Pedestrian Accidents Lawyers In Gainesville
Were you or a loved one struck by vehicle while walking, jogging or running?
If so, it is important to seek immediate medical attention. An accident between a pedestrian and a vehicle is usually a very traumatic event. To make matters worse, the victim is often dazed or confused by what has happened and may or may not have the presence of mind to determine the extent of their injuries. While most victims are fortunate enough to recover, the injuries sustained after contact with a moving vehicle can be life-altering. To protect your rights, it is vital to seek legal counsel without delay. Only your personal injury lawyer can advise you as to the liability of the others, and be entrusted to accurately document the details of the accident before important pieces of evidence begin to fade.
