If you or someone you love was injured in a pedestrian accident, do not wait to involve an attorney. You may be entitled to financial compensation for the injuries you have experienced, but it can be difficult to recover a fair settlement from the person or company that is responsible for causing the accident. Their insurance company will fight tooth and nail to try to reduce your settlement, delay payment, or even assign liability to you. Only a competent attorney can protect your right to fair and complete compensation.
With over 80 years of experience, our Albuquerque pedestrian accident lawyers at Ortega, McGlashan, Hicks & Perez, PLLC are equipped to handle your claim. We are not afraid of facing off against the largest insurance providers as we fight for the monetary damages our clients need to rebuild and recover.

Types of Pedestrian Injuries
Pedestrians may experience serious and life-threatening injuries if they are struck by motor vehicles. They have no protection against the thousands of pounds of metal that comprise a car, truck, or SUV and may be catastrophically injured even in low-speed accidents.
Examples of potential pedestrian injuries include:
- Broken bones
- Internal organ damage
- Head trauma
- Crush injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Severe cuts and bruises
If you’ve been injured, make sure you seek immediate medical care. Even minor injuries should be treated by a doctor, and you should tell your healthcare professional that you were struck by a car. He or she will know what type of latent injuries to look for, such as a brain injury or spine injury.
