While Connecticut laws mandate that drivers must stop for pedestrians in crosswalks, drivers are also obligated to see and be aware of the pedestrian — even those not within a crosswalk.

Working To Maximize Your Financial Recovery

As an experienced car accident attorney, I recognize the need to thoroughly investigate the accident. However, there is often far more investigation necessary in cases involving a bike accident or pedestrian injury. I move quickly to recover evidence before it disappears.

I work with experts to determine if other factors, such as weather, high traffic, faulty traffic lights or defective road design may have contributed to the accident. I will take all necessary steps to fully develop your case so that I am prepared to negotiate with the insurance company or proceed to trial.
