Pedestrian Injury Accident Claims in Portland

Pedestrian collisions often involve serious, catastrophic and sometimes fatal injuries.

Most frequently, our client is a pedestrian crossing a street in a crosswalk with a “walk” light when a driver fails to keep proper lookout and makes a turn or drives straight ahead through the crosswalk hitting the pedestrian.

We have seen cases where a car is stopped waiting for a pedestrian to finish crossing when another vehicle drives into the rear of the stopped car pushing it into the pedestrian.

We have represented pedestrians who are walking on sidewalks or on the shoulder or the side of a road when they are struck by a vehicle.

We have represented a number of people who are struck by vehicles in parking lots.

We have represented persons who were pedestrians in school, construction and safety zones at the time they were injured, including construction workers and flaggers.

There are challenging insurance issues in pedestrian cases. Oregon personal injury lawyer James F. O’Rourke, Jr., knows how to deal with these issues.

    "Mr. O’Rourke was by far the best attorney I have ever had."

    My favorite thing about Mr. O’Rourke was that he wasn’t going to back down to anyone, and he never wavered in his mission to do what was best for me.
