Pedestrian Accidents

The consequences of pedestrian accidents are often catastrophic. Brain and spinal cord injuries can result, and victims and family members may not know where money will come from to pay the medical bills.

The firm has access to experts and investigators who can help establish what actually occurred. Every witness will be interviewed by the firm to make certain no evidence or information is lost.

Will Insurance Cover My Injuries?

If you are injured in a pedestrian accident, don't make the assumption that there will be no insurance coverage available to compensate you for your injuries. Though the options may not seem clear, George Haskell understands how insurance policies operate and how benefits such as uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage may be available for you. He can explore a number of secondary policies that will provide coverage if a claim is made. It could even include an uninsured motorist policy belonging to the individual in whose residence you reside.

As a lawyer, George Haskell understands the importance of taking prompt action in pedestrian or bicycle injury matters. There are a large number of deadlines related to insurance claims that need to be met. The Law Office of George O. Haskell, IV, will act quickly to prevent claims from being denied.
