We Can Help You Recover Compensation for Your Pedestrian Accident Injuries
We understand how a pedestrian accident can throw your life into disarray. You are undoubtedly dealing with a lot of pain, along with the financial concerns of medical expenses and juggling your other bills, especially if you have had to miss work.
We fight for your rights and help you recover the compensation you deserve. Your settlement could include the following damages:
The size, weight, and speed of a vehicle can do extensive physical damage to a pedestrian. This can necessitate weeks, months, or even a lifetime of medical care, none of which comes inexpensively.
Our car accident attorney will go after the responsible party for the cost of both your current and anticipated future medical costs. These include surgeries, hospital stays, doctor copays, prescription drugs, long-term care costs, and more.
If your injury was severe, you might be looking at weeks or months away from work. This can put a big dent in your income, even if you have disability insurance or other benefits. An injury attorney will seek compensation from the responsible party to pay you for the income you missed out on during your time away from work.
Reduced Earning Capacity
Even once you return to work, a severe injury can continue to affect you. If your injury diminished your long-term capacity to earn a living, we will demand that the responsible party make up the difference between your previous and current income. We will also be sure to account for any promotions or raises you may have received.
“Pain and Suffering” and Inconvenience
The law in Virginia allows you to demand compensation not just for your financial losses but for “pain and suffering” as well. We will help you recover money for the physical and emotional distress you have been through. We will also demand compensation for the inconvenience your injuries have caused (e.g., having to go to doctor’s appointments, having to take prescriptions every day, etc.)
We Help You Recover Damages for All Kinds of Pedestrian Accidents
We want to hear from you no matter how your accident occurred. Here are a few common scenarios for which we have helped clients recover compensation:
Accident Resulting from a Failure to Yield
This occurs when a pedestrian is in a crosswalk or otherwise has the right of way, and a motorist does not yield, causing an accident.
Collision Caused by Speeding
Even if you were not in a crosswalk when your accident happened, we may be able to hold the driver liable if they were exceeding the speed limit at the time of the collision.
Parking Lot Accidents
Parking lots are notoriously chaotic. This can make it hard to determine fault when an injury occurs. We will investigate your parking lot accident thoroughly, collecting all the evidence we can find to show that the driver was negligent.
Hit and Run Accidents
After a pedestrian accident, some drivers, fearing criminal or civil repercussions, decide to flee the scene, hoping law enforcement will be unable to identify them.
We can work to track down the hit and run driver who injured you and hold them fully accountable for what they did.
