Handling Pedestrian Accident Injury Claims Across Kentucky

The legal team at Gary C. Johnson, P.S.C., with offices in Lexington, Hazard and Pikeville, helps pedestrians injured by motorists and families of those who have lost loved ones in such circumstances. We understand the many variables in these cases, and we carefully consider them all, including such details as:

  • Right of way issues

  • Stop signs, yield signs and other warning signs

Hit-and-Run Accidents

It is all too common for drivers to flee the scene after striking a pedestrian. This reckless behavior leaves victims injured and in some cases, fighting for their lives with no immediate help.

Obtaining compensation in hit-and-run accidents can be challenging. Without knowing the driver's identity, making a claim with that driver's insurance company is not possible. Police will investigate the incident and search for the driver, and our Lexington lawyers will monitor and help in any way we can.

If the driver cannot be located, do not give up. If you have underinsured/uninsured motorist coverage (UIM), our law firm can help you make a claim and get the compensation you deserve. If your insurer resists paying, we will fight to get you the benefits you need, the benefits you have paid for by dutifully paying your premiums.
