West End, Bridgeport, Connecticut Pedestrian Accidents

Many people enjoy walking along the waterfront pathways in the West End. Sadly, despite advances in road safety and vehicle technology, pedestrians remain vulnerable to severe injuries when involved in collisions with motor vehicles. In Connecticut, some 1,240 individuals were involved in pedestrian-related crashes in 2023. 

Pedestrian accidents can occur for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Distracted drivingWith the increased use of smartphones, distracted driving has become a significant risk factor. Drivers who are texting, checking social media, talking on the phone, or using in-car technologies are more likely to miss seeing pedestrians. 
  • SpeedingIncreased speeds reduce drivers’ reaction time and increase the risk of severe injuries in the event of a collision. In urban areas, where pedestrians are more common, speeding can be especially dangerous. 
  • Poor visibilityAccidents often happen when visibility is poor. This could be due to low-light situations or adverse weather conditions such as fog, heavy rain, or snow. Pedestrians wearing dark clothing can be especially difficult to see.
  • Drug and alcohol use: Impairment from drugs or alcohol can affect both drivers and pedestrians. Driving under the influence reduces reaction times and impairs judgment. Intoxicated pedestrians may make unsafe decisions, such as disobeying pedestrian traffic signals.
  • Failure to yieldMany collisions occur at crosswalks and intersections where drivers fail to yield the right-of-way to pedestrians. This is often due to a lack of attention or misunderstanding of traffic laws. 

The personal injury attorneys at Cellino Law understand the devastating impact a pedestrian accident can have on victims and their families. 

As your lawyers, we will investigate your accident, gather evidence, negotiate with the insurance companies, and help you secure maximum compensation for damages

  • Cellino Law and more specifically my attorney, Gregory V. Pajak, Managing Attorney, and as a whole the Cellino Law Firm and its organization. This is by far one of the most professional law firms and attorney I have ever engaged with and retained in my 35 years. The level of professionalism goes beyond words, the care and constant engagement with me as the client was touching. I was never ever just treated as simply a CASE with potentially a significant dollar number attached to my file. I was engaged regularly, Tracey (Ass’t) and Greg always made sure to remain constant, as well as consistent in overseeing that my case was handled properly and that it did matter in many ways - ensuring that the end result(s) would be fair and reasonable to my case/injury. The regular follow-up calls were very satisfying, knowing that you’re involved in your case matters significantly AND always. One of my main items to recognize Cellino Law and Gregory is that whenever I called, I was able to get through to speak directly to my Lawyer and he would answer any if not all of my questions in a very professional and genuinely caring manner. I always felt cared for and protected legally and more importantly, I was made feel as a human being that was being cared for and always keeping me abreast of all matters connected to the case. There was never a point I felt let down, on the contrary -the level of service was “STELLAR”. Greg is the consummate professional, a ‘role model’, if you will, for what other attorneys should strive to become when dealing with their clients.
