Police say that a 59-year-old man who was trying to cross Market Street was seriously injured last week when he was struck by a vehicle. Police have worked to obtain surveillance footage of the incident from stores nearby because the driver fled the scene.
Workers at the Dunkin’ Donuts say they saw the aftermath of the crash, which was the second hit-and-run in two days in Philadelphia. The day before this incident, a 50-year-old was killed after he was hit by two vehicles, both of which fled the scene.
At the Dan Doyle Law Group, we know that pedestrian accidents can be dangerous. We also know that they are just one of many ways in which people can sustain personal injuries that are caused by someone else’s negligence.
When you need a Philadelphia personal injury attorney, you can count on us to recover the compensation you deserve.
People can get injured in a variety of ways due to the negligence of others. Today, we’ll briefly discuss some of the more common ways in which these cases arise, but please seek legal assistance about your particular case. Everyone has a different situation.
Let’s start with pedestrian accidents like the one above. For the latest reporting year for Pennsylvania, there were more than 4,000 pedestrian crashes. Out of those, almost each one caused on injury or fatality. Pedestrians, along with bicyclists, are the most vulnerable group of people in and around the roadway. They are susceptible to major injuries.
Moving away from vehicle accidents, we often see many people injured as they go about their daily business at the store, local parks, or at government facilities. Property owners have a duty to maintain a safe environment for those who have a right to be there. This means that they should regularly inspect and maintain their premises and ensure that all wet floors are taken care of. This also includes providing adequate security for buildings and parking lots.
You may have seen the many food recalls on the news lately, but they are not the only type of product that can cause danger to you and your loved ones. Faulty products injure thousands of people a year across the country.
We know the frustration that you may be experiencing in the aftermath of an accident. Dealing with insurance companies and other parties involved can seem impossible, especially if they are reluctant to offer enough compensation to cover all of your injury-related expenses.
At the Dan Doyle Law Group, we will do the hard work for you. Once we evaluate your case and determine the best path forward, we will work tirelessly to secure the compensation you deserve. This includes not only medical expenses but other hidden costs that come with injuries. This can be money for lost income as well as pain and suffering damages.
