Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrian accidents often leave victims with the most debilitating injuries, as they are vulnerable and have no protection from a collision. Recovery from such injuries usually takes years and requires extensive treatment.

At Juzkiw Law, our team is committed to providing injured pedestrians compassion and competent legal advocacy. Stefan Juzkiw has dedicated his entire career with years of experience to helping clients secure maximum compensation for their injuries. Result that matter.

Seeking Compensation after a Crosswalk Accident or Hit and Run

  •  You have options whether you have been struck by a vehicle while crossing the street, in a parking lot, or walking on the sidewalk. It is important to note that you do not have to be in a vehicle at the time of a collision to receive compensation available to cover costs and to secure recovery.
  • The first avenue is to secure compensation through standard insurance coverage. Your own auto insurance policy, if you own a vehicle, or are a dependent of someone in your home who drives, will provide benefits in the event that you are struck by a vehicle whether the driver is insured, or is an uninsured driver, or in the event of a hit and run. In the event that you do not have a vehicle of your own, if the driver who struck you has a valid policy of insurance, their policy may provide benefits.
  • The second avenue is through the Motor Vehicle Accident Claims Fund (MVAC) provided by the government as a way to provide compensation in situations where neither the driver of the vehicle or injured person nor their dependent has no standard insurance. Accident Benefits are provided by the MVAC in this circumstance.
  • Last, a victim of a pedestrian accident can bring a lawsuit against the at-fault driver or negligent parties. In this type of claim, you can pursue compensation for your future and past wage loss, out of pocket/future care costs, medical and pain and suffering, among others.
