Crosswalk Injury Attorney in Boston

Pedestrian Accident Lawyer in Boston

In 2013, approximately 21% percent of all Massachusetts motor vehicle-related deaths involved a pedestrian. Many of the pedestrians victimized by car accidents were legally in a crosswalk at the time of the collision.

If you or a loved one were struck by a motor vehicle while crossing the street in or near the crosswalk, call Michael Kelly Injury Lawyers for assistance with handling your claim. In Massachusetts, pedestrians may be able to recover large sums in compensation for their injuries. Many studies suggest that Massachusetts juries are sympathetic toward pedestrians, and pedestrians in a crosswalk in particular.

Because accidents between a motor vehicle and a pedestrian can inflict massive injuries on the pedestrian, it is advised to contact a good pedestrian accident lawyer in Boston as close in time to the accident as possible. Our attorneys move quickly to conduct investigations, collect evidence, and interview witnesses. From our first discussion with the driver’s insurance carrier, we make it clear that we will not bend or break while representing your rights. We do our homework, and insurance companies know it. At Michael Kelly Injury Lawyers, we are proud to report that in many cases, our investigations yield thousands of extra dollars in pre-lawsuit settlement negotiations.

If you have been hit by a car while in a crosswalk, you will need competent, diligent, and aggressive representation to get you compensation for your likely expensive medical bills, time away from work, and pain and suffering. Our firm’s attorneys have established a reputation around Massachusetts, and with insurance companies in particular, as lawyers who will not accept unfair offers on behalf of our clients.

Common Causes of Crosswalk Accidents

Crosswalk accidents have many causes. In our experience, most of these accidents result from inattentive driving. A few reasons crosswalk accidents most frequently occur include:

  • Inattentive or negligent driving
  • Texting while driving
  • Turning left into a pedestrian
  • Talking on the phone while driving
  • Eating, drinking, or doing make-up while driving
  • Becoming distracted by the radio or something else on the road
  • Driving at excessive speeds in high-volume pedestrian areas
  • Drunk driving

Crosswalk Accident Injuries

As previously mentioned, because pedestrians are so much less protected than car accident victims inside a vehicle, the injuries are often catastrophic and debilitating. The injuries suffered by pedestrian accident victims in a crosswalk are varied. Injuries we see often, however, include:
