Providing Compassionate Counsel For Victims Of Car Vs. Pedestrian Accidents
In our tech-savvy world, pedestrians are becoming more and more at-risk. Drivers are often distracted by their smartphones. It’s easy for a motorist to “tune out” their surroundings. They may not look up in time when a pedestrian enters the intersection, or when a pedestrian walks in front of them in a parking lot, and the consequences can be life-altering. If you are the victim of a pedestrian accident, Gilbert Law Group PLLC can be the ally you need when seeking the justice you deserve. Our compassionate pedestrian accident lawyers in Lexington want to provide top-quality, personalized service to the injured.
We can help you obtain damages that cover:
- Medical costs

Kentucky does not impose a limit on the amount of damages you can recover in a personal injury case. However, you only have one year from the date of the accident to file your lawsuit.

How Should You Start?
There are several ways to get started on your case. If you know of any witnesses, make sure that you contact them. Communicate your side of the story to ensure it matches with theirs. Make note of any details you remember. These often fade quickly from the memory, so it’s important to write them down as soon as possible so that you can refer to them at a later date.
You can also prepare for your case by:
- Keeping a journal that details expenses from your accident
- Photographing your injuries, the scene of the accident, and any dangers
- Writing down your personal account of the accident
- Collecting information from drivers who caused the accident
- Notifying the parties at fault of your intent to sue
After this, an experienced pedestrian accident attorney in Lexington can compile your information into a presentable format and advocate for you. It may be best to settle with the defendants outside of the courtroom in a negotiation, but we are willing to litigate in the courts if we need to.
What Happens When You Get Hit By A Car?
If you have been hit by a distracted driver, but leave the scene of the accident feeling relatively fine, it can be tempting to just carry on with your life without pursuing legal action. However, when it comes to injuries sustained in these types of accidents, it can be difficult to predict the future impact the accident will have on your life.
Even if you are not experiencing any pain following your accident, you should still seek professional medical attention. Do not leave the scene until you have been checked out by a medical professional. Injuries such as soft tissue injuries, brain injuries, internal bleeding, and even emotional trauma can take some time to surface, but can still be very serious. Don’t put your recovery at risk!
