Victims of pedestrian accidents are most likely to endure serious injuries. These types of accidents can be devastating both physically and mentally. The nature of the injuries resulting from pedestrian accidents often render victims unable to work or maintain the active lifestyle they enjoyed prior to the accident. In many cases, pedestrian injuries are a result of accidents caused by a negligent driver. It is important to contact Indianapolis accident lawyers immediately following an accident to determine whether or not you can secure compensation for your injuries.
The crippling nature of injuries that result from pedestrian accidents can include but are not limited to bone fracture, lacerations, back injuries, spinal injuries, and loss of life or limb. Because of the severity of injuries related to this type of accident, an individual can incur overwhelming medical bills, lost wages, the inability to work indefinitely, and mental anguish. The only way to ensure you and your family can survive comfortably after an accident is to file a lawsuit against the motor vehicle driver and their insurance company.
Establishing negligence is the first step your lawyer will take in beginning to piece together your case. Determining the road conditions, the signage on the street or highway, as well as the driver’s physical condition can help your lawyer build a solid evidence base for establishing negligence. If the accident was a result of a hit and run situation, your attorney can help you seek compensation from alternative sources.
