The pedestrian always has the right of way but not every driver seems to know and acknowledge it. If you have been struck by a car, truck, bus, or another motor vehicle while you were walking down the street or crossing an intersection, you may be able to receive financial compensation with the help of Casey Law Offices, S.C. and our Milwaukee pedestrian accident lawyers. Known for our tenacity and fierce representation, our law firm has gained a reputation for excellence.
Why should you work with our team? Consider some of our accolades:
Your comfort and care are our number one priority. To remove the stress of litigation off your shoulders, our Milwaukee personal injury lawyers work on contingency fees, meaning you do not pay anything upfront and nothing out-of-pocket; we only accept legal fees if we win your case, and even then we only receive a portion of your winnings. This means you never pay more than you earn!

A majority of pedestrian accident cases are caused by drivers who do not pay attention to the road or engage in careless behavior.
The most common types of pedestrian accidents include:
Even if you were jaywalking or crossing at an unmarked crosswalk, do not automatically assume that you are unable to recover compensation. You should always talk to an attorney first to determine whether you still have a case. Wisconsin has comparative negligence laws that may still allow you to recover some compensation.
Motorists must use extra caution when driving around intersections or in heavily populated areas. Pedestrians, unlike drivers, do have the right to use their cell phones and other devices while walking, engaging them in distractions that can cause them to not notice an accident that is about to happen. Furthermore, pedestrians can do little to nothing to prevent an accident that is caused by a negligent driver, yet they will suffer the most catastrophic of injuries.
If a loved one has been struck and killed by a negligent driver, surviving family members can file a wrongful death lawsuit. The damages in a wrongful death claim can cover final medical expenses, funeral and burial costs, income the decedent should have earned had the pedestrian accident never occurred, and the loss of companionship family members now feel.
At Casey Law Offices, our Milwaukee pedestrian accident attorneys treat all of our clients like close friends or family members. Through this dedication and personal attention, we believe that your chances of finding both peace of mind and success are increased dramatically.
