Perona, Langer, Beck, Serbin and Harrison protects the rights and interests of pedestrians who have been hit by negligent drivers.
While some pedestrians do cause accidents through their own carelessness, the vast majority of pedestrian accidents are caused by speeding, distracted, drunk, or otherwise negligent drivers. Sadly, pedestrians can be seriously hurt or even killed when struck by a car. Even if the car was traveling at a relatively low speed, the pedestrian can still suffer grievous bodily injury as they hit first the car and then the ground. This can lead to a need for significant compensation covering:
- Immediate medical bills
- Future medical treatment
- Short-term or long-term nursing care
- Rehabilitation and therapy
- Lost wages
- Lost earning power
- Emotional distress
- Pain and suffering
- Death benefits (for wrongful death cases)

Now You May Wonder…
…What If I’ve Already Been Offered a Settlement? Do I Still Need an Attorney?
Absolutely. It is highly unlikely that the settlement offer covers all the damages related to your pedestrian accident. In order to find out, you will want to consult a knowledgeable pedestrian accident attorney like Perona, Langer, Beck, Serbin and Harrison. We can help you calculate your damages and compare this figure to the offer you have received. If the offer is inadequate—and it probably is—we can help you place a counteroffer to negotiate for a better deal. Plus, with an attorney on your team you can feel confident knowing that if negotiations are not successful, you can always file a lawsuit.
