When You or Someone You Care About Has Been Hit by a Car
Walking, jogging, running, playing, entering a crosswalk or crossing a street — pedestrian accidents can happen almost anywhere and in any situation. Unfortunately, it is often assumed that the pedestrian, not the striking vehicle, was at fault. This is why you need Attorney Stoehr to protect your rights.
Our law firm is dedicated to getting positive results for injured people and their families throughout western and central Pennsylvania. Attorney Douglas V. Stoehr is an experienced litigator who prepares every case as if it is going to trial. He does this so that defense attorneys know he is serious, and so they are more likely to settle for the full and fair value of your pedestrian accident claim.
Legal Representation After You Have Been Injured in a Pedestrian Accident
When you have been hurt in a pedestrian accident, the smartest choice is to talk with a lawyer as soon as possible. The courts place time limits — called statutes of limitation — on filing personal injury lawsuits. More importantly, early action means that your attorney will have time to investigate the scene while the evidence is still fresh and while witnesses have clear memories of the events of the accident.
When Attorney Douglas V. Stoehr takes your pedestrian accident case, his first course of action is to do a thorough investigation. He often works with engineers and investigators, including retired state troopers and police officers, to make sure every angle is explored.
Next, he focuses his attention on making sure you are fully recovered from your pedestrian accident. Sometimes injuries that initially seem small can turn out to be major impairments with lasting effects. Our firm never settles too soon so that you can be sure you will get the full and fair compensation you deserve.
Our firm always prepares pedestrian accident cases for trial, but the truth is that most personal injury cases settle before trial. Depending on your needs, we will work out a favorable settlement for you. If the best results will be obtained by taking your case to trial, Attorney Doug Stoehr never hesitates to aggressively litigate.
