Recover Compensation for Your Accident-Related Damages

- A negotiated settlement based on your damages
- The need to file a lawsuit because we cannot reach a just agreement

Our trial lawyers will take your case to trial and fight to recover damages on your behalf. These losses could include:

We Help Families Whose Loved Ones Died From Their Injuries
Berger and Green also represents families whose loved ones died from their injuries as allowed under 42 Pa. C.S.A. § 8301.

How You Can Prove Fault, Liability, and the Value of Your Case
We will investigate what happened and who caused it, often with help from accident reconstructionists and other experts. We need to identify evidence that shows:
- The driver violated a traffic law or made a careless mistake that put you in danger.
- This breach caused your accident and injuries.
- You suffered harm that included physical injuries, monetary losses, and intangible damages.
We know how to find and gather support for your insurance claim and develop a solid argument for trial. You will not have to worry about any of this when our lawyers manage your Baldwin pedestrian accident injury case.
What Causes Pedestrian Accidents in Baldwin, PA?
A motorist may not see a pedestrian or otherwise make mistakes that lead to serious injuries or even death. The reasons why could include:
- Distracted drivers who do not see the pedestrian
- Speeding that prevents recognizing someone crossing the road or stopping in time
- Drunk or drugged drivers
- Failure to stop at intersections and crosswalks
- Failure to yield the right of way to pedestrians when turning
- Ice, snow, or wet conditions
- Parking lot accidents
- Driving on areas meant for pedestrians or cyclists, including sidewalks or bike paths
Any of these accident types could support a compensation claim.
What Types of Injuries do Pedestrians Suffer in This Type of Collision?
Almost any type of injury is possible in a pedestrian versus motor vehicle crash. The severity of these injuries can also vary widely. When a car collides with an individual at a relatively slow speed, the injuries could include:
- Broken bones
At higher speeds or in more severe accidents, however, injuries can be life-altering. These injuries could include:
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
- Spinal cord injuries (SCIs)
- Back, neck, and head injuries
- Limb injuries and amputations
- Internal injuries

We realize it could take time before your injuries are stable. Our team can visit you in the hospital, a rehabilitation facility, or your home—or assess your case on the phone.
We like to speak with victims or their families quickly following these accidents for several reasons. Some evidence, including video of the accident, could disappear within days or weeks.
In addition, there is a two-year deadline that generally applies to filing a lawsuit under Pa. C.S.A. § 5524. There are exceptions that could limit your legal rights even further and move the deadline sooner, as well.
