I&I Pedestrian Accident Law Firm Will Demand Compensation for You
People getting hit by cars occurs with alarming regularity. Auto pedestrian accidents are nearly always accompanied by severe injuries, and in 2019 the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recorded 6,283 deaths, a 3% increase in fatal pedestrian accidents. Many accidents that occur involve some form of negligence and are often not the fault of the pedestrian hit.
At Isaacs & Isaacs, we’ll demand a settlement that pays for your:
- Medical expenses – including hospitalizations, surgeries, ongoing treatments
- Lost Wages – when you miss work
- Lost Future Income – when you can’t continue your career
- Pain & Suffering
- Loss of Consortium & Funeral Costs – when your loved one has died as a result of the collision
Getting hit by a car will often require legal action to demand and collect the payment of these money damages. Attorney Darryl Isaacs – The Hammer – and the team of pedestrian accident lawyers at I&I will represent you and demand justice from those at fault to make sure insurance companies pay their obligations when you or a loved one has been injured.
Should tragedy occur resulting in the loss of life, our wrongful death attorneys will step in to represent family members so that justice can prevail for you and your loved one.

Deadlines Exist to File Pedestrian Accident Claims
It’s critical to pay attention to the deadlines for filing a personal injury claim or claim for wrongful death. These are specific to each state and are known as the Statute of Limitations. In most cases, you must file a legal claim with the court system before the statute of limitations runs out or you may forfeit your eligibility to demand money damages for your injuries.
- Kentucky – one year from the date of incident for most cases, with some circumstances allowing for two years.
- Indiana– two years from date incident for most cases.
- Ohio – two years from date incident for most cases.
For this reason, it’s so important to contact a pedestrian accident attorney and file your legal claim as soon as possible.
We Work for You on a Contingency Fee Payment System
Legal matters can be extremely costly for injured victims. That’s one reason our pedestrian accident law firm works on a contingency fee basis. This is dramatically different from hourly billing common to some law firms. Contingency is the “don’t pay unless we win your case” model and means that Isaacs & Isaacs won’t nickel and dime you for every phone call, investigation or meeting we take on for your case.
If we win your pedestrian injury case, our fees will be taken as a percentage of your winning settlement or verdict. If we do not win your case, you do not pay the legal fees or costs associated with your case.
Contingency gives us an enormous incentive to fight for every client we represent. We’ve been giving our best to Kentucky, Indiana and Ohio for more than 25 years and have collected over $1 billion in KY, IN and OH for injured clients.
