When a runner or a walking pedestrian is struck by a vehicle, catastrophic injuries such as broken bones, shattered limbs, or brain damage often result. Sometimes, the victim of such an accident is killed. Such serious injuries can occur because the victim was exposed to an oncoming vehicle that is far heavier than a human body in a defenseless position.
Runner and general pedestrian accidents happen all the time because drivers of motor vehicles do not pay attention to or think that they do not have to observe the rules of the road. These accidents can result in large medical bills; costs related to lost wages; and depending on the extent of injuries, possibly reduced future earnings. A legal personal injury specialist in pedestrian and runner injuries can protect your legal rights and force involved insurance companies to honor their full compensation and coverage responsibilities.
Insurance companies typically are interested in paying as little as possible to the injured party in a pedestrian or jogger accident. As a result, it is common for the insurance company of the driver that caused the accident to offer “lowball” settlement offers to victims. The attorneys of the law Offices of Steers & Associates are legal experts in handling these cases and aggressively deal with insurance companies to get victims good settlements, or the firm is always ready to take the case to trial if it is in the best interests of the client.

A recent review:
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ I was in an accident where my car was totaled. At first, I thought I could handle things by myself but then my pain began to get much worse. I hired Allen based on the recommendation of a friend and he did not disappoint. He was very fast in answering my calls and emails. He also got me the maximum settlement from the other person’s insurance and then got me compensation from my insurance too. – James
