If you or a loved one has been affected by a pedestrian-car accident, don't wait. Contact Keller Postman's expert legal team today. Our dedicated attorneys are prepared to fight for your rights, ensuring you receive the justice and compensation you deserve.
Motor vehicle drivers have a duty to be careful and cautious around vulnerable pedestrians commuting on foot. Nonetheless, one in six people that died in U.S. car accidents in 2021 were pedestrians. Over 100,000 other pedestrians suffered non-fatal car accident injuries the same year. In roughly 20% of all these accidents, the drivers were under the influence of alcohol. Keller Postman’s experienced car accident attorneys are here to get you and your loved one’s justice for the pervasive recklessness on our roads.
Specific circumstances and applicable traffic laws dictate who may be liable in a car accident involving a pedestrian or cyclist. In states like Massachusetts, both the pedestrian and the driver may be found to share fault in the accident. The more fault you’re assigned, the less compensation you may receive for your claim. Get a Keller Postman personal injury attorney on your side today to protect your rights and potential compensation.

Meet the attorneys leading the Personal Injury Practice.
The value of your case depends on several factors. How bad are your injuries? How much money have you spent on medical bills? And did you lose any wages because of the injury? Lastly, who is responsible for what happened? To better understand how much your case might be worth, you should talk to a lawyer. An attorney can look at all the details of your situation and give you an estimate. And don’t worry, the initial assessment won’t cost you anything.
Please collect any available medical records, police reports, and images of injuries or property damage and share them with us. Do not delete or destroy anything. Keep all your digital photos, emails, text messages, or social media messages, as it could impact your claim.
Yes, there are, and they are called Statutes of limitations or SOLs. SOLs set a time limit to file your claim. In Massachusetts, it is usually three years. If a deadline is approaching, respond promptly to our urgent requests to protect your claim.
We recommend keeping your social media posts private and discussing the case only with us and your spouse, if you’re married. Communications between you and Keller Postman LLC are protected by attorney-client privilege. That means our conversations are private and protected. But be careful when talking to other people about your case. Those conversations might be questioned, so be cautious.
We charge no fees unless we win your case, so you will owe nothing until we get you compensation. After that, we charge the standard 33% “contingency fee.” This means that if—and only if—we successfully resolve your case, 33% of your recovery will go to our firm for our services. If we cannot get you a favorable outcome, you will not have to pay us anything.
