Recovering Compensation for Pedestrian Accidents | Available Damages
Many of the same damages available in a car accident are permitted in a vehicle-pedestrian accident. These include things like:
- Medical costs
- Lost time away from work
- Loss of future earning capacity
- Loss of enjoyment of life
Generally, there will be no property damage in a pedestrian case, but the other damages in a pedestrian accident can be very severe and add up quickly.
Recovering Compensation for Pedestrian Accidents | Common Injuries
Injuries in a pedestrian accident can be severe. Some of the most common injuries include:
- Brain damage, including traumatic brain injuries
- Broken bones
- Spinal cord injuries
- Lacerations and abrasions
- Back and spine injuries
Because a vehicle will often push you into another object, such as the ground, another car, or a tree, the chances for internal damage increase significantly. It is critical to get medical attention immediately after this type of accident. You may not be able to tell right away just how severely injured you are.
