A pedestrian accident can overwhelming for the victim, so it is important to get as much information as possible regarding the law and options for holding reckless individuals accountable.
In many instances, insurance companies will offer a claimant a settlement amount much lower than he or she may actually need or be entitled to recover. Insurance companies may also attempt to delay or deny valid claims. Unless you know how to handle insurance companies like skilled attorneys do, you may find this process much more difficult and frustrating than it should be.
With a Waco TX car accident lawyer helping you, you may better your chances of obtaining full and just compensation in addition to avoiding stressful encounters with insurance adjusters.
The Extent of Damages
Pedestrian accidents often lead to pedestrians recovering from catastrophic injuries such as broken bones, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury (TBI), and more. The medical expenses that typically come with these injuries can be significant. However, the care, attention, and treatment are necessary for a person to literally get back on their feet again. Whether you are struggling to pay hospital bills, surgery fees, or other expenses, seeking compensation through a claim or lawsuit can make a world of difference.
Compensation may also be awarded for emotional distress, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, and anxiety, to name a few. An accident is frequently life altering not just for the person who sustained injuries, but also for his or her family members. As such, money may be provided for loss of consortium and other non-economic damages.
Because an accident survivor often needs to take time off of work to recover, he or she may receive restitution for lost wages and benefits. This may also apply to someone who can no longer work due to the severity of his or her injuries.
