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 Pedestrian 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. 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.
