If You've Been Injured While Walking, We Can Help.

For many, the sidewalk is presumed to be a safe place. However, too often, pedestrians are injured by careless or inattentive drivers. When a negligent driver strikes a pedestrian, the resulting injury is often very serious.

At Cooper Law Firm, our attorneys have decades of experience assisting clients in Silver Spring and across Maryland as they strive to recover after a pedestrian accident. For most people, the pressures of recovery can weigh heavily, from the financial costs of rehabilitation to simply feeling normal again. That's why we pursue our clients' claims aggressively, while allowing them to focus on recovery.

Helping You After A Pedestrian Accident

For both pedestrians and drivers, there are laws and expectations in place. Namely, that each will observe the rules of the road, and show care in doing so. For pedestrians, this usually means walking on the sidewalk, following signals and generally being attentive. For drivers, it's important that they not be negligent in their duties, which generally means that they're not speeding, or driving in a distracted manner.

If you've suffered an injury when you've been following the rules but a driver has not, we can help you pursue a legal strategy that will cover your expenses for pain, suffering and inconvenience.

We've helped pedestrian clients who have been injured due to a driver:

  • Hopping the sidewalk
  • Failing to yield right of way to pedestrians in crosswalks
  • Disobeying traffic signals
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
