Pedestrian accidents: Car turning right on busy street about to hit pedestrian

Maine Pedestrian Accident Lawyers

Securing full compensation for pedestrian accident victims in Maine

A mother and her child are struck by a driver while walking across a street in their hometown. A distracted driver runs over a construction worker who is placing cones on the highway. A teenager is hit by a driver in a shopping center parking lot.

Every year in the U.S. nearly 5,000 pedestrians are killed, and 70,000 injured, after being struck by motor vehicles according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. That translates into one pedestrian injury every 8 minutes. We also know these figures are likely underestimated, because only a fraction of pedestrian crashes that cause injury are ever recorded by police.

Pedestrians should feel safe while walking near and across our roadways. One way to improve safety is to hold drivers accountable when their negligence causes injury to others. Our lawyers are experts in the laws that protect pedestrians, we support your right to share the road, and we would be honored to serve as your legal advocate.

We can turn the tables in your favor. While our lawyers aggressively work to maximize your financial award, our caring, responsive staff can help reduce stress in your recovery process.
