Toledo OH Pedestrian Accident Lawyer
Holding negligent parties responsible when pedestrians are hurt
When you’ve been out walking on the sidewalk, or crossing the street, you probably never thought about it as being particularly dangerous. But every year in Toledo, pedestrians are hit by cars or trucks, resulting in serious injury. The pedestrian accident attorneys at Gervelis Law Firm help injured pedestrians get the compensation they deserve.
Pedestrian accidents in Toledo often happen because of driver negligence. A driver was texting or under the influence of alcohol and didn’t notice a pedestrian. Or a driver was speeding, or driving recklessly, and was unable to stop in time to prevent a crash. Our lawyers hold negligent drivers responsible.
But the driver who caused the crash that left you injured may deny doing anything wrong. And their insurance company will try to pay you as little as possible. They may even blame you for what happened. These are some of the reasons why pursuing compensation after a pedestrian accident can be complicated.
Our legal team knows the obstacles that come up in these types of cases and how to overcome them. We conduct our own investigation of the accident, reviewing police reports, medical records and other related documents. We identify and interview witnesses. We may even bring in accident reconstruction specialists or other experts who can help us prove what happened.
Ready to fight for you
We build a strong case that shows another driver’s negligence caused the accident that led to your injuries. We fight back against attempts by the insurance company to blame you or make your case go away cheaply with a quick settlement. Our goal is to get you the maximum compensation possible.
That includes compensation for all of your related medical expenses – now and in the future. It includes lost wages for the time you were left unable to work because of your injuries. And it may include compensation for other damages as well, such as any disability or disfigurement and pain and suffering.
When insurance companies see the work we have put into a case, and that we are fully prepared to fight them in court, they often see things differently. They can be more willing to sit down and negotiate a settlement. Our attorneys are skilled negotiators who will make sure any final settlement is one that meets your needs.
