Albany Pedestrian Accident Attorneys

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), over half of traffic related fatalities are pedestrians – more than 63% were hurt from vehicle accidents.

When a loved one or family member dies, or you suffer a personal injury when struck while out for a walk or run, it is important that you call the attorneys at Anderson, Moschetti and Taffany. Wrongful death of a loved one or serious injuries from an accident could change the course of your life forever.

Suffering from a Pedestrian Accident? Get the Help You Deserve

As in many other cities, Albany area cyclists, cars and pedestrians, all have to share the streets and follow the rules of the road. A moment’s distraction at a light can cause a vehicle to collide with a pedestrian, creating tragic consequences. Because pedestrians do not have the protection of a car’s structure around them, the results of such a collision can create a lifetime of physical disability and pain.

Injuries resulting from a pedestrian accident include:

  • multiple fractures
  • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
  • spinal cord injuries – including paralysis, fractures, paraplegia, quadriplegia
  • amputated limbs
  • coma
  • death

Even if a vehicle is moving slowly, the impact of an individual striking the ground could cause fractures or organ damage. The medical costs could quickly escalate to thousands of dollars, and continue to climb long into the future. Physical therapy, disability equipment, and loss wages may result after your accident. The resources required to restore your health may make you feel frustrated and discouraged. Our attorneys will work for you to get the compensation you deserve.

Albany Pedestrian Accident Attorneys Protect Your Rights

A number of factors can result in a pedestrian accident. Often an accident occurs from driver negligence but other factors can contribute to injure individuals:

  • Weather conditions
  • Poor road conditions
  • Poor lighting conditions
  • Lack of appropriate road signs and traffic signals
  • Lack of pedestrian separation areas (sidewalks, overpasses, medians)

It only takes one of these conditions for a driver to lose control of a vehicle and hit an unsuspecting pedestrian. When you have been injured, it is imperative you get the help of Anderson, Moschetti and Taffany. When your case goes to trial, you have to be prepared for the worst. When the opposing party’s insurance company offers you only a fraction of the money you deserve to be compensated for pain, suffering and lost wages and medical expenses, you need to rely on a legal team who has the experience and the skills to fight for more.
