The law is clear. Pedestrians and bike riders in parking lots, in crosswalks, and on sidewalks have the right of way. Thousands of Americans are injured by cars, trucks, and delivery vans every year when drivers fail to yield the right of way. Unfortunately, many of the injuries are the result of hit and run accidents, leaving the victim and family with a feeling of helplessness. Interviewing witnesses, recovering traffic camera video footage, and investigating the scene of a pedestrian knockdown is key to holding negligent and careless drivers financially accountable for their actions.
If you have been hit by a car driver or have lost a family member due to a pedestrian knockdown, contact attorney Frederick J. Brynn today to schedule a free consultation to discuss your pedestrian injury case.

Investigating Pedestrian Injury Accidents
The attorneys of Frederick J. Brynn, P.C., provide aggressive representation for people who are seeking money damages after being injured in a pedestrian or bicycle accident. We have the resources of professional accident investigators and insurance experts to help us determine what parties may be held liable for compensation.
We know that parking lot accidents aren’t always just the driver’s fault. If the property owners did not provide safety measures to ensure pedestrian safety, they may be held responsible. If an intersection is improperly marked for pedestrian safety, the city administration may share liability for injuries. Our primary objective is to always seek maximum compensation for your injuries, and that includes finding every party who may be held liable for payment.
Hit and run accidents and uninsured drivers
If you were struck by a driver who fled the scene of the pedestrian accident or bicycle accident, there is a chance that the vehicle was not insured. Many victims of hit and run accidents aren’t aware of the options that are still available for collecting money damages for their injuries. Frederick J. Brynn, P.C., can help you file a claim against your own insurance policy, as well as find other insured parties that may be responsible. When you hire us, you are not alone in your fight for rights and justice.
