Rhode Island Pedestrian Accident Attorneys

Helping Victims of Pedestrian Accidents in Providence & Middletown

Pedestrians have specific rights under the law and it is the responsibility of every driver to be aware of and to respect them. When drivers fail to acknowledge pedestrians' rights, it can result in serious accidents that end in life-changing or even fatal injuries. If you or a loved one has been injured because of a driver's negligence, you may have grounds to seek compensation in a personal injury claim.

Obtaining fair compensation can be quite complex and insurance companies are notorious for attempting to place the blame on the victims. It is important that you seek the advice of an experienced Rhode Island personal injury lawyer who will fight to obtain the compensation you deserve. With offices in Providence and Middletown, the attorneys at Karns & Kerrison represent injured pedestrians throughout Rhode Island.

Understanding the Rights of a Pedestrian

When most people think of pedestrian accidents, the only thing they think of is a person who was hit by a car while crossing the street. In fact, for the purposes of a personal injury claim, a pedestrian can be considered anyone who is walking across a street, standing on a corner or the side of the road, walking down a sidewalk, or even sitting at a bus stop or business.

The potential injuries victims can suffer from pedestrian accidents can sometimes require a lifetime of care. We take the time to fully understand the extent of your injuries so we can seek the right compensation for all of your current and future needs. We have extensive experience with these claims and we will not allow the insurance company to get away with a lowball settlement.

Do not wait to seek legal representation if you have been injured in an accident. Even if the driver is saying that you were partially to blame, we can still seek some level of compensation for you. Call us to schedule a free case review to learn more about your legal options.

You can reach us locally by calling (888) 281-3100 or contacting us via email to arrange an appointment.
