Seeking Compensation for Accident Victims
The dangerous nature of pedestrian accidents results in many catastrophic and fatal injuries such as:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Fractured arms, legs, hips and ribs
- Scarring and disfigurement
Unfortunately, these injuries may lead to temporary or permanent disability, or in the worst cases, wrongful death.
To collect the damages you are entitled to receive from the negligent party, you will most likely need an attorney. We know how to fight insurance companies for full and fair compensation. Working with medical experts, life-care planners and economists, we will build a strong case or compensation. We seek damages for past and future medical bills, lost income and related expenses.
If the driver who caused the accident was drunk, we can seek punitive damages in addition to the compensatory damages. Drunk, distracted and reckless driving is one of the most common causes of pedestrian accidents.
