Many drivers do not remember or understand the rules of the road regarding pedestrians. In Massachusetts, a car or truck is required to stop for pedestrians who are in the crosswalk or in the roadway.

At Alekman DiTusa, LLC, we represent individuals who sustain injuries as pedestrians. When you visit our law office in Springfield, Massachusetts, you will find attorneys and staff who seek to provide personalized and caring service for all clients and who believe that every client is important.

If our attorneys take your case, there are no legal fees unless and until we get you compensation.

Representative case: A 17-year-old pedestrian was struck by a motorist while crossing the street within the confines of the marked crosswalk. She sustained a fractured leg and fractured arm that required permanent internal fixation. We helped her obtain a settlement of $185,000.

Legal Help for Serious Pedestrian Accident Injuries

Pedestrian accidents tend to be serious and are occasionally fatal, in which case a family member could file a wrongful death claim. If you are a pedestrian struck by a car, bus or truck, please consider the following:

We can make a claim against a driver or motorist even if he or she is uninsured.
We can make a claim against a government entity (city, county or state) if a crosswalk, traffic signal or other crossing mechanism is at fault.
We can make a claim against your own insurance if the motorist is underinsured or uninsured.
We cannot make a claim at all if you “wait and see” if an injury gets worse and do not seek medical treatment.
