Cleveland Wrongful Death Lawyers
When a pedestrian is hit by a motor vehicle, the accident typically results in serious injuries. The victim may suffer brain injuries, spine injuries or, in the most serious cases, wrongful death. When these accidents are caused by an act of negligence, the victim or the victim's family may have the right to take action and seek compensation.
Pedestrians Have the Right of Way
When a pedestrian is crossing the street in a crosswalk, the pedestrian typically has the right of way. Drivers of cars and trucks must yield. Unfortunately, while drivers watch for other cars, they sometimes do a poor job of watching for pedestrians. They take right turns into crosswalks while people are walking across the street. They drive out of parking lots or driveways and hit pedestrians on the sidewalk. These drivers should be held responsible.
The board-certified Ohio pedestrian accident lawyers at Gervelis Law Firm take pride in holding negligent drivers responsible and helping pedestrian accident victims get the settlements or verdicts they need to cover all of their financial needs.

Fighting Back Against Low-Ball Insurance Offers in Ohio
Insurance adjusters move quickly in these cases — so should you. They will look for ways to avoid having to provide you with all the compensation you need. They may take advantage of the fact that you do not have a full understanding of all of the compensation you are entitled to. Our personal injury attorneys can help you by letting you know how much compensation you should get and making certain that the insurance company does not low-ball you into accepting much less than your case is truly worth. Talk to us before you talk to the insurance company.
