Shrewsbury Attorney for Pedestrian and Bicycle Accidents Pedestrians and bicyclists have certain rights when traveling along public roadways or crossing busy intersections. When these rights are ignored, drivers can be held financially responsible for the serious injuries or disabilities that may result. Pursuing compensation, however, can be legally complex and difficult, especially when you are trying to recover. At the Law Office of James A. Maniatis, we focus on one thing — help you recover. We will advocate on your behalf to obtain maximum compensation from all liable parties. Whether you were injured along the roadway, in a crosswalk or a public parking lot, we have the experience and in-depth knowledge to protect your rights. We represent clients in Worcester and throughout the surrounding areas of Massachusetts. Building a Strong Claim Following a Pedestrian Accident Pedestrian accidents do not just occur along busy roads or urban areas. Many pedestrian accidents happen in parking lots, crosswalks, driveways or side streets. Depending on the nature of the accident and speed involved, pedestrian accidents can result in very serious injuries, including:
- Severe back injuries
- Spinal cord damage
- Knee or shoulder injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Broken bones
Whatever the case, we will protect your rights and seek compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages and — most importantly — the pain and suffering you have endured. If necessary, lawyer James Maniatis will work with top medical specialists to ensure you receive the care you need, as well as accident reconstruction engineers, occupational therapists, economists and other experts to build a strong claim. What if I Was Involved in a Hit-and-Run Accident? If you were involved in a hit-and-run accident, you may feel like you have no recourse to obtain benefits of your injuries as a pedestrian. However, if you own a car and have car insurance or homeowners’ insurance, you may be able to obtain benefits through your own personal injury protection (PIP) coverage. We will review all of your options to help you obtain the compensation you need. Contact Us for a Free Initial Consultation Our firm operates on a contingency basis.
