With summer in Milwaukee comes warm weather and the need to get out and enjoy our highly walkable city. Unfortunately, with the increase in pedestrians in summer combined with our busy streets comes the danger of vehicle/pedestrian accidents. In these extremely serious cases, it’s important to know your rights, and Domnitz and Domnitz are your best bet for Milwaukee Pedestrian Accident Attorneys.
Because pedestrians have no protection against vehicles, even a minor accident can result in serious injury. A car that bumps a pedestrian lightly can cause that person to fall and break a bone or suffer a brain injury. Of course, some accidents are more devastating. Pedestrians may be run over or pinned against another object, suffering catastrophic or fatal injuries.
Pedestrian victims hold a special advantage in these cases, since pedestrians are particularly vulnerable and have the right of way in most vehicle/pedestrian situations. Simply put, vehicles should always yield to pedestrians, and vehicle operators who fail to do so are at fault. Too many drivers fail to watch the road for pedestrians, and the pedestrians are the ones who suffer.
If you’re the unfortunate victim of a pedestrian/vehicle accident, you need to know your rights. Although a case of this nature may seem straightforward, you’ll need an experienced attorney to ensure the driver’s insurance company compensates you fairly. Even in cases in which the driver was clearly at fault, insurance companies are notorious for cheating the victims out of their rightful compensation. At Domnitz and Domnitz, our deep experience in defending car accident victims from crooked insurance companies enables us to achieve maximum results for our clients.
We represent pedestrians who are injured by all types of vehicles, including cars, trucks, delivery vans, school buses, city buses and taxis. Pedestrian accidents occur on city streets,
at bus stops, in parking lots and garages, at intersections, school crossing zones, on sidewalks, in driveways, and anywhere else a vehicle may come in contact with a pedestrian. Whether it’s a hit-and-run or if the driver is cooperative, you need effective representation to maximize your compensation and allow you to begin the healing process.
