crash, can result in a multitude of financial turmoil. The injuries suffered often require extensive medical treatment and necessitate surgery, rehabilitation, and other procedures. The accident is likely to result in mental and emotional damages that may also require treatment. Also, accident victims who are unable to work while they recover can suffer from lost wages. With over 27 years of experience, our law firm has the skills and resources needed to properly calculate financial damages, helping you maximize the potential for our clients' financial recoveries in personal injury claims.

It can hold a negligent party accountable for the incident and help with the recovery of compensation for losses and damages arising from the accident.
