Car Accident

Pedestrian Accidents

The streets of Boston and the surrounding Massachusetts communities are often filled with activity that poses a very real threat to the safety of pedestrians, who share public streets with cars, trains, buses, bicyclists, and other vehicles. Unfortunately, the rules of the road are not always understood or observed by motorists and the pedestrian right-of-way at stop signs and crosswalks are often ignored, resulting in accidents injuring pedestrians.

Pedestrians have no physical barriers to protect themselves when they are hit by a car, truck, or other vehicles, so they are very susceptible to injury. Pedestrian accidents can result in injuries including:

  • Broken bones
  • Skin burns
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Brain injuries
  • Severe cuts and bruises
  • Fatalities
When a pedestrian is involved in an accident, there are a number of legal implications which can complicate the person's recovery. For instance, who pays medical costs? What about lost wages? And what if the accident is a hit-and-run? Or the injured pedestrian does not have health insurance?

Review: Altman and Altman LLP
  • ★★★★★
    I was coming home from work traveling on 95 south at a complete stop when a Jeep Cherokee traveling 65 MPH hit me from behind. Injuries suffered were a Torn Rotator Cuff, Torn MCL, Blood Clot with Neck and Back damage. I had no idea how complex the process was. Dealing with the Insurance companies, Surgeries, PT, legal issues, doctors and bills. It was overwhelming and time consuming. David Altman stepped took care of everything every step of the way in an incredibly professional caring way. He was quick to respond to any questions or concerns including weekends. In 2 years there wasn't one time where a phone call wasn't returned with in 30 minutes. David kept me positive during the most negative times. 2 years later I'm pretty close to being back where I was and David is the reason why. I was able to just focus on getting better and he took care of everything else. He was very aggressive and professional with the insurance companies in this settlement of this case. He kept me up to date on a regular basis through the whole process. I can't thank David and his staff enough and strongly recommend them to anyone.

    I am not very good at words. I was involved in a horrible accident. David and his team (Thank You Asia & Rick) are wonderful, talented and compassionate. If it were not for their help, I don’t believe the outcome would be as good as it is. I am glad my case is settled, Altman & Altman are my go to team from now on. Thank you so very much.
