Pedestrian Accident Lawyers in Gainesville
Were you or a loved one struck by vehicle while walking, jogging, or running? If so, it is important to seek immediate medical attention. A collision between a pedestrian and a vehicle is usually a very traumatic event. To make matters worse, the victim is often confused by what has happened and may or may not have the presence of mind to determine the extent of their injuries. While most victims are fortunate enough to recover, the injuries sustained after contact with a moving vehicle can be life-altering. To protect your rights, it is vital to seek legal counsel without delay. Only your lawyer can advise you as to the liability of the others and be entrusted to accurately document the details of the collision before important pieces of evidence begin to fade.
At Schackow & Mercadante, our attorneys have the skills to represent victims of pedestrian accidents caused by:
- A child darting into street
- Driving under the influence
- Failure to yield at a crosswalk
- Mishaps while backing up
- Reckless or distracted drivers

No matter how vigilant a pedestrian, runner, or jogger may be, they can quickly suffer permanent injuries at the hands of an intoxicated, careless, or distracted driver.
