If you have been injured by a vehicle as a pedestrian, you should seek legal action to receive the compensation you deserve. No matter the severity, getting in an accident is an extremely traumatic event, and if it’s severe, it can be an expensive incident. As soon as possible, you should begin to search for legal help.
When you choose our team at JD Haas & Associates, we will take the time to get to know you and your case. We will go through a variety of steps to determine who is at fault, the damages you suffered, and more. Here, our experts will discuss this process in depth so you can see we are the best choice for you in your personal injury case.
Who is at Fault? You or the Driver?
Before your case can proceed, we need to determine who was at fault for the incident. If the driver of the vehicle was at fault, you are more likely to receive compensation and win your case. However, if you were at fault, it would be difficult to make any headway in the case. We consider a variety of factors in the accident. Some of these factors include:
● Did the driver miss a traffic signal, such as a red light?
● Was the driver on his/her phone?
● Was the driver under the influence?
● Did you ignore a traffic signal and walk into traffic?
How Do We Determine Damages?
The damages in any case are used to compensate the person not at fault for the pain and suffering the other party went through. As soon as the fault is determined, your legal team will begin seeking damages. Examples of damages include compensation for:
● The pain and suffering you endured, whether it was minor or extreme
● Losing enjoyment in your life if your life was dramatically altered
● Past, current, and future medical expenses
● The wages you lost or may continue to lose as a result of the accident
After your legal team has determined who is at fault and what damages you could seek compensation for, the process will begin, and your case will eventually be settled.
