Advocating for Justice After a Pedestrian Accident
Every year, thousands of pedestrians are killed in traffic accidents. Unfortunately, this trend shows no signs of stopping, and is in fact getting worse. The U.S. Department of Transportation reported that in 2015, 5,376 pedestrians were killed by motorists. This is nearly a 10% increase from the previous year, and the highest number of deaths since 1996. Tens of thousands more pedestrians were injured, often seriously. Because pedestrians have no protection against motor vehicles, they are often at risk for traumatic brain injuries (TBI), spinal cord injuries, and other types of life-altering injuries.
In the aftermath of a severe pedestrian injury, it is essential to retain the services of lawyers who know how to prepare a case that accounts for all of your damages. Based in McKinney and serving clients across the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, the State of Texas and beyond, Burress Law PLLC is committed to protecting your rights in all types of car wreck and motor vehicle accident cases. When you work with us, you will know you are working with a law firm that has committed its entire practice to the protection of injured victims.
Lawyers Who Understand How the Other Side Thinks
Our founding attorney, Jason Burress spent years defending large corporations and insurance companies from personal injury claims. As a result, our legal team understands how insurance companies defend injury claims and how they think and operate. We use that understanding to create a legal strategy tailored to your specific pedestrian vehicle crash, including those cases involving:
- Hit and run
- Crosswalk injury
- Distracted driving
- Failure to yield right of way
Our lawyers also negotiate aggressively with health care providers and subrogation interests to obtain reductions on medical bills. This puts more money in our clients’ pockets and protects their financial interests.
Victims Who Delay Securing Legal Representation Hurt Their Cases
