Pedestrian Accident Lawyer in Washington, DC
A recent study published on the Washington DC Metropolitan Police website revealed that the District recorded at least 35 pedestrian accident deaths in 2022. The study also showed that from 2020 to 2022, there were at least 112 pedestrian accident deaths in DC.
These figures highlight how risky taking a walk in the District can sometimes be. Even worse, most of these accidents occur due to negligence, mostly on the part of the driver. If you or a loved one is a pedestrian accident victim in DC, you may be able to hold the at-fault party accountable for your injuries and losses.
If you win your claim (or lawsuit), you may be able to recover applicable damages. That said, such cases are not usually that easy to win despite seeming pretty straightforward on paper. Unfortunately, that’s not how the law works.
You, as the plaintiff, must prove that you were injured due to the other party’s negligence or recklessness on the road. This aspect alone can be challenging to navigate, not forgetting the strict deadlines often attached to these cases. Even if you have a solid case, a missed deadline could be all it takes to deny you the right to pursue the compensation you need and deserve.
Do not let that happen to you. Contact Morgan and Morgan, America’s largest and most powerful injury firm, today for a free case evaluation. We may be able to assign an experienced Washington D.C. pedestrian accident attorney to your case.

Morgan & Morgan
How Can a Morgan and Morgan Lawyer Help?
Suppose we find out your case is valid, and you have grounds for pursuing compensation. In that case, our attorneys will help gather crucial evidence to establish and prove liability, assess the value of your claim, file the claim with the responsible party, and negotiate a favorable settlement.
What If Negotiations Fail?
That’s not an uncommon scenario. The good news is that we’re always prepared to take the battle in court if the other party refuses to settle. And because we have access to powerful legal resources, we’re never afraid to face any defendant, no matter their size, in court.
What Will It Take to Have a Morgan and Morgan Lawyer Represent Me?
All you need is a viable claim. You don’t need any upfront payments since we only get paid if we win. And if we win, only a small portion of the settlement or verdict will go into settling attorney fees and other legal costs involved.
What Damages Can I Recover If I Win?
For starters, each case is unique. But typically, in such cases, plaintiffs can recover medical expenses, lost wages, and also compensation for things like pain and suffering, emotional distress, and the loss of enjoyment of life.
If a pedestrian died in the accident, the survivors may be able to claim loss of financial support, funeral and burial expenses, and even medical costs (if the deceased succumbed to their injuries while receiving treatment).
