Hit by a Vehicle in Vermont or New Hampshire? We Can Help.

vermont-pedestrian-accident-attorney Pedestrian accidents are frequently unexpected and traumatizing. In 2014, 5 pedestrians lost their lives in vehicle collisions and many more were injured and hospitalized. At the time of the accident, these people were just going about their days. Some might have been crossing the street or walking on the sidewalk. Pedestrian fatalities have thankfully declined over the past few years from a high of 10 in 2012. But even 5 is too many people to lose to car accidents.

The injuries that can come from a pedestrian accident are serious and debilitating, ranging from broken bones and soft tissue damage to traumatic brain injuries and spinal damage. Many times these injuries are permanent, leading to depression, immobility, loss of enjoyment of life, and the inability to return to work. Medical bills, rehabilitation costs, and lost wages can add financial havoc to the physical pain.

For the victims and families of a pedestrian accident, it can be a confusing and emotionally painful time. You may feel like your options are limited and that you must take the first settlement offer presented to you just to be over with it. You may feel that trusting your insurance company is the best route for you. But by accepting this initial settlement you may not receive the compensation you deserve or the one you need to ease the financial burden of an accident. You may discover that the interests of insurance companies do not align with your own. Hiring an experienced pedestrian accident attorney Michael J. Sabbeth is the first step to making sure you receive the fair compensation you deserve.

If you witness someone being hit by a car or other type of vehicle, call 911 immediately. Do not move them unless they are in a clear and present danger in their current location.

Client Testimonials

  • Michael Sabbeth represented me in a personal injury case as a result of an automotive accident I was involved in. He made me feel very comfortable at every meeting, took the time to explain the process and let me know what was going on in regards to my case and patiently answered any and all questions I had. He went above and beyond to ease my nerves and helped to remove the stress I was feeling. I felt my voice was heard and he worked hard to secure a fair and just settlement. He was extremely competent, trustworthy and genuinely cared. As a client, I was treated with respect, consideration, and compassion. Without a doubt, I would highly recommend him to anyone.

  • Immediately after my son’s injury at work, he was treated poorly. Over the course of the next few days it became even worse, so I called Mike and he and Crystal have been absolute lifesavers during the process. Mike is not your typical stuffed suit lawyer who only cares about the bottom line he genuinely cares about his clients and his assistant Crystal is beyond amazing! My thanks to you both!
