Pedestrian Accident Lawyer Roswell, GA
If you have been struck by a motor vehicle, bicycle, or even a scooter while you were walking, it is important to schedule a risk-free consultation with the experienced legal team at Hernan Law Firm after you’ve received necessary medical attention. Depending on the circumstances surrounding your accident and the extent of your injuries, you may be entitled to significant compensation at this time. This remains true even if you were partially responsible for the accident in question.
It is important to understand that even if the individual who struck you was blameless, you may be in a position to sue other entities for the harm that you have suffered. Perhaps the city failed to properly install signage that might have prevented your accident or to maintain the road upon which your accident occurred. Perhaps the scooter that struck you was malfunctioning at the time of your collision and its manufacturer may be held liable for your injuries.

We investigate accidents thoroughly to better ensure that our clients are able to hold anyone who is partially or totally responsible for the harm they’ve suffered financial responsible to the fullest possible extent as allowed by state and/or federal law.
