Riddle & Brantley’s Results
Our pedestrian accident attorneys have spent decades fighting for wrongfully injured pedestrians in North Carolina and have over 220+ years combined legal experience seeking justice for our clients.
Our North Carolina personal injury attorneys have recovered millions of dollars in settlements for our clients (see disclaimer below), including:
- $1,925,000 Cement Truck Pedestrian Accident Settlement – Partner Gene Riddle and late partner Gene Jenkins represented a woman who was seriously injured in a pedestrian accident by a cement truck, which struck her while she was walking across a parking lot. We hired an expert witness to reconstruct the accident and provide testimony, proved liability, and secured nearly $2 million in total compensation for the victim.
- $1,625,000 Contributory Negligence Pedestrian Accident Settlement – We represented a client who was struck by a vehicle while walking across a busy road. The defendant failed to yield, hitting her and causing significant injuries, which required multiple surgeries. We brought in an outside reconstructionist to prove liability in the case, and ultimately secured $1.625 million in compensation through a negotiated settlement.
- $700,000 School Crosswalk Pedestrian Accident Settlement – Attorney Gene Riddle represented two seventh grade boys who were hit in front of their school while attempting to cross the road in a marked crosswalk under the direction of a green walk arrow. Both students suffered serious injuries, including traumatic brain injury and partial paralysis. We organized a comprehensive investigation, prove fault, and secured $700,000 in total compensation from the insurance company.

Common Injuries in Pedestrian Accidents
Victims of pedestrian accidents often sustain serious and even life-threatening injuries. Given the enormous difference between the size, weight, and speed of a vehicle and person, injuries are often catastrophic.
Injuries suffered in pedestrian accidents may include:
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Spinal cord and vertebral injuries
- Skull, face, and mandible fractures
- Neck, back, and whiplash injuries
- Traumatic amputations
- Internal organ damage
- Hemorrhages and hematomas (blood clots)
- Broken bones
- Lacerations and contusions
- Abrasions, like cuts, scrapes, or “road rash”
In the most tragic and heartbreaking situations, pedestrians can be killed in these accidents. Our wrongful death lawyers are ready to help surviving family members fight for justice for lost loved ones.

Don’t wait — the longer you wait to contact an attorney, the harder it may be to win your case and recover the compensation you deserve. Please call (704) 486-5824and let’s review your claim.
Calculating Damages to Get You the Compensation You Need and Deserve
Sometimes, the severity of injuries associated with pedestrian auto accidents necessitate long-term, more expensive medical care. Medical costs can quickly skyrocket as expenses are incurred for long-term care like physical, occupational, and rehabilitative therapy, specialty medical supplies and mobility equipment, in-home medical modifications, or long-term caregiving and nursing services.
Our pedestrian accident attorneys know how to build these projected costs into a comprehensive life care plan included in your future settlement to ensure that you or your loved one can focus on recovery and not have to worry about your financial future.
We don’t get paid unless you do. If we don’t recover compensation for you, you won’t pay any attorney fees.
