Pedestrian Accident Attorney

St. Paul Crosswalk Injury Lawyer

Taking a walk after work and strolling along back roads are time-honored past-times for people in Minnesota. Many of us jog or run in all types of weather. However, exercising and relaxing are not without risk. Pedestrians and joggers are vulnerable to accidents caused by the negligence of drivers and other parties.

At the St. Paul law firm of Swor & Gatto, P.A., our attorneys help people who were injured in pedestrian accidents obtain compensation and money damages. Founded in 1981, our law firm has a record of accomplishment in personal injury cases of all types, including those involving pedestrians. We have been able to obtain compensation for our clients’ lost income, medical expenses and pain and suffering, and other costs and damages.

Examples of Pedestrian Accident Cases

Our attorneys handle cases involving pedestrians who were injured in incidents such as:

  • Being hit by a car while legally crossing the street
  • Being sideswiped by a vehicle
  • Being hit because a vehicle failed to stop before making a right turn
  • Being hit when a driver failed to stop for a pedestrian in the cross walk
  • Being hit by a driver under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Being hit by a car running a red light

In addition to handling pedestrian injury, our lawyers undertake wrongful death claims. We seek financial remedies for clients who are grieving the loss of a loved one after fatal pedestrian accidents. We know that money alone is not the answer; we also know that being relieved of financial worries helps people put their lives back together.

Children are particularly vulnerable to being hit by motor vehicles. In general, it is the driver’s responsibility to watch out for children. If a child was injured by the driver of a car or truck, our lawyers advise parents about their options and their rights.
