Were You Hit While Out Walking?
Taking a walk is sometimes a way to get somewhere and other times, a wonderful way to get exercise and clear your head. Unfortunately, traveling on foot can sometimes end in disaster when drivers are not paying attention. Pedestrian accidents are frequently hit-and-run situations, which only compound the complications in recovery and securing an appropriate settlement.
The Stuckey Firm, LLC, has what it takes to recover compensation, even when the other party cannot be found when you were struck while:
- Walking to work, to school, to a post office or to any other destination
- Jogging, strolling or power walking for exercise
- Crossing a street
- Walking on a trail
- Walking to your car in a parking lot
Rather than fight on your own, retain a lawyer with the skill and experience necessary to properly value your case and get what you are eligible for. We have done it for years in Springfield and throughout Ohio. We look forward to serving you as well.
Dealing With The Unexpected
No one thinks that they are going to be hit by a car, but then suddenly it happens. Maybe you were in the crosswalk when someone ran a red light. Maybe a driver did not see you on your bike and sharply merged into the lane. Maybe you were out jogging in full reflective gear, but it still was not enough.
Injuries from an auto-pedestrian collision can be severe, including:
- Broken bones
- Organ damage
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Catastrophic head and spinal injury
- Severe abrasions
At The Stuckey Firm, LLC, we will do our very best to take care of you during this difficult time. This includes vigorous legal advocacy based on years of experience, as well as a deep and compassionate approach to your recovery.
What If The Careless Driver Just Took Off?
The sad reality is that we see this a lot. Drivers sometimes do not even realize they have hit someone and keep driving, or they are so scared themselves that they flee the scene. Their cowardice and negligence are now your problem.
In these cases, we can pursue an uninsured motorist claim with your insurance company or that of someone you live with. These policies typically cover scenarios where law enforcement cannot find the other party involved in the accident. You will still need aggressive representation, though, as insurance companies will always seek to minimize claims and maximize profits, even at the expense of their own customers.
