Connecticut roads are busy, and many were designed for car travel only — not for access by pedestrians. Many drivers on these roads fail to observe traffic roads that govern right of way. They drive while distracted, failing to use the proper amount of caution necessary to prevent pedestrian accidents.
If you have been injured in a pedestrian accident, or if someone you care about has been killed, talking to the attorneys at Kennedy, Johnson, Schwab & Roberge, L.L.C., is a smart way to protect your interests.

If you have been involved in a pedestrian accident, it is important to act quickly. Your first priority should be seeking medical attention, but it is also important to record critical information that could be useful later.
If possible, get the names of any witnesses to the accident. Take photographs of the scene and of your personal injury just after the accident. Record medical treatments and costs.
Most importantly — talk with a lawyer. In fact, we recommend that you speak with us before you talk with the responsible party’s insurance company. To schedule your free initial consultation with a New Haven pedestrian accident lawyer, contact Kennedy, Johnson, Schwab & Roberge, L.L.C., and speak with one of our representatives.
