Fairfield County Pedestrian Accident Lawyer
Pedestrian accidents in Fairfield County often result in catastrophic injuries or fatalities. Know your rights.
Pedestrians have just as much right to use the road as people who use cars, trucks and motorcycles to get around. Unfortunately, many drivers don't seem to pay as much attention to people walking, jogging or bicycling along the side of the road. That's why so many pedestrian accidents happen in Fairfield County in places like Washington Boulevard in Stamford, Park Avenue in Bridgeport near Sacred Heart University and Norwalk school pick up and drop off areas.
Pedestrian accidents that result in serious or fatal injuries demand attention from an experienced Fairfield County pedestrian accident lawyer at Vishno Law Firm. Attorney Jeremy Vishno has the skills and resources to take on some of the most complex pedestrian injury and wrongful death claims.
How pedestrian accidents happen in Connecticut
Often, drivers who cause pedestrian accidents claim they simply "failed to see" the pedestrian or bicyclist they hit - even if the pedestrian was in a crosswalk or running on the side of the road.
No matter where your pedestrian accident happened, you need an aggressive and experienced attorney on your side, working tirelessly to protect your rights. You need Jeremy Vishno, a pedestrian accident attorney in Fairfield County who understands how pedestrian accidents happen and the steps necessary to get injury victims the compensation they need - and deserve - after an accident.
No pedestrian should have to fear being struck by a vehicle while crossing the street or walking alongside the road. Connecticut law protects pedestrians. According to a new state law, any driver who "fails to exercise reasonable care and causes the serious physical injury or death of a vulnerable user of a public way" faces a fine of up to $1,000. The "vulnerable users" include walkers, highway workers and people who use wheelchairs.
Accidents involving pedestrians and bicyclists are among the most serious types of cases we handle at Vishno Law Firm. Injuries resulting from a crash between a moving vehicle and a pedestrian or bicyclist often cause devastating, potentially life-threatening injuries. Common pedestrian accident injuries involve the following:
- Broken bones
