When we are walking or jogging on the sidewalks or roads in Iowa’s towns and cities, we do not expect to become the victim of reckless drivers. Pedestrian accidents are far too common in our state and are often caused by inattentive, negligent or speeding drivers. In some cases, the vehicle operator is found to have been drunk or talking on a cell phone.
Pedestrian accidents can also be caused by hazardous walking surfaces such as uneven sidewalks or badly maintained city stairs. These types of accidents, sometimes called trip and fall accidents, are often the result of negligent property maintenance. In such cases, it is possible to hold the government or the property owner responsible. Especially for the elderly, these accidents can result in serious injuries, such as head injuries and broken bones.
Whatever the situation, if you or a loved one has been injured in such an accident, it is crucial that you get the assistance of an Iowa injury lawyer. At McGuire Law, PLC, the legal team takes these accidents personally and will fight relentlessly for maximum compensation for any injuries suffered.
Contact us at your earliest convenience to get started!
Our firm knows that ever case is unique. This means that the circumstances surrounding the accident and the victim’s injury must be thoroughly reviewed by a knowledgeable Mason City personal injury lawyer. At our firm, Attorney James P. McGuire can help you determine the amount of compensation you are eligible for.
Should you be offered a settlement directly from an insurance company after your accident, it is urged that you do not discuss the settlement or your injuries with the insurance company’s claims adjuster or other personnel. There have been many situations in which a discussion without the assistance of an attorney led to the victim not being able to recover the full amount of compensation to which the individual was entitled.
Our legal team is attentive, dedicated and exceptionally skilled in all types of personal injury cases, including pedestrian accidents.
Contact us today so we can begin helping you seek compensation for losses such as medical bills, lost wages and physical pain and suffering.
