Do I Really Need to Hire a Milwaukee Pedestrian Accident Attorney?
In far too many pedestrian accidents, the injured pedestrian does not feel the need to contact a qualified pedestrian accident attorney. In Milwaukee and just about everywhere else, this can be a huge mistake. Pedestrians who are hit by cars, motorcycles or other vehicles and who then try to deal with insurance companies on their own will often find themselves inadequately compensated for their injuries and suffering.
If you are a pedestrian who was hit by a car, contact Gebhard Law Office for a qualified pedestrian accident lawyer. As an accomplished Milwaukee pedestrian accident attorney, Karl Gebhard pursues all avenues of compensation to get his clients the largest compensations he can.
How Many People Are Hurt or Die in Pedestrian Accidents Every Year?
You might be surprised how many people are injured in pedestrian accidents annually. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, nearly 70,000 pedestrians are injured in car accidents every year. In addition, nearly 15% of all traffic fatalities occur during pedestrian accidents because pedestrians are at increased risk of suffering life-threatening and life-limiting injuries from auto accidents.
Pedestrians may be sideswiped by cars in parking lots, at crosswalks, or while jogging. Pedestrians may be hit by cars that lose control and veer off the road. And, because they themselves are not protected by the body of a car, pedestrians are at increased risk of suffering major physical damage during a car accident.
When pedestrian accidents happen, pedestrians have the same right to seek just compensation for their injuries as any other accident victim. In Milwaukee, the pedestrian accident attorney Karl Gebhard of Gebhard Law Office can be counted on to pursue every avenue possible to get just compensation for injured pedestrians.
