Portland is recognized as one of the most pedestrian-friendly cities in the country. However, the city also has its share of pedestrians being struck by cars or tripping and falling at construction sites. Walking is universally considered to be a healthy activity. However, when pedestrians are traveling in unsafe settings, they can be injured due to negligence.
The personal injury claim lawyers at Pickett Dummigan McCall LLP protect the rights of pedestrians injured in serious accidents. Our legal team combines more than 100 years of experience in providing effective and aggressive legal representation that can help you recover from your accident.
Unsafe conditions exist for those who choose walking as their primary mode of transportation. Sidewalks do not exist where they should. City workers or construction companies create hazards while they are working on repair and maintenance projects. Crosswalks are not marked properly at intersections.
In the moments following an accident, you may not think you have a claim. Most pedestrians believe that they have no chance at recovering damages if a vehicle strikes them and drives away. They are more embarrassed at falling on a sidewalk or in the street and attribute the mishap to clumsiness.
Serious injuries require immediate medical attention. Pursuing damages requires you to be equally proactive in seeking legal help. Providing your story while it is fresh in your mind helps us build fact-based injury claims.
At Pickett Dummigan, we conduct in-depth investigations, including visits to the accident site, to identify the party responsible. Options exist if you were the victim of a hit-and-run. We will put together a claim and file it on your behalf against your car insurance provider.
