Pedestrian Accident Attorneys in Philadelphia, PA
Some of the most serious accidents that plague the streets of Philadelphia occur when a motor vehicle collides with a pedestrian.

Pedestrian Accidents in Pennsylvania
Pedestrian accidents often have some of the most devastating results because of the severity of the injuries typically sustained. You may be suffering from broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, paralysis, lacerations, and other serious health concerns. When injuries are so severe, it takes time for the financial, physical, and emotional burdens to heal. One of the major concerns for the victims of both hit and run and pedestrian accidents is insurance coverage. Many of our clients are uninsured, underinsured, or have been struck by a party without insurance coverage. With insurance companies looking out for their own interests, it is easy to feel like you have nowhere to turn. We will help you navigate the challenges ahead, making sure your rights are protected and your medical costs are taken care of.
Recovering Compensation After an Accident
Pennsylvania has a fund that will pay insurance costs in many hit and run and pedestrian accidents. Even if the party that hit you has no insurance or leaves the scene of the accident, you could be eligible to collect benefits from an Assigned Claims Plan (ACP). With so many factors to consider after a hit and run accident, it helps to have an attorney looking out for your best interests. Whether you suffered your injury as a pedestrian, on a bicycle, or in a car, we work with experts in every field to make sure you get the medical care and the full compensation you deserve. With over one hundred years of shared experience, let us put our resources to work for you. In a successful lawsuit against the negligent party, you may also be able to recover additional economic and non-economic compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, loss of enjoyment of life, emotional distress, pain and suffering, and more.
