An attorney can help gather all available evidence to build your claim, hire medical and financial experts if necessary, and calculate the value of your claim.

Spinal cord injuries and brain injuries are also very common in pedestrian accidents. The severity of the injury depends on the impact of the pedestrian-vehicle collision.

Compensation for pedestrian accident injuries can include economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages come with a calculated price, such as medical bills, lost wages, pharmacy expenses, loss of earning capacity, and future medical costs. Non-economic losses often include compensation for pain, suffering, disability, and disfigurement.

In fatal injury cases, certain surviving family members can collect compensation for their losses, such as funeral expenses and loss of financial support. Punitive damages are sometimes awarded in pedestrian accident cases when the defendant’s conduct was egregious.
