Pedestrians are very vulnerable out on the road

When a car or truck gets into a motor vehicle accident, there is a plethora of safety options to protect the people inside the vehicles. Airbags, seat belts, and even the frame of the vehicle help to keep the people inside alive and unharmed.

When a motorcycle is involved in an accident, there are fewer options to keep them safe, but at least there are some. Pads for their appendages, heavy jackets to protect their torsos, and hard helmets for their heads can all do a lot to minimize injuries in an accident.

But when a pedestrian is involved in an accident, there are pieces of safety equipment to protect them. They are simply struck, and the rest is up to the human body and luck. Pedestrians are inherently the most at-risk group out on the road, so when they are involved in an accident, they -- or their loved ones -- need to consider their legal options.

In many pedestrian accident cases, there are circumstances that show a driver was negligent or otherwise dangerous when approaching the pedestrian. These cases can lead to a civil lawsuit filed by the pedestrian and his or her loved ones, leading to needed, and just, compensation.

At the Law Offices of L. Ciro Sapetto, we want to help these injured pedestrians hold the negligent people that caused their accident responsible for their actions. We have extensive experience with pedestrian accident cases, and we are passionate about earning you the compensation you need and deserve.
