Our Pedestrian Accident Lawyers Fight for You
When you see insurance companies in commercials, they typically portray themselves as community-oriented and caring. That may be true if you’re their policyholder. Unfortunately, you probably won’t get the “friendly” treatment if one of their policyholders injures you in a pedestrian accident.
The dirty truth is that the more money the negligent driver’s insurance company can avoid paying you after a pedestrian accident, the more their shareholders can profit. So, they have a financial incentive to shortchange you, regardless of how negligent their client was. Never forget, the claims adjuster works for their shareholders, not you.
The pedestrian accident attorneys at GED Lawyers work for you and only you. We’ve taken on insurance companies and won. We give you the benefit of having a professional team that is as dedicated to your best interests as the insurance company is to protecting their bottom line.

What Kind of Damages Can You Seek After a Pedestrian Accident?
The large size disparity between pedestrians and automobiles means that even a low-speed pedestrian accident can result in high medical bills and serious long-term financial consequences for the accident victim. That’s why the law allows you to pursue recoverable damages from the negligent driver. Remember, your injuries are the product of their negligence, so they should foot the bill for it, not you.
Examples of the recoverable damages an attorney from our firm may seek in your pedestrian accident case include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Loss of income (temporary, long-term, or permanent)
- Medical bills
- Transportation to the hospital or medical facilities
- Cost of ongoing or long-term post-accident medical treatment such as a stay-at home nurse or physical therapy regimen
Depending on the severity of your pedestrian accident, we may also seek non-economic damages on your behalf. Examples of non-economic damages would include, but not be limited to, the following:
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of quality of life (such as paralysis or loss of a limb)
Is There a Time Limit on Seeking Damages After a Pedestrian Accident?
Massachusetts currently has a three-year statute of limitations on demanding damages in pedestrian accident and personal injury cases. This three-year period begins on the date of your pedestrian accident. Under most circumstances, if you fail to demand damages prior to the end of the statute of limitations, you will lose your right to do so.
It may, however, be to your advantage to demand damages much sooner than three years. That’s because in many cases, the quality of the available evidence is highest in the immediate days and weeks after your pedestrian accident. During this period, the recollection of any eyewitnesses to your accident is likely to still be fresh.

How Much Is My Pedestrian Accident Case Worth?
There are so many variables and potential outcomes of a pedestrian accident that no two cases will ever be exactly alike. Therefore, we are not able to advise you about the potential value of your case unless we speak to you in depth about the facts surrounding your accident. Examples of factors that would influence the value in your case include the following:
- Total cost of your medical treatment
- Necessity and cost of any quality-of-life renovations you need to make to your house (e.g., installation of disabled access ramps or bath facilities)
- Your wages and the length of time you will be out of work
- Your lifetime earning potential (if you are permanently incapacitated)
- The degree of your pain and suffering
Every single one of these factors is different in a pedestrian accident, which is why we advise you to reach out to us for a free case review. You can discuss the facts of your case without any obligation to let us represent you. We want everyone to have the most information possible when deciding how to proceed and who will represent them after a pedestrian accident.
