Committed To Achieving Results For Cyclists And Pedestrians
Drivers must be vigilant to avoid hitting pedestrians and cyclists. Too many drivers, however, do not heed the intense danger that vehicles pose to other people around them. When a pedestrian or cyclist is hit by a car or truck, they are likely to suffer significant injuries.
I am Scott E. Denson, lead attorney at The Denson Law Firm, LLC, and I assist pedestrians, cyclists and parents of injured children throughout Alabama after an auto accident. I have over 25 years of legal experience and a track record of successful case results in personal injury cases. You can depend on me to protect your interests and seek maximum compensation whenever possible.
Pedestrian Accident Cases Are Rarely As Simple As They Seem
Common causes of pedestrian accidents include:
- Driving while talking on the phone or texting
- Drunk driving or fatigued driving
- Speeding or driving too fast under hazardous conditions
- Failing to stop at traffic lights or stop signs
- Failing to yield to pedestrians at crosswalks
- Failing to stop behind buses when appropriate
- Poor street lighting, broken traffic lights or other municipal problems
Pedestrian accidents are often severe for the person who is not protected by a vehicle. While drivers often walk away without a scratch, the pedestrian could suffer from life-changing damages, including traumatic brain injuries or spinal cord injuries. Some accidents cause fatal injuries.
However, getting compensation is not always straightforward. Insurance companies do not prioritize your health or financial recovery, and they may deny you fair compensation. I have extensive experience communicating with insurance companies to help my clients gather evidence and protect their claims. I can make sure your rights and best interests are protected while you seek to recover compensation for damages.
Depending on whether you live in Alabama, the laws that apply to your case may differ. I have experience with unique legal situations as well as liability and insurance issues. I can explain your options and find solutions that best fit you and your circumstances.

I truly understand that the outcome of your case is a big deal.

Therefore, I am highly motivated to provide personalized, comprehensive service throughout settlement negotiations or trial.
