Cape Cod Pedestrian Accident Attorney Representing Injured Pedestrians Over 35 Years
Pedestrian accidents are all too common on the Cape and Islands, especially in Provincetown, Hyannis, Yarmouth and Falmouth during peak tourist season. Our attorneys are familiar with the serious and permanent injuries, including head trauma, spinal injuries, broken bones and lacerations. Rather than a quick settlement that barely covers your hospital bills, we spend the time and resources to ensure that clients are compensated for the lasting impact — future surgery or nursing care, disability or disfigurement, diminished earning capacity, and pain and suffering.
You do not need “pedestrian insurance” to recover compensation:
- Initial medical bills incurred as a pedestrian are covered by Med-Pay insurance on your own vehicle.
- The negligent driver is accountable through his or her liability insurance for other damages you suffered (lost income, future medical care, permanent injury, etc.)
- If the driver has no insurance or minimum coverage, you may be able to recover compensation if you have uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage on your auto policy.
- If you or your child was struck by an unidentified driver who fled the scene, you can still recover damages under your own car insurance.
Our attorneys will identify all applicable coverages and battle it out with the insurance companies while you follow the doctor’s orders and focus on getting your life back on track.

88-Year-Old Pedestrian Hit in Crosswalk: $725,000 Settlement
A recent case involved a pedestrian who was hit by a car while walking in a crosswalk, resulting in a fracture of the femur and eye socket. The incident required two surgeries and a skin graft to repair the open wound. A year’s worth of wound care, occupational therapy and physical therapy took place with medical bills were exceeding $250,000. This client was 88 years old so he did not suffer any loss of income. Our firm was able to significantly reduce the medicare lien in order to substantially maximize the overall recovery.

There are over two million car crashes in the U.S. every year resulting in 37,000 deaths and 2.35 million injuries according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). According to the NHTSA, over 30% could have been saved from serious or fatal injuries if they received help in time.

Once the accident has been detected, our App sends a text and email notification to preselected contacts, enabling to be aware of the location, send an ambulance or other emergency help if necessary.
