Joe took my case after I was dropped by my previous lawyer of almost 5 yrs. Joe explained the challenges my case was facing and how to best proceed, I feel he was honest with his assessment of my case and I appreciated his straight to the point attitude. I am very pleased to say he and Nicole (his assistant) always treated me with respect and never made me feel like any question or concerns I had were stupid were or bothersome. Much to my surprise my phone calls and emails were always answered in a very timely fashion. Nicole played a very big part in the smooth process of getting this case settled . Joe and Nicole are a great team and I highly recommend Joe if you are looking for a no nonsense straight to the point lawyer who gets things done. Thank you for settling my case so promptly.

Joe Nagy......all the way!!!! My accident happened in the fall of 2016 in BC . I first contacted a firm that is advertised everywhere only for them to tell me that I seemed to have a handle on the situation and to contact them again in 2 years. I then called Joe's office and I didn't have another worry. He took all of the thinking out of it and made everything easy for me . We exchanged a few phone calls throughout the year and a half and then it was over. Natalie was friendly and a great girl to work with. Joe cares and works for his client. Call Joe!

I worked with Joe for almost 4 years after my accident and I can honestly say he worked very hard for me. There are very few in the legal world that actually care about you, that see you as more than a paycheck, Joe is one. When I was suffering, he went out of his way to make sure I was ok, even helping me out of his own pocket when times were really tough. He is thorough, thoughtful and will be an absolute shark in fighting for you. Thanks for all your help Joe!

Some Causes of Motor Vehicle vs. Pedestrian Accidents

Victims of pedestrian auto accidents, like the one depicted here, require the services of an experienced and knowledgeable pedestrian accident lawyer. If you have been injured by a motor vehicle in a marked or unmarked crosswalk call Joseph A. Nagy, Edmonton injury lawyer, for advice.

Motor vehicle vs. pedestrian accidents most commonly happen when one vehicle stops to let a pedestrian cross the street. A second driver going in the same direction is unable to see the pedestrian because the driver that is stopped has blocked the view of the pedestrian. The negligent driver is usually not paying attention to why the vehicle beside him stopped and drives through the marked crosswalk hitting the pedestrian.

Another common occurrence is when a driver looks in only one direction while exiting a parking lot or making a turn from a stopped position to enter a roadway. The driver fails to see the pedestrian and drives into the pedestrian.

Another common occurrence is when two vehicles collide at an intersection when one makes a left hand turn in front of the other. The collision causes one of the vehicles to hit a pedestrian walking in the crosswalk or on a sidewalk.

The Use of Highway and Rules of the Road Regulation defines a crosswalk as follows:

(d) “crosswalk” means

  1. that part of a roadway at an intersection included within the connection of the lateral line of the sidewalks on opposite sides of the highway measured from the curbs or, in the absence of curbs, from the edges of the roadway, or
  2. any part of a roadway at an intersection or elsewhere distinctly indicated for pedestrian crossing by signs or by lines or by other markings on the road surface;

I have dealt with a few lawyers in my past and Mr. Nagy is my favorite. He is personable and honest. He lets you know what can be done and what can not be done in regards to your claim. We had additional questions that weren’t related to our claim and he was able to send us in the right direction. I highly recommend Joseph Nagy if you live in the Edmonton area and require a personal injury lawyer.
