Buffalo Pedestrian Accident Lawyer
Pedestrians struck by negligent drivers almost always suffer extensive injuries because nothing is protecting them from the forceful impact of a one-ton car.

Just dial (844) 444-4444 to start the process of getting justice and compensation.
Why Pedestrian Accidents Happen
Some drivers think they “own” the road. In other words, they think pedestrians should give them the right of way even pedestrians that are walking in crosswalks. Texting while driving, talking to other passengers in the car, driving drunk or otherwise being distracted are other reasons for pedestrian accidents. Fortunately, in all states including New York, there are strict laws in place to protect your rights as a pedestrian. An experienced Buffalo pedestrian accident lawyer at William Mattar will represent you and your legal rights against insurance companies that do not have your best interests in mind.
Pedestrian Accident Injuries
Our injury attorneys represent clients who have been hit by vehicles and have suffered these serious injuries often requiring surgery:
- Internal injuries involving the liver, kidneys, stomach or lungs
- Bone fractures (arms, legs, spine and neck)
- Open or closed brain injuries
- Lacerations needing many stitches
In addition to lengthy hospital stays, pedestrian/vehicle crash injuries generally require victims engage in physical rehabilitation, light duty at work and take expensive medications. In worst case scenarios, victims hit by a speeding car may need long-term or permanent care.
If you are in the hospital or housebound due to being hit by a negligent driver, call a personal injury attorney at (844) 444-4444 who will come to your location to discuss your accident.
Duty of Care and Automobile Drivers
Drivers of cars, trucks and motorcycles are legally supposed to follow the “duty of care” law to people around them. This means drivers must operate their vehicle reasonably to stop accidents from occurring. If a driver is negligent and makes a reckless decision resulting in a pedestrian accident, victims can hold them responsible for their actions. That’s where William Mattar pedestrian accident lawyers can step in and help you through this devastating event so your life can ultimately be made whole again.
