What Compensation is Available?
A pedestrian accident can be caused by the reckless behavior of a distracted driver, who could be texting, using a cell phone, or eating, among other things. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), sending a text message averts the driver’s eyes from the road for about 4.6 seconds. If proven that another’s negligence was the cause of your accident, you may be compensated for losses including the following:
- Medical Bills: This may include physical therapy, multiple doctor visits, hospital and emergency visits, and massage therapy.
- Loss of Wages: Sometimes the accident can be debilitating and limit your options to return to work immediately. You can be compensated for the loss wages accrued after your accident.
- Pain and Suffering: After a pedestrian accident, you can experience physical and emotional pain and suffering.
- Wrongful Death: If you have lost a loved one in a pedestrian accident, no amount of compensation can replace the devastation. Our goal is to make sure that the negligent party is held responsible for their actions and that you receive compensation for funeral expenses, loss of help, and other damages.
