Strong Legal Representation For Life's Toughest Moments

Pedestrians can face serious injuries when they are hit

Many things can lead to a pedestrian being involved in an accident with a motor vehicle. In almost all of these incidents, the person who was walking will need to have emergency medical care to address the injuries they suffer. This can be costly, and the person may be admitted into the hospital for a considerable amount of time. We understand that this changes your life in a major way, but you might have an option for reducing the financial impact the accident has on you.

If the accident was caused by the other driver's negligence, you might choose to seek compensation for the wreck. This is done through the civil court system and enables you to hold the driver financially accountable for the damages you suffered.

When you are thinking about what you are going to list as your monetary damages, you need to consider several factors. One of these is your medical care costs. This includes the past and future expenses that are related to the crash. You won't have an exact amount for your future medical bills, but we can use similar cases to come up with an estimate of what they will cost.

You also have to determine the monetary damages you suffered from being unable to work. This includes the wages you lost but also involves any benefits that you didn't receive because of missing work. We can work with you to figure this out so that you can include it in your claim.

Other damages, such as those for pain and suffering, might also be possible. We can review the possible points with you, so we can determine which ones are going to apply to your case.
