NEW HAVEN PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENT LAWYER
PEDESTRIANS STRUCK BY MOTOR VEHICLES
One moment a person is crossing the street and then there is the chaos of screeching brakes, shouting voices and sirens. New Haven pedestrian accidents are among the most traumatic and most serious. As a victim, you were completely vulnerable to a two-ton car or truck regardless of all safety precautions you took, and you are vulnerable again in a legal process that seems to desire to blame the victim.
At the LoRicco Law Firm, we fiercely protect the rights of pedestrians who have been struck by cars. We will push for maximum compensation for disabling injuries or tragic death and counter any attempt by the driver to avoid responsibility.
Please contact us immediately if you, your child or another family member was hit by a motor vehicle.
EXTENSIVE EXPERIENCE WITH PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENTS IN CONNECTICUT
Our firm has represented car accidents victims in the New Haven area and the Shoreline for over 50 years. We know the steps necessary to preserve evidence and protect our clients’ rights. We anticipate the legal issues and hardships victims and families will face in the aftermath.
Our New Haven pedestrian accident lawyers in crosswalks, school zones, bus stops, residential streets, walking path crossings, parking lots and other areas where drivers have a clear duty to drive with caution. We have handled cases of pedestrian knockdowns at uncontrolled or unlit intersections, in the middle of a block, or other scenarios in which the driver may claim the walker or runner was to blame.
We focus on the conduct of the driver. Was he or she speeding or driving aggressively? Intoxicated? Distracted by a cellphone? Our firm has the resources to hire professional investigators who can reconstruct accidents to establish that the driver was solely or chiefly at fault. Our lawyers are also skilled at interviewing (and cross-examining) witnesses whose observations may be key to the case.
DEDICATED TO MAKING A DIFFERENCE
We know that a quick settlement will not serve the needs of a family coping with long-term or permanent injuries. We stand up for fair and just compensation that covers past, present and future medical care, lost income, rehabilitation, pain and suffering and other special needs.
