What damages can be recovered in pedestrian accident cases?

Posted by: Personal Injury Attorney  

What damages can be recovered in pedestrian accident casesAccidents between pedestrians and vehicles are a terrifying occurrence, but they are not altogether uncommon.  It is imperative for any parties that have been involved in one of these scenarios to contact our pedestrian accident lawyer in Los Angeles immediately.  Here is a look at some of the damages that the responsible party may be obligated to pay during any settlements or verdicts.

As with all accidents, safety comes first.  Any injured parties must be taken to a safe location or the hospital immediately.  Neither of these actions are an admission of guilt.  To determine what damages can be recovered after one of these accidents though, either the insurance companies or the courts are going to have to thoroughly investigate the situation.  This is especially true for more severe injuries, deaths, or if any illegal activity took place during the accident, such as one party being under the influence of alcohol.

Ideally, the party that is at fault is going to be responsible from almost any costs that come about as a result of the accident.  This may include mental trauma, a loss of wages due to an inability to work, medical bills, and pain and suffering.  If the driver is at fault, their insurance will be responsible for covering some, if not all of the costs.  If the pedestrian was at fault, the driver may need to take them to court for any claims.

No matter the circumstances, our Los Angeles pedestrian accident attorney is here to help.  Contact us today to begin your journey to recovery and compensation.
