Fayetteville Pedestrian Accidents
According to the North Carolina Department of Transportation, there were 57 traffic fatalities in North Carolina in 2019, 10 of which were pedestrians. Another 95 pedestrians survived their accidents with injuries. Oftentimes, pedestrian injuries will be severe, even catastrophic, because the victim did not have any protection to buffer them from the impact of getting run over by a motorcycle on Raeford Road or thrown onto the pavement after being struck by a large truck on Bragg Boulevard.
Recovering from a traumatic brain injury (TBI) sustained in a Fayetteville pedestrian accident can be a long and costly process, as can learning to live with a spinal cord injury (SCI). Even healing from broken bones or undergoing months of physical therapy for a strained shoulder can take a toll. Maurer Law works with clients injured in pedestrian accidents throughout Cumberland County in pursuing the financial recovery they are owed from the motorist or other parties responsible.

Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for the insurance company of an at-fault driver to argue that their client was not the one to blame. One reason that insurers tend to fight so hard to shift accountability onto an injured pedestrian is because North Carolina is a “contributory negligence” state. If a victim is found to be even a little responsible for causing the accident, then they are not entitled to damages.
Fayetteville pedestrian injury attorney Mike Maurer is not afraid to stand up to insurance companies. As a former defense lawyer for insurers, he is familiar with their tactics. These days, Attorney Maurer is the one defending pedestrians from such maneuverings so that they can receive the compensation they are owed for their pain and suffering, lost wages, any rehabilitation and medical expenses, and other related costs.Unafraid to Take on Tough Cases to Help Injured Pedestrians
Fayetteville, NC pedestrian accidents do not just happen on roads and sidewalks. Many of our clients have included people simply walking through a grocery store parking lot. Maurer Law recently represented an 80-year-old lady who was run down in a Food Lion parking lot and was left there injured on the hot, filthy asphalt parking lot. Although the suspect realized he had hit her — he got out of his truck and saw her on the ground— he offered no assistance and promptly fled the scene. Our investigation revealed that this was not the first time something like this had happened with this reckless driver.
His wife convinced him to come back to the scene and provide his insurance information. A police report was taken. While the insurance company acknowledged that the driver was at fault and wrong for leaving, they claimed our client was not really hurt. Our law firm took the case all the way to trial and let a jury decide. After a 5-day trial, the jury found for our client in all respects and awarded her fair compensation for her injuries, pain, and suffering. The outcome of the case also provided our client with much needed closure.
Although we don’t take every North Carolina pedestrian injury lawsuit to trial — we always try to negotiate a settlement beforehand —we work on every case as if we plan on going to court. Insurers know this about us. Throughout Cumberland County, Maurer Law has a reputation for being thoroughly prepared and ready to zealously advocate for our clients.Representing Military Personnel in Fort Bragg Pedestrian Accidents
