Drivers have a duty to yield to pedestrians at crossings and to drive with caution wherever foot traffic is expected. Unfortunately, pedestrians pay the price when aggressive or distracted drivers disregard their duty to safety.
The Law Office of John W. Redmann, LLC holds car and truck drivers accountable for injuries to pedestrians. Our founding attorney has represented car accident victims in New Orleans and southeast Louisiana for more than 20 years. Our New Orleans pedestrian accident lawyers have the experience to help you win your case, and secure the compensation you deserve.
While the driver is protected, pedestrians commonly suffer severe or permanent injuries, including broken bones, head trauma and spinal injuries. The medical bills and lost wages mount up, and the road to recovery can be long, hard and uncertain. These problems are compounded when drivers are uninsured or underinsured, or when a panicked or cold-hearted driver speeds off after a pedestrian hit-and-run.
Our law firm promptly investigates and aggressively pursues compensation for the physical, financial and personal impact. Our experienced New Orleans personal injury lawyers have handled every type of pedestrian accident, including adults and children hit by cars:
There may be disagreement about who was at fault. The driver may say the victim jaywalked, crossed against the light or “darted out” into the road. We focus our investigation on the driver’s careless or reckless operation. Was he or she speeding or distracted by a cellphone? Was there a failure to yield when turning or to look when backing up? We visit the scene to take photos, talk to witnesses and sometimes hire accident reconstruction experts to establish liability.
Just as importantly, we work with clients, family members, doctors and other professionals to understand the extent of the injury, ongoing medical needs and other long-term impact. We assemble a strong case for damages for future medical care, lost earnings, permanent impairment, and pain and suffering.
