What is Pedestrian Accident Compensation?

Simply put, pedestrian accident compensation is financial restitution awarded to individuals who have been hurt in an accident as a pedestrian. This compensation is meant to cover various damages, from medical expenses to emotional trauma.

However, knowing what you're eligible for and actually securing compensation are two different things. Expert navigation through the legal system is often necessary, which is why having the right representation can make all the difference.

Types of Damages You May Be Compensated For

When it comes to pedestrian accidents, the types of compensation you can seek include, but aren't limited to, medical costs, loss of income, and pain and suffering. These are just the tip of the iceberg in terms of what your claim might encompass.

At Accident Legal Assist , we'll help you understand the various categories of damages you're due, considering not just present losses but also future expenses related to your accident.

First Steps After a Pedestrian Accident

If you're involved in an accident as a pedestrian, your health is paramount. Before anything else, seeking medical attention is essential, not only for your well-being but also as a record for any future claim.

Documenting everything about the accident is another crucial step. This documentation includes contacting law enforcement to file a report, taking photos of the scene, and gathering witness statements if possible.

Insurance companies are a necessary part of the compensation process, but they can also be one of the most challenging aspects to handle. Their goal is often to settle claims quickly and for as little as possible, which is why having us in your corner is vital.

Understanding Comparative Fault

In some cases, the defense may try to claim that the pedestrian was partly at fault for the accident. This concept, known as comparative fault, can be complex and potentially reduce your compensation.

However, don't be discouraged. We have a strong record of counteracting these claims and highlighting the full extent of the driver's responsibility. Your rights as a pedestrian are paramount, and we'll fight to protect them.
