“On average, a pedestrian [is] killed every two hours and injured every 8 minutes in traffic crashes.” This statement from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) underscores the extreme risks facing pedestrians in towns such as Stroudsburg and other locations throughout Pennsylvania and across the country. Walking and jogging near motor vehicles can be extremely dangerous. Unfortunately, even those who take safety precautions remain at risk for suffering serious injuries in unexpected collisions.
If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in a pedestrian accident, your family deserves just compensation. Your outstanding medical bills are just a small portion of the losses you are likely to experience over your lifetime. The future costs of treatment, rehabilitation, and prescription medications could far exceed what you owe currently. If you are unable to work, if you experience chronic pain, or if you are unable to enjoy spending time with your friends and loved ones, these are all losses for which financial compensation is available.
Since 1959, our firm has been fighting for victims of pedestrian accidents. We understand what is at stake, and we know what it takes to win just compensation for our clients. From helping you obtain expert medical treatment to taking your case to trial, we can help you every step of the way – and we will not stop fighting until you receive the financial compensation you deserve. Call (855) 866-5529 for a free case review. No fee unless we win your case.
“Chris Munley promised results, and that’s what I got. He was very compassionate and he answered every question I had about my personal injury case. When we couldn’t settle with the insurance company out of court, he was a fighter in the courtroom. Needless to say, we won and I couldn’t be happier with the results.” – Patrick, Personal Injury Client

Answers to FAQs: What Are My Rights after a Pedestrian Accident in Stroudsburg?
Q: How do I know if I am entitled to financial compensation for injuries sustained in a pedestrian accident?
Understanding your rights after a pedestrian accident can be difficult. In order to determine how much you are entitled to recover, you need to know both: (i) who was at fault in the accident, and (ii) how your injuries will impact your life in the years to come. This requires extensive experience in personal injury insurance settlements and litigation. As a result, the best way to learn about your rights is to schedule a free initial consultation with an experienced pedestrian injury attorney.
Q: Can I recover financial compensation for my pain and suffering?
Potentially, yes. Many individuals who suffer traumatic accident-related injuries will experience chronic pain, and they will find it difficult to adjust to life with a debilitating injury. If you were seriously injured, our attorneys can help you seek full compensation for your financial and non-financial losses. This includes not only pain and suffering, but also emotional anguish, loss of support, loss of companionship, loss of consortium, and other types of intangible harm.
Q: How long do I have to seek financial compensation for a pedestrian accident in Pennsylvania?
Pennsylvania’s statute of limitations for pedestrian accident claims is two years from the date of the accident. However, in order to protect your claim for maximum compensation, it is important that you initiate your claim as soon as possible.
