What Should I Do After a Pedestrian Accident?
After a pedestrian accident, it is critical that you take certain steps to protect your rights and your health. You will likely have to submit a claim against the driver's insurance company, and you will need to gather evidence and make a record of your injuries. You will also have to deal with any medical bills that you have incurred.
At Posch Law Firm, we can help you navigate the claims process and make sure that you get the compensation you need to recover.
What Damages Are Available in a Pedestrian Accident Case?
Pedestrian accident victims can generally sue for three types of damages:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
Medical expenses include all of the costs associated with your treatment. You will need to pay for medical care, as well as any medications, physical therapy, and other treatments that you need. Lost wages account for the wages that you would have earned if you had not been injured, but your damages will likely be limited to your loss of earnings during the time that you were unable to work. Your pain and suffering damages will account for the mental anguish that you have experienced due to your injuries.
In addition to these three types of damages, you might also be able to sue for additional damages if the driver was texting while driving or if the driver was under the influence of alcohol or drugs. You might also be able to sue the city if the accident occurred on a road that was poorly designed. All of these factors can affect the total amount of damages that you can recover.
