What Compensation am I entitled to?

If you’ve considered discussing your circumstances with an experienced injury lawyer, you’ll want to know about getting compensated for your injuries and your pain and suffering.  Your lawyer will be able to evaluate your case and determine what it is worth.  The term “damages” is commonly used in these types of cases to determine what a person’s injuries have cost them emotionally and financially as well as physically.  In most cases, you might be entitled to compensation for:

  Emotional distress
  Hospital and medical bills
  Lost income (past and future)

  Pain and suffering
  Prescription medications
  Physical and/or rehabilitative therapy

In pedestrian accidents, the victim is at a greater risk of sustaining serious injuries such as fractures that must be surgically repaired, internal bleeding, spinal cord trauma, and traumatic brain injuries.  When clients suffer such serious injuries, the BEAB Personal Injury Lawyer feels you deserve aggressive representation and serious compensation.

A common Misconception

In motor vehicle-pedestrian accidents, there is a common misconception that the person who is walking is always in the right.  However, this isn’t always true.  Granted, motorists owe a specific duty of care to those individuals on foot.  But pedestrians are also responsible for their own safety as well as that of others.  There is a very complex mixture of common and statute law that can be confusing when trying to determine who the at-fault party truly is, hence the need for an experienced personal injury lawyer.

There are a number of liability pitfalls in motor vehicle- pedestrian accidents that you don’t want to get caught in.  If you or a loved one was struck by a moving vehicle and serious injured in the process, you could be entitled to compensation.  For more information, call the BEAB Personal Injury Lawyer and schedule a FREE consultation appointment.  Let us evaluate your case and determine the amount of compensation you may be entitled to.
