Helping Injured Pedestrians Seek Compensation
When cars collide with pedestrians, the potential for serious injury is
extremely high. In the United States, about 5,000 pedestrians are killed
in motor vehicle accidents every year, and according to the National Highway
Traffic Association, 11 percent of these are pedestrian accidents.
Unfortunately, most accidents involving pedestrians have traumatic, even
tragic, outcomes. In most cases this includes temporary or permanent disability,
lost wages, and soaring medical bills. When you are dealing with all this,
it is easy to miss out on all the insurance sources against which you
can make a claim. In fact, most victims of pedestrian accidents aren’t
even aware of all their options.
Common Ways Pedestrians Are Injured
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA),
approximately 75,000 pedestrians suffer injuries in automobile accidents.
Most of these casualties are elderly people over the age of 65 and young
children below 15 years old. A large number of pedestrian accidents can
be traced back to actions of negligent drivers.
Some of the most common causes of pedestrian accidents include:
Even if you were crossing the street at an unmarked crosswalk, you may
still be able to recover some type of compensation. You can discuss your
situation with an attorney to find out more.
Work With An Aggressive Personal Injury Lawyer!
If you or a loved one has been injured due to the negligence of a driver,
you need an aggressive attorney who knows how to examine the evidence,
deal with insurance companies, and secure a fair amount of compensation
for your personal suffering. If someone you love has been killed in a
pedestrian accident, you may be entitled to compensation that extends
beyond the insurance company’s limits. The only problem is, if you
try to handle all these claims and possible court appearances on your
own, you may end up settling for a lot less than if you were represented
by an experienced injury lawyer.
In a case like this, it never pays to go it alone. You will need the advice
and representation of a seasoned attorney who will aggressively pursue
a fair amount of compensation. If your injury occurred in the state of
Colorado, consult with a
