Pedestrian Accident Lawyer Serving Danbury
A pedestrian can be struck by a bus, car, motorcycle or bicyclist resulting in severe injuries such as broken bones, brain and spinal cord injuries resulting in permanent disability or in the most devastating cases, wrongful death. Living or working in a metropolitan area where pedestrian injuries are common creates a terrible hazard for children in particular, who are often the victim in such cases. Long-term medical treatment and rehabilitation is frequently necessary for attempting to recover from the injuries and return to the healthy condition prior to the accident.
If you or a loved one have been injured in a pedestrian accident it is critical to have all accident reports, police reports, witness statements, medical reports, medical bills, and loss of income documentation as part of the claim filed to recover compensation for damages. It is vital that you speak with an attorney who can help you with filing your accident case. You must make sure that all claims are filed correctly and in a timely manner, as insurance companies are frequently reluctant to pay and may try to reduce the claim.
It must be established who was liable for your personal injury accident. If there was a fatality you need to take legal action to fight to ensure that all benefits and compensation are paid to the surviving family members. This is the time when you need a lawyer experienced in the area of personal injury to help you address all of the details and to pursue maximum compensation for the injuries and other damages suffered. If the insurance benefits are inadequate then it may be necessary to file a lawsuit to pursue further compensation for damages. If criminal wrongdoing, such as drunk driving was involved, punitive damages will likely be sought. An attorney can help you explore any other possible recourse in your specific case.
