Ohio law requires cars, trucks and other motor vehicles to share the road with pedestrians. While Dayton and surrounding areas feature many pedestrian-friendly sidewalks, pathways and crosswalks, accidents can happen that cause serious disruptions to pedestrians' lives.
The Attkisson Law Firm, LLC, is committed to fighting for justice for accident victims. With over 40 years of combined experience, our attorneys understand how catastrophic accidents between pedestrians and motor vehicles can be. When you suffer a serious or permanent injury, you need a heavy hitter on your side.
Pedestrians can be at a greater risk to serious accidents given their exposure to larger, more powerful vehicles. Common causes of pedestrian-vehicle accidents include:
Poorly marked or timed crosswalks
Failure of vehicles to yield or check blind spots
Lack of sidewalks or safe walking areas
Impaired, distracted or fatigued drivers
Drivers disregarding current weather conditions
When a vehicle strikes a pedestrian, the latter is often blamed for the accident. We understand that this is not always the case and will fight to assert this.
An accident with a motor vehicle can cause injuries, including broken bones, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injury (TBI), internal bleeding and more. While you prioritize your recovery efforts, we will pursue your rights.
We will assist with filing an insurance claim, investigating the cause of the accident and seeking the maximum amount of damages possible. We will hold all negligent or reckless parties responsible, including the driver or even third parties, such as city or state governments, when applicable.
We know how insurers approach these cases and the tactics they employ to pay you less than you are due. We will gather medical records, police reports, witness accounts, and any other documents or reports possible to assert your rights to the full amount of compensation possible.
Our lawyers will hit back at insurance companies and negligent parties to enable you to move forward from this disruptive, stressful event. Do not wait to get a heavy hitter on your side.
