Walkers, runners, people in wheelchairs, and those using walkers and motorized carts — don’t stand a chance against a car or a truck. Motorists have no excuse for hitting pedestrians or otherwise causing injuries. If they do, it’s a lousy one, and we will knock it down in court.
At CarluzzoRochkind& Smith, P.C., our attorneys in Manassas have been representing pedestrian accident and other personal injury victims and their families for over 27 years throughout Northern Virginia and the Washington, D.C., area. Our team prepares each of our clients’ unique cases for trial from day one, and we are ready to fight for the full and fair compensation that you deserve.
What Options Do Injured Pedestrians Have?
Whether you were hit in a crosswalk, in a parking lot, in a driveway or walking on the side of the road, the motorist had the responsibility to see you, slow down and avoid causing any sort of injury or threat. Even if you were struck outside of a crosswalk, you still may be able to recover if the driver who struck you had the “last clear chance.”
You have the options to:
- Recover from the driver’s auto insurance coverage
- Your auto insurance coverage
- Call an accomplished personal injury lawyer to maximize the value of your case
Insurance companies will not offer you the full and fair value of your case. The compensation that you truly deserve can only be obtained through the tireless and passionate work of a committed personal injury lawyer.
We will hold the responsible party accountable for negligence, and we will handle all legal aspects of your case. Our lawyers communicate with the insurance companies and all other adverse parties. Regardless of where and how you were injured, you should speak with an experienced lawyer immediately.
What Is Full And Fair Compensation?
The injury compensation that our law firm secures in your case is based on your past, present and future losses and damages. It is determined by medical experts, life planning experts and members of our team. It may include:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Lost income earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Long-term care and disability
- Potential punitive damages against the driver
If you were hit by a drunk, reckless or distracted driver, your chances of recovering punitive damages will be elevated. Our team will address all your legal options with you ahead of time and ensure that you are able to make fully informed decisions in your best interests as your legal case progresses.
We will also help you secure compensation for present costs while your legal case is pending.
