A Reputable Law Firm For Your Pedestrian Accident Needs

When people hear the word accident, the image in their mind does not usually display pedestrians. Rather, individuals likely picture smashed cars, SUVs, or maybe even eighteen-wheelers. However, research by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration shows that about 2.5-million pedestrians sustain injuries each year from accidents with motor vehicles in the United States. Damages will vary because each incident is unique, but some of the more common ones include…

• Brain Trauma And Head Injuries
• Broken Or Fractured Bones
• Internal Bleeding Or Organ Damage
• Full Or Partial Paralysis
• Loss Of Limbs
• Death

Of course, not every case will end in such dire consequences, but sometimes they do, and the victim faces a long, tiresome road to recover fully. The individual winds up missing work, due to the wounds, and is also faced with the task of paying doctor, emergency room, or a host of other expenses. Getting stuck with this debt, especially when the injuries were inflicted by someone else is not fair, but luckily, people do not have to endure this outcome. Instead, they can seek compensation for their hardships.

Even if the driver does not have insurance, it may be possible for the pedestrian to obtain restitution. One way to accomplish this feat is by filing an uninsured motorist claim with your personal insurer. Unfortunately, this method fails to hold the liable party accountable for their actions, but still, it helps offset the recovery costs. Plus, the injured party can file a lawsuit against the uncovered driver too. Assets such as money in the bank, a home, or other owned properties can be used to satisfy an awarded judgment.

Much like the damages, compensation will also vary case by case. Some aspects are easy to calculate while others are a bit more difficult. Some factors for determining the sum include…

• Current Medical Expenses
• Future Lost Wages And Recovery Costs
• Punitive Damages
• Pain And Suffering
• Mental Anguish
